    My TV only have 1 hdmi input, this splitter can be used to connect 2 consoles simultaneously?
    Aldo C on Dec 8, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Hello, this is a splitter and opposite of an HDMI switch. You will be looking for this item.


    I hope this helps and thank you for your question!
    My TV has only 2 HDMI ports. One is being used for cable the other my DVD player. I want to also use my Chrome-cast. Can I use this splitter on one HDMI port with the Chrome-cast and dvd player if I use them separately?
    JOHN C on Jan 10, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: Yes you can, I bought it to split one signal to two tvs at the same time. That won't work, because it can't maintain the signal strength. But if I'm only using one signal at a time it works fine. You should be ok John
    Can hdr signal pass through?
    Pablo H on Jan 13, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: This never worked for me, period.
    "Note that this splitter does not pass the HDCP copy protection information, so it is unsuited for use in home theater systems. Please use one of our powered splitters for home theater applications."

    What splitter works with HDCP? I can't find anything via the search. Looking for something like this, but that is compatible.
    A shopper on May 23, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. You would want to use a powered HDMI splitter. Such as the 1x2 HDMI Splitters we have listed here:


    These splitters will support HDCP copy protection information for use in home theater systems.

    Should you require additional assistance, please reach out to our technical support team with a detailed question via any of the methods available here:

    I have one HDMI output on my laptop. I need to give Video to projector and Audio to Soundbar, will this splitter work in this scenario? PlayFi actually shows some delay in audio
    New User U on Feb 25, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I've bought 3 types of HDMI splitters from this co. The pigtail type, the nuckle type and a piece of equipment like a stereo component NONE OF THEM WORKED AT ALL ! Signal was degraded to the point of being unusuable ...

    Works, but only when both outputs are on
    If the item description had said that both outputs had to be on otherwise neither would display, I wouldn't have ordered it as I doesn't fit my needs as is. Had to file a tech support request to find out that it's intended to work that way.

    PROS: Works fine for splitting a signal to 2 outputs...

    CONS: ....but both outputs have to be on and displaying the split signal, otherwise neither will out.

    worked for me
    Used splitter for a 6 run to my 50 panasonic plasma and a 40 run to my 42 panasonic plasma. Struggled for two weeks with having to disconnect cables then reattach to get signal from direct tv receiver to both sets. By trial and error I finally found that if I turn the 50 panny on first then turn on the 42 panny I would receive a signal for both. If I turned on the 42 on first, I would not receive a signal to either tv. I am now very happy with this splitter. You may have to try different combinations of powering on to receive signal.

    No worky with PS3
    Did not work with PS3 to two displays regardless of how many displays were on or off or unconnected. I should have knew better with all the HDCP compliant stuff and especially with Sony.

    Monitors were Panasonic plasmas 58 & 42

    Probably won't work with a computer
    I wanted to clone my Windows 7 PC's video output to both my monitor and the big TV on the other side of the room (through a 30' HDMI cable). I knew this was kind of a naive approach, but figured for 5 bucks it was worth a shot.

    Anyway, when both displays are connected, Windows gets confused. I quickly realized this is because HDMI is bidirectional (duh). Not only are video and sound being sent from the source to the display, but the display also sends information back about itselfsupported resolutions, refresh rates, color modes, etc. This works fine with a single monitor, but when multiple displays are connected to the same video card output, Windows receives conflicting messages and isn't sure what to make of the situation.

    Bottom line, it "worked" in the sense that the image from my PC was being displayed on both the monitor and TV, but the only resolution Windows would allow was 640x480. I couldn't get sound either neither display appeared in the audio "playback devices" list.

    So, I don't know. I can't fault the splitter itself. Build quality is usual Monopricechunky, durable, very good for the price. Electrically, it does what it says. However, you'll probably have a hard time finding an application for it because of how HDMI's communication protocol works.

    PROS: Cheap, well made, does indeed split the signal

    CONS: Actual HDMI devices probably won't know what to make of it

    Another failed $5 mirror attempt.
    Attempted to connect two HDMI monitors (DELL ST220T, 1080p) to a Windows PC to mirror the image on both. Got a picture with a lot of snow on one, and a distorted image on the other. The second monitor was only recognized as 640x480, and the horizontal sync was off. Tried other hardware, the faults appear to be consistent for each of two slots on the splitter, even with only a single monitor plugged in. Useless. Will try my luck with a powered splitter.

    Inexpensive solution for dual monitors
    We use it to direct the output of Apple TV to two HDTV's. Works perfectly, and the built-in input cable eliminates one of the HDMI cables required by our previous (defective) active splitter.

    PROS: Low price, solid build, built in input cable

    CONS: Passive splitter may not work for all situations.

    This device did not work for my intended application. I wanted to connect 2 TV's with a single source coming from my cable box but display will not show. It can only handle one TV at a time.

    Response from Monoprice

    Thank you for your review and truly sorry to hear about the experience you have had with PID 2522. I should mention that this product is a passive splitter and works best for short cable runs. If looking to use long HDMI cables to each TV, I recommend instead trying a powered splitter with an amplifier built in such as PID 8154 ( http://www.monoprice.com/Product?c_id=101&cp_id=10113&cs_id=1011306&p_id=8154&seq=1&format=2&rep=gab ). PID 8154 would be able to support signals up to 49ft. If you would like, I can help setup an RMA for a return on PID 2522. If you wanted to proceed with the RMA, please let me know and I can get that started right away. Apologies again for any inconvenience this may have caused and hope this helps!

    A mistake that came in handy.
    I actually purchased this splitter on accident thinking that I could split my HDMI input signal... But once I realized what it actually was I had and easy way to display my pictures on mutiple screens.

    Does not work
    I intended to split a relatively short (6ft) HDMI run from a TV STB between TV and AV receiver. The TV would show something for a split second and then an error message cant use HDMI - no HDCP. There was nothing coming through to the receiver. Great idea but needs more work.

    Video/Audio Splitter - HDMI® M to HDMI® F X 2
    could not use.

    PROS: Monoprice has always been the best quality.

    CONS: Does not send DHCP signal for home theater.

    My fault.
