    Blackbird 4K USB-Powered 1x2 HDMI Splitter

    The Monoprice Blackbird™ 4K USB-Powered 1x2 HDMI® Splitter allows you to distribute 4K UHD HDMI video from a single source to two high-resolution displays. Rather than using a proprietary AC power adapter, which can get lost in a move and which requires an open AC power socket, it uses a basic USB connection for its power. This allows you to use a standard USB wall charger, a USB charger integrated into a power strip, or an open USB port on your smart TV or Blu-ray Disc™ player. It supports all HDMI video resolutions up to 4K @30Hz, as well as high-definition, multichannel audio.

    Does this work with Roku?
    A shopper on Jan 20, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: It might. I haven't tried. The only thing stopping it might be DRM (Digital Rights Management). As I understand it, DRM makes sure you're not sending output to a HDMI recorder.
    But this IS a very nice unit. I've tried other splitters.... this one just plain works without any trickery.
    What is the difference or benefits between an AMPLIFIER splitter and a POWERED splitter?
    A shopper on Mar 9, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. A POWERED splitter will use a separate power source to provide power to the splitter. Some switches and splitters can be powered by the HDMI signal. An AMPLIFIER splitter can also be powered except it will amplify the HDMI output signal to assist with longer runs but also helps maintain a reliable signal. I hope this helps.
    Does this splitter work in reverse, in other words I only have 2 hdmi plugs on TV with 3 devices to plug in, can 2 devices be connected (using only one at a time) into 1 hdmi plug on TV?
    A shopper on Dec 31, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: No, you'll want to purchase an HDMI switcher 2 x 1. Something like this:
    Will this Pass DTS X and Dolby Atmos? over either output?
    A shopper on Mar 20, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Can not answer Do not have those formats on my receiver
    Does this come with a usb cord for the power?
    Peter A on Mar 4, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. Yes this item will include a Mini-B USB cable to power the unit.

    I am trying to connect my macbook pro to external monitors. will i be able to extend my display to both monitors?
    A shopper on May 11, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: It should work very well for you while giving strong signals to both monitors
    I'm splitting a signal from a dish 722k receiver so I can get hd in my basement. The splitter I bought won't do the job. I only have a 25 ft hdmi cable to power will this one do it?
    A shopper on Apr 5, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. This splitter should have no problem for it uses an external power source, rather than using the HDMI signal for power. It would be recommended to use a thicker gauge HDMI cable for a longer run or using an Active HDMI cable for the output. Should you have questions or concerns, feel free to reach out to us at
    Will this work on rokus?
    New User U on Jan 20, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Probably, but there are many models of Roku and you didn't specify which you have.
    im using tvs with different resolutions. will this display correct res for each or lowest resolution?
    john s on Dec 27, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: It your problem resolution or HDMI VERSION related? At first, I thought my issue was a resolution issue(8" LCD panel on one and UHD TV on the other), but after looking closer at what was happening(each monitor worked on splitter by itself, but not both at same time) Turned out to be a HDMI version issue(LCD panel was ver. 1.0 and TV was ver. 1.2). Since mine was a VERSION issue, this device works GREAT! Both panels receive the SAME resolution from source device. I don't think resolution on the viewing device matters, only source HDMI version matters on bi-directional communication like HDMI! This device allows two DIFFERENT HDMI versions to view, at the same time, from a single source HDMI signal!(Source HDMI version doesn't matter) Each of my monitors are set to different resolutions. Hope this helps!
    Is there a manual that I can download?
    Jon C on Dec 19, 2016

    Works great and Strips HDCP
    I bought this on the chance that it would work with my Slingbox 500. It does work and now I can placeshift from my cable box to the Slingbox via HDMI and then over the internet to my phone or laptop.. It works on all channels. This is $5 cheaper than the popular one on Amazon for using the Slingbox.

    PROS: Inexpensive, strips HDCP, works with Slingbox via HDMI, can be powered via the USB port of the Slingbox.

    CONS: None

    Great little splitter
    Used this to overcome my HDCP 2.2 issue with my older Panasonic plasma tv and my new 4k PVR. Worked like a charm and powering it off my Onkyo AVR was painless.

    Plug it in and forget about it for months.
    I have two Sony Bravia TVs. One in the bedroom, and one in the living room. This splitter drives both TV's.

    I've used AppleTV as input to the splitter.
    I've used my PC as the input to the splitter.

    I can watch TV-1 or TV-2 or BOTH. I leave the splitter plugged in (on) for months at a time. I just turn on the TV(s) that I want to watch.

    Works exactly as advertised
    Does exactly what I need. I needed HDCP kept active so my fire tv stick would not blank the display after my tab turned off. Keeps the HDCP signal alive so the stick keeps the video out put active.

    good price and does the job
    Works well to split the HDMI cable coming out of my computer to monitor so that I can power a bigger TV I use to display information to people when I have meetings in my office.

    Perfect for Streaming or just splitting a signal
    I was looking into getting a basic setup to stream video games and I needed to split the signal from the console, 1 to the monitor 1 to the capture device. This stripped HDCP out and works flawlessly so far as I have not had any issues with it. Picture quality is great and everything is working perfectly. Great price and does what its supposed to. Only downside is the Micro USB cord that comes with it to power the device is super short. I would recommend getting a longer cord.

    Strips HDCP doesnt duplicate in my weird setup
    I picked up this splitter to strip HDCP, and so far as I can tell it does this for me!

    I needed to strip HDCP because firstly I wanted to use my Chromecast Gen 1 with my projector, that doesn't have HDMI nor HDCP. When I use this splitter with my Chromecast Gen 1, the signal properly sends to the projector! However, and this is NO knock on this device, my projector is 720p so I had to do more image processing.

    I had to use an Extron (exact model I can't recall) to scale the image from 1080P to 720P so the projector could display it properly. This worked like a charm and the splitter kept on chugging!

    Not only that, this setup also works for my PS4! Which is a console known for it's HDCP shenanigans. Playing my PS4 on my projector is going to be a tonne of fun, I can't wait :D

    Now, there's only two things I can knock this device for, both I've worked around.

    1. While this is powered by USB, it does not come with a wall adapter to USB. I'm mostly okay with this though as this puts to use one of my old phone adapters that was just collecting dust anyway. Frankly I think it's awesome this thing is powered by USB instead of the old circular DC!
    2. This splitter did not actually duplicate the image for me. Whenever I had my TV and projector plugged in at the same time, it would always favour sending signal only to the TV, no matter the order that things were plugged in! The way I got around this was putting in yet another splitter after this one, and now it fully duplicates the image! I had to use the PID 8204, which last I checked doesn't exist any more, so other splitters are likely to work for you if you're in this scenario too.

    All in all, this SOLVED MY HDCP PROBLEM! The price is right, and I'm so glad Monoprice stocks this! Awww yeah!

    Now to go do some Mario Maker on my wall ;)

    HDMI splitter
    works perfectly to send signal to 2k and 4k tvs at the same time. Very small size is good. The connectors feel cheap and do not seat fully. I like that it gets power from USB port instead of power brick. We are trying to reduce the number of cords and this helps.

    Satisified with simplicity
    The Blackbird 4K USB-Powered 1x2 was just what was advertised. Simple. easy hook up with little to no reduction in picture quality. it is used in a conference area room for display to two 40"+ tvs. Cable distance used is almost 100'. No problem. I would recommend this to others.
