    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.
    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 splitter pass Dolby Digital and DTS?

    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.
    will video play at same time on both screens?
    Luis H on Feb 2, 2017
    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: http://www.monoprice.com/mobile/product/details/15261?maincategoryid=101&categoryid=10110&subcategoryid=1011002&cpncd=

    What is the current draw on this spliter?
    A shopper on Jun 13, 2017
    Will this split a Arc hdmi, so you can switch between devices?
    A shopper on Jul 24, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: No, this splits one source out to two receiver devices such as TV’s or AV receivers. So it could send video content out to 2 TV’s or a TV and projector at the same time.
    What does the COPY/AUTO switch next to the power input do?
    Angela S on Dec 10, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: It affects how the EDID info (Extended display identification data) is passed to the input port. Copy forces the device to always use the port 2 EDID. Auto lets the splitter pick which EDID to use.
    From the manual for#15379, a similar model.
    EDID Mode:
    Copy Mode: copy output 2 EDID to input port.
    Auto Mode: compare output port 1 and 2 EDID.
    Is there a distance limitation of the Outputs? I want to make sure that I wouldn't need an Active HDMI cable or if I just need to go with the standard power supply. Thanks
    A shopper on Jul 6, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: I use this splitter to send signal to one television that is 50 feet away and another that is 100 feet away and the picture quality is great for both screens.
    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 tech@monoprice.com.
    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 depends...is 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
    BEST ANSWER: Hello, thank you for your question. Unfortunately we do not have an electronic version of the manual that can be downloaded. I apologize for the inconvenience

    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

    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.

    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.

    Correct the web page for this
    This unit does not use mini USB! It uses *micro* USB. I bought three of these with an assortment of angle up, angle right, angle left... mini USB adapters and cables so I can end up with a clean rack when I'm done, and I can't use any of them. Now I have to purchase the equivalent adapters, connectors and short cables in micro USB. If it was spelled out properly on the web site, there would have been no problems.

    Works for streaming PS3 and PS4
    I bought this to help me connect my game systems to my Elgato HD60 Pro so that I can stream games on twitch.tv without worrying about the HDCP getting in the way. It works perfectly for this purpose with both PS3 and PS4. Thought other people looking for a solution would like to know ;)

    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.

    Blackbird 4K Mini USB-Powered 1x2 HDMI Splitter
    Solid build and the feel is heavy duty. Easy to use, just plug and play. I use it to connect a TV and a projector and the source is from AVR. It works like a charm. The display will go blank for a few seconds if you disconnect any one of the output.

    One for Two
    This unit works excellent. I am able to split my TV feed to two different big screen TV's with no visible loss of signal.

    It has done everything I hoped it would do. A great purchase at a fantastic price.

    Answer to my needs
    Quite a neat little box. Powers off of the USB on the back of a Dish Joey and splits signal from a bedroom TV to an outdoor TV. Big issue is the HD HDCP handshake and many don't work well. This unit works just fine...
