Blackbird 4K Mini 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.
4K Ultra HD: Supports all HDMI video resolutions up to 4K @30Hz, including 1080p @60Hz.
2x HDMI® Outputs: Distribute 4K UHD HDMI video from a single source to two high-resolution displays.
USB-Powered: 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.

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.

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 ;)
