    BEST ANSWER: No it’s a straight pass through device it has no ability to send or receive any type of wireless signal.
    Can I use this to split a 4K signal from Xbox One S and run a video signal to the TV and audio to an older receiver to maintain original audio, like Dolby HD Master?
    A shopper on Feb 2, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. This unit would only upscale to 4K, it would only accept up to 1080p on the input. Using a splitter like PID 21612 would be best.

    However, keep in mind it is best to use an HDMI audio extractor for setups like you are trying to achieve. Reason being is the splitter may choose the common resolution that the TV and receiver support thus outputting 1080p to the TV if that is what your receiver supports.

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

    Did not work for me
    I needed it to allow feeding to two separate TV's. One a 75 inch Sony UHD and the other a small Sony ND. It would not feed the large Sony without it continuously shutting the video on and off no matter how I connected it. I am a retired electronic design engineer and regularly connect AV systems so generally know what is wrong and how to correct. Not in this case.

    PROS: Nice shipment box.

    CONS: Could not get it to work no matte how I tried.

    Did not work properly
    Item looks great but the signal flickered. I had to reconnect several times. Im running one 30ft cable 24awg to the tv. I have to return this one

    PROS: looks good

    CONS: flickering signal

    This is the ONE if you want to split your HDMI incoming signal to two devices at the same time without switching problems. The device allows a device to be cut off or on without any interference. Also the audio formats are fully supported for surround modes. Get one especially if your device is 4K and another is 1080p no handshake issues.

    PROS: Slim and compact, no handshake issues on either sending or receiving signals...

    CONS: Wish the power cord was 15-20 feet for even better placement...really a wish. Length is good for most applications.

    Easy to use.
    Does not work on output with HDCP. Tried on the latest Denon receiver. Works with other outputs

    Worked, then failed right after the 30 day warranty
    It was working great, but failed right after the 30 day warranty. Now I have a very expensive paper weight. So disappointed.

    Works fine
    With my old splitter the channel 1 tv would cut out if the channel 2 tv was turned on or off.
    There is no lag with this one.
