    Default HDMI splitter can it be done?

    Could I split a HDMI signal to 2 displays?

    Yes, but you can't just use a simple "y" cable. HDMI splitters are splitter/amplifiers, such as this one.

    Thanks Tbone, just what I'm looking for. Not even sure why they would build just a splitter if they don't work, but need something like above.

    I have a 4 in 2 out that I am not using anymore. If interested I will sell reasonably, or trade for something interesting.

    Ok here's what I like to do, run an XBox 360 as a media extender to a LCD tv via HDMI. Split the HDMI from XBox 360 to run LCD and feed a HDMI to RCA, to feed a modulator to feed 2 other tv's in the house on a local inside channel feed. So not looking for anything to switch in or out, but just to split A and B outputs.

    Just a FYI, I use the Monoprice splitter to run to out from my receiver to my Panasonic plasma and my projector. I've never had a problem with it, works perfectly. Here is the splitter I used:

    I have heard good things about that little unit. I know it sucks we can't just SPLIT the signal anymore, but HDCP and all that makes it impossible. That and the digital signal is VERY touchy! That being said, that unit does not "Officially" support HDCP... Most people say it works fine, but there are a couple people who have had issues.

    Yeah, I had a problem with my HTPC and HDCP, but I just run Anydvd to bypass and it works fine.
