Pros:I bought this device to split the signal from my Tivo Premiere to a Sony 45 inch and another smaller TV in another room about 25 feet away. The splitter and the cables I bought worked perfectly, no visual impurities. If the exist, I can't see them!
Cons: None so far.

This HDMI splitter lets you use multiple screens with one HDMI source. Are you interested in using multiple HDMI sources with one HDMI screen? Check out our very own 3x1 HDMI switch.
This reliable HDMI splitter will take any HDMI signal (rev 1.3b) and duplicate the signal, sending the same high definition signal to 2 displays simultaneously.
Note About HDCP
This splitter cannot be used to break HDCP. HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection) is a digital specification developed to prevent the copying of digital audio and video content as it travels across connections. The copyright owners of HDCP don’t allow companies to sell products that allow the removal of the HDCP key.
|We also recommend the new Sewell Premium HDMI Cables. They feature triple shielding, gold plated connectors, and nylon braiding to protect the cable.|
100 Ft. Distance Test with this Splitter
In the video below we show off the distance limitations of our HDMI cable and HDMI splitter using 50 feet of cable between the splitter and the video source, and 50 feet between the splitter and the display (typical HDMI specs limit the signal to 16 feet only).
Splitters vs. Switches
This HDMI splitter will duplicate a single HDMI source on two HDMI displays. This is also sometimes called mirroring. Both displays will show the same video and audio simultaneously, whereas an HDMI switch is very different. A switch on the other hand will take multiple sources and allow you to choose which single source will be displayed on the TV.
Perhaps one of the most important features of a high quality HDMI splitter is HDCP support. HDCP (High Definition Content Protection) not only protects the content from being pirated, but ensures that the content makes it unaltered to the display as long as the rest of your hardware is set up properly.
High Quality Construction
Wire gauges and the high quality construction of this splitter allows for an operating frequency of 225MHz. HDMI 1.3b and 1440p resolutions are supported, future proofing you from many years of future HDMI development. The heavy-duty cool metal enclosure protects the insides and keeps the unit cool by aiding in quick heat absorption and dissipation.
