Question:

What if my displays are different sizes?


Answer:

The splitter will send the lowest common resolution to both displays. The splitter has to send the exact same signal to both displays, and defaults to the lowest common denominator so that both displays will work. That means if you have a 1080p television and a 720p television both will get a 720p signal from the splitter.

Question:

Do both displays need to be on at the same time?


Answer:

No. Televisions will generally continue to send a standby signal even when they’re turned off. You can watch on either television, or both, without worrying about changing your setup.

Question:

What’s the difference between an HDMI Splitter and an HDMI Switch?


Answer:

An HDMI splitter takes one video source and splits the signal to multiple displays. An HDMI Switch takes multiple sources and lets you switch between them to send signal into a single display. If you want to run two TVs from one BluRay player you need a splitter. If you want to attach two BluRay players to one TV you need a switch.

Question:

What is EDID, and why does it matter?


Answer:

EDID, or Extended Display Identification Data, is the digital handshake that HDMI devices send to each other from both sides of the cable run. The HDMI splitter manages and reconciles the EDID handshakes from both displays with the EDID handshake from the video source so that everything runs smoothly and correctly.

Question:

What is HDCP, and does this splitter support it?


Answer:

High-bandwidth Digital Copy Protection is a signal that is bundled with copyrighted, digitally distributed video and audio in order to prevent piracy. This splitter fully supports HDCP, passing that signal along to both displays.
