This small but powerful little box takes the signal from a single HDMI source and splits it to up to four different televisions, monitors, or other display devices. With support for the newest 1080p and 3D technology, modern humans can benefit just as well.
Set-up is easy and requires just the splitter, cables, and an available wall outlet. The HDMI-4SPLITTER is also compatible with IR over HDMI systems. These are generally small adapters that go on the end of HDMI cables which allows the cables to be used as an IR extension. This lets the user change channels outside of line-of-sight without having to purchase a full IR repeater kit. These adapters are not included but can be easily purchased separately.
With great digital power comes great digital responsibility. Many new HDMI devices have to adhere to the most recent wave of copy protection called High-bandwidth Digital Copy Protection, or HDCP. New devices are issued codes and they are programmed to have to check them against a large database of approved codes in order for your electronics to send and receive signals. HDCP basically acts like a bouncer, checking the IDs of every device at the door to ensure no authorized entries are made.
This process, known as the HDMI handshake, isn’t flawless and errs on the side of caution every time. If you’re having trouble with the transmission of audio, video, or both, there are a couple of common, easy fixes. Just like in every other type of technology, the first thing to try is a reboot. Turn your equipment off for a few minutes and then switch it back on. The next step, if a reboot proves unsuccessful, is to unplug your devices and connect them again in a different order. It usually works best to start with the device that supports the lowest resolution. For example, if one of your screens is 1080p and the other is 720p, connect to the 720p first. Still having issues?
