The 280702 1x2 splitter comes with the most up-to-date HDMI specifications including 3D, 4K resolutions, and even 7.1 Dolby surround sound.

Set-up is simple. In addition to the 280702 HDMI splitter, you need HDMI cables and an available outlet. This box must be plugged in to work, but it comes with a 5v power supply. This splitter is also compatible with Vanco’s Super IR system for running IR over HDMI. Additional adapters are required for use of the Super IR feature.
Shake it Up
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?

4x2 HDMI Matrix Switch
Gadgets and Gizmos Aplenty?
You want what you want, and you won’t be held back. While cables boxes, Blu-ray players, gaming consoles, and computers pile up around you, the sad fact is that your television isn’t going to magically grow new HDMI ports. Eventually, you’re going to run out of space. Sometimes plugging and unplugging cables from the TV is convenient enough, but it’s not the most efficient and undue handling can damage the HDMI board. If you don’t have surround sound, you don’t want to spend the money on a receiver, and what it you want to send your signal to multiple displays? With FireFold’s HDMI-4X2-MATRIX, you can connect up to four devices to two different televisions.
This 4x2 HDMI Matrix Switch is a switch and a splitter all in one. It is perfect for offices, churches, and advanced home theaters. This all-HDMI switch has four inputs for your devices and two outputs to your displays. There are even two additional audio outs- one optical and one analog RCA- for connecting to a separate surround sound or pair of speakers. There’s no need to sacrifice quality for flexibility, either. This device can handle all the bells and whistles of HDMI including 3D, deep color 1080p, and both compressed and uncompressed audio formats.
The set-up is as easy as connecting the dots. Selecting which device to view and where to view it can be done manually through the use of a button or by the provided IR remote. The remote requires line of sight, but there is an input for an IR extension in case your switch is hidden behind walls or doors. This switch requires the use of the included power supply and you may need additional HDMI cables. Occasionally, repeaters and equalizers have been known to cause interference with HDMI switches and splitters so regular or RedMere HDMI cables is suggested.
