I am trying to hook up to tv with one HD receiver with HDMI.
Buy a hdmi splitter from monoprice. I am running 4 tv's from one receiver over hdmi.
Passive splitters don't always work. You may have handshake issues with one of the displays. You might use the component outputs with separate audio for one and the hdmi for the other since all outputs are live.
+1 on using the component video jacks.
Have done it several times for 2 TVs. Even use the monoprice Component to composite converter to fix the HD GUI problem on D* when mirroring.
This powered HDMI splitter works great for me:
I ended up doing a short run to TV1 and a long run to TV 2 through my attic. I had some intermittent trouble with a 40' passive cable, so I switched it out for a Redmere HDMI cable and it is working perfectly with the splitter.
I use the same splitter. I run all my components (Hopper, Roku, Apple TV, Blu-ray player, Blu-ray changer, HD DVD player) through a monoprice switch and then to the splitter. It works great and I can watch all my TV components in my bedroom.
I use this one (http://www.amazon.com/Sewell-Powere...9737&sr=8-1&keywords=hdmi+splitter+1+in+2+out) to split one of the outputs from this 4x2 switch (http://www.monoprice.com/products/p...=10110&cs_id=1011002&p_id=5312&seq=1&format=2)...works without issue.
i can see using a switch, but spliters are just begging for issues to start arising these days as hbo and others demand more and more hdcp controls and such.
Coming out of receiver is HDMI, one tv is HDMI other is cable. Is there a switch that will work for this?
buy a switch/splitter with HDCP support !
I have bought 2 HDNI Spliiters from Monoprice.com and they work Great!!!
