Question

Will this switch feed my Chromecast device to my TV?

Will this switch feed my Chromecast device through to my TV? I have a Monoprice switch that won't. This is a problem as my Sony TV has only one HDMI input.

Question

2 HDMI selective inputs, one cable with switched sources. Will splitter work on "too smart TV"between cable end & the 2 HDMI inputs?

I have a Cable box & a Blu-Ray player feeding through a HDMI switch to a single HDMI cable in a wall to my TV location. Switching worked fine with my old single HDMI input TV but my "smart" TV with 2 HDMI inputs only accepts the cable signal at HDMI 1 & the Blu-Ray at HDMI 2 necessitating moving the single cable manually to either input and selecting the appropriate input on the TV screen. Will the splitter solve the problem if I choose the source feed at my switch and select the HDMI input on screen since the splitter sends the same signal to both TV inputs? ( Seems like it should.) Maybe?

Appreciate the answer and found that the splitter would not work for the DVD player. The copyright protection feature may be the issue and/or it could be Comcast blocking splitters as others have noted. Will return the Rockfish promptly.

With HDCP (High Definition Copyright Protection) most likely causing the issue, I'm unable to answer your question. There are many variables, so in this instance I would suggest trying your idea under the 14 day return policy.

Question

FIRESTICK TV and this splitter

Can I use the Firestick TV dongle as the source at the input to this splitter to run two HD TVs from it? Will there be a problem if one of the TVs is not HDCP compliant?

Anytime there are changes to HDMI signal between the Source and TV, things get hinky. Even to the point of some content will play while others will not. I would suggest testing the setup rather extensively under the 14 day return/exchange policy.

Question

How many TVs can I connect wirelessly to the rocketfish?

I have 3 HDTVs mounted on 3 different floors of a house. Can I connect all 3 back to one computer over the wireless network using the rocketfish? I would like to basically broadcast the same powerpoint to all 3 TVs at one time over the wifi network.

I used the Rocketfish - 2-Way HDMI Splitter to do it and it worked. I wanted to connect my analog Onkyo receiver (with 2 great Polk speakers) to my Samsung Bluray to play music, and use the BluRay also for movies, to my Samsung Smart TV. I also got an HDMI to Analog converter in the chain. Works well, only downside is that the TV seems to come on when I use the Bluray for Music, but I can turn it off.

This Best Buy splitter will work, take the HDMI from the cable box and plug into the input of the splitter then the two outputs to the TVs . I suggest you have an RF cable remote for Syrah channels from the other room.

I had a similar issue as the responder to this question. I disagree with Rocketfish's response. I believe this is a sync issue, and not an HDCP issue. The HDMI splitter could hold sync with the source when devices are turned on and off, or modifified in any way.

Additionally, the assertion that Rocketfish cannot deal with the HDCP issues is also false as some competitive products do include a vChip which decrypts the copy protected content before sending it on to the outputs. As expected, they are significantly more expensive than this unit.

I had trouble with my rocketfish splitter as well. The signal goes away and comes back twice each time I turn on one of the two devices or each time I turn them off.

Some devices will not allow Copyrighted material to play through a splitter. Unfortunately we do not have a way to force devices, it will be dependent on the High Definition Copyright Protection that your source device is using.

Are you making sure that you have it plugged into the right ports? TV going into output and PS3 going into input? Do you have the PS3 settings correctly configured to run HDMI? Try holding down the PS3 Power button for about 30 seconds until it beeps two separate times. This will bring you into the system configuration settings for the Playstations Basic setup settings.

Question

Compatibility with Rogers Cable box

Hi,

I'm having problems using this splitter with a Rogers cable box (Scientific Atlanta Explorer 4250 HD). The Rogers box displays a message claiming that the splitter is an illegal device and shuts down HDMI output. I guess it has something to do with HDCP protection. Have you had success using this splitter with Rogers cable/satellite sources?

Cheers

Question

Getting 3D pass through to work

I have a 3D TV, a 3D DVD Player, a 3D capable Direct TV receiver, and a Denon non 3D AVR. What do I need to be able to watch 3D movies and still use the Denon for surround sound? I bought this 2 way splitter thinking it would split the HDMI Monitor so that I could use the TV for display, but it didn't work. All I got was audio. Do I need a 3 way splitter? A Switcher? I only have one HDMI input going to the TV because it is mounted on the wall and there is only one HDMI outlet on the wall so I am unable to plug any additional HDMI cords into the TV itself. I had it connected through the Denon at one point and was able to see a 3D movie with surround sound, but then I could not get the display to go back to direct TV. All I got was sound. Any ideas? Maybe a 3 way splitter?

Your best bet is to get a 3d compatible HDMI reciver to use to handle your audio and switching between your sources. I have the same sort of set up with one wall port and works perfectly. My reciver even turns the TV on for me as well.

You may want to try a powered splitter. Plug the feed into the input and the output to 1) TV, 2) receiver. See if that will work. If not, BB will be fine with you returning it. Ask a salesman in the A/V section and tell them what you are going to try, this way if it doesn't work it will be even easier to return.
You may be loosing the signal because it's not strong enough, that's why you want a powered splitter. Oh yes, it's a Rocketfish model # RF-G1182.
