Questions & Answers for Rocketfish - 2-Way HDMI Splitter - Silver

Question

I have 1 HDMI spot on my laptop and I am trying to set up two monitors.

I was told to get this 2-way HDMI Splitter. I have the HDMI cords from monitors plugged into the outputs what goes in the input spot? The box has no English instruction in it for me to read. Only foreign so I am asking here what I need. please. The Geek Squad guy told me I had everything, but I have nothing from the laptop to hook into the spliter inbox. I saw a question on here about 2 monitors and was wondering when I do hook up the monitors will I be able to like have the school book open on one monitor and then word on another monitor, the question said something about having to have two HDMI on my laptop so what do I need if I do not have 2 on laptop. Thank you so much!

The device you are mentioning, only duplicates the input, to 2 monitors. It does not create a "screen extension" like what you are asking for. The only way to do what you are asking is to use 2 different outputs from your laptop, i would suggest the hdmi port for one screen, and then the VGA for the other screen. Then go into your graphics properties and make sure its on "extend" instead of Duplicate.

Probably not. The splitter will duplicate the same signal to 2 monitors or TVs. It won't act as a video card. Some people use a splitter to do presentations, etc...

From the video out, HDMI, DVI, VGA on your laptop, it will run to the splitter then to the monitors. If your laptop is DVI, VGA, SVG you will need an HDMI adapter. Something like that.

This device will not do that, your best bet is to run all devices straight to your TV, and then use the optical port out of the back of your tv and run that to your sound bar.

I use this splitter on my Actiontec Wireless HDMI transmitter for my Yamaha RX-V377 AV receiver and my DirecTV HD receiver and I have not experienced any lag or latency. The HD picture and sound quality have been perfect using this splitter.

It will not add latency. The splitter passes the signal through, it doesn't change it, so there will be no added latency.

Have no idea, but the splitter does not really know what the source is. It just takes one IN ands pushes TWO out.

I'm not sure exactly what you mean. An antenna typically uses a coaxial cable and the ROKU uses HDMI. There would be no need to split the signal unless you have an HDMI antenna. This splitter should work with ROKU.

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.

No, this device is designed to send a signal from one device to two tvs. What you need is the rf-g1185. This product will allow you to connect multiple hdmi devices to a single hdmi port on the tv.

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.

I dont see why that wouldnt work, Other than the HDCP compliant device, If amazon firestick tv requires the HDCP than I doubt the monitor will be able to read the input.

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.

This will split a single signal to 2 different devices. You want to connect the Genie to the input and have the TV and sound strip being the outputs.

This device is not intended for wireless transmission. Something of that magnitude would not be an easy feat. Even wireless hdmi transmitters tend to be iffy, and they cost around 100 dollars
