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?

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 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.

Question

2way splitter not consistently passing audio to both TVs

I recently purchased the Rocketfish 2way HDMI splitter in order to send one video signal to two different TVs simultaneously. My set up (pre splitter): DirectTV HD DVR and Sony Blu Ray player both connected to Yamaha AVR via HDMI cables into assigned inputs on AVR. HDMI output to LG LED TV in Living room delivers digital video to the TV, audio routed to 5.1 speaker setup via the AVR. I purchased a Vizio LED for use on my patio, on the exterior side of the same wall on which the LG TV hangs. HDMI had already been run to that exterior location. Intent was always to watch the same thing on both TVs. Purchased the Splitter and connected as follows per the instructions: power connected to surge protector; HDMI from DirectTV box disconnected from AVR and connected to "Input" on splitter; output 1 connected to Cable TV input on AVR (previously that input had received HDMI from DVR); output 2 was connected to patio TV's HDMI. Everything worked great! Got audio and video to the new TV outside as well as the one inside, even got the same audio to separate outdoor speakers using Zone 2 feature on AVR. Then, someone wanted to watch a movie on the blu ray player. I realized this connection scheme would not work with that device since it was not at all connected to the splitter; could have replicated the DVR connection setup but I wanted to re route the cables so that I wouldn't need to fuss with them any time this situation came up. My solution: route video output from AVR through splitter to both TVs leaving both source devices (DVR and BR connected directly to AVR inputs as follows: I plugged DVR HDMI back into the AVR DVR input, left BR HDMI connected to AVR, connected an HDMI from the AVR video output to the splitter input (previously connected at the other end to the LG tv), connected the LG to the splitter output 1, exterior TV to splitter output 2. Audio and video worked fine inside but I was getting video only on the patio ( and no audio on my patio Zone 2 speakers). This was true weather I used the DVR or BR player as the source. Any thoughts on why no audio outside with this setup? The Zone 2 audio prob is particularly suspicious since that setup bypasses the switch altogether. Thanks

At this point, due to the fact that the issue shows when the splitter is not part of the signal flow, it appears you are having issue with the Zone 2 configuration on your Yamaha Receiver.

Question

Why do I lose signal on TV when 1 or other is turned off?

I have a cable box and splitting the output of that to two 1080p TVs. If both are on, it works just fine, but as soon as one or the other tv is turned off, I lose signal to the tv left on. One tv is 60hz and other is 120hz. If I power all devices off and let cable box boot back up, will it resolve the issue or is this a known flaw in the this switch? I should be able to turn either tv off and not lose the signal/picture on the other.

The issue here is that the device is a "splitter," not a "switch." It has a logic circuit inside that doesn't allow only one output at a time.
In the olden days of analog A/V connections, the signal connections between devices were mono-directional, they only sent a signal one direction (from source to output device). In this new - fangled digital age of A/V connections, the source and output devices communicate with each other bi-directionally. Basically this means all devices must be powered up for operation before the splitter will function.
I hope this helps!

It is not a flaw with the switch. It's actually part of the HDMI signal that causes this. The HDCP built into the cable causes the signal to stop going to both TV's when you turn off one.
