If complications arise and your cabling is inaccessible or entirely confounding, female to female HDMI adapters can be had for under $10, and can tie the signal male to device male. Or, if the cables reach, you could just plug your device male into the source.

Yes, having only 1 TV connected should work. It would he the same as having 2 TVs connected with 1 always powered off.

The conversion from HDMI signal takes place at the converter, there should be no "upstream" downgrade.

Question

Why do my screens flash?

I have the input coming from a Mac Mini, and the outputs are a computer monitor and 47" TV. Cables are 3' and 10' I think.

I want to have the same thing displayed on both monitors (obviously), and everything works except every 3-4 seconds both screens go black for maybe 2 seconds then come back on. And this happens repeatedly.

No, these are probably not high speed HDMI cables, they are cheapo's. Is this really that big of a deal?

bigcat,

most likely the flash is from a sync issue that is causing the flash. you may have to play around with your resolution and Htz settings to get this to all sync up. I would recommend that you use at least medium grade cables and converts. Sometimes the cheapies are....well, cheap!

Good luck!

Make sure you connect the display with the lowest resolution to the output number one. You may also need to adjust the refresh rate your computer is outputting at. Turn off all the devices and unplug the displays from power for a full 30 seconds. Plug the HDMI splitter back in, then turn on the computer, then plug in the display on output one, and finally plug in the 2nd display. That should reset the HDMI connection within the devices.

huyvn,

Not sure about the quality of the audio that is allowed to be split. The best I can tell you is to just try it....or go talk to the Geeks at the desk.

Sometimes Audio that is digitally parsed can be tricky to split.

Question

Need to hot unplug-plug back HDMI-IN to get sound (every time)

I just got your Rocketfish 2-Way HDMI Splitter (RF-G1182). I connected my cable box (Directv H25-100) to the HDMI-IN port. Then connected my HDTV (Panasonic Viera TH42PX60U) to HDMI-OUT1 port; and my A/V receiver (Pioneer VSX-1121) to HDMI-OUT2 port.
There is no problem when I play trough the A/V receiver but when I play trough the TV, I got no sound. The only way to get sound to the TV is by hot unplugging the HDMI-IN and plugging it back. Afterwards I have sound. But, as you imagine, I can not be unplugging and plugging back every time I turn-on the TV or want to change the destination equipment.
It is that a problem with this specific unit? Do you have a solution?, Or do I just have to go back to the store and return it?

YOu may want to check the settings on your TV to make sure you have it set for HDMI. Or what you may need is a directional splitter, comes with a switch where you change to TV or receiver, etc. that you will be using. Two way splitter I believe is meant to give you the same picture on TV's, monitors, etc.

It seems it is common in the RF-G1182 line. Try unplugging it from electricity source and plugging it back. If works, you can install an extension cord with a switch so it is easy to turn on/off.

Question

Hoping to use to connect tv to both Cox box and new Roku

I am using an older sony tv with only one hdmi (kdl-46s2000). I am hoping to hook up both the scientific Atlanta explorer 8240-HDC from cox cable and a new ROKU-3. I bought the Rocketfish 2-way HDMI Splitter and set it up. Right now, I have a roku-1 hooked up but for some reason it only works when it is hooked up with BOTH the hdmi and the av cables. When I remove either connection, the tv doesn't see the ROKU-1. I just received the ROKU-3 as a gift and want to use it instead (it has earbuds). I tried to connect it using only the hdmi and my tv doesn't see it. the Roku-3 doesn't have slots for the av cables.

I would think that you need a switch and not a splitter. A switch is just that, you could use one or the other so the signal would not be split or less of a full signal. I'd give that a try, if it doesn't work, just return the splitter

This is an HDMI splitter. It takes 1 input and sends the signal to 2 outputs. You want the RF-G1185. It allows multiple inputs into a signle HDMI port on your TV.

No. This has 1 input and 2 outputs, so it would not work with 2 inputs and 1 output.

If your computer has an HDMI port for connecting to a monitor and your T.V. has an open HDMI port you are good to go. You will just need to change the input on your T.V. (via the remote) to the corresponding HDMI to which you connected the computer and you're done. If your computer does not have an HDMI port, you can purchase a DVI (previous standard computer monitor connection) to HDMI adapter and follow the same instructions as above
