Question

Confused

I have 1 HDMI hook up left on my TV. I would like to be able to hook up both a PS4 and a Blue Ray player. Is this used for that or do I need something else? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

How many HDMI inputs does it have? Do you own an AVR? It could be used to plug all of your HDMI inputs into.

Yes this should work.

1. Connect one end of a high-speed HDMI cable (not included) to your video source (such as a gaming console, DVD or Blu-ray player, or cable box) and the other end of the cable to the IN port on the splitter.

2. Connect one end of another high-speed HDMI cable to an A/V receiver, projector, or TV then, connect the other end of the cable to your HDMI splitter’s OUT1 port. Note: The destination device with the lowest resolution must be connected to the OUT1 port.

3. Connect one end of another high-speed HDMI cable to a second A/V receiver, projector, or TV then, connect the other end of the cable to your HDMI splitter’s OUT2 port.

4. Connect the included AC adapter to the DC jack on the HDMI splitter; plug the other end into a standard AC outlet. The LED indicator lights green.

5. Power on all connected devices and operate per the manufacturer’s instructions.

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

The PS4, like its predecessors was designed to output video in HDCP format thru HDMI. In this format, the Elgato cannot accept or record gameplay video. Your description of the problem sounds like HDCP is being output. Sony announced a patch to allow users to turn off HDCP output. Has this been downloaded yet? If so, then you need to change settings to turn off HDCP. If the patch is not available yet, you will have to wait until it is before being able to record. I would also research how to bypass HDCP.

According the El Gato website, the card is not ready for use with the PS4 yet. They are waiting for a firmware update on the PS4 before they can get it to work. To check and see if that update has gone live, you could connect it up without the splitter and see if it works directly. It shouldn't yet, but the info on their website might be out of date.

This is not a switch. It splits the signal and sends to both outputs at the same time. You don't have the ability to send only to one or the other.

Question

connecting two monitors creates a problem

HI, i have Macbook Pro with retina 13" with HDMI output. I got a Pearl HDMI cable to the box. The first monitor is LG 27" (27ea31) IPS monitor and the 2nd one is DEL 24" (U2412M). I am trying to achieve 2 separate screens (none mirrored) so i can open applications on all of them and maybe even not use the laptop at all. The problem is the the 2nd monitor has a terrible picture, its only green/red tones. If i plug the same monitor as the only one via the RF box then its working great. If i switch them then the LG can not even turn on. I don't care which one i am using as a 1st or 2nd as long as i get picture on both. I run Mavericks OS.... please help!

Your computer most likely does not have enough power to support all 3 monitors in that way. It requires a very strong graphics card to send out a separate signal to 3 monitors.

No. If you want your blu ray and sound bar to play at the same time you need to either use an optical cable from the tv to the sound bar and plug the blu ray into the tv via hdmi cord. Or if your sound bar has hdmi ports you can hook up the hdmi out to the tv, then plug your cable box and blu ray player into the sound bar and simply change the input on the sound bar as to what you want to watch cable or blu ray and the sound and video will work.

No, the Blu Ray needs to send a signal to the TV, while the TV needs to send a signal to the soundbar. This sends 1 signal to 2 separate devices. It could possibly work if you had it between the Blu Ray and the TV and soundbar. That's the only way this might work for you.

TW wants their money. They don't allow you to split their signal unless you pay, nice guys! The splitter will allow you to stream video to two TVs from a DVD or Blu Ray player but not from the cable Co.
Sorry.

The RF-G1182 uses the EDID (Extended Display Identification Data) for the display connected to Output 1. You must connect the Display with the lowest resolution capability to Output 1 to allow the device to work correctly. Make sure you unplug the TVs, splitter, and cable box when connecting the HDMI cables. Once everything is connected correctly and the devices have been without power for 30 seconds, plug the cable box in, once the box is booted up plug the splitter in, and finally plug both TVs in.

Question

Dolby Digital pass through

I am using a splitter to split signal from by fios settop box. One cable goes to my Denon 4520 AVR and the other goes directly to my LG led (42LS5700). I have a cable that goes from my AVR to the TV as well. When using the splitter I get sound but will not pass DD through to AVR. If I connect cable directly from my set top box to AVR I get DD (not using the splitter). Opinions on how to resolve?

I would run everything through the Denon only, with only one HDMI cable going to the TV. To watch TV through the cable box just select the cable input, you don't have to power the Denon on, just use it as a switch. The Denon needs to be in stand-by mode and not completely off. Look in the Denon users manual to find this. Works fine for my AVR which is a Yamaha but that fact doesn't matter.

I'm sorry for the late reply, but the engineers did confirm that the splitter will pass the Dolby Digital signal through. One thing to check is to ensure that your FiOS is sending out the DD signal. As long as it is, then the other thing to try is disconnecting everything from the power. Disconnecting the HDMI cables. Reconnect the cables and power everything else back on. If none of those work, then please call us at 1-800-620-2790 so we can provide further assistance.
