Doesn't work on two TVs

I am having the same problem a s a previous poster. The splitter is sending signal to 2 tvs but TV2 has to be turned on for TV1 to dipsplay the picture. This does not seem to be the case vise versa. This splitter has a flaw.

I think the manual talks about turning off the CEC function on the TV's if you don't want to have them both turned on to watch TV.

This is most likely an EDID issue. When a source device (blu-ray player, cable/satellite box, etc.) is connected to a TV via HDMI cable, the TV 'tells' the source device what the best possible video resolution (among other things) that it is capable of displaying. If the 2 TVs you are connecting to the splitter do not have the same display capabilities, you will need to use the lowest common denominator (for example, if one is a 720p panel and the other is a 1080p panel, you will need to set the 1080p panel to 720p in order to display the video on both TVs at the same time).

Question

Can I use the Rocketfish splitter to connect two monitors to my computer?

I just purchased a Gateway PC and was told that it supports 2 monitors ... however, there is only one port to plug in a monitor. I have one HDMI monitor and one that is LED ... can I use the splitter to be able to use both monitors ... as if it were one large screen. I want to run two separate programs at the same time.

This will not do what you're asking. If your PC has HDMI and VGA ports each can be used to drive a separate monitor without any other hardware.

This device is not like old analog splitters that could be used bidirectionally. This is a one way SPLITTER. What you are needing is a SWITCH.

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.

I have seen 4 and 8 way HDMI splitters. Rocketfish may not make them but Best Buy should have larger splitters from other brands.

What you probably need is a splitter with a switch so that you can switch from Cable to Xbox. I believe it is called an HDMI Bi-directional switch.

This will not work for what you are trying to do. This a 1-input/2-output splitter. You need an HDMI switch, not a splitter.

Don't know why no one is trying to answer these questions. I tried to do this with my Splitter and my computers and it didn't work. But I also purchased a 4-Port HDMI Selector mistakenly, which is probably what you need, as this is designed for 4 inputs (3 Inputs in back and one in front) plus one output. Plus it has a nifty remote control. Hope that helps.

Yes. Shouldn't have any issues. I use one of these at home to split the signal from my DVR. One goes to the AV receiver for surround sound and one goes directly to the tv. This way we can watch tv without the surround sound always on.

Question

How can I get my Rocketfish Splitter tested to see if it is defective?

I lost my DirectTV receiver in a recent lightning storm. Prior to replacing the receiver with a new DirectTV receiver, the splitter was still working. When I hooked up the new receiver, all I get on both TV's is "no signal". I hooked up the system exactly like before, plugged and unplugged, turned the system off to reboot, nothing seems to work. Help???

I submitted this suggestion, not realizing that the question was almost two years old. I'll submit it anyway, just in case there's another old person like me out there who has the same problem...

Perhaps you have tried this already, but if I had this problem, I would find two items that work properly together with a single HDMI cable between them, such as Mac to monitor, so that you know that there's nothing wrong with the HDMI, nor the connectors on either destinations. Then I would take a second HDMI and do the same. Once you have that much working and verified, why not just try to go from point A (say a Mac) to the box (Rocketfish Splitter) with the one HDMI, and from the box to point B (say the monitor), with the other HDMI, and if this works, great. Then try the same arrangement, but with the other slot on the box. If both work, then you know that much. Next try it with a third previously tested and verified destination. If nothing else, you may be able to narrow down, and therefore verify, a problem, or discover that the problem isn't the box. Make sense?

You can take the splitter into your local Best Buy's Geek Squad counter for testing. If the unit was taken out by the lighting strike it would not be covered under warranty as acts of God are not covered.
