• dual hdmi converter

    From Ralph Mowery@21:1/5 to All on Thu Feb 23 12:58:50 2017
    My basement is partitioned into 2 rooms. Each room has a TV. One is
    connected to a Direct TV box. When ai want to use the other TV I have
    to remove one HDMI cable and plug in the other cable. Using the remote
    is no problem as it is RF activated.

    I see on ebay some Y cables the will send the signal to two places.
    Most of them say not for for cable TV boxes and other things like RUKO.
    I did try one that I did not see that mentioned just to see if it would
    work as it was less than $ 5 including the shipping. It did not work as
    I wanted it to, but did some strange things. I got a picture but no
    sound, then about 10 seconds later on the screen came up something like
    that station did not suppport the HDMI to use the composit input to the
    TV..

    Does anyone make a splitter that will work with a Direct TV box and send
    the HDMI signal to 2 TV sets ? I don't care if I can have only one on
    at the time as both TV sets are never on at the sametime.

    I tried three splitters before I found one that really did work, its a
    bit hit and miss. The one I baught finally is no longer on Ebay so I
    cant give you a link. Look for the following:
    Splitter and HDCP v1.4 stripper that will do 4k (for future proof) it
    will have to have outside power supply. It needs to have an amplifier
    also included otherwise they cant cope with anything longer than about 2
    Meters of cable length.. I found the really cheap ~6 ones all fell
    down on one of these criteria and didnt work reliably, they also ran
    very hot which is always a sign of bad design... I paid about 14 for
    the one that finally did the business and works a treat.. C+

    That seems to be what I want. Charlie above sent some info about
    getting one to work.

    There seem to be lots of ones like the one on ebay. Have you tried that
    one, or just going by the description on ebay ?

    I haven't bought it yet, but I need something similar to be able to
    connect my KODI box to a TV or a computer monitor in the same room. I
    can't see the monitor when I'm in bed, or the TV when I am using the
    computer.
