So I've read through most of this thread and tried some things...but I can't get 3D to pass through my 4 x 2 Monoprice matrix. Model number is HDX-420X.
I'm using this cable (26 AWG, Blue Rigger, 50 feet, "latest HDMI technology")
My setup is:
Phillips 3D Blu Ray player (a few years old) -> older, somewhat expensive, 8 foot HDMI cable (can look up specs if needed) -> Monoprice 4x2 matrix -> Blue Rigger, 50 foot, new cable -> Epson 3D projector.
I talked with Monoprice tech support tonight. They had me "reboot" the switch, projector, Blu Ray...start up the projector first, then plug in the matrix...wait a bit...then turn on the Blu-Ray player. It didn't help.
Their only other suggestion was to try their Redmere cables. I'm not dismissing that entirely, but I will say that my setup works if you take the Monoprice switch out of the chain. So, if I plug the Blu-Ray directly into the projector, it works fine, using the same cables...so unless the Monoprice doesn't play nice with my cables, I don't think they are the issue. The cables work fine with the Monoprice in 2D.
I've tried changing some other settings...changing 3D formats, disabling CEC and "HDMI link" (trying to get them not to talk at all)...
I am willing to return this switch and get something better, but it absolutely has to have:
at least 4 inputs and at least 2 outputs
coaxial or toslink output (to my stereo receiver)
Any suggestions? I've hard the Kinivo mentioned, and a few others, but the Kinivo was only 4 x 1. I found a Kinivo 4 x 2 but it didn't have any toslink or coaxial outputs, just HDMI.
Any help on how to fix my set-up or a 4x2 switch with audio out that is KNOWN to work would be appreciated. I can still use my set up for all but 3D. I can get 3D to work, I just have to move a cable...but that kind of defeats the point of the HDMI switch, doesn't it!
