3D Splitter 1x2 with one 3D display and one 2D display

I'm looking for an HDMI splitter that will be detected as 3D compatible by my source. And be capable of delivering the signal to a 3D projector AND my 2D monitor. Both run at 1920x1080.

I got a j-tech mini 1x2 3d compatible splitter but my LG bluray player won't recognize it as a 3D compatible device.

Most splitters, even those listed as "3D compatible", report the EDID of the least-capable display attached to them to all connected sources. This is to prevent the least-capable display from receiving a signal that might damage it. There are some splitters that will capture and report the EDID from the 3D display, but they are usually $$$.

Yep. I found that out a couple of years ago trying to use a splitter to send 3D to my 3D projector with another pj connected that was 2D only. No workee...Ended up running making 2 different HDMI runs because of this "least capable" b.s.
