Hardware to split out the sound and video from the HDMI channel.

Hello all,

I am working through an issue in my environment that causes fuzzy snow on the screen and/or static crackling sound all the way upto complete loss of video and sound.

In a conversation today with a Crestron engineer, he suggested I split the HDMI channel going into the receiver into the video and the sound EDID using this Crestron product. That way I can send only the sound to the receiver and only the video to the TV. At a minimum, he thinks this should help me understand what component is causing the failure. At a maximum it might improve or outright solve the issue. It sounds promising, but of course is very expensive.

My question is are there other components from other manufacturers available to do the same? I want to compare and contrast options available to me.

Before I do this, I am replacing my HDMI cables with better redmere ones from Monoprice. If this still doesn't solve the issue, then I will need to look at other options. This option would be among the next available steps.

Thanks a lot.

Classic symptoms of a bad cable. A new cable will most likely do the trick. Splitting is only going to create more problems, not aid in troubleshooting, IMO.

Thanks.

I am trying the cable route first. Just bought a bunch of Redmere cabling from Monoprice. If that doesn't work, then my next step is to either replace the longer cables with HBaseT HDMI extenders and/or use these splitters.
