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.
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.
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.
