Hey guys. I have a bit of a situation I'm trying to resolve, and even after doing my research I'm still kind of baffled at how this stuff isn't working.
I made a diagram of my setup to help explain things:
The Auto HDMI switch problem I have... I can understand why it's happening. It would just be nice if there were a way to fix it. Basically I have the switch connected to my TV, but both the inputs coming into the device are from the HDMI splitters - and since they're always on, I'm guessing the switch see's two signals at once which is why it's not switching them. I don't know of a way around this, but it sucks and I'd really like to fix it.
The second problem is a bit more confusing. Say I want to play the PS3. I have it connected via the splitter to both my HTS and my LCD. In this case, I can understand the PS3 only detecting a 2.1 audio source because it has to use the least features in order to be compatible with both TV's - that's totally fine. Here's the problem: When I turn off the PS3, and the LCD, leaving only the HTS on and even having the splitter itself showing only input 1 (the HTS) connected, when I turn the PS3 back on it STILL only detects a 2.1 audio signal as if the LCD were still connected. This is a HUGE problem and I don't understand why or how it's happening. The splitter itself is reporting only one output being connected, yet it remembers the settings of the LCD that's no longer connected and forces them on the HTS. I just don't get that.
Has anyone else had a problem with the ViewHD splitters like this? They're brand new, 1.3b certified, 10Gbps, the works, but this problem is something I just can't wrap my head around.
