Yes, I have read the many threads about 3D splitting but most seem concerned with passing the audio to an older non-1.4 compliant AVR or quickly get hijacked into a discussion about PS3's or wii's. Most posts are outdated relative to my situation and there have been some newer splitter products released that may change the landscape.
So here's my system: I have two 3D bluray players (Sony BDP-S480 and Yamaha BD-S671) connected to a Yamaha AVR (RX-V471) which is 1.4 compliant. The AVR drives my 5.1 speaker system and its one HDMI output currently goes to a Panny 60" 3D Plasma tv (TC-P60GT30). Everything works great!
Now I want to add a Vizio 22" 1080p tv to a downstairs room. This tv is not a 3D tv and is not 1.4 compliant. Also, I will be using the tv's internal speakers.
When watching 3D, the Vizio tv will always be off. When watching 2D, either tv or both could be on.
My thought was to add a splitter to the AVR output. I believe I need a splitter that will report the capabilities of my Panny 3D tv to the HDMI so it does not downgrade to the lesser capabilities of the Vizio tv. Does anybody know of a splitter that will do this for me?
Thanx and sorry for the long post.
