I tried monoprice's 1x8 and 1x16 HDMI splitters to connect a single HDMI source to 8 LCD 1080p monitors with the intention that all monitors display the same image simultaneously.

The problem is that the monitors cannot lock onto the signal and continually cycle between inputs.

The splitters work when connected to a HDMI HDTV so it isn't a problem with the splitters.

Should I try a different brand & model of splitter until I find one that works or is there one that is recommended or is there another option altogether?

Couple brands to consider.
Atlona 1x8 HDMI Splitter
Octaca 1x8 HDMI splitter

I use only Octava for my digital need after some trial and errors with other brands.
But, note that I never use their 3x8 before.

How long are the cables from the splitter to the display(s)? You may need extenders after the splitter for longer runs...
