Forget the splitters, I need a 8x8 HDMI matrix. I will likely run analog audio separately if I need to for remote sources, but expect most of my sources to be local, so no need for digital ins/outs or cross format conversion.
My need is that it will properly handle all HDMI signals I throw at it (including 3D and HD audio) and will output across all output simultaneously without issue.
I do NOT want flicker from the displays when a TV is turned on or off, or when a new source is added within a valid resolution.
So, if my 1080i cable/fios/sat box is on, and I turn the family room on, then I turn on the basement, my family room should not 'flash' or lose image because I added a new display to the matrix.
If my 1080p 3D source is turned on in the 3D compliant family room, but then turned on in the non-3D compliant playroom, I can handle it doing a resolution shift to 2D and 1080i. No big deal.
Any input is appreciated and I'm trying to keep it under $3,000 if possible. Would like to know the experience others have had with products they may have tried.
