I can't speak to the Monoprice integrated unit, but I will say that I just (last Wednesday/Thursday) installed a Geffen Toolbox 4x2 HDMI matrix switch which is fed by two Monoprice HD-Base-T units from a conference room table and then hits the 4x2 matrix, and the OUTPUTS go to two 70" LCD displays which are fed by HD-Base-T (Monoprice). So, table interface, HD-Base-T, matrix switcher, HD-Base-T, television...
Oh yeah, AND I'm extracting analog audio off the HDMI cable using the Monoprice HDMI audio converter (works great!).
So, I would expect that if you change a source in the theater when the family room is on, you will have to deal with blanking issues - both TV and projector will blank while HDCP is renegotiated. Otherwise, I would expect satisfactory results. Read the reviews of their HDMI matrix switcher to see how they have done in that area so far.
