Thanks to all - based on the info on this thread, I went with the Monoprice Splitter:
(Even though I do not need to output to two displays at one time - per another forum member - - this solution still works fine.)
This splitter features an internal amplifier, which boosts the HDMI signal and allows the transmission of High Speed HDMI signals (1080p) up to 49 feet (15 meters) using ordinary High Speed HDMI cables. The one HDMI input and two HDMI output ports are gold-plated to ensure smooth, corrosion-free connections. The splitter is powered by an included 5 VDC, 2A AC adapter.
The splitter supports High Speed HDMI signals, which means that it supports the following HDMI features:
1080p Resolution - It supports the full 1080p@60Hz HDMI resolution.
3D Video - It supports all standard HDMI 3D modes.
Deep Color - It supports deep color up to 12-bits per channel, 36-bits total.
High Definition Audio - It supports high-definition multi-channel audio signals, including Dolby TrueHD™ and DTS-HD Master Audio™.
Hope it works with no HDMI handshake issues! Works fine now with HDMI Out All - - but no Darblet on Sammy set.
Pioneer SC65 (OPPO 103, Directv, Media Player) - via HDMI1 "Out," "In" to Darblet, "Out" to Samsung LCD/LED 65" TV & BenQ W1080ST projector.
