Another HDMI Splitter thread....

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Want to connect (2) monitors (HDMI) to windows 7. My current computer has one (1) HDMI output (desktop app) but I am in the proccess of connecting another monitor with a 25ft HDMI cable.

Sounds like most of the splitters are buggy and quit working after a spell?

My Monoprice splitter's been working fine so far (I've had it about a week).

I've heard of them. Is it made in China?

It is easier to keep track of what IS NOT made in China!

What usually stops working after some time is not the splitter but instead is the power pack, often the ones from China are poorly manufactured.

How about installing another HDMI computer card and running both at the same time?

do you have DVI or Display port on your computer? You should be aboe to run both at the same time as long as you do not need sound. Or if you only need sound at one use the HDMI for that display and DVI or display port for the other.

That could work, and is very common in "gaming" rigs and workstations, but you would have to be specific with your selection of a secondary video card. I'd suggest posing the question over in the HTPC section with your detailed system specs including your current card.

IMHO, a passive monoprice splitter sounds much easier to install, configure, and maintain. And it would be less expensive as a bonus. At less than $25 it borders on disposable if you have to replace it occasionally.

Just wondering what experience others have had with these splitters?

I've thought of that one, may have to try it?
