Hey all, building a budget friendly set up after picking up a bunch of really great deals. Having some compatibility issues right now.
PS4, Nintendo Switch, Nintendo Wii U, Extra Cable for Gaming Laptop when needed are going to a splitter.
From the splitter, it goes to an LG SL9YG (with the SPK8-S rear kit), which is then plugged in to a Epson Home Cinema 2150 Projector.
If I plug right into any of the consoles, everything works perfectly and I get Atmos from the soundbar when applicable.
The first splitter I ordered and tried is this (I can't post links yet, sorry): HDMI Switch 4x2 [email protected]
, avedio links 4 in 2 Out HDMI Switcher Splitter with Optical/Coaxial/3.5mm/R/L Audio Out, 4-Port HDMI Audio Extractor Support ARC,HDMI 2.0, HDCP 1.4 (with IR Remote)
My projector says looking for signal and does not show anything when using the splitter. The splitter seems to be auto switching fine as I see the red light switch to a different input upon powering on. The soundbar seems to be receiving some
signal, because it will change from HDMI to optical randomly, which is nonsensical.
Cables I'm using: AmazonBasics High-Speed HDMI Cable, 3 Feet, 2-Pack and AmazonBasics High-Speed HDMI Cable, 25 Feet, 1-Pack
I'm going to return the splitter and try another. I'd prefer to have a splitter with 4 or more inputs, but I could work with 3 as well. I would also like to future proof with HDR/4k/arc/etc so I'm not rebuying stuff when I upgrade later.
