I am having trouble splitting and HDMI Output from a desktop computer to and LCd Monitor and an LCD projector in order to display them at the same time.

This covers a short distance onjly but can only get one or the other to display but not both simutaneously.

You might want to try an active splitter to see if that solves the problem.


Try and get one from a place that allows you to return it if it doesn't suit your needs.

Thanks. I'll try that. I will also try going into the control panel on the computer and seeing if anything can be done there.

If you have a dvi and hdmi connection on your video card, you could connect the dvi to your monitor and hdmi to your projector and use Win 7 to clone the desktop onto each display.

Since HDMI is a handshaking protocol a passive splitter can only be used to enable you to not disconnect an HDMI display when it is not in use. Both connections on a passive HDMI splitter can not be used at the same time. You need a powered active HDMI splitter.

I got very strange problem using splitter.

I have projector and LCD TV connected via passive HDMI splitter to HDMI output of Sony laptop with Radeon 5650. They both worked well at the same time on 1920*1080 until last Win7 updates.

Now I can't use them on 1920*1080 - TV works fine, but projector has horrible distorted colors to green side even if I turn off TV. Once I switch resolution to 1680*1050 everything work(separately or together).

This situation appears on Win8 as well. Using fresh installed Win7 with driver ver 12.10 I have them work properly. But after Win7 makes updates I have a pain switching down resolution if I want to see something on projector.

I can't determine exactly which update makes this.

Does somebody have same problem?
