Cannot View Simultaneously
Posted by: AVsnob from: Rancho Cucamonga, Ca on
I hooked this up going from a cable box to a 32" LCD and a 58" plasma. The build quality is good and it works splitting the signal to both televisions without pixelation or video noise. However, it does not allow me to view both TVs at the same time. I used Rocketfish HDMI cables (it doesn't make a difference if you use Monster). For my purposes this is okay because I won't be watching both TVs simultaneously. I gave it 4 stars for price because a similar unit on a popular online retailer was almost twice as much. I originally tried a non-powered unit from another company which was only $15, but it didn't even work at all... so it was $15 wasted. I've read elsewhere that the performance may also depend on the size of TVs you are sending the signal to. If you consider $99 too expensive, shop around and you will see that for a "POWERED" HDMI splitter it's actually inexpensive. (Note: There is a blue LED light on the front of the splitter that cannot be turned off).

Great product, easy to install
Posted by: PJF725 from: Phoenix, AZ on
We recently set up our bedroom with two HDTVs, one mounted on each side of an island in the middle of the room. (There's an exercise area on one side, sleeping quarters on the other.) We wanted to be able to run both TVs off one cable box. The cable company couldn't provide a splitter but directed us to "Best Buy or another retailer." We went to Best Buy.
I wasn't sure what I was getting into, but the Rocketfish splitter did the trick. It was easy to install and came with all the cabling needed to get the job done. It takes three HDMI cables - one from the box to the splitter, and one for each TV.
At $150, it seems a little pricey to me, but what isn't these days? I've had it for more than a month, and I take it for granted now. All in all, it works well, and I recommend it.

DOES THE JOB BUT HAS ITS DOWN SIDES
Posted by: SJSTYLES from: CCpertino, CA on
I installed this devise so that I could add a TV to the back yard without paying for an additional receiver. The product works but some times the sound cuts off on one of the TV's. I have to turn off both units then turn TV #2 back on 1st. A bit annoying but at least there is a solution.

Really great product
Posted by: dmmalpert from: on
This unit does exactly what it advertises. Rocketfish products do what they are supposed to and hold up well over time.

Will not work with Comcast Cable.
Posted by: Timsdown from: Valparaiso on
I purchased this splitter and hooked it up to my entertainment system. it works well with Apple TV, Xbox and our Blueray. It does not work with Comcast cable. it is not a Rocketfish issue as Comcast is blocking any splitter from working. One of the reasons I rate Rocketfish and Best buy low is they should know this. I asked Best Buy if it would work and he said they never had any issues. Comcast is the main provider in this area and Best Buy should have warned me. Second reason is there is no trouble shooting with the product. I had to do a lot to find out it was Comcast that was the issue. Rocketfish support actually told me the box was bad and i has to returen it. I did and it still did not work with Comcast.

Works exactly as I expected
Posted by: Tampa8 from: Ct/Fl on
My satellite receiver only has one HDMI output. If I go through my audo receiver, then the audio receiver has to be on all the time and it's one more thing for my wife to have to fiddle with. So I got this splitter and go directly to the TV, and to the receiver for sound. Now my wife can watch the TV as usual, or I can add the Receiver sound for full 5.1 or TRUE HD audio.
The splitter does send all audio formats to my receiver with no problem, I am using generic HDMI cables, not any of the expensive brand name ones.

Boy was this a waste on money
Posted by: Effie2118 from: El Cajon, CA on
I read the reviews and thought what the hell. I added a Coby 32" LCD and 100' of HDMI cable to my patio so I could connect to an existing COX DVDR box without paying them any more money. Splitter fit the bill. The box fed a Proview 32" on a 6' HDMI cable with no problems. So I buy the Rocketfish after getting the same price as Amazon, and buy a new $30 3' input HDMI cable (ouch) for the Rocketfish. It takes about 10 minutes to hookup and guess what, it doesn't work. The only way to get pictures is to have both TV's on at the same time and the Coby has a constent video flick. Their Tech support says the 100' cable is bad, of course. I run the Coby directly to the DVDR and it's clear as a bell. Blows that theory. I end up buying a different splitter from a online competitor for half the price and $2.00 1.5' HDMI cable. Works right out of the box. Best Buy is a great place to shop and I will continue to buy from them, but do your homework before purchasing.

Gets the job done
Posted by: lickwidsnake from: on
Had to buy this for work and Best Buy was the only place that a HDMI splitter in stock. Had I the luxury of more that a few hours of time, I would have ordered online.
Pros: Simple to use and setup, does what it is supposed to do.
Cons: $100 is excessive something that looks and feels so unimpressive. You can find much better alternatives for better prices.. The plug for the AC adapter that goes into the box itself is very thin and the hole is very small. One knock would probably bend it or too many unplugging/repluggings would probably make it loose and you'd have to tape it or glue it in place.
Other: Does not come with HDMI cables.Only thing that I can say about that is to shop around.

Product meets my needs
Posted by: FranklySpeaking from: on
The product splits the single HDMI output from the Directv receiver so that I can send it to two different tv's . Of course, both tv's have to receive the same channel at the same time, but I am sending one to a tv on the outside patio and eliminating the need for an additional receiver.

Didn't work with my setup
Posted by: nOrbX187 from: Sunnyvale, CA on
Used this to split my PS3 HDMI signal, one HDMI connection to my Sony XBR-60LX900 and the other HDMI connection to my Onkyo TX-SR875.
Not sure if there is a compatibility issue with the TV or any of the other products. Upon initial use, I could see "snow" (small white dots appearing randomly) across the screen (much more noticeable on a dark image). The intensity of the "snow" increased after a few minutes. Then the picture would cut in and out every 10-15 seconds.
When it was working and minus the "snow," it was working great. Plus, this is the only splitter which supported HDMI 1.4 that I could buy locally at a store. As mentioned, it is a little on the expensive side. I would still recommend trying the product out because the issues I have may be due to compatibility with my components.
