HDMI Male to 2x HDMI Female splitter Y cable is for splitting HDMI high quality digital video signal to 2xHDMI Female output. This is splitter cable. You can only connect one input device (i.e. DVD player,cable box or satellite receiver) to two output device(i.e. TV or projector).You can’t connect two input device (i.e. PC,DVD player,cable box or satellite receiver) to one output device(i.e. Monitor, TV or projector) Important: Due to the current state of the technology, results using HDMI and DVI splitters can be mixed. Especially passive splitters which rely on the individual devices ability to negotiate a 3 way handshake. The problem is not all devices are programmed to deal with this properly and will sometimes default to a HDCP error state. To put it simply, some devices will consider the splitting of a signal to be a copyright violation, which could result in only one display being shown at a time or the blocking of content altogether. This type of situation is considered to be a device compatibility issue and can not be fixed short of a firmware update by the individual device manufacturers. Before purchasing this splitter, please be advised that we have no control over nor are we responsible for compatibility issues (including HDCP issues).
