HDMI Splitter Issues


Recommended Posts

Hey guys I was looking for a FFM splitter to connect my PC to my Desktop Monitor and my TV (to use as a second monitor.) When the PC is booting up both displays show fine, but the moment it switches to user login they both go black. Anyone else have issues with this?

sorry a splitter will only allow you to duplicate the displays, to extend your desktop across two displays you need to connect each to a different output on your pc/graphics card and not split one output to two displays using a splitter.


on my system i have my monitor connected to a dvi output and my tv connected to another separate dvi output using a dvi to hdmi adaptor.


what you use will depend on what connection outputs are available on your pc.


see if this better explains things for you. :- http://www.online-tech-tips.com/computer-tips/how-to-setup-dual-monitors-in-windows/

I had a similar problems but with by security DVR.My wife wanted a monitor in hall way(to view,could not get to TV) and I wanted to view on my computer. I was able to split the HDMI out put from DVR and see what the camera were viewing on both screens. This splinter has its own power supply.Take a look and see if it would help. Also depending on how far you want to push the signal you would need special HDMI cord. I had to use a special 50 ft HDMI cord (reduce signal loss). Got it from monoprice.com.
