5 out of 5 eggsGreat for mirroring

Pros: Works great ... after I understood why my displays did behave weird and configured Xorg properly.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I'm running MythTV frontend on my desktop, on a secondary display. I purchased this splitter for mirroring this secondary display to my 47" LCD TV. The root of the problem is when Xorg starts the video driver (nVidia) reads the EDID from displays and configures it's output accordingly. Having two displays (with different parameters) on same output creates great deal of confusion. I saw my Dell monitor turning off protecting itself from incompatible modes, etc.
The solution is following:
Disconnect your TV and save EDID from your monitor into a file (e. g. 'get-edid > Dell.bin'). You may need to install read-edid package first. Put this binary into /etc/X11/, next edit your xorg.conf and add 'Option "CustomEDID" "DFP-1:/etc/X11/Dell.bin' to relevant Monitor section. Voila! Next time you start X the EDID will not be pulled from multiple displays you have connected to a single output, it will be read from the file instead.
Of course, if your splitter is not connected to DFP-1 or your monitor can do better than your TV then you have to adjust the above to suit your setup.

1 out of 5 eggsDeserves the bad press

Pros: cheap

Cons: Aint even worth the free delivery charge.

Other Thoughts: Okay, so I didn’t listen to the all the bad reviews. I got the splitter last night and guess what? It doesn’t work at all!! I plugged it in to my mac mini and tried the dvi on my monitor and the hdmi on my plasma tv; no signal at all on either. I tried one at a time; no signal out on the hdmi. I eventually I got a flashing and intermittent signal on the dvi when I had only that plugged in. RMA today to newegg. I think newegg must have a fast track RMA for this know defective product. They are a great company, but they really should leave this off the product line.

1 out of 5 eggsJUNK

Pros: Nope.

Cons: How about everything?

Other Thoughts: I read the other review for this and took a chance since this would have been perfect for mirroring my DVI monitor to my HDMI flatscreen TV.

I plugged it in and there was no signal to my monitor. I played around with the connectors a little bit and finally an image appeared on my monitor but the entire screen was covered in errant pixels in neon green and pink.

I then tried plugging an HDMI cable into it and my TV and the image on my monitor became clear and a clear image showed up on my TV. However, for some reason my graphics card was forced to switch to some weird resolution in 4:3 format so the image was stretched. If I tried changing the resolution the screen would go blank until restart.

Also, no HDCP support. Awesome.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: OK picture when using HDMI side.

Cons: DVI side of splitter does not function. Return shipping cost a third of the total price!

Other Thoughts: Bought two total. First one had weird pixel "static" (random pixels turned red or blue sporaticaly) when using DVI to DVI side. Then one day it completely stopped working. HDMI side still worked fine. The second, DVI side DOA.
