My setup: Xbox One, Wii U, PS4, TV Display and Projector Display. I recently added a projector to my setup where I like to watch. My kids sometimes like to play their systems on the TV or projector. As anyone who reads above can appreciate, I'd get calls from home while at work asking what cable goes here, what cable goes there? I'd come home to a mess of cables to fix every time. I found these splitters, 3 to 1 HDMI port expanders, and manual switch, and started thinking of that I could piece all of these together to make it a seemless, easy, and headache free experience for anyone to use. Techole had 3 products that I used. I ended up using 2, 3 to 1 port expanders, 3 signal splitters, and 1 manual switch. See my drawing for the detailed cable mapping. It worked perfectly to my plan. No more cables have to be moved at all. The splitters allowed me to send the gaming systems signal to both the TV and the projector simultaneously. Now the kids can just turn on the TV, projector, or both! Very happy with these splitters. One final comment. These are sold with 5v power cables, but I did not need them.
This product worked very well. I have my ps4 and xbox connected to it and it works fine. I have not had issues. I stream and been using the switch and still no issues. Image looks great on my benq and it was super easy to set up. Remote works as well and makes it easier to switch between my ps4 and xbox. For me it is important to have quality and the switch delivered. Image quality wasn't ruined at all.
No need to plug it into the wall socket like many others I viewed before buying this one. It is small. I actually almost missed the non-descript box it came in, which is a plus because it is discreet enough to be ignored when not needed.
Had To Have so I could split off the HDMI output from my cable TV box in the living room as well as the one in my bed room. That way I don't need to pay for a second cable box in the bed room as I put the one in the living room on a small lazy Susan and just give it a quarter turn towards a mirror I placed on my wall to bounce my remote off of to the box.... PERFECT Use of it in my thoughts, although I am sure my cable company wouldn't agree...lol
With limited digital outputs on sending device, this unit makes it possible to duplicate the digital optical signal and send it to more than one receiving device without any loss of quality.
Easy to install, rather small, appears to be a quality build.
