- Does work.
- Not overly useful unless both displays are on at the same time.
It may not work at all for people with weak output source signal strength.
- This is a "Synchronized Splitter".. It's good if both display devices simultarnously on. I tried to use it to mirror my monitor's signal with my TV. It works. However, when I switch my tv to another input, it must send a disconnect signal through to my computer via this cable and the computer stops sending a signal at all. So my monitor turns off. I actually have to replug it all to get a signal again, regardless of input selections.
Apparently I actually want an independent output splitter.

- Short length
- It doesn't work
- I bought one of these to hook up my Boxee Box to my projector and my TV. Plugged everyting in, and..............nothing. It just doesn't work. Whatever wiring is going on inside, it's just not good enough.
It's in the garbage, as it's not worth the drive back to return it.
Save your money. Buy something else.
Works perfectly with Xbox 360

Compact and flexible
- Had sales associate connect this up in store to make sure it worked. Worked fine in store connected to a DVD source.
Connected at home to Xbox that has one HDMI output. Connected this splitter cable to the Xbox and split signal to two televisions. Works perfectly displaying same signal on both televisions at the same time. Other reviewers are on crack.
These don't work

- make a decent paper weight. Just cut the cord off and voila.
- I am not sure what the use of these splitters are for they just do not work. You need a powered splitter which runs about $80 and it will solve your problems. Without the powered splitter the signal is degraded and won't produce anything.....maybe the odd flash of picture but that is about it.

- Cannot connect two hdmi male connectors to get a signal on either TV!
Only one connector may be connected at a time to view one TV.
- I have a large screen HDTV and one small 22" TV that I watch at noon for new. I was hoping to connect both to a Telus Optic HDPVR which has only one HDMI out. That's why I bought the splitter-one out into two out. One for each TV. No dice, can't have a connector in each slot, no picture on any TV. Must remove one to view a picture on one TV, then remove it, connect the other to view a picture on the other TV. A nuisance, but still better than pulling out the PVR and switching cables at the back.
