Will this splitter work correctly when display 1 or display 2 is switched off?

Yes it should. I returned mine due to projector having hand shake issues. Not the fault of the device. It worked fine when my projector was off and played fine to TV on a 50 ft hdmi fiber cable.
[ Johnny  Feb 25, 2019 ]
I have no issues using just one tv. Works great with 2 or 1.
[ William  Feb 25, 2019 ]
Yes absolutely
