Why did you buy this?
Replace existing box. [ Eric Steven Oct 15, 2017 ]
This 2x4 HDMI switcher/splitter worked great for my older 1080P TVs and has proven to be a solid performer. Would love to be able to get a 2x4 4K UHD to connect devices the way I had previously before just upgrading to a 4K UHD set. [ Frans Sep 18, 2017 ]
With ultra hi def tvs being more compact inputs get sacrificed therefore there are not enough inputs to accommodate all of my video components this is what can solve those issues. [ Spencer Dec 18, 2016 ]
multi source single out -- a great item [ david Nov 25, 2016 ]
Audio out ports. [ M Jun 11, 2016 ]
Plug and play for other equipment that will be used in conjunction with the Playbar system [ Patrick Dec 17, 2015 ]

Yes. You can send any one of your 4 independent HDMI inputs to 2 separate HDMI capable TVs or the same input to both TVs. Works great! The only peculiarity is if you are watching one TV and then the second TV is turned on there is a momentary stop in the signal to the first TV and then both will be on. Our norm is to push the same signal to both TVs since they are in adjacent rooms (great room and kitchen). [ Frans Mar 27, 2016 ]
Yes...example: you can watch directv on one tv while watching Apple TV on the other. Works great! [ Rick Mar 26, 2016 ]
Yes it will [ JEREMIAH Mar 26, 2016 ]
