Q & A

Customer Q&A

Crutchfield asked  
Why did you buy this?

To output cable to 2 receivers. One driving a 5.1 setup for main TV and the second to drive 2 channel setup at 4 other locations on property via a Niles 6 way. Splitter cables for subwoofer out to each pair (each controlled by a half hot). I can drive both systems at same time or independently. [ LEE  Jul 29, 2018 ]
My daughters have 2 TVs in their bedroom. With a cable box I can use both TVs but with Chromecast I couldn't. So Dee hooked me up with this splitter to make it work! Thanks again Dee and thanks again Crutchfield!! [ MATTHEW  Jun 05, 2018 ]
the need to conect two item to tv [ WILLIAM  Apr 06, 2018 ]
I was looking for a device to solve a specific AV problem. With the help of my adviser "Buddy" it looks like Crutchfield had exactly what I needed. The Crutchfield wesite had all the detailed specs I needed to try to ensure it would work to solve my problem. We'll see when it arrives! [ R  Apr 04, 2018 ]
Needed to split my output from Dish receiver to separate TV's. [ Rickey  Nov 28, 2017 ]
so I can run two consecutive sources through my Sony receiver to have both a TV and projector display images. [ RAYMOND C  Aug 27, 2017 ]

Wat you want to do should work fine. I split with one of these between two TV's and another one the opposet way. I couldn't detect any degrading of the signal. [ PHIL  Aug 20, 2018 ]
Mine is split between my tv and my projector, but I think it should work for your application. [ Leonard  Aug 18, 2018 ]
This splitter works great when connected to two TVs with the same resolution, but not when one is 1080p and the other is 4K. So this will probably work if your receiver tells the splitter that it is the same resolution as your TV. [ David  Aug 18, 2018 ]
So Sorry....this is a signal SPLITTER that sends the SAME ORIGINAL SIGNAL to 2 different inputs. [ DOUGLAS  Aug 17, 2018 ]
So sorry this is a SIGNAL SPLITTER that can send the SAME signal to 2 different inputs. [ DOUGLAS  Aug 17, 2018 ]
Yes, you can do that. However, before you buy this check to see if your receivers have a "Stand By Pass Through" setting which sends the HDMI to the monitor even when the receiver is Off. The only problem I see is that using the splitter with the receiver on their may be a slight audio mismatch with picture. [ Peter  Aug 17, 2018 ]
You should be able to watch TV without reciver on as I use the tv volume that is of your talking about audio reciver , I use mine to hook to a projector where I can have two sources going while watching games , so basically I have regulat tv on with 7.1 sound and project same picture to 100 inch projector [ RAYMOND C  Aug 17, 2018 ]
