How to Choose an Best and Right HDMI Splitter for Your Home Theater

There may 2 or more displays in your home entertainment system, with a cluster of cables winding around the rooms. Have you been told that you need an HDMI splitter to resolve this kind of issue with your home theater? If you are less than techno-savvy then you may find yourself somewhat baffled as to what exactly HMDI splitter is, what it means when it splits, and how to select the best and the right one for your needs. Read on to find out everything that you need to know to help you to be in the future.

Learn What a Splitter Is and Does

Fairly inexpensive, an HDMI splitter is an item that will allow for the splitting of an HDMI source input (a single source) into multiple HDMI signal outputs – the outputs can be anywhere from two, to three, four or even more.

The most frequently seen splitter is 1×2 HDMI splitter that can split one source into two displays, while 1×4 HDMI splitter can distribute high definition signals to up to 4 displays. For example, you might wish to split the signal received on your satellite set-up box so that it can be watched on more than one television. For this to be effective, all devices need to be HDMI capable.

Degradation in the signal quality is a complaint seen by many who use HDMI splitters but the truth is that it depends entirely on the devices and incoming signal. For example, if you are using a quality device to split the feed from your cable box you may not notice any difference at all. However, if you are using a lower-end splitter and trying to split the feed from one of your devices, your Blu-ray player for example, it is very possible that you will see a very big difference in the quality of the output.

Understand What You Really Want

With what we talk about above and what you need in mind, you should try to select the right HDMI splitter that will allow you to receive the highest possible quality output, while still staying within your budget of course. Keep in mind that even some of the high-end splitters will not work well with your existing equipment so you may want to do a bit of research before you head out to buy the highest rated splitter that you can find. Keep in mind that the output performance is highly unique one that will depend entirely on the equipment that you already have, so to know what you really need is the most important.

As a general rule of thumb, lower-end splitter cables won’t provide you with the output performance that you are seeking. If you plan on extending your HDMI signal beyond eight feet, you should keep in mind that a powered HDMI splitter could provide you with a high signal quality versus using a simple HDMI splitter cable. Many users who have the experience of using splitter cables complain that there is a marked decrease in the quality of the signal that they receive if they are running cables over an eight foot distance. However, by incorporating a powered splitter, the HDMI signal will be amplified and therefore the signal quality can be preserved over a greater distance. As a general rule of thumb, HDMI splitters that are powered tend to be better overall performers because they are simply designed and built better than their low-quality counterparts like HDMI splitter cable. So if you want to get better experience on your home entertainment, do buy powered HDMI splitters rather than HDMI splitter cables.

It could prove to be incredibly frustrating to get your splitter home and set up, only to find that the signal output quality is leagues below what you were hoping for.

There are many online communities that can not only help to answer all of your questions but they can also help to point you in the right direction of a splitter that will work for your needs. You may be able to find someone with a set up that is similar to your own, which can make it a lot easier to select an HDMI splitter – simply select the one that works for the person you are getting advice from. A reputable electronics store service representative will also be able to help to point you in the right direction towards the type of splitter that will work with your current set up. Just be certain to purchase your new gadgets from a store that has a good return policy – in the event that something does crop up with the signal quality you will want the option to return it or switch it out for something that will better fit your needs. Just bear in mind that to ask for more advice, either from communities or from the customer service of online store, it’s better to get advices and then give a comparison and reevaluation of them, then no doubt you will get your right and the best HDMI splitter.
