An hdmi splitter can be used to connect high definition devices to multiple HDTVs. This is useful for home entertainment systems when multiple devices are involved. Wireless splitters can be used to connect one device to multiple televisions in different rooms. They are not difficult to configure, but sometimes you need to adjust the connection. If you’re not getting a good signal, or the splitter isn’t working, here are some things to check.
1. Image fading
If the image on your TV is fading, there could be a number of reasons behind it. First check that the cables are configured correctly. If they are set in the wrong position, the image may appear, but it will be blurry and fade. You will need to check the cables on both the splitter and all the devices it is connected to.
2. Insufficient signal
A common problem with splitters is not having a strong enough signal to power every device. This can happen if cheap cables are used or if a cheap splitter is used. A divider will always reduce the signal strength, but a high-quality divider will reduce the loss. Cables that are too long can also cause a weak signal. In these cases, the signal is necessary to travel a long distance, and it may lose strength as it travels. Try rearranging the entertainment area to be able to use shorter cables.
3. There is no sound
If you have a clear picture but no sound, it could be the cable itself. Remove the cable from the non-working device. Verify that all components are intact. Replace the cable and try again. If there is still no sound, you may need a new cable. The cable you are using is most likely faulty.
If you have multiple electronic devices connected to a splitter, an amplifier may be necessary. This is useful when you are dividing a signal between multiple rooms, or if you have a complete entertainment system in one room. The amplifier is connected to the splitter and amplifies the signal. The boosted signal will allow a clear image on all your devices. The amplifier can also be used if you are splitting a signal wirelessly.
5. Too many divisions
If you’ve tried all of the above and are still experiencing signal issues, it could be that you have too many devices on one splitter. You may need to rearrange your settings to allow fewer items to be split. If this is not possible, consider upgrading the splitter to one that allows a strong signal based on the number of devices you are splitting.
When all else fails, check with the device owner’s manual. Not all electronic devices can be divided, although most newer ones can.
