splits a HDMI connector into 2 HDMI female connectors...but with the caveats below. Just plug this HDMI splitter cable into the your HDMI device and attach 2 HDMI cables to it but see the below cautions. Note that this splitter does not pass the HDCP copy protection information, so it is unsuited for use in home theater systems. Please use one of our powered splitters for home theater applications.

This HDMI Splitter Cable may allow set-top boxes, DVD players, D-VHS players and other high definition devices with a HDMI output to be connected to two HDMI equipped displays or components.This unpowered HDMI splitter cable is meant to split an HDMI signal from one source to two displays and doing this can be unpredictable, depending on the equipment you have. The only guaranteed way is to use our powered HDMI splitters. There are no returns on this cable.
This un-powered HDMI splitter cable is a very simple unit and is not to be used in critical viewing applications as it is an experimental cable. The reason is the 100 ohm HDMI characteristic impedance is halved to 50 ohms making for unpredictable picture quality.
Some have said it works if either device is turned off."There are no returns on this experimental HDMI splitter cable"
NOTE 1: The HDMI splitter cable cannot be used in reverse as an HDMI switcher or damage will occur to your equipment.NOTE 2:
The HDMI splitter cable may not look like the pictures and change from time to time depending upon our sources but the specs stay the same.
Due to the current state of the technology, results using HDMI and/or DVI splitters can be mixed. Especially passive splitters which reply on the individual devices ability to negotiate a 3 way handshake. The problem is not all devices are programmed to deal with this properly and will sometimes default to an HDCP error state. To put it simply, some devices will consider a split of the signal to be a copyright violation, so it may decide that only one display should show at a time or may block the content entirely.
This type of situation is considered to be a device compatibility issue and can not be fixed short of a firmware update by the individual device manufacturers
