    Default appleTV and 2 tv's

    Hi folks,
    I apologize in advance if this has been brought up before, I've done some searching but have not managed to get an answer as of yet.

    I have an appleTV hooked to an HDMI splitter (on of those 15 buck ones on ebay)
    some times both tvs will show the appleTV.
    some times i get "out of range" on the tv that's next to the appleTv and I get invalid signal on the upstairs TV (15m cable)

    can anyone enlighten me on this situation? what can I do to get this sorted?
    also is there any way to "mod" the component and hdmi output to work simultaneously? that would be the other way to get it done.

    please advise

    thanks
    P

    Is it a splitter or a switch?

    HDMI Description, HDMI Pinout

    It probably has something to do with pin 19. It detects whether there's a monitor (TV) connected. With two TV's connected, there may be something funny going on. Try one at a time to rule out bad hdmi cables.

    I would think a remote switch would work.
    HDMI / DVI Switch and Converter
    That way you could disconnect the TV your not using

    Default semi solved

    so i emailed the person i bought the splitter from.
    apparently they had a bad batch and they were refunding all purchases from this batch.
    got the money back and ordered another splitter.
    this one shows on both tvs. no messages EXCEPT when i turn off one tv.
    then it says no signal.
    why would it require both Tvs to be on?
