I recently purchased an HDMI splitter (this one to be exact) to mirror an HDMI input onto a TV and my monitor. The splitter works fine when plugging it into two HDMI devices, but it seems to have issues when plugging it in through a DVI adapter to my monitor. On one monitor, it just doesn't work (it attempts to show an image, but then goes back to a "no DVI connected" message). On another monitor, it flashes a scrambled image about once a second.
I can hook up my computer via HDMI through the DVI adapter and it shows up fine on my monitor, but if I add the splitter between them, it stops working.
I'm really confused why adding an adapter would cause this issue, especially since (as far as I understand) DVI is the exact same as HDMI but without audio.
Does anyone have any suggestions to make this work, or at least an explanation as to why it doesn't?
