Will not work with 2 items plugged in at one time – HDMI to 2*HDMI Split Y-Cable (30.5cm) Reviews

Pros:
Used for Playstation 3. I have a 60" Sony LED tv we use to watch blueray movies delivered by ps3, and for watching HDTV. We also have a 42 inch LCD tv mounted above the 60" used for the kids to play ps3 games while we watch tv on the 60" Sony. This is the reason we bought this HDMI splitter. The problem is; this splitter will NOT work if both tv's are plugged in at the same time. Even if your only using 1 tv. I've decided to keep the splitter anyway, so we don't over use the HDMI plug port on the back of our expensive Playstation 3.
Cons:
You can only plug in ONE tv at a time.
Other:
Disappointing, but saves the HDMI PORT on our PS3 from getting damage by switching tv's a few times per day.
Bottomline:
Worth 8 bux to save an expensive repair down the road. Also took nearly 3 weeks to ship it from our owners, China.
