How is the Ikan HDMI-2-HDMI Passive 1 to 2 HDMI Splitter powered? Is it for one HDMI source to go into TWO HDMI monitors?
The hdmi splitter is not powered and it is to copy a source device and put it onto two monitors. Unfortunately unless you have and very strong signal the splitter is a piece of junk. It's very grainy and cuts out every once and awhile. If I were u spend a little more and buy a powered hdmi splitter I did and it works flawlessly the one currently is not powered it is passive. Search "powered hdmi splitter" and you will be more happy
