    Hi everybody,

    If I want to connect 2 devices as an external source for ambilight, do I need an hdmi splitter with 2 in 2 out or 2 in 1 out?

    I hope someone could help me with this.

    Thnx

    But 1 in is just for 1 console right?

    But this is an 1x2 splitter. It is not 2 in splitter.

    a 2 to 1 plugged into a 1to2... not at all advised, even less for gaming

    Do you have issues with 4k HDR? Seems like your splitter can only split 4k hdr if the two outputs are also 4k hdr b,ut if you need to mix so the TV gets 4k hdr and the second output gets 1080p, it does not work, you'd have to play 4k non hdr media for it to mix properly to 1080p...

    Anyone know if there are any cheap splitters that can mix outputs with HDR properly? Ie 4k hdr in one and 1080p non-HDR in the other to feed the ambilight?

    Not cheap to fix this scenario. I use a Vertex Fury. Input 4K60 > Output 1 = 4k60, Output 2 1080/60. My capture is an ezcap 269. This device will not affect EDID so you can capture in 800x600 for super fast video capture.

    Easycap 269 seems a bit overkill just to capture no? I'm assuming it wasn't good enough for the hdr bypass and capture so you had to get the vertex fury to strip out the hdr on the 1080p output and just use the Easycap for capture on that?

    1080p will likely work (ezcap301). I liked the idea of having 4k60 passthrough. Bear in mind that EDID plays funny games during USB capture. For example using UTV007 pulls my system down to 720p. There's also a stupidly hot running HDMI "all in one" for $20 but it does the same. I'm riding on the testimonies of others - and in the absence of being able to return something that didn't work, it was worth the extra.
