    Hey there,

    I recently built myself an ambilight-setup.
    Everything is working absolutely perfectly.
    But i got some problems when using an HDMI switch.
    When watching TV or playing games the signal gets lost from time to time for a second or two, which is quite annoying.
    Just to be clear... i'm talking about the Signal, which goes to the TV, the ambilight is constantly on.

    I've tried two different switches so far.

    Is this a known problem when using this kind of setup? Or should i just try some more Switches?


    My setup looks like this:

    FireTV/Nintendo Switch/PC -> HDMI Switch -> HDMI Splitter -> Grabber & TV
