I wonder if there could be a good market for a certain type of HDMI splitter.
The scenario I have in mind is this: you have a high end home theatre receiver from a couple of years ago, but it doesn’t support 3D video passthrough (ie. 1080p24 frame packed). What you would like is to have a splitter that you use with your 3D Blu-ray player. You plug the player into the splitter’s input. You plug one of the splitter’s outputs into a 3D TV or projector, and the other into a non-3D home theatre receiver. That way you can get both 3D and the highest quality audio available on a Blu-ray disc.
But this depends on what information the splitter conveys from the display/s back to the source. If it passes back to the source the fact that one of the devices (the A/V receiver) does not support 24(FP) video, then the player will not output that.
I’ll start asking around
