Can you split HDMI to audio and video?
The audio and video are split into two separate streams, which are fed to separate monitors or TVs at the same time. If you don't have enough inputs on your AV or TV receiver, and want to connect multiple TVs to a single source, you can use an HDMI splitter to split the HDMI signal for this purpose.
Do HDMI splitters work both ways?
Conclusion. HDMI splitters and HDMI switches both have a designated purpose, and one cannot work like the other. These handy little components have different circuitry that won't allow them to be used in reverse. If you want to send the same source signal to multiple screens, go with the HDMI splitter.
How do I split audio between HDMI and speakers?
Can I play sound from my speakers and the HDMI at the same time on Win 10?
- Open Sound panel.
- Select Speakers as the default playback device.
- Go to the "Recording" tab.
- Right click and enable "Show Disabled Devices"
- A recording device called "Wave Out Mix", "Mono Mix" or "Stereo Mix" (this was my case) should appear.
Does using an HDMI splitter reduce quality?
HDMI Splitters do not automatically reduce quality because they are copying a digital signal. But using lower quality hardware or a non-powered HDMI Splitter is less of a guarantee. Splitters used with very long HDMI cables may have signal quality issues due to the cable length.
Can HDMI be used for audio only?
There is no way to transmit only audio data via HDMI. The HDMI white paper (page 10) notes that the signal is sent in HDMI packets consisting of both audio and video. Despite all the pins, there are no separate audio and video signals, so there are also no HDMI A/V splitter cables.

When would you use a HDMI splitter?
If you only want to connect a couple of devices or need to use longer cables, an HDMI splitter is often your best option. Once everything is connected, you can easily switch the HDMI source that matches the device. An HDMI splitter is also recommended when you want to send a signal to multiple TVs.
What is the difference between HDMI Switch and HDMI Splitter?
We'll get into more detail, but the short version is that an HDMI switch takes multiple sources and lets you choose (switch) between them, sending one cable to your TV. As you've probably figured out already, a splitter takes one signal and splits it across multiple HDMI cables.
