hdmi matrix switcher
has anyone daisey chaind a hdmi matrix switch yet? or is it possible to do?

thank you
i can't see why not.

you'd be N-2 on I/O, but it should work.

2 6x2 switchers daisy chained would end up 10x2, so make sure you do the right math for your number of inputs and outputs.
do the needful ...

FYI, and this might not be an issue, but before of the DRM chain. I have an HDMI splitter sitting after my HDMI receiver. All video goes to the receiver, which then splits into two (projector & plasma). Same signal goes to both, I only turn on the video device that I want to watch. Plasma during day and much of the evening casual viewing, PJ only for movies at night when the immersive experience is better.

Very rarely, and I mean maybe 2% of the time, I get some error code by the roku around HDCP protection. Its rare, but when I get it, its positively maddening. A simple turn off/ turn on of the HDMI chain doesn't do it, I have to unplug - replug various bits in the chain. In an unpredictable order, as no single order works 100%.

Yay DRM. Improving end users lives since, well, never.

My vlogs:
I thought HDCP required that content only goes to one display. Does anyone know how it's possible to split HDMI signals without being stopped by HDCP?
My Other web server is Dropbox.
my splitter does that fine 98% of the time. I can actually display the same signal on both my plasma & projector.

$20 off Amazon.

This is the one I am using:

I haven't had any trouble with the DRM (so far) using it. Before I got this device, the only time I ever had any trouble was while watching some purchased movies on DirecTV. I have both component and HDMI being used out of the DirecTV box, and it would squawk about having both plugged in.
