When sending the signal to BOTH outputs, how does the source determine/merge the audio and video capabilities of the two outputs? My display doesn't support DD/DTS 5.1 audio, but my receiver doesn't support 3D or 4K?
"The Matrix uses EDID Minding to negotiate the lowest common compatibility between the source and connected displays. This means that trying to send 3D content to a 3D screen and a 2D screen is likely to get you 2D on both. Audio may be handled a bit differently to video, so it would depend more on the abilities of each specific make and model of device - but it could be set to a lower standard at the source if the default handling was not perfect for all devices."

Can you switch different inputs to each output simultaneously?
"Yes, any of the four inputs can be directed to the outputs simultaneously - the same image can be on both screens, or a different image on each, at the push of a button."

Will Blue Ray movies from a PS4 (with HDCP on) and from a computer Blue Ray DVD player, pass through this item or the non 4K version?
"Yes. We've never had any trouble with Blu-ray content coming from consoles or video out of computers when working with this Matrix. Most of our testing is done with Blu-ray movies on a PS3 and they always work great!"

Will I be able to switch output to a Dell Desktop Monitor 1920 x 1200 32 Bit Colour OR TO A Samsung Series 6 3D 40 inch TV with the unit detecting the change down in resolution automatically from my PC without needing to manually reset the resolution on the PC?
I found that a splitter wouldn't work and causes the TV screen image to not display correctly and flicker?
"Unfortunately in this configuration the PC is in control of the output resolution, so it will always have to make the change. A better method may be to use any secondary digital video output from your PC if you have one spare, or add one with a USB to HDMI adapter (code SW8710) which will allow you to set resolutions independently for both monitors."

Can US NetFlix be split. I currently play via a MacBook Pro to a Samsung UHD 4K TV without problems but want to play the audio out through an additional Toslink to SPDIF connection. Is this your best solution to do this or is there another, please?
"Your MacBook Pro may already offer Toslink output from its headphone jack depending on the year model. Alternatively you could use a more compact HDMI audio extractor (product code SW5191) or perhaps your Samsung TV has an SPDIF option to choose from. If you have a $8.99 or higher subscription package, you can already stream to two displays (directly to your Smart TV) and a splitter would not be necessary."

Hi will this product support all the latest audio formats including atmos?
"Yes. Dolby Atmos requires HDMI v1.4 or better hardware, plus a special Atmos-enabled AV receiver. This Ultra HD 4K splitter is HDMI v1.4a compliant, and will pass through the full audio data plus meta-data required for Atmos. However, the SPDIF outputs offered on the Matrix will not support Atmos."

I want to run a pair of projectors, with one being on the left and one on the right, and images stretching across both. I also want to be able to change between one computer and another, simultaneously. ie, running a video on one, then changing to a camera feed through the other. can this support this function? I am running two 1920x1080 displays on it. I suppose my main question is if the device can have the displays as a left and a right one, or if it can only duplicate the displays?
"This True Matrix can support up to four inputs. Which means you can use two computers, and each computer can be connected via two cables for separate video feeds (same as a multi-monitor setup from a single PC, only doubled). The Matrix than then switch and/or split these feeds, delivering any one or two signals to the projectors.
However, this Matrix cannot take a single link from one PC and give it extended desktop mode across both projectors. All video links must be on their own cable, so the PCs will need two compatible video outputs available for full flexibility."

Hi what is the digital coaxial input used for? Am i able to connect my tv coaxial cable to the box and distribute the television signal to both output tv's?
"The Digital Coaxial connection is for audio output only, so that you may connect a sound system which can receive the audio moving through the matrix without interfering with the audio embedded in the HDMI signals."

I only have a HDMI 1.3c compatible cable - it's it 30m long due to room distances - will this device work with this cable (I know I won't be able to get 4K resolution) but just want to know this cable will be compatible even though it is not $K?
"Absolutely. All newer-version HDMI hardware is able to work with v1.3 hardware, and is happy to use older cables, too. It will work as well with 1080p video as it does with 4K."

Will this work with 3 consoles (xbox one, 360, ps4, and a PC) outputting to a computer monitor and a TV? No HDCP issues with the consoles / games?
"Yes. This matrix switch won't have any issues with gaming consoles. In fact most of our testing is performed with a PC, xBox 360 and/or PS3 console playing blu-ray movies."

Does this unit successfully extract Tosling audio from a Telstra TV2?
"Although we've not been able to test this ourselves, we've not received any reports regarding incompatibility from Telstra TV customers."

Will this matrix operate with:
"Compatibility with Foxtel IQ2 has been confirmed by us as of May 2016 and we've heard good reports with the Foxtel IQ3 and IQ4. However this product does have reported compatibility issues with Apple TV and no information is known regarding TiVo compatibility."
