    The problem is that when R clicking the sound icon in the tray & selecting playback devices the connected HDMI device that is shown has the name of my old tv not the new one. It is working though.

    That's because of the splitter. The splitter just feeds the one video signal to two devices. The PC has no way of knowing there are two monitors connected, it only see's the one device, the splitter. What gets show is likely the last device you had connected directly to the video card. Plug the new TV directly into the PC for one boot up. Then plug the splitter back in and see what it shows. The other alternative is the splitter just sends one EDID from what ever device is connected to its no 1 port. In that case swap your two monitor cables on the splitter and see what happens.

    I switched the 2 outputs of the splitter & playback device NAME was changed to the monitor. Although it doesn't show the tv being connected, it is. This also changed screen resolution. I switched the outputs again & this had no effect ie. it still shows the HDMI connected to the monitor although the tv connection is working. I can't seem to get the tv connection to show up.

    You will never get both devices to show up at the same time when they are connected through the splitter. Plug the new TV directly into the PC, without the splitter and see if it's detected? If its shown correctly its the splitter thas messing up the auto detection of what device is connected.

    I'll have to get a dvi > HDMI to do that as at this time the only way to see my monitor & tv @ the same time is w/ the splitter. I don't expect to see both devices @ the same time. It seems strange that when I went back to the original it didn't change anything.
