A newbie who buys an HDMI splitter inspired by your post will most probably be disappointed when noticing that he / she can only duplicate existing display, not extend his / her desktop.

    This is a news thread, read by many members and visitors, experienced geeks and newbies alike. In my opinion the information should remain valid and factual. Although your post was both, it managed to give a wrong impression.

    You know, a better reply had been "Sorry, I didn't think of that".
    IMO you were only trying to be insulting to me about my post. If you was really concerned about someone being mislead by my post you would have explained about the HDMI splitter only working to duplicate the screen and not for extending the screen.

    Please explain me how can a question "How does an HDMI splitter help in extending desktop to additional displays?" be taken as an insult?

    My only motive to post that question was to give you a chance to clarify your invalid comparison and tell that you didn't think of that. I did that rather than post "You are wrong!".

    It's funny how sensitive some members here are. Invalid information should not be corrected and if it will, it's called an insult. The ego beats the common good and value of valid information.

    Nice!

    It wasn't the question. It was the way your question made me feel. Why did it make me feel insulted? Nowhere in my post did I saw it would extend the display to multiple monitors/tvs. If you were concerned about someone being mislead by my post you would have explained that it wouldn't work for extending the display instead of asking a question you already knew the answer to. If I took your reply in the wrong way I apologize. If not I don't want to get myself into any trouble on this forum so I'm done on this subject.

    Signing out from this conversation after this:

    You very clearly compared a wireless display adapter to an HDMI splitter:

    The comparison is wrong and might mislead less advanced users, therefore my question.

    Really, why don't you just forget your ego for a moment and admit that the comparison was wrong. It happens to all of us but apparently admitting it is impossible to some. It can't be true that you keep arguing about this.
