            Got two of the these from B&H to split the signal from my macbook pro.
            Both didn't work with various display setups. Bought another brand and had no issue. B&H return policy is great!

            Works, with some help.

              Comments about Gefen EXT-DVI-142DL 1x2 Dual-Link DVI Splitter:

              3 stars, because it is quirky with HDCP signals coming from a Mac. I had to buy an additional piece of hardware for it to work. Otherwise, solidly built. Expensive! But, hopefully it will last for a long time!

              So, when you pay as much as you're paying for this box, you would assume that this splitter would just work. It does, however in some circumstances, it needs some help.

              Our setup, a mac mini sending a video signal from hdmi to dvi, into the splitter, then into 2 separate Gefen DVI to Cat6 send/receive boxes, to 2 projectors. Before installing the units in the ceiling at the projectors, I tested this setup on a monitor I had close by. When I plugged in the monitor, it didn't work. I swapped cables, didn't work. I then called tech support.

              The tech support guy was knowledgable, helpful, and quick to pick up the phone. Turns out I had the monitor plugged into output 2 of the splitter, and output 2 doesn't work until something is plugged into output 1. Good to know! I tested it on two monitors, and it worked.

              The other thing the tech support guy mentioned is that there are issues with sending a signal out of a mac into two different HDCP compliant devices. Apparently, the mac is sending out an HDCP signal hoping to find an HDCP device. If it does, then it turns on HDCP, HOWEVER, this splitter ONLY sends HDCP through Output 1! The second output will then show snow or a gray screen.

              So the Tech support guy says to buy the DVI Detective (either N or Plus), and this will tell the mac "these are not the HDCP devices you are looking for," and the mac turns off HDCP. In most cases then, this is fine when showing a powerpoint/keynote/something else. But it does NOT work when the mac forces HDCP on while playing a commercial DVD or copyrighted video purchased on iTunes. Then, the detective can't help you there.

              When I finally installed everything in the ceiling, sure enough, projector 1 worked, and projector 2 showed snow. Fortunately, I bought the DVI detective, and when I installed it, both projectors worked.

              Helpful Tech Support Guy did say that HDCP is not an issue with the HDMI splitter, only the DVI.

              Bottom line? The splitter works for us, with some help.

              Final signal flow: Out hdmi changed to DVI with adapter, into DVI detective, into DVI splitter, into 2 sets of DVI to Cat 6 send/receive units, into 2 projectors.

                  Comments about Gefen EXT-DVI-142DL 1x2 Dual-Link DVI Splitter:

                  Gefen continues to prove their leadership as a top video distribution provider. We were looking for a solid digital output DA for use in large projection environments. The EXT-DVI-142DL is easy to setup and interface with many DVI/HDMI sources and monitor/projector inputs. There is no loss of signal apparent, even when used as a splitter downstream from other DVI extenders is line. The added benefit of a high quality cable is included.

                    I use this splitter to clone my program monitor so my clients can see the program without having to look over my shoulder. This is a great product.
