The ViewHD audio extractor supports Amazon FireTV, Roku, etc. Please make sure the AV receiver can support the specified audio formats to have sound.
This ViewHD HDMI extractor has one HDMI input, one HDMI output, one SPDIF output and RCA L / R stereo audio output.
It can extract digital 2CH PCM stereo audio signal from the HDMI input and convert it to 2CH analog stereo output through its RCA style L/R analog output. The RCA L/R output will not have sound if the incoming audio is multi-channel audio (>2CH). Set EDID switch to 2CH for RCA L/T stereo application.
The SPDIF optical audio output supports all audio formats up to 5.1CH Dolby Digital 5.1CH / AC3, DTS 5.1CH AND Dolby Digital Plus "DD+" formats. TOSLINK optical audio output does not support higher formats, such as HD audio (Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD Master Audio, PCM5.1 and beyond).
The HDMI output has identical video and audio signals as the A/V signals coming into its HDMI input.
Audio Extractor, Universal 100V - 240V Power Adapter with US plug & User Manual.
Set audio EDID to 5.1CH for DD5.1CH / DTS5.1CH, use optical output to connect to audio receiver for surround sound.
HDMI output supports all formats including PCM5.1CH and beyond.
For 5.1CH PCM or above, set audio EDID to pass, connect HDMI output to receiver directly.
If no video, do: 1) power up the TV, 2) power up this extractor, 3) Power reset the HDMI source unit.

I specifically purchased this splitter to allow HD streaming and blue-ray video to be displayed on my InFocus SP5000 video projector which seems to be intermittently at best HDCP compliant. I also wanted to use the audio extractor to send 5.1ch audio to my Denon AV receiver which is also not reliably HDCP compliant. My source device is a computer running windows 7.
The splitter is working perfect for stripping HDCP, allowing 720P video to be displayed flawlessly on my SP5000 projector as well as on a LCD monitor, both connected to the splitter at the same time. I can now stream HD content from amazon and Netflix without HDCP error issues!!
As far as the audio extractor, it only seems to be able to pass 2ch audio despite the switch being set to “5.1ch.” I am pretty sure this is not the fault of the splitter and most likely a setting issue with the source device (my computer.)
Overall I give this splitter 5 stars since it solved my HDCP video issues.
I initially gave it a four-star only because it can get confused when plugging in an additional cable, causing the audio to cut out. Unplugging the power for 30 seconds and plugging it back in fixed the problem, but it was a little annoying to figure out. Turns out I should have reserved the Number One input for the MHL cable that comes with the unit, as that input port is designed to work with mobile devices that have HDMI out-my bad basically.
I don't experience the unit I received overheating as indicated in other post(s). If I had to guess, it would be that the person(s) experiencing overheating either received faulty units, or are running with all three inputs populated and feeding signal 24 hours a day, on a switcher than costs less than USD50, which I feel certain it was not meant to do. We watch TV for sometimes hours on end, and then turn it off for the night.
For anyone who doesn't really want to become the A/V guy or gal in high school, this is the unit for you.

Translation: This ViewHD HDMI switcher has all sorts of little bells and whistles and yet, you don't need to use them unless you want to. It's small, doesn't use much power, and works like a charm.
This unit has an amazing level of function granularity, yet includes an "Auto" function that pretty well takes care of everything for you: mash + gravy, cake + icing.
In my application, I have one of the infamous Sharp flat-screen TVs that has a fabulous picture, horrible sound, and and absolute inability to feed sound over the TOSLINK optical output to an external sound bar.
- Sharp LC-60LE550 60-inch Aquos 1080p 120Hz LED HDTV
- Sony DVPSR510H DVD Player
- DISH Network HOPPER Whole Home DVR System with Built-in Sling Box
- Yamaha ATS-1030 Sound Bar with Bluetooth
- Samsung Galaxy S5 cell phone w/HDMI out
NOTE: The Galaxy cell phone needs an MHL specification cable, and must be plugged into the Number One HDMI input port. The HD switch comes with an MHL cable, but you may want to get an E-More 1.8M HD1080P Micro USB MHL to HDMI HDTV Adapter Converter Mobile Phone Digital Cable.
SECOND NOTE: When I plug the MHL cable into the Number One input to service the cell phone HDMI out, while the unit is in "Auto" mode, the output goes blank, even though there is an HDMI signal on one of the other inputs. Beware, or be aware.
- Logitech Harmony 650 Remote Control
NOTE: The ViewHD HDMI switch comes with a small remote that works fine, but I wanted to use my Harmony remote. Thankfully the ViewHD HDMI switch is listed in the MyHarmony remote configuration software as, "ViewHD VHD-PRO3X1", and it was easy to install it to the Harmony remote, which now has access to every single manual function on the ViewHD switch.
- Three (3) 3-foot Amazon Basics HDMI cables (not included with the ViewHD switch)
- One (1) AmazonBasics Digital Optical Audio TOSLINK Cable - 3.28 Feet (not included with the ViewHD switch)
- One MHL specification Mini-HDMI to HDMI cable (included with the ViewHD switch)
- ViewHD 3x1 HDMI switch with plug-in power transformer
- The TV gets a single HDMI cable from the ViewHD switch's single HDMI output.
- The sound bar gets a single optical cable from the View HD switch's single TOSLINK port.
- The DVR, DVD player and Galaxy each get an HDMI cable into one (each) of the three (3) HDMI input ports on the HD switchm making sure the cell phone is going to the Number One HDMI input port.
So that's it. Plug it in and turn it on. Make sure the blue LED light on the front panel is on indicating "Auto" mode is engaged, and you should be in business.
I ordered the 3 in and 1 out that has the optical out as well. It works as a switcher but it does NOT strip out the HDCP. I am going to keep it so that I can use this to hook up an Amazon FireTV later and use the optical out since I still have an audio receiver without HDMI.
So, product works well but did not strip the HDCP.
Edit: I bought another brand of cheap splitter that did strip the HDCP. So this product definitely did NOT strip the HDCP.
This ViewHD HDMI Audio Extractor was the perfect solution. It was easy to use. I just placed it between the firestick's and projector's HDMI connections and run a couple of cables from the extractor's audio output and the Bose input and viola! Instant, vibrant sound. The quality of the sound was great and filled the room without distortion. Hard to believe that a $26 solution could be so elegant and so easy. We'll be having a lot more movies with this setup.
If you need an audio output from an HDMI feed this is a great solution. I would recommend it.
Can't speak to the 4k or 3D capabilities. My use is to switch HDMI inputs at 1080 and strip out Dolby Digital surround before passing video across the room to a projector. I need a 35 ft HDMI for that. This unit handles that nicely. A couple of my sources sometimes glitched on the long cable or had a momentary tearing effect on a frame of video now and again. None of that with this unit feeding the projector. Picture has been perfect at all times. The MHL input for connecting a phone is handy too.
So for a 1080 switcher and long cable buffer it does what I need for it to do.
