I have a 6x2 HDMI Matrix, and I've been trying to figure out how it works, but I think it may be broken. I have 2 tv's that are connected to it, and they work normally. However, if I unplug the cable and simply move it to another port on the splitter, I get a blue screen on the TV. I also tried plugging in another monitor to screenshare to, and I simply get a "no signal." Am I using it wrong, or is it broken?

Hi, Dconst, and welcome to TSG.

Can you please provide the brand and exact model number of the matrix device or a link to a page selling it?

Lacking any further information, if it has 6 inputs and 2 outputs, it is most likely lets you switch each of two TVs between one of six HDMI video sources.

Thank you for the product link.

Are you referring to moving an HDMI source cable from one input to another input on the matrix? If so you need to manually operate the matrix for the TV output to switch to the new HDMI input connector.

I also tried plugging in another monitor to screenshare to, and I simply get a "no signal."
If you already have two TV sets connected to the two HDMI outputs of the matrix there are no more HDMI outputs on the matric to connect a monitor. Where are you connecting the monitor?

I was plugging it into an input, I now assume. The way it is has it setup so that it goes to a network of TV's throughout the building, using a combination of adaptors, HDMI splitters, and ethernet cables. I must have gotten confused since I only have 2 inputs but multiple outputs. Thank you for the clarification.
