This is pretty simple but I'm posting about it because it was more of a hassle than it should have been and I found such an inexpensive way to do it.
I have a Yamaha Aventage BD-A1060 combination Bluray and SACD player that has only one HDMI output feeding to an XMC-1 ver 1.4 in an acoustically treated dedicated home theater/listening room. I have an XMC-1 trigger output configured to turn on my projector and lower the screen for videos whenever I select the HDMI input from the bluray player. Unfortunately, because of digital rights management, the only way to pass digital music from an SACD (DSD file format) to the XMC-1 is over that same HDMI output on the Yamaha combo bluray/sacd player and that activates the trigger to turn on the projector and lower the screen when they're not needed or wanted for just listening to music.
To me, the obvious way to fix this was to get an active HDMI splitter to send the same signal from the Yamaha player to two HDMI inputs on the XMC-1 so I could configure the triggers differently but it wasn't as simple as just buying a splitter and inserting it. I went through three splitters claiming to support all audio files before I found one that actually does pass the DSD datastream unmodified so the XMC-1 recognizes it as DSD.
The one I found that works is Orei model HD-102 and it was the cheapest one I tried at only $16.99 from Amazon.
