Yo, can someone please point me to a ps4 pro power cable for online purchase, need it urgently. 

 

Thanks for all the great recommendations :D Turns out desktop power cord works just fine. Got one locally for 110 INR. Weekend gaming saved :)

Does anyone use hdmi splitter here? Please suggest me one. Preferably 3 hdmi with a button to switch. All I can see is some unknown brands selling. If anyone is using it here for a long time, then please suggest one.

 

Sadly you have no option apart from Ching Chong widgets imported from AliExpress by Desi vyaparis.

 

There is an Amazon Basics HDMI Switch* but, idk if hdmi splitter and switch are the same.

 

basically these items are not hot sellers and don't have big profit margins, so it's just import from cheeni, rebrand, sell.

 

TLDR you have to buy these cheapshit items, use till they die, then get a new one.

 

Till you get one of those golden monitors with 2x HDMI and 1x DP that is.

Or a normal TV with 3x HDMI in

I think splitter is for one input and multiple outputs. Like one PS4 to two different monitors.

 

This is for connecting multiple sources to a display with only one HDMI.

 

Afaik, Belkin makes an HDMI splitter, but I dont see it on amazon. @dante77

Belkin's reliable enough.

Some people on IVG use the kinivo HDMI splitter.

 

On amazon.in some people give this splitter 5 stars and some give 1 star, the one star is like they got a DoA device or it died in a week or something :/

 

I wish there was one manufacturer who made quality accessories like this :fear:

 

like i wanted bluetooth dongle for PC, to use DS4 wirelessly, everywhere i saw only ching chong no name dongles, then i found one TP LINK one, turns out even that is a rebrand :rofl:

the driver on TPLINK page was wrong, then i had to use the driver that windows update provides for the dongle to work :lol:

Thanks guys. Looks like I'll be buying some cheap ones. I don't wanna spend too much on that either.
@chirag - that is a different gadget with no switch I guess. I am not sure if it is called the same. I think it is called the same lol.

I have seen some amateur Indian YouTube videos and this is exactly what I need. Price hike also happened lol. They mentioned 25-300 rs but these are now at least 500-600 rs but I am fine!

I think you need an HDMI switch, not splitter. 

 

Splitter is one which takes 1 HDMI signal, and splits it to be seen across multiple devices. 

 

Switcher is where you can plug multiple inputs (like a PS4, Xbox, Switch, STB) and output to a single device. I am using this: https://www.amazon.in/gp/product/B07MJ5HH97/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 

Works flawlessly, no remote though, so you have to press the button to switch between inputs. They ave devices with >2 inputs too.

Thanks man. Yeah. I am lookin for that only. I was looking for 3 hdmi but what the hell. 2 will do too. Work laptop personal laptop and ps4 to connect but no problem at all!

I don't need a remote lol. I will use it on a monitor so its fine.

Now. I searched on internet and found out that all hdmi cables are same with no quality difference. Is it true? If not, please suggest a good quality hdmi cable because I'll need that for the switch.

Yes hdmi quality is same. The gold plated and other bs is just scam. Hdmi is digital signal, so it either reaches to destination or not. There is no loss of quality like analogue signals. So go for any cheap hdmi.

Quality of the cable itself could be bad. I've seen cheap Chinese cables where the black insulation starts melting and gets sticky, or the pins of the HDMI cable get messed up.

 

I'd say spend a couple hundred more, get a decent cable (preferably made in india) and save yourself the trouble of buying cheap cables again and again.

I personally use 1 AmazonBasics and 1 Belkin cable, no problems.

Any idea where I can pick up a decent wired controller for PC? Using my dualshock and want an extra controller for co-op. Dont wanna shell 4.5k+ for another dualshock or xbone controller. There's an X360 controller in the cex nearby, but its likely to be heavily used. Would prefer going for a new one.

 

Amazon and FK either have crappy ones or overpriced PDP ones that cost over 3k
