Wow... I feel like an idiot. I didn't even notice that this was a splitter, I just thought it was a switch. I guess I wasn't paying attention to the item details, as much as I was to the rebates and prices.

Reps coming your way. woot

FYI: I checked Bytecc's address on and it says that the city should be addressed as "Ontario", not "City of Ontario". Might make a difference to USPS' automated sorting machines.

I checked the BYTECC REBATE CENTER address on USPS and it is showing up as valid address.

However I have no idea about the reputation of the manufacturer in honoring rebates.

Yeah, it should be a decent splitter.

This splitter is made by the same company (Bytecc) as the switch I previously mentioned.

They had the 3 x 1 Bytecc HDMI Switch (Model: HMSW301SM).... available for FAR during Fry's Anniversary Sales and on Black Friday this year.

Hey thanks for the thread. Do you remember if this was the HDMI splitter that you recommended (AR) maybe a month or so ago. I don't remember if it was your thread or if you just replied in it. Seems like it was Bytecc, and I remember it was from Fry's for sure.

Anyway, wondering if this was the one you recommended back then?

Every rebate, except for the Merax Wastebasket and Bytecc HDMI Splitter, accept a copy of the Order Invoice.

You can scan it when it arrives and print a photocopy for each rebate.

If you are ordering both the Merax Wastebasket and Bytecc HDMI Splitter, I recommend sending the original Invoice to Bytecc and a copy of the Invoice to Merax.

I've done this before and they approved the rebate anyways.
I tested this splitter right now and it is transparent - no dropped frames, spots, lines, and it even passes through 7 channel DTS and AC3 without stutter.

Good product - which brings me to the next question - the MIR EEK!

I had stayed away from Bytecc because of all the horror stories - I needed a switch but did not get theirs precisely for this reason, but this splitter is very good.

So help me(us) out - I bought this from Fry's retail, and they give a separate product specific invoice per rebate - so I have just a copy of the original invoice for this Bytecc splitter.

How should I proceed:

1. Mail in this copy of the original invoice for just this Bytecc splitter as provided by Frys
2. .. or mail in a copy of the original invoice containing all items I bought with the Bytecc splitter circled
3. Original UPC code pasted to the rebate form
4. Send certified ($5 total cost of mailing) or use electronic stamp from USPS ($0.45 total cost of mailing). The electronic stamp from USPS is just the stamp but you get a receipt which tells where area (not exact address) you mailed to with the date.
5. Which address to send to?

I really don't want to mess up this rebate but if there is even a slight chance of this MIR causing me trouble I am out (and I have done all Fry's rebates without issues since 2007 - none of them certified, but I always tended to stay away from companies like Bytecc which had complains here)
