Hello superone1973

Keep in mind the key functionality of a Matrix is Any Input to Any Output - slap a couple of passive or active Splitters on a 4x2 Matrix and you can have one source to one pair of Displays plus the same or a different source to the Other pair of Displays; its still a 4x2.

Using any form of Splitter on the Output of some Matrix gear is a lottery.

Using any form of Passive Splitter on any Matrix is also a lottery.

HDMI includes fairly complex handshaking and encryption protocols which are easily broken in complex set-ups.
