Hi,

I need a splitter from my laptop to two monitors. I'm running a Lenovo Flex 5 to two Acer CB272 monitors. I need full functionality for extended screen capability. Running Win 11. Thanks in advance.

Best,

Maitai

No such HDMI splitter exists. An HDMI splitter will clone the output to the displays not extend.
Matrox makes a device called the dualhead2go that can but it uses displayport which your laptop lacks.
Another option would be to use HDMI for 1 display and a usb to hdmi adapter for the other. Just make sure the usb adapter can function as an external graphics card as there are usb c to hdmi that are adapters for thunderbolt ports(which you don't have so they will not work for you).

There also USB adapter for dual HDMI outputs

Thank you very much. People like me don't know the nomenclature, but you know what we're talking about. I received my hardware and it works perfectly. Many thanks. Maitai
