BCs for bifurcated pipe

I am having some convergence problems with a pipe simulation. The pipe has one inlet and two outlets (itīs more like a complicated channel than a pipe).
I want to compare simulations in laminar and compresible/incompressible regime in steady state with simpleFoam and rhoSimpleFoam.
About the BCs, I know the pressure at inlet and outlets, so I set:
The initial values are (0,0,0) for U and the outlet value for the initialization of p.
I have tried several meshes (checkMesh OK) created with snappyHexMesh, and the solution diverges (residuals donīt fall down with iterations).
Itīs weird, because if I do the simulation with two inlets and one outlet (and if I use the BCs for inlets and outlet explanied before) itīs converging.
Anybody can help me with the setup of BCs?
