HDMI splitters?
« on: November 17, 2013, 11:10:27 AM »
Soooo I dunno why I didnt think of this when i bought the tv a few months ago, but I'm already out of HDMI slots (ps3, 360, cable box)

Does anyone know if there's a loss in quality with HDMI splitters or would that be a good thing to get when I get a ps4? Anyone know a good one to get? The ones i'm seeing are a bit more expensive than i was hoping (50 bucks)

Splitter takes one source and sends it to multiple tvs.

You are wanting a switcher or router.

I have a 4x2 router so I can send numerous inputs to two different tvs. 

Monoprice.com has good pricing on them.

or if you have an av receiver, you can connect your ps3, 360, etc. to the av receiver via hdmi connections.  and the receiver's hdmi out to the tv.

or you can save space by connecting the 360 or the cable box to the tv via analog component video input so you can save an hdmi connection.  the ps3 can playback blu ray so leave hdmi as it is...

i never try the splitter so i don't know, but vid said splitter sends it to multiple tvs...so maybe a switcher or a router would works.  i agree with him monoprice.com sells pretty good products and cheap too.
