HDMI Switch Help

Hi all,

I've seen a few deals for HDMI switches (for example here: http://hotukdeals.com/item/248903/3-port-hdmi-video-switch-with-remot/ ). These all seem to allow a single HDMI port on a TV to accept separate sources.

I am after the opposite - I want a switch that will take output from a PS3 etc and send it to two different TV's. Do these exist?

Cheers.

Think your after something like this -

EDIT: Or one of the above which is much cheaper!

Thanks both - good links - rep added.

Looks like I am looking for a "HDMI splitter". Do you know if the first one (the cable, not the switch) would lose any quality? I'm planning on connecting a PS3 to a TV in the conservatory which is a good few metres away...

Thanks again.

It shouldn't as its all digital.

Thanks, I was a bit worried that using the cable splitter, I'd lose some signal (presumably 5 metre and 1 metre cables plus a 1m cable leading to the splitter would be the equivalent of an 8 metre cable at least).

From doing a bit of research, it seems as though long cable lengths can cause instability but I'm not sure if the above qualifies for this.

Might buy the cable splitter, if I have problems I can always ebay it and buy the more expensive splitter.

Cheers.

If anybody else is after something similar, I've found a decent looking HDMI splitter in Maplin here. 2-way for £50.
