HDMI splitter advice?

10
Found 20th Jan
Hi,

Does anyone have experience of an hdmi splitter, I’m wanting to connect one Xbox one and distribute it to 4 TVs around the house, I have tried an aukey one and another from amazon they were both under £20 and didn’t work as well as I hoped (black screens for a second now and then and sometimes just losing connection) connected are 3 TVs and a monitor via 2 10m hdmi cables and 2 5m cables, probably a much higher end version like the pubs use for sky sports would be the best but of course ££££’s

Thanks all

What exactly are you looking for as there are some different types. One can use one input and display it on multiple outputs without switching (useful if you want to show say the xbox on all the screens in your house at the same time), the other is one input which can be switched between the different outputs (means using normally a remote you can change which screen it sends the output to).
Something like?

Or Something like?

I think you're confusing yourself. The first item you link to is a splitter (what the op needs). The second is a switch, for connecting up to 4 sources to a single screen.

Definitely an hdmi splitter and not an hdmi switch, I think most in this price range will be generic, I guess I’m after experience of the more pricier units

Good advice on richer sounds, I don’t have one near me unfortunately but have bought from them before

The op says he's after a splitter! And your description of what a switch does is wrong, too.

He says quite clearly he wants to display Xbox on 4 screens so he needs a splitter not a switch which is what your second link is for

OP also said that he had bought something already and it didn’t quite do what he wanted, so this means that the op sounds unsure to me or they wouldn’t be asking for advice. Asking for clarification doesn’t hurt at all and would have expected the OP to paste the link to what they purchased for clarity.

Thanks for the comments, I know I need a splitter and not a switch, I have brought two splitters one I am sending back to amazon is a Neoteck 1 in 4 out and the other as stated is an aukey one in 4 out the vendor is not important because they are pretty generic units.

I know the difference between a splitter and a switch, what I’m asking is does anyone have experience of mid-high range splitter similar to the one pubs would use to distribute sky sports to multiple screens simultaneously.
