We have been getting a lot of calls lately from customers wondering if they need a switch or splitter.
Also calls from customers that ordered a switch and needed a splitter or ordered a splitter and needed a switch.
He are the differences between a HDMI Switch and HDMI Splitter.
HDMI Switches are best used if you have more that 1 HDMI source like a cable box, PS3, satellite dish, Roku any item with an HDMI output and you only have 1 HDMI input on your TV.
With a HDMI switch you can select and switch your HDMI sources and see what you would like on your TV
HDMI Splitters are used if you would like to send a picture and audio from your HDMI source like a cable box, PS3, satellite dish, Roku any item with an HDMI output) to multiple TV's or displays.
An example would be you would like to take the HDMI output from your DirecTV and be able to watch the same picture in your living room and garage at the same time.
