Only have one HDMI on TV
« on: November 20, 2013, 04:48:16 PM »
I only have one HDMI port on my TV. Can I use one of the HDMI splitters like you find at Walmart or Radio Shack? It is called a Comprehensive CSW-HD201C Comprehensive 2 Port HDMI Switcher at Walmart.

I can also hook up the old RCA cables to my TV if I have to and free up the HDMI slot. But I'm not sure I can do that with my DVR box.

You didn't mention whether or not you have an AVR unit, but many have multiple HDMI inputs. I've plugged my Ccast into a port on my AVR and use that input to the TV.
I have no knowledge of the splitter you asked about, good luck.
