How to make 1 HDMI input displayed to 4 TVs?
I have 1 HDMI source and will need to display it to 4 TV. How to do it and what hardware do I need?
You need an HDMI DA (aka Distributed Amplifier aka Splitter)
They come in different flavors, e.g., 1 in 2 out, 1 in 4 out, 1 in 8 out & are commonly referred to as 1x2, 1x4, 1x8 etc
Here's an example: https://www.vanco1.com/product/hdmi-1x4-4k-splitter-hdr/
Here's another example: https://atlona.com/product/at-hdda-8/
There's also HDBT flavored DA's which will "transport" HDMI over CAT6 if you need longer distances or you already have Ethernet cable in place & can't run/don't need an HDMI cable.
If you provide more detail on your needs (you need 4k, control of hardware, IR, RS-232 etc), others can chime in.
does this one works? link text
One word of caution, HDMI performance between brands is very "YMMV".
I have no experience with the brand in your link, it should work.
Check Monoprice for a decent one at an equally decent price : https://www.monoprice.com/pages/hdmi_splitters

UG - all this DRM shit is just so painful. Switching from my Roku to Amazon TV takes almost a full min. and sometimes just won't switch. I end up having to power everything down and start over.
