I've currently got my HD TV connected to a Sky HD box as well as a Blu-ray player & a Lacie LaCinema HD media player all via HDMI.
However due to the digital switchover Iím considering replacing & upgrading 2 other older TVs which are only currently connected to Sky via RF rather than buying SAORview boxes for each ( Iím in Ireland)
I donít want to spend a fortune on this & my main priority is requirement No.1 which I think a 10M HDMI lead & Splitter will achieve.
However if I can also achieve requirement No.2 for a reasonable cost Iíd like to do that also now rather than end up spending more later by buying the wrong equipment now & needing to change it later.
No.1 : I want to send Sky HD (& possibly more of these HD sources) to another HD TV in a room, a 10M cable should do the this run.
No.2 : I also want to send Sky HD to another HD TV in a room which will require a 30M cable run.
I want to be able to watch Sky HD in all/any of the rooms at the same time regardless of whether any of the other TVs are on (maybe this isnít even an issue but Iíve seen it mentioned ?)
Iíve been doing a bit of reading up recently & Iím not sure what to go for.
I think Iíll need a HDMI Splitter such as this 2 Port HDMI Splitter | Video Splitters & Extenders | Sharing, Converting, Extending | LINDY EIRE
but most of these seem to have a maximium of 2 inputs even if theyíve got 4 outputs.
Iíve also considered a Matrix Switch Best buy HDMI
as this would allow me to distribute more than 1 source but it would only have 2 outputs.
Also as the one of the runs is 30M I think Iíll need to use a CAT5e/6 Extender HDMI CAT5e/6 Extender 30m | HDMI | Extenders | Audio / Video | LINDY EIRE
instead of HDMI.
I was wondering if anyone had any better recommendations/solutions or could point out any mistakes Iíve made ?
All advice appreciated
