    Is there such a thing as an HDMI splitter - i.e. where you can plug several into a box with a single going out to TV? I have cable box, surround sound with dvd player, dvd recorder and now a Sony 400 disc CD/DVD player. Yes, a lot of different/overlapping items, but...The surround sound with dvd player gives me the best for play dvd; the dvd recorder is mainly to record from dvr to disc and the 400 cd/dvd changer is to get rid of cabinets/shelves for all cd's and dvd's.

    If there is such a item, which is the best?

    Thanks!

    OK, I found a couple listed on the Tech Tips Forum here from 2006. Has anyone had any experience with the following units:

    Octava - 4 Port HDMI Switch with TOSLINK Audio routing (this one has 4 inputs for optical audio as well)

    Monoprice - Product ID: 2777 5X1 Enhanced HDMI Switch with built-in Equalizer (REV.2.1)

    I will be hooking up a Scientific Explorer 8300HD DVR Cable Box - Samsung DVD Home Theatre System HT-QT70 - Sony 400 Disc CD/DVD Player CX995V - Sony DVD Recorder RDR-GX355 to a Samsung 56" DLP HD TV (has 2 HDMI inputs)

    Thanks!
