    I'm adding a game console to my TV for my sons for Christmas, but I have already run out of a HDMI ports on my TV. :(

    Can anyone recommend a GOOD HDMI hub / splitter?


    I can find them online, but prices are all over the place not giving any idea bewteen what's "good" and what's overpriced for what it is?


    Thanks -


    Eric

    No brand names just stay away from Best Buy's way over priced splitters,$50-70 price tags. And stay away from Walmart low ball prices $5-20 prices. Some of the RCA's aren't too bad. Caution some switches don't work well with single ports HDMI.

    Thanks -

    My TV has multiple ports already, but they're already taken up by the cable box, and two other gaming platforms - we are now adding a fourth gaming platform, for which I do not have a port for. I don't want to swap out one of the other consolses, nor do I want to be constantly unplugging / plugging in the HDMI cables wearing out the ports on the TV (much less have the kids doing it :( ).

    When you say some switches don't work well with single ports HDMI, what exactly were you referring to, TVs w/ only ONE HDMI port?


    Thanks -

    The Belkin one listed above should be just fine. I purchased the cheapest one I could find on Ebay for a buddy and it worked great. $10.00 from China.
