Re: hdmi splitters

 You actually need an HDMI switcher, will allow several sources to be fed into a single socket (on the TV), and not a splitter, which allows one HDMI output to feed several display devices (eg a TV, a projector and so on). Several companies make such switches - we've always had good results with the remote-control one from QED. Not cheap, but works well.

Hi Jon

Haven't tested the Cyp or Techlink ones I'm afraid, but we're hoping to look at a few more HDMI switchers in the next Ultimate Guide to Home Cinema, so will keep you posted.
