HDMI Spliter/Switch advice please

  DJHicks 16:47 28 Jan 2008

hi there...

i have a tv with 1 hdmi port but want to attach both my dvd surround and xbox 360 to it...

ive seen so many switches etc... but alot are expensive

but i found a splitter (which is the cheapest option and supports upto 1080p etc).... its advertised for splitting one output to 2 outputs... having 1 male connector to a box with 2 female sockets..

is there any reason why this wouldnt work putting the 2 hdmi cables from my 360 and dvd player into the box and then the male connector in the tv...

obvisouly i wont ever have them on at the same time etc.. as with HDMI cables it doesnt matter which end you plug into a device it carries the signal either way etc! so in theory so should this box

please help if you can and thanks in advance!

I use one of these click here and it works perfectly as you wish to use it. In my case it's a Sky digibox and my DVD player.
