    Default HDMI Splitter?

    I want to run another HDMI from my Satellite directly to my display so I can bypass the HT set up for normal viewing (news etc). My Satellite box only has one HDMI out though. Is there a splitter for that? If so, does it degrade the signal in any way?
    TIA

    Well did a search for them and came across this, not that I have any experience about them.

    A splitter will not degrade the quality at all. The problem is actually whether or not it will cause HDCP handshake issues. This one is supposed to work well:

    Darla, could you do what you wish to do with a component video cables and an optical input or analog audio to TV directly, leaving the HDMI to the AVR to TV HDMI?

    Thanks guys. I picked up the one from Monoprice. One more thing to plug in but I would rather that than run the Integra 9.9 and the Parasound for the weather!

    Disney, I suppose I could but I just wanted one cable.
