Man Cave 3 TV Setup

I have 3 TVs on one wall in my man cave. 1 52" flanked by 2 40" TVs. I have 3 different sources: 1 cable box, 1 Xbox One, and 1 Apple TV. I use them mostly for watching sports. When I need to switch a source to the main TV I end up having to swap HDMI cords between sources and it gets annoying. Is there a better way to allow me to remotely switch sources between all 3 TVs without physically switching the HDMI cords? I'm kind of a novice at this so any help is greatly appreciated.


Thanks.

Maybe something like this 4x4 matrix HDMI splitter from monoprice, but the reviews don't look too promising.

I've seen other cheaper options, but they were only for 2 displays.

Edit: Here's another option that's a bit cheaper. I've never used either of these....just trying to give options I've seen.

Happy to help. Many have had really good luck with monoprice on cables and such. They seem to be a good company.

Curious where you landed. Have the same setup and family isn't interested in manually screwing around with cables every time.

Wonder what the real difference is between those 2 examples. Considering the 140, but dang. :-\

Doesn't look like there are that many options TBH out there.
