I am considering a plasma tv that only has two HDMI inputs. I need three full time (dvr, bluray player, and PC) and fourth part time (HD comera). I'm thinking the best approach is to put the dvr in HDMI1 and the three way splitter in HDMI2. I've asked over at Monoprice and got differing recommendations and after reading reviews for their recommended devices, I was not feeling real positive about purchasing the product... Anyone have a good one to recommend?

You don't need a splitter you need a switch 3 or 4X1

I have used a lot of Monoprice products including a 2X4 matrix switch that have worked great.

I meant to type switch, had been on a different forum discussing OTA distribution with multiple splitters, thus the wrong word. I'll check your suggestion out. Thanks.

Interesting, I really like the switch that Phil recommended from Monoprice. Particularly nice that the user manual was available and I could see how to best set it up. Looks like a keeper. Thanks again Phil!
