Nonetheless, will something like the Monoprice switch work in this way?http://www.monoprice.com/products/pr...seq=1&format=2
Or must one use an HDMI splitter instead (which do not seem to have switching capability and I fear may be more likely to cause signal degradation).
You need a 1x2,
1 input with 2 outputs
(dont think they make those yet)
That one you linked to wont work for your application,
its a 2x1, in other words 2 sources, to one display.
I'm using the monoprice 4x2 with good results
to split my signal from my Yamaha RX-V1800 to my Pioneer plasma/ Epson projector simultaneously
...no need to ever switch, just plug it in and forget it.
The other option is to plug up to four HDMI player/sources into the 4x2switch,
then run output A to your AVR for and then take the HDMI out from your AVR to your tv.
and Simultaneously run output B from the 4x2 to the projector.
I tried both, but prefer the first option and doing the switching with my AVR instead,
the remote that comes with the 4x2 seems quirky, perhaps if one was to program a Harmony remote to replace it,
that would have better switching performance. With up to 6 devices your asking for a lot of HDMI handshaking
