Split my HDMI to help cool my room.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I was wondering what kind of splitter I would need to split the HDMI cable from my Directv. I want to send both the single to my receiver and to my tv. ( it already go to my tv through my reciver) That way we can watch tv with full 7.1 OR 5.1 Dolby ect with my 1.3a cables… or we can just by pass the home theater and just use the tv for other shows. The reason for this is my system really warms up the room. Looking to take the HDMI from the directv , split it to my tv and my reciver.

Can you recommend something for me?

Depending on your TV, you might be able to just run the HDMI from the DirecTV receiver straight into the TV, then run an optical or coax cable from the TV's digital out to the receiver. Assuming the TV will pass the audio signal (my 3 year old Sony does), there wouldn't be any quality loss since DTV uses at best 5.1 Dolby Digital.

I don't have an out on my tv. But, how about if I try this. I go out of my component outputs on my dtv into my tv? will they still work even though i have my hdmi cable hooked up?

That might work. Honestly, I'm not sure which combinations of outputs the DirecTV will run simultaneously. I think the next thing I'd try is running an optical or coax cable from the DTV receiver into the AVR and HDMI from the DTV receiver into the TV. If that doesn't work, then start adding analog cables into the mix.

I just got a new component cable and went out of my dtv into my tv by passing my receiver and amps and it works great!
