Hey guys,


Not sure where this should have been posted but I currently have this TV sitting in my bedroom and my gf just got a Sony 1080 upscaling DVD player for X-mas


This TV currently only has one HDMI port.


Technically speaking, what should I do here?


Should I connect the HD cable box via component cables and the dvd player via HDMI or vice versa?


Can I get some type of 2 port HDMI spiltter? Would that weaken the signal? Any recommedations would be great.


Thanks!

Cable box with component (red/green/blue) is fine, will work well. Broadcast max is 1080i and component works for that resolution. Tho your tv is 720p, so component is more than enuf.


DVD player with HDMI so it can upconvert the signal and send it to your tv, best option.


You could get a splitter, but component will work as well and provide an equal pic to HDMI so there really isn't a reason to do it. And a splitter can effect a signal as it passes thru, I'd go with the above.
