Thanks. Note that a splitter is for connecting multiple TVs to one source, while a switch is for connecting multiple sources to one TV.

Several specifications to consider in a splitter, and at many suppliers, even Monoprice, the full specifications are not included for all devices. For best future capability I should probably look for 4K capability at 60Hz and 4:4:4 colour. However I’m not sure current consumer devices such as a DVR actually output 4K 60hz 4:4:4 so maybe a lower end splitter would be OK. As most of the splitters are affordable between $20 and $100 I might as well get the best one I can find. HDMI often has connection problems so I will check the reviews for reliability issues.
