    Hi,

    does anyone know if there are any HDMI Splitters that work for both Xbox One and PS4 ????

    The reason I'm asking is because my TV only has 1 HDMI port and I recently bought a HDMI Splitter for £15 but it did not work at all!!!

    Also what's the best External Hard Drive that you think I should get for the Xbox One ???

    If you haven't guessed it already I suck with this kind of knowledge on this tech stuff haha!!

    Thank you to all who reply!!!

    Are there any HDMI Splitters compatible with Xbox one

    Yes, I use the Monoprice 8204. Cable box to HDMI input on 8204 then one output to Xbox One and the other to my AVR (then to TV, or if you don't have an AVR, directly to TV). Works great and gives me the option of watching TV with or without the Xbox One.

    XBox One dual output for cinema projection- HDMI video, AV audio

    Hi Enfynet,

    The Xbox One only has 1 HDMI out. The only way to use a dual out would be to have an HDMI splitter of some sort. Using a splitter you'd be able to supply video to each of your devices. If your device doesn't use HDMI, I would recommend getting with the
    manufacturer of your video device, and seeing if there was a compatible HDMI to (other video type).

    Question about hdmi splitter and connecting through the cable box

    You are actually using a HDMI switch, which is different from a splitter. You need a 1 in 2 out HDMI splitter. You will connect the HDMI from you cable/sat box to the splitter, then 1 HDMI from the splitter directly to your TV to watch like normal. Then
    the other HDMI from the splitter to your Xbox one HDMI input, and another HDMI from Xbox one output to the TV. Check out the video like I posted for more info.

    XBOX One X - HDMI Splitter into Input

    I was using a 4x splitter with the "out" HDMI to a 5040UB Epson Projector. I plugged the xbox into one of the 4 input hdmi spots on the splitter. My laptop was put into another and a TV Box into another. It did not work. The screen frequently blanked
    out and during any video activity from any of the input devices did the same. I changed all the HDMI cables to the best 4x I could buy and this still didn't help.

    However, when I connected the splitter to the Xbox one x (one of two HDMI connections) and the Xbox one directly to the projector everything worked perfectly. I could switch between any of the inputs to the splitter. Of course when I wanted to use the
    xbox one x for all the xbox stuff I simply went to the xbox home screen and away things worked with no issues.

    [/quote] Thanks for that video. J was going to do this, but was reading that Xfinity/Comcast boxes detect splitters as copying devices and the box locks out. Can you confirm your cable provider and cable box model? Also, how was your xb1 shutting off when you
    switched inputs?
