    You may need a selector rather than a splitter. Splitters unlike selectors can have HDMI handshake issues.

    Please note that the quality is better when you use no splitter.

    Yes... The input to the splitter is from the cable box. The output feeds a Receiver and other TV's in different rooms..

    The receiver sends it's info to living room TV.
