    Hi, I've seen some questionable splitters on Amazon, but wanted to see if anyone had success with a HDMI splitter cable that would allow me to send the signal from a single TiVo box simultaneously to two televisions. A little box is a possibility, but hoping for just a cable-type splitter. Thanks!

    There is no such thing as a cable type splitter for hdmi that works. It has to be an active (powered) split. I am using this one to play a mini on 2 tv's at the same time. Amazon.com: OREI HD-102 1x2 1 Port HDMI Powered Splitter Ver 1.3 Certified for Full HD 1080P & 3D Support (One Input To Two Outputs): Home Audio & Theater

    Just make sure you have the newer hdmi cables and the tv's flashing when you turn one on and off is normal. One of my tv's wouldn't work with an old cable, that wasn't 1.2 or 1.3, not sure which one. Cable was probably 10 years old.

    Hope this helps.
