What to do if your TV doesn’t have enough HDMI cable ports?

One of the main benefits of HDMI cables is that they carry both audio and video signals, which means that you only need one cable whereas in the past you would have needed at least two. This can completely de-clutter your home entertainment system, as well as making it quicker and easier to connect everything up.
However, there are situations where you may need to connect more than one HDMI-enabled device to your TV. Most new TVs have three or four HDMI ports for you to use for connecting devices, but some older or lower budget TVs may not. Even if you have four HDMI cable ports available, you may have more devices that you need to connect to your TV. So what do you do?
The answer could be an HDMI splitter, which gives you access to many more HDMI ports in just one compact set-top box. You simply use one of the HDMI ports on your TV to connect up your HDMI splitter, then plug in the HDMI cables from all your other devices into the splitter. It’s as simple as that, and it allows you to expand your home entertainment system as much as you like.
