Hi all, i have just started a new project. I am currently having replastering done throughout my house so i though why not lay HDMI and Ethernet cables in while the walls are exposed.
Anyway i have be looking all over ebay and google for a 5 way hdmi splitter (the cheapest i could find was over £400).
I have 4 source devices (so i will need 4 splitters) and 5 TV's throughout the house, so i want each source going into their own splitter and then a 4:1 switch connected to each TV.
Does anyone know of a place that can seel the 5 way splitter for under £20, old fashioned scart ones are only £2 on amazon so i certainly dont wanna be paying over £400 for HD ones.
If anyone can think of a better way of doing it,any advice would be much appreciated.

Re: New project
What you're wanting to achieve will be expensive, theres no getting away from it.. You're going to need an HDMI Matrix.. A cheapo starter matrix with "4 input 2 output" can be had for as little as 35 quid..

But when you start wanting a Matrix with more inputs and outputs then the price of them rockets up. I guess its because there's not a massive domestic demand for them (yet) so only the likes of commercial premises are buying them, so higher manufacturing costs due to small numbers, and a higher product markup because commercial users will pay it..
