Theater Room! (on a Budget) in The Angry Leprechaun A blog by iwx Leprechaun Posted May 18, 2016 Nice guide, Lep. I didn't even know Walmart carried theater recliners like those; pretty cool. One question though - are you sure it's an HDMI splitter and not an HDMI switch that you're using? I thought splitters were for splitting the signal to multiple video outputs (like more than one TV/monitor, or a streaming device), whereas switches are more primarily used for switching the HDMI source (consoles etc.). Or do some splitters also act as a switch as well?
