Can I connect multiple TVs to one media player

The media player comes with one HDMI output port. But you may connect this device to multiple TV screens through the use of an HDMI splitter/amplifier, obtained separately, which will display the same content on each screen. Your subscription is paid per device, not per screen, so there would be no additional charges from AutoNetTV for a multi-screen configuration.


In order to connect multiple screens with the same player (all showing the same content), you will need an HDMI splitter or amplifier. These usually split 1×2, 1×4, 1×6 or 1×8. In other words, you plug one end of an HDMI cable into the media player, and the other end into the input port of an HDMI splitter. Then, you’ll plug as many additional HDMI cables as needed or available from this device into your various TVs. Each TV will then display the same content. An internet search will show a lot of options for these devices, which generally cost between $50 and $500 (www.Monoprice.com, www.BHphotovideo.com, etc.). 


If you wish to have different content showing on different screens, then you’ll need to purchase an additional media player for each screen you want different.


NOTE - The system does not work with Insignia and RCA brand TVs.
