Looking at this 6x2 splitter, thoughts?


#1

I’m looking at this 6x2 HDMI splitter for my battlestation after I move. I want something that will be a little future-proof so I thought I’d go 6x2 instead of 4x2.

I have 2 mounted displays that I’ll be using and I want to be able to put any device on any display.

  1. Streaming Box
  2. Gaming Rig
  3. PS4
  4. Mac

What I haven’t quite figured out is how to gather items 2, 3, and 4 and input their output to 1 (for recording and streaming) without having to manually switch. I suppose what I need is another switcher for that input that goes out to each of them.

I’m going to try to diagram it out later today.

I use a 4x2 HDMI and one output routes through my Elgato HD60 the uses the pass-through to get to the TV; would that not work to stream/record anything you’re playing without changing cords around?

Yeah that would work. I would just say “the streaming source is on the left” always or something.

That’s pretty well what I do; TV = Stream source for me.
