[Technology] New TV'S and HDMI connectors

Welcome to North Stand Chat - the biggest and best Brighton & Hove Albion fan site.

Go on - join - you know you want to! (Pssst: you'll get fewer ads too!)

My TV has just been written off by Currys repair service, I know have a voucher for a new one,
I know what size I want and am torn between LG and Samsung.

Most TV's now only have 2 HDMI connections I need 3 ( minimum) one for Sky One for Firestick and one for surround sound system.
I would like a 4th for DVD but thats hardly used now.

Anyone know how good the 3 to 1 HDMI connectors are ? and are they auto switching or manual?

My experience of these has been appalling, I bought a splitter with Remote control as I still run dvd/Blu-ray/ Virgin Media & Now Tv, had terrible trouble remote control wouldn’t work, in the end like u I guess I just unplugged and plugged.

Would love a solution myself

I have one to switch between work laptop and home desktop connection into my monitor and have found it very temperamental indeed, to the point where I have taken it out and just swap the cable over now. I would find that it would sometimes not recognise the desktop PC, and which ever way the switch was set it would show the laptop screen. Other times I would be using the desktop and it would randomly decide to switch over. Mine was a pretty cheap one off amazon but, reading the reveiws, it seems to be a fairly common problem with all of them. When it worked it was great, and it may be that it works much better with a TV than with computers

if youve got a surround system would you not consider getting a receiver . MY receiver will kick out better sound to the speakers and has 4 hdmi that just goes into 1 on the tv. More expense obviously.

I've got a 60" LG and it has 3 HDMI. Deal going on in Argos at the moment.

Thanks for your link chap - I just bought that too, picking it up tomorrow. I've been in the market for a while, and have been hovering over a Sony Bravia 65" for £729. But that seemed a mite excessive sizewise for my living room. The spec on that LG is very close, and the 60" screen will fit better. £450, happy days.

Only thing is, going from HD to 4k I guess I'll have to upgrade to Sky Q, which is an extra £7 a month. But it will deliver Multiroom into the deal, which will make my son and the doris happy.
