    I will be getting the new ATV and i'd like to connect it to two a projector and a TV which i will watch on separate occasions. The ATV only has one HDMI output - how would i do this? If i get a splitter box, surely the quality will be diminished?

    With ATV1 you had the HDMI output and the component... Is really the best way now for quality to just plug/unplug every time? (a chore! :rolleyes: )

    Thanks for any advice

    Et Viola!!!

    I use one of these to connect my mac mini to my two TVs.

    I don't know if it carries audio as my 2009 mac mini doesn't output HDMI, I use a DVI to HDMI converter. If I'd had a crystal ball I would have waited for the new shape mini, why do Apple always do this to me!!!

    If ypu split a standard coax cable the quality takes a bit of a hit, but looking at the above referenced hdmi splitter, you should be fine, as its essentially just repeating the digital signal.

    haha, you know, that's probably the most 'thinking out the box' answer! :D
