    I'm thinking about getting the Apple TV device since it is on sale at Amazon for $89 . The problem that I have is that the TV that I want to connect it to has only one HDMI port. That port is currently being used by my Dish Network receiver. I was thinking that some sort of HDMI hub might be the solution, but each hub that I found had terrible reviews. What would be some good options for hooking up ATV to this particular TV. The TV is a six year old SONY XBR.

    Amazon is loaded with HDMI hubs for $10 that have 4-star reviews...looking for perfection?

    I would recommend MonoPrice

    HDMI spitters can be found here:

    If all your looking for 2 ports (Dish and ATV), this looks good:

    They have good HDMI cables too and other great products. I've ordered from the numerous times over the past 7+ years.



    As mentioned by the above poster, Amazon is a great place to look too. Probably a little cheaper.

    I like Monoprice as a source. Never been disappointed with a purchase. I searched for "HDMI Hub" and didn't get anything or I would have guided the OP there too.
