I don't see any HDMI splitters that do what you want, but googling for "component splitters" does show some promise. Apple TV, when using component cables, is limited to 1080i resolution.

What you need to do is use the component cables out of the atv to a small box that replictes the signal to N other connectors. You then connect the TVs up
to those replicated connectors.

Use google to find a component video replicator or splitter as it is sometimes known as. Note that you also need to replicate the audio, so any box will want to do both.

You can't simply split a signal from one cable to many since the signal is severly degraded each time.

Cheers Ed.
