I have a gateway portal that i want to connect to my amp but i was wondering if there was a way to split the hdmi cable so i dont always have to the amp turned on??? is this possible? and if so will it weaken the signal?
thanks for the help
Hi there power298,
I wouldn't recommend trying to split the HDMI connection, but I'd definitely recommend using two different types of cables. If you want to be able to use the TV audio without having your amp turned on, the best set up would probably be to run an HDMI cable to the TV, which will run the video/audio to the TV. Then you can run an optical audio cable from the Portal to the amp. That way, you can just mute the audio on the TV while you want to use the amp, or just turn off the amp and use the audio on the TV itself.
You can pick up any additional cables you may need at most electronics stores (Future Shop, Best Buy, NCIX, Memory Express etc).
