    What you are actually looking for is called an "HDMI Switcher". An HDMI Switch will have multiple HDMI inputs and one HDMI output. These can be found for as little as $10+ and many will offer between 2-5 HDMI inputs.

    Don't get this confused with an "HDMI Splitter" which will have one HDMI input and multiple HDMI outputs (used to connect to multiple displays or send audio to a receiver).

  • Yes works well have 3 connected to one HDMI port on tv, apple tv, and 2 blue ray players

  • I think that you want to switch between difference input device and one output to TV with HDMI port
    You should mean HDMI switcher.
    HDMI splitter will inverse (one input to many output)
    And if you want to many input to many output you must should HDMI matrix (matrix 4x4 for example)
    I don't know HDMI wire of Apple can support what HDMI version (1.3, 1.4a, or 2.0) but if you want only output VDO fullHD and audio not anymore it should enough.
