Can Apple tv share an HDMI port with cable box?

Both my HDMI ports are taken by the Blue Ray and the Cable box.

    If you have an HDMI selector box, like a KVM, then YES you can use a single port. I would research the HDMI selector box that you're looking to purchase to make sure it's HDCP compliant, or the AppleTV may not work with it. Another way to solve this problem is to pair your cable box and Blu Ray player on the switch box and connect your Apple TV directly to the other HDMI port.
