Big Screen TV Splitter

Post by gwolanin » Wed Jan 08, 2003 10:51 am

Does anyone know of a splitter [ or combiner in this case ] that will take two inputs, combine them, but split them on a big screen television so that they are of equal size?<p>I am basically looking for an H-splitter. As you may know the PiP is too small and I would like to utilize the full screen on the TV.<p>Thanks in advance for your help.

I haven't seen anything exactly like that. You may want to try your question in the Ausio Visual Forum there are some hard core couch potatos there who may be able to help you.<p>If your bigscreen TV can take input from a PC you may have other options. A couple of USB video capture cards and you're almost there. Some people have been making some great Tivo like machines out of Linix systems and the PC dosen't even have to be that fast.

The spy and surveillance companies have dual and quad splitters that you can buy. You take two or four inputs usually in the 6 MHZ range like a camera out put or satellite box and tap them into this box, and it sends out one signal to you TV that is split screen [or quad] in the channel 3 or 4 range, while others do it in the video output range of 6 MHz. Most TVs today can accecpt either signal in, 6 mhz or the standard 66/72 mhz etc channel 3/4.
