Will this HDMI setup work?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
*please move if in the wrong forum*

Hi,
I'm about to buy some things that support HDMI. As the only HDMI things I have right now are my TV and my PS3, I don't have any troubles with my setup. But with the things I'm going to buy, I get really confused.
Basically I need you guys to tell me if this setup works or not:

It begins with my laptop, an Acer Aspire with HDMI input.
The first cable will go to an Acer Touchscreen monitor from my laptop.
Now I want to be able to play on my PS on the monitor, so between the touchscreen and the PS will be another HDMI cable.
So what we have now is:
Laptop > Screen < PS3.
I'm also going to buy a Full HD beamer. I want to be able to play PS on it AND watch movies from my laptop on it.
So now we have a circle:

Laptop>screen<ps3>beamer<laptop

Will this be possible?

Yes, I believe you could make this work with the use of a 2 input, 2 output HDMI Splitter Switch.

You'd wire your 2 Output devices (PS3, Lappy) to the Input of the switch, and the Output of the switch to your 2 Input devices (Monitor, Projector).

The switch, depending on the price, would be manipulated by either remote control or buttons on the unit itself.

Hope that helps.
