A potential client has two tvs in their lobby. They'd like to play the same content on both tvs. My question is will they play simultaneously or will there be a lag between them? The content would include videos so we want them to be 100% in sync so that there is not an echo. If each TV has its own media player will they be in sync or are we better off to use an HDMI splitter and run two cables from one media player?

Ron, They will not play in sync, especially videos. You could try HDMI splitter.

Hi there - in this case, it would be better to run one media player and and HDMI splitter to ensure the exact same thing is happening at the same time on both displays.
