Does anyone use an HDMI splitter.  We have a setup now where we have 8 tvs already wired into a splitter for dvd play.  Seems I could save a lot of money by just buying on CPU Box to replay the dvd player.. Is that possible

hi Steve,

Why dont you use intel compute stick instead of buying a splitter.

Hi Steven,

If you already have that infrastructure in place, you should be all set.  You can quickly test just by plugging a laptop in to the input where the DVD player is connected to ease your mind.  Probably don't need to say it, but I'm saying it anyway - if you plug your CPU into that input, you are going to get the same content on all displays.  If you want different content on each display, then you will need a different CPU for each display that you want different content on.

Thanks Ray - what if the monitors are different sizes/resolutions that are being feed from from the splitter. Will the presentation show fine.. I'll have to test it once I get the Chromebox in from Amazon

Steven,

If the displays are different resolutions, you will have an issue with the Rise content.  Size of the display doesn't matter at all - it's the resolution that is crucial.  If you haven't already set up an account with Rise, I would do it and create  a 1920x1080 presentation (it's all free).  Then using a laptop or other spare PC you have, temporarily set it up as a player and connect it to your distribution and see if it looks correct on all displays.
