Hello all,
I have a ATI Radeon HD 5400 series Graphics card it Has 1 VGA, 1 HDMI and 1 DVI on it, I have 2 LG LED TV's 1 is a 47 inch and the other is a 32 inch which I am using as my pc monitor on the 32 inch it has no vga or dvi ports only 2 HDMI ports, I would like to connect both TV's to the graphics card via HDMI but the Radeon only has 1 HDMI port , Could I buy some sort of an adapter with extra HDMI ports and plug into my Graphics Card HDMI port and plug both TV's in, would that work?
I was looking at this product to plug into my video cards HDMI port,..

Thank you

the 47 inch does have a DVI, but then it wouldn't have sound I would need to buy another audio cable and possibly an adapter to plug my computer speaker and the tv sound to the back of my on board sound card, its just so much easier with HDMI lol

Don't get the one you linked because it has 3 *in* and 1 *out* and what you need is 1 in and 2 out. The only slight challenge I still have is that my smaller tv/monitor doesn't have built-in sound and I believe my windows sound driver is detecting (via hdmi) that it doesn't support sound so isn't sending the sound to either tv unless I disconnect the monitor. I may even get another smaller monitor w/ sound just to avoid this issue and use the current one on a different computer not connected via HDMI to the big TV.

Just installed a Sewell 1x2 hdmi splitter for a similar situation and it's working great! Very solid feeling metal device and it's small.
