HDMI splitter for one port TV

My TV is not a smart TV and only has one HDMI port which is used by the DirectV HDMI cable. I want to add a DVD player. Could I use a splitter for this? I'd have to put the DirectV connection into the splitter.

    yes I did this once with a cable box and a xbox360 and a dvd player. I got a 3 into 1 on ebay pretty cheap. its actually a switch looked like this http://www.ebay.com/itm/3-Port-HDMI-Switch-Switcher-Splitter-1080P-HDTV-HD-Video-DVD-PS3-Remote-Selector-/310714552461?pt=US_Video_Cables_Adapters&hash=item485807d08d
  2. you want a hdmi switch not a splitter.

    you may want hdcp support though like this one has for a bit more. its only 2:1 though
