I have a computer with one HDMI ouput. I would like to be able to connect it to my tv, projector, and monitor without having to constantly change out the HDMI cords. Note- I will NOT be using any of the displays at the same time. I just need to be able to switch between them. Do I need a HDMI splitter or switcher? Can anyone recommend one?
Thank you.

check the back of the pc. if there dvi ports you can use dvi to hdmi cables. the easy way would be to put in a cheap gpu card that has two dvi ports. set your projector and tv onto those ports. if your mb has onboard video if the port is able to be turned on you can use that port.

Thank you for your quick response. Unfortunately, I only have one DVI port so I'd still need to "split" it somehow. I was hoping there is some type of HDMI switch that I could use since I'll never have any of the displays on at the same time.

Most HDMI switchers are for multiple inputs to one display. Just use an HDMI distribution amplifier. Just turn on the display (or displays) you want to see.
