Ok as we know there is only one hdmi space coming out of the Directv receiver. At this time i am running threw my Denon. So this means it is on when the tv is on.I like to stop using the Denon some of the time not all . So what is better a HDMI 1X2 Switcher or a 1x2 splitter. I only need the 1x2. Thank you all.
