chromecast (only one hdmi socket)


Novice Member
Hi, my dad has a sony bravia tv that is around 10 years old. It only has 1 hdmi input and i would like to buy him a chromecast device. My question is, if i buy an hdmi splitter (it thats the word) so that he can still plug his sky in as well as the chromecast devise will this work? Also will chromcast work ok with a tv that old? Thanks in advance guys.

You need to buy an hdmi switch not a splitter so that he can switch between the sky box and the chromecast no reason why it shouldn't work on that TV.
