Question HDMI Switch and Ethernet splitter

Hello

I currently have a HDMI 4in1 out switch, I also have a Ethernet splitter, 5 ports, and a broadlink rm pro which I use my phone to control my light, tv, sky and Xbox.
its a complete mess of cables and boxes and I can’t really keep it like this for too much longer.

is there a hdmi and Ethernet switch/splitter that could tidy my room up a bit? Only thing I can think of is an av receiver but can’t find one with Ethernet. My budget is small too, maybe £50 top end of my budget.

Whilst HDM has the capability to carry a 10/100 network connection it has never been utilised to share a network connection between devices.

Plenty of AVR have a wired or wireless network connection to allow firmware updates and content streaming.

Your HDMI and Ethernet signal paths will always stay separate.

Sorry I don’t think I communicated it correctly.

I have one of these
HDMI Switch 4k Amazon product

and one of these
Gigabit Ethernet 5 Ports Desktop Switch Amazon product

I am looking for one box that has both together, so it’s tidier less cables and cleaner

You would have the same number of cables and the market for a combined HDMI + Ethernet switch is pretty much non existent.

Grab some Hoop and Loop and stick the two units together.
