Hello – thank you for taking the time to read my thread.

I would like to know if It is possible to buy a screen splitter (or whatever they are called) – where I could have different sources displayed on my plasma- say if I attached 4 different DTT boxes to have 4 split windows on the plasma displaying all 4 channels?

Thanks, its just an idea I had.

HI,
i use these for cctv http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/New-CCTV-4-ch-digital-video-color-quad-processor_W0QQitemZ5814664248QQcategoryZ60839QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

Similar principle and cheap enough.

It all depends on the pq you need , you simply connect the 4 sources to the inputs and you have 1 monitor out that goes to the plasma, this will divide the plasma into 4, or other options inc pip and pop.
Hello
Thank you for your reply

So you have the splitter for the CCTV - Do you have any photographs that you can show me of the quad on your plasma? would love to see that

I assume that PQ means picture quality? - Im a news junkie and would like to have a plasma displaying like 4 news channels (lol i know it sounds strange lol)

I use an 8 channel splitter for cctv at home, i plug this into a distribution amp and send it round the tv's in the house so they all have a seperate av input, works well.

It seems a tad expensive to buy 4 stb's and a splitter, although you could do it for £250 i suppose.

Cant understand why you want to watch 4 news channels at once mind, i try to avoid the news by watching the Simpsons :)

Thanks for your reply.

I like to see how the networks cover the news etc , i.e breaking news.

What would the picture quality be like if i did get that box or similar to what you had to split the screen?

Ahhh a bit of research then.

The pq is very watchable, for what you want to do it would be perfect, i'm not 100% sure, but i dont think you will find a cheaper way to do it.

Saying that i have a Dell 20" monitor and you can feed it 2 video inputs that can go pip, £600 though and still not enough inputs for you........

The £50 splitter is the way i would go, with the Simpsons of course...... :)

Hi Again

Thanks for your reply.

I've looked at a picture of the back of the splitter box. Which lead would i need to connect the DTT box to the Splitter box?

Thanks
