TV Hdmi connection issues


Novice Member
I am trying to sort out my mother in laws Sony TV. It only has 2 hdmi ports but she needs at least 4. So bought a hdmi switcher and seemed OK as she had EE tv box. But they stopped offering TV service so we swapped her to Sky + box. But since connecting Sky to the switcher the switcher just keeps scrolling through the inputs. Tried to turn off auto switch but it keeps coming back on and then just starts scrolling again. I have read thst Sky can cause issues with switchers?
If this is the case could I set up as follows..
1. Keep Sky separate from switcher and connect direct to hdmi 1
2 connect switcher to hdmi 2 and then connect dvd, Netflix, cctv via the switcher.

Would this work?

My mother in law is 85 and finds this very confusing. I have set her up with a one for all remote with watch TV and watch movie activities but as I said the switcher won't select the correct input?

Thank you

Disable HDMI CEC control on the SKY box - and any other device you find CEC control enabled on, inc. the TV.
