    If I bought a Wii HDMI adapter, + this HDMI splitter box ( ) would it be possible to mirror the Wii's video signal to two separate monitors?

    If you're curious, I'm trying to build a cocktail arcade cabinet using a Wii and dual monitor setup (example: [​IMG] )

    you don't need HDMI for it. I bought a composite/component/S-video Distribution Amplifier from Radio Shack a few years back (it was 90% off, so I figured "why not?" even though I had no need at the time). takes in one signal and outputs four.

    something like this:

    As grossaffe mentions, you don't need an HDMI box or an HDMI splitter - all you need is a composite or component splitter (depending on what original AV hookup you're using) which are considerably cheaper.

    Here's a 2-way composite splitter:

    Same dealio, except component (just the video - you can handle the audio):

    If you'll browse long enough, you shouldn't pay more than $50-$60 for what you need.

    Monitors, huh? In that case both HDMI or a VGA box both make sense. :yay:
