Default Looking for 2 HDMI-related devices. Need help.

1. An HDMI switcher that supports HDMI 2.0 (preferably 2.1, but I don't think those exist yet) for under 50 bucks. Basically 4K/60 (or more) support. I can't seem to find one.

2. And HDMI SPLITTER that also supports 2.0 (or 2.1), that will allow me to split both the audio and video signal to TWO output devices simultaneously. And preferably for a reasonable price.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

I don't think any HDMI ports are 2.1 at the moment.

I'm aware, hence I alluded to that in my post. 2.0 is perfectly acceptable for me for now. That and the price are the most important things for me.

For 4K, I wouldn't use a HDMI switcher nor a converter because, it may interfere or degrade the video quality of your TV, by not getting a good and proper connection. Switchers have an tendency to go bad and become defected, and will cause problems with your TV. So it's best to connect the HDMI cables direct into the tv. I remember when I used a HDMI switcher for my other Blu-ray and HD-DVD player, and periodically when I switched from the Blu-ray player to the HD-DVD, the switcher was not transmitting the signal completely, and the video was distorted. So I had to continually switch back and forth until the HD-DVD player transmitted the full signal, or sometime it switched HDMI inputs, and sometimes it didn't. HDMI switchers can be glitchy and a hassle, especially if it's not working right, so it's best not to use a switcher at all. You will always receive optimal performance of your TV and other A/V equipment, when it's connected direct to the source, without jeopardizing by degrading the quality when you're using a switcher.

Try searching the 4K forum here, instead of this forum. I think there were same questions recently, maybe use ‘HDMI switch’ as your search term. Good luck hunting. I use a 1.4 input switch on one of my HD sets. No experience with 2.0 switches.
