Your DVR does this, not the TV.

If you don't have a DVR and are simply relying on plugging cameras straight into a TV you'll need to go and a buy a quad switcher.

Can you use a splitter/switch to send the signal to multiple displays?

It might help if you tell us what DVR you have.

VGA splitter then? One to the monitor and one to the TV?

I would like my camera feeds on multiple tvs 3 to be exact. I need some type of splitter if there is one?

VGA splitters come in up to 8 outputs quite easily to obtain, some DVR;s have a composite output on them, but the problem is that will look like crap on anything other than a small old CRT screen. I have the output of my DVR computers TV out going to a modulator so I can see it on all tvs, but thats taking it back to analog broadcast quality so its pretty hard to see anything, particually with all the crap around the edges that the DVR software ad's making the image even smaler.
