Have just bought a smartvu x. My tv is set up through a ‘hub’. I have had to buy a 2 port hdmi splitter to connect both my sky box and this smartvu. I have followed instructions. Sky is working on hdmi1 but I have a blank screen for Hdmi2. Don’t know what to do and feeling very frustrated with the instructions right now

by splitter, do you mean a simple 2 to one or does it have a selectable switch? If its a 2 to 1 without a switch, then dont you have to unplug one before the other works?


What happens if you simply plug the smartvu in the hdmi input on the tv on its own without splitter?




Edit: this splitter is it a 1 in 2 out?  


edit 2: what is a "hub"
