Trying to configure multible 24 inch LED's as menu boards for my small cafe in the Philippines. All of the TV's have only one port as does my Toshiba Satellite Laptop. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for your valube time and consideration.

you can get 8X output ports splitters at a reasonable price (less than $100). At worse, buy a 4X2 matrix switch and feed the 2 outs to two 1X8 splitters. Total cost will be $250 or less. Since all of your sets will have the same technical capability (ie. resolution, etc), the setup should "play" OK... although with hdmi, any multiple port "pathing" can have issues as hdmi was spec'ed as a single source and sink so "auxiliary" equipment manufacturers have to work with that "framework" as best they can... especially with restrictions associated with hdcp handshaking.... which potentially shouldn't be a problem if you are displaying "non-protected streams".
