Set up of 4 way split screen for TV

by giocatore4 / August 30, 2006 9:05 AM PDT

I am in the market for a new tv. I would like a set up where i could get perhaps a 60" tv, or perhaps a projection system. One of the main things that i am looking to do however, it split the screen into 4. This is basically for sporting events, so the screen would have 1 game in each corner of the screen. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to set this up, or the best way to do it? Thanks very much!

.....have an answer for you. However, I might suggest you call a reputable top flight dealer who specializes in commercial/industrial TV's like Visual Apex. Many of the large plasmas like the Panny 58'' or 65" or some of the digital projectors might have this capability?

Sunday Ticket from Direct TV is the best thing since sliced bread! You can see all the games in split screen and moving your cursor from game to game brings up the audio. Suweeeet!

You must be crazy about football I would be ready for the nut house if I wanted to see four different programs I have a problem when n.a.s.c.a.r. and drag racing come on at the same time hitting that recall button makes me want to SCREEM. the only way I can calm down is switch on home and gardens. and learn how to trim the roses and mow the grass mabey you should quit football and watch golf The thrilling thing about golf is they take along this birdy to every event and you can hear it chirp in 5.1. sound and watch the grass grow I hate football boring boring stewee

This is for the Pros

I saw a Toshiba LCD set that had 4-way screen. The TV had 4 HDMI inputs so it could take four sources, which is basically what you would need to do. Many TVs have dual tuners to allow for a single split screen. You would need four tuners to allow a 4-way split an four inputs to do this. The Toshiba TV I saw had such a high resolution that each of the 4-way screens were displayed in 1080p format. What's four times 1080? That was the resolution. By the way, the TV was hugely expensive. Nothing for us mere mortals.
