I need to be able to put the same video from one dvd player onto 2 tv's. My Fire Department is doing a night at the races and we'll need to split the video onto 2 tv's in separate rooms and audio to the overhead system. Im thinking something like this http://www.amazon.com/3-RCA-RG-59-Component-Video-Splitter/dp/B001HQKB7I/ref=sr_1_9/189-8566488-7194167?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1244600374&sr=1-9 would be a good start for the video. Any suggestions?

Having dealt with Audio/Video recording and presentations over the past 15 years I would recommend getting a powered Composite Video Splitter.

I'm assuming you're using composite cables (red, white, yellow). If you're splitting and running to different rooms and the distance is over 75 or so feet, you should look at something amplified so that you have a decent signal.

ETA: Blitzer beat me to it, I even looked at the AV400!

Thanks guys. I think if we set it up right, I can keep the length under 20'. Maybe some dry runs are in order.
