If you have more than one TV in your living room, the good news is that you now can set them up to show the same signal. There are several reasons you might consider a dual-TV set up in your home. The first is that you can stream specific content across all TVs in your room so everybody can watch it from every corner.
In other cases, you love watching sports games and a variety of things with your family at the same time. You are in the right place. I will show you how to set up multiple TVs in the section below.
Before we begin, here is what I have to make this setup work:
- Signal splitter or wireless transmitter
- Mounting Dream TV Mount TV Wall Mount with Swivel and Tilt ( in case you want to wall mount your TVs).
- Two TVs (I am using an LG OLED Evo C2 Series 42-inch Smart TV and an LG OLED B2 55″ 4K Smart TV)
- Roku Ultra Player.
How To Set Up Two TVs In A Room?
Assuming you have everything you need. Let’s jump into the steps to set up two TVs in your room.
Step 1: First off, check the input ports on your TVs. Both of my TVs feature up to 4 HDMI input ports (HDCP 2.2).
Step 2: Now, think about where you will place your TVs. I mounted two TVs right next to each other, and our couch was right in front of them. If you plan to mount your TVs, deciding how high you should hang your TV on the wall is very important.
Cause I used my Roku Ultra Player as my signal source, I hung it on the wall between the two TVs so I could shorten my cables.
Step 3: Connect the two TVs to a signal source (I connected my LG OLED C2 to my Roky Ultra as I want to watch my TV shows on it). After that, I plugged in an HDMI splitter to the Roku Player using the HDMI Out port.
Step 4: Now, connect each cable to the two TVs and set it up to the appropriate HDMI input.
Step 5: Once you are done, the Roku Player should stream the content on both TVs connected to it using the HDMI splitter.
This is a perfect setup you should try yourself. If you are into video games, you can easily hook up a gaming console to one of your TVs while enjoying your favourite TV shows on the other one.
I play video games sometimes so I hooked up my PlayStation 5 to one of my TVs. As a result, I could play through Elden Ring while my partner enjoyed her favourite Stranger Things episodes on Netflix.
Some issues You might Find:
Remote Control Not Working
The first one is that the remote controls sometimes do not work. To fix it, I use the Roku remote control and turn it into a single media centre for both TVs. If you use two TVs from two different brands, I recommend you use the remote included with your streaming device.
Delay in Audio
Another problem you may experience is the delay in the audio. If you have two TVs set up in the same room, you may notice a slight delay between the two. To fix it, try muting one TV and using the other for sound. If the problem still persists, consider using an external speaker. I tried connecting my Roku Player to a Sony soundbar placed under my TVs and the problem was fixed.
The Bottom Line
Setting up two TVs is now easier if you know what to do. To make my setup work, you will need some extra cash on an HDMI splitter and a wall mount, but it’s totally worth it. Think of all the mind-blowing movie watching and game playing experiences you could manage to get if you had two 4K OLED TVs in your living instead of a single 42 inch TV!
