Hello and thank you for using JustAnswer. This is an independent, fee-based technical support site.

My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you now.

What exactly do you mean by "split"? Put more specifically, an HDMI connection is a digital video connection. It's not like an antenna or basic cable feed. So, even if you could or did split an HDMI signal, you would simply see the same video and audio at both the outputs of the split.

I have 1 HDMI outlet on my Foxtel Box. I want to watch the same program on both TVs. At the moment I can only watch same program on each TV by removing HDMI cable from Foxtel Box and plugging in the second TV then first TV doesn 't obviously receive anything

I don't need to phone

Unless getting an extra cable box will be quite costly for you, I wouldn't recommend going the route of trying to split the cable. This is especially true if your TV's are different sizes and run in different default resolutions. If you really feel the splitter is the only way you can go, then you'll need to get a good one, because there are issues of resolution and HDCP with HDMI that fail with many of the lower cost "splitters" out there. Here is a splitter and combined switch that is well reviewed for this task.
