So this may get confusing so I hope you can follow :p .
My pc has 1 HDMI Port and I want a dual monitor setup with my xbox also connected to one of the monitors, the problem is both the monitors have 1 HDMI port and the pc also has 1 HDMI port, so i have heard of these splitters but i almost need 2 splitters on in pc and one in one of the monitors which seems like it may not work. So any idea on how i can link 2 monitors to the pc and the xbox also to one of the monitors? thanks in advanced

Make and model monitors? Only 1 HDMI port - no other ports; e.g., dvi or vga?

Same question for computer: GPU and/or motherboard - only 1 HDMI port?

For PC, dual monitors: Duplicate screens, or Extended screen. LIkely the latter, but please confirm.

For the most part I expect that you will need a GPU that provides multiple video ports.

However, there may be some options available - more information needed.
