Default How to hook up two HDMI devices to one HDMI Input

Is there a cure for this? My TV has only one HDMI input but to get my upconvert DVD player to work properly, I need to use an HDMI cable.
What options do I have?
Will a HDMI splitter work?

Yes I use a two channel switcher without any ill effects. Work perfectly. Can be had at any Circuit City or Best Buy.

Just wanted to add, its switcher not splitter. I am sure that is what you meant but just wanted to point that out. Not to sure there are HDMI splitters out there anyways.

Do they have any models of HDMI switchers where you don't have to actually hit a button, either remote control or auto sensing switch.

Absolutely.. And some can be added to learning remotes like Harmony and so forth. Here is 1 from mono with remote.

Yes, I did mean switcher not splitter. What would a splitter be used for? I googled it and saw several "splitters." I purchased a switcher from computergeeks for $50. It had a remote.

A splitter is used to send a single signal to more than one monitor (the opposite of a switch).

Another good one, very small. Comes with an IR sensor you can extend on a cable so you can hide it in a cabinet, etc.
