    Hi,

    New to the forum, I am a C45 quadriplegic (paralyzed from the chest down) from a spinal cord injury. I spend six out of seven days in bed. My present set up includes a Samsung (two HDMI)MU 6300, mounted on the ceiling above my bed.

    I'm presently using both HDMI's ports, one for the cable box, and the other for my iMac.

    I recently discovered a new product, http://www.quadstick.com/shop/quadstick-fps-game-controller which will allow me to use a standard game platform for gaming.

    My issue is I'm not familiar with modern game platforms. I would like to be able to utilize a game platform (preferably playscape 4) with my current set up. How would I best be able to hook up to the Samsung? If HDMI is my only option, how could I go about having three HDMI's going to only two ports?

    I appreciate any help/suggestions. My ultimate goal would be to operate independently my cable, my PC, and gaming source independently, preferably through voice control (Amazon Alexa, fire cube, harmony etc.).

    Thanks in advance!
    Mike

    Hi Mike! Not sure we will be much help here. Thinking about it, can you add either an HDMI switcher or a receiver? Adding a cheap receiver would allow you to easily swap between 4-5 HDMI sources.

    Did you see the new Xbox accessibility controller? That might be a good option for gaming access, and I bet they will have blurary/UHD control in there too.

    The Logitech Harmony Elite remote has a hub that integrates with Alexa and should let you control a lot of stuff by voice command.
