Vizio TV with one HDMI port

I purchased a Roku Ultra. I have a Visio TV with only one HDMI port on the back which currently our audio is  plugged into. I also purchased a splitter to plug the audio in and the Roku player into. Would this be the correct set-up?

Thanks in advance!

Re: Vizio TV with one HDMI port

No, a splitter is for sending one devices signal to two other devices, not for combining two into one. What you need is a Hdmi Switcher, which has multiple inputs, and 1 or 2 outputs. Usually comes with remote. Look for one the does 4k, so you won't have to replace it later.
