I was asked to help setup some TVs for a small restaurant. I wouldn't be doing the actual install of the physical TVs but was asked to figure out the best way to control the TVs. There will be 6 TVs spread across the restaurant.

I was asked for a couple things: That each TV be able to play it's own "unique" media and that any number of the TVs could be set to view the same channel/input(ie Channel 200 on a Reciever, or a DVD on a DVD player).

What are the best solutions for something like this? I know that places like Applebees and Buffalo Wild Wings have "sophisticated" racks that they use to control all the channels on all the TVs from, but for something this scale I don't think it needs to be that "sophisticated". I know that some of the newer smart TVs can also receive signal by Ethernet, but we will most likely go with HDMI for this Application.

Thank you for the help!
