HDMI Distribution Box

I have three TVs (non-smart) in my 2019 FW 24BL, each TV has 2 HDMI inputs. I am using my phone to watch DirecTV and a "smart" DVD player (via phone hotspot) to watch Amazon Prime. The cabinet above the fridge is where the DVD player and one HDMI cable for each interior TV are located; I also place my phone in there so I can connect it to either of the HDMI cables when I want to watch DirecTV. Needless to say it a cable clutter and an inconvenience.

I am looking for a switcher box (preferably with push buttons) to avoid having to unplug and change HDMI cables. I seen on the Thor site that the 2021 has some HDMI Video Distribution Box as standard equipment but could find a photo, let alone any information on it.

I am wondering if anybody around here actually has such a device and can provide some feedback and make/model information.

Thanks and stay safe!

This is not the same brand as ours, but same general layout and remote.

I currently have a Connex full matrix HDMI switch which operates by remote.

Whatever you do buy a full matrix. Full matrix allows watching different things on different TVs at the same time.

On our prior rig (Challenger) the switch was not full matrix so you could not watch a DVD on one TV and play an xbox on another at the same time if they were routed through the switch.

In the photo the switch is the middle box with multiple lights illuminated.
