Only 1 HDMI slot on TV

hi, I have connected my Virgin box to my TV using the HDMI cable. I have recently bought a firestick and a HDMI splitter so I can connect both but the Virgin signal is too bad to watch. Any ideas/suggestions please?

Get a decent quality HDMI switch, i've personally been using this one https://www.amazon.co.uk/Kinivo-501BN-5-Port-Wireless-Adapter/dp/B0049SCB2Y and not had any issues, might be worth looking in to

You need an HDMI switch as you'll be using either the TV box or the Fire TV stick. I recommend getting a powered switch. Note that even if the USB cable is included in the package quite often the same cannot be said of the USB plug.
