Can I split a HDMI signal to use on two displays?

I have a dual monitor setup on my PC; one monitor connected with DVI and the other HDMI.

I want to hook up my HDTV as well so I can stream video to it.

I purchased an HDMI splitter but when I use it, I get no HDMI video either on my monitor or TV.

As it stands, I have to disconnect my monitor and plug in the HDMI cable going to the TV.

In addition, the HDMI connection to the TV does not seem to carry audio. Is that because I purchased a standard HDMI cable (instead of the more costly ones that advertise they carry ethernet, etc) for that connection, or because my PC signal is not carrying audio (I have a year-old HP 64bit Windows 7 rig)?

Thanks
