    Hey guys. I'm looking for a component video switcher. I currently have the Zektor 4.1 (or whatever it is with the 4in 1out). I went to their site the other day, and they don't seem to have anything other than that model and HDMI switchers. I'm looking for a switcher that has more than 4-in. I'm out of room, and I don't really want to "y" the connections into the switcher because I don't know if that will degrade the signal any. I currently have my X360, DVD, PS2, and XBOX hooked to the switcher. The XBOX is currently serving as a temporary media box, but it also has tons of games that I can't find anymore so it will be staying in the setup. I will soon be getting HD cable from my provider and I need the extra input.

    My main questions are: Will putting "y" cables on the inputs of HD signals degrade the signal any? And if so, what is a damn good HD switcher like the Zektor? Thanks.

    Check out www.video-storm.com I've got one of their CSW62 and am really happy with it. It had everything I was looking for, 6 inputs, IR control and no degradation of HD signals.

    I highly recomend it.

    I'm in the market for a 3x1 component video switcher (although I'm not opposed to more inputs/outputs). I was thinking of going with Audio Authority's newest model - 4x1 HDTV Autoselect Switcher with IR Remote - Model 1154B.

    Does anyone know anything about this model or the quality of Audio Authority's products?

    Thanks.
