I'm wondering if anyone can recommend any reputable 4 port HDMI switches. I tried out a no-name brand 2 port switch from Best Buy (only one I could find locally), and it was defective, so it looks like mail order is my only option right now. These things aren't cheap and I want to make sure I don't get stuck with another lemon and have to deal with restocking/returns, etc. There's a lot of brands on the web, none of which are familiar. I don't have a receiver yet, but run HD DirectTV and a DVD player to my LCD, and have to swap cables each time I want to switch from one to another. Thanks in advance!

Monoprice gets a lot of positive notices on other forums.

You could also just use component video for the DirecTV.
