To whom it may concern,   I have the Samsung 8000 series 3D Plasma, the Samsung HT-C6930W 3D Blu-Ray home theater in a box. This receiver has 2 HDMI inputs. I have my Dish Network and DirecTV hooked up to his receiver. Now, I would like to hook up my Zune-HD as well. The only problem is that I used both of my HDMI inputs. So I need a HDMI switcher.   I did some research and there are a lot of HDMI switcher on the market right now. Except I don't know which one will be 1.4 cable. As I don't want to kill my 3D signal. I can't seem to find a product that will for sure work with HDMI 1.4.   Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.   Thank you for your help in advance.

HDMI is so new, you may need to contact the companies and ask them.


You have Dish Network AND DirecTv?

What does one have that the other doesn't, that makes it worth having both?

Samsung HL61A750 (LED DLP)            Onkyo TX-SR805
Oppo BDP-83 Blu ray                                  Polk Audio LSi9
Polk Audio LSiC                                  Sony SS-MB100H
SVS PC12-NSD (Sub)                       ...

Why not hook up one of your sat boxes directly to the TV via HDMI and use an optical connection to the HTiB?  You won't lose any sound quality.

Ed, I have been with Dish forever. Love their new 922. I signed up for Direct because of their 3D offering for the World Cup. And they right now have quite a bit of 3D content.

Dave, thought about that to. But everything runs through the inside of my wall. I don't want to open it up again to run another cable. I'll just have to test a few HDMI switchers and see what works.

Thanks for your input
