    Seems like all the consumer recievers I'm pricing only have 2 component video inputs for switching purposes. I would love to find one with 3 in the event that I can get HDTV through the cable company (the other two for DVD/game system). Not looking to spend big bucks, just hoping to find something off the Best Buy/Suckit City racks that "goes to 11"

    The Lexicon MC-12 prepro has four component video inputs (three RCA and one BNC). 'Doesn't fit your other criteria, though [​IMG]

    Bryston has a component video switcher box that is often used with their SP-1.7 prepro. It may be more in your price range...

    Unfortunatly there are very few recievers with more than 2 component inputs. I wish it were otherwise but what can you do.

    There are a number of component video switching options. Personally I just used a cheap mechanical A/V switchbox. It seemed to work well for 480P from my Gamecube and DVD player but I would be a little nervous using one for switching a true HD signal, especially if you have a big TV.

    The Marantz 9300 has 4 sets of component inputs but I definitely would not call it a cheap.

    If I remember right the NAD T762 does have 3 Component inputs running about $1040 from Authorized Dealers. Good luck.

    The H/K AVR-8000 has three, if memory serves. However, it is discontinued and only available as B-stock or used. It is a good receiver though.
