    Hey all,

    I have a new toshiba HDTV, and I want to connect everything to it via COMPONENT cables, but Im running out of slots. Is there a such thing as a component cable switch box, so I can hook PS2 and XBOX to this, and only need to use 1 slot in the tv, then the other slot can be used for DVD only.

    Any information is appreciated! Thanks!!

    thanks for leading me in the right direction!
    seems like this model is the one to beat. Most people were mentioning ones for 400-900.00. Hell no!! But this model, is only 70 bucks! Check it out!

    AWESOME! Thanks, especially since I'll be getting either an XBox or GCN with the component cables. I only have 2 component inputs on my TV so if I get an HD receiver I'm SOL.
