    I asked this over in the Hardware forum..but only got one response. I have 3 component video pieces and need a reasonably priced switcher, hopefully with coax/fiber optic audio switching as well. I want at least 4 inputs...thinking towards the future. Changing the wires for each device is becoming...troublesome! Any suggestions?
    Oh...I want something that is MADE FOR component switching...not something to adapt to it.
    Thanks in advance

    I was looking into this recently, there are no cheap options out there aside from the ideas people had with using those $50 Sony switch boxes. I remember that the price tag on the device was around $400 bucks, so I decided to hook up the PS2 via S-Video.
    I'm going to do High Def here soon so I've got to figure it out, someone will jump in an remind me of the site that sells this device. Like I said it ain't cheap, I figured I'd wait for one to get cheaper or just jump onto a new HK or Denon reciever that does it and pick up DPL2 and some new features to upgrade my reciever.

    Not worried so much about "cheap"...but don't want to sign over my next born either. A coupla hundred bucks to spend would be fine.
