will those "Y" adapters work? trying to hook xbox and ps2 up but only have one set of component jacks on the TV. Could I just buy 3 "Y" adapters so I can hook ps2 and xbox up together?

What I ended up doing was using my Sony switchbox for my four component sources. I just use Red, Blue, and Green into Red, White, and Yellow, and I'm not having any issues thus far.

I might be seeing some picture quality drop offs, but it will work until I pick up the Audio Authority Component switcher.

I remembered reading something about it on AVSforum, and figured it couldn't hurt to try it.

It seems to be working without a hitch. Other than the fact that I hate having to hit the buttons. I'll get that autosensing switch from AudioAuthority sometime in the future.

Same here, with no visible drop-off in video quality. I had to also get an optical cable switcher in order to have my cable, PS2 and Xbox in digital sound. Make sure you get a push-button "passive" switcher rather than an electronic "active" model.
