DVI switching - can it be done with a component?

    Here's a question that I've run into that nobody seems to know about: how do you switch more than one DVI feed?

    For example, the Sammy 61" DLP has a single DVI input. The Sammy HDTV Satellite Receiver has a single DVI output. The new Sammy DVD player(s) have a single DVI output. Which receiver/other device can and should be used to connect all three?

    I thought this topic needed its own thread.

    There are some KVM (Keyboard Video Mouse) switchboxes that have DVI for the video. I suppose you could use one of those until receivers start including DVI connections (which could be a while). Also, I imagine someone will make an autosensing box for just this purpose, like they have for component video (if they haven't already).

    I think some of the new Sony ES receivers have DVI switching but they will not be out till the fall.
