    One DTronics DS-41R 4x1 DVI switch (sold by Pacific Cable and others) with HDCP support. It's only a few months old and in great condition. Includes IR remote and power supply. It also has a serial port for automation; I have Girder files that I use to handle this, and I'll throw in a null modem cable if you want one. Retail is about $400; asking $300 + S&H or best offer, PayPal or money orders preferred.

    Like just about every DVI switch on the market, this switch has some quirks. Here's the two that I've found:

    - It does not like the remote codes from my Panasonic RP-82 DVD player. I covered the IR receiver and used serial control to work around this. It has no problem with Tivo codes though.

    - My HD DirecTivo (HR10-250)/Sanyo Z2 projector combo does not see HDCP as enabled when the signal is routed through the DS-41R. However, the DS-41R did pass HDCP with my old Sony DirecTV receiver; since the HR10-250 and PLV-Z2 are both notoriously finnicky about HDCP, I'm not sure that the DS-41R is entirely at fault.

    It's gotta go... $275 + S&H. Don't forget, it looks much better on the shelf than the Gefen since the cables come out the back!

    Brian: sent message to both emails and PM through HTF. Let me know? I'll be leaving town on Sunday and be out of pocket through Friday.
