    Is there an economical way to do it? I know that there are two channel switches that can be used, but that would require a lot of cable and at least three switches. Is there any other good way or does somebody at least make a 6-channel switch?

    Shawn Fogg makes a 6 channel unit with some other options:

    economical, not really (225US) plus cables.

    Thanks!
    Yeah, looks great, but for 225-, probably not.

    Radio Shack sells a/v switchers that work very well for this application. Go to their website and search for part #15-1952. You will need two units ($15 each) plus cables.

    I am using these switchers and cannot notice any audible difference with or without them in the signal path. They are mechanical (not electronic) switchers, so they should not affect the audio signal.
