I have an Onkyo SR 701 receiver that supports only two RGB sources. Currently Ive connected a scientific Atlanta Cable box to one and a JVC DVD player to the other. I also have a SONY CX985V 400 DVD/CD disk player that I've connected to an S-Video input. It all works together just fine, but it occurred to me that the 400 disk player is extremely space efficient and doesnt cost that much more than decent quality DVD storage units. So I am thinking about getting additional units. what I've thought about doing was to interconnect multiple DVD RGB outputs using ordinary TV splitters (bridges, one for R, one for G, one for B and one for digital audio. Assuming only one DVD player is on at a time (remaining units in stand-by), it seems as though they could share a single set of receiver inputs that way. If a second DVD player was accidently turned on, i would think there would be serious interference, but I dont think any damage would occur. Was wondering if anyone has tried this kind of connection, and also would be interested to hear about alternative solutions. Thanks in advance for your inputs.
