    I have a PS2, Gamecube, and XBOX, so I think I solved one of the problems I have been comtemplating for efficient game audio/video switching.
    My plan is to use a regular composite video RCA switch for the component video cables, and use this optical audio switch for the sound. It is partsexpress.com part # 180-980 which is only $19.80. Just a recommendation for anyone who is looking for this kind of setup.

    BYW, Let me know if you know a better solution for under $50.

    I've got one that looks EXACTLY like the Parts Express one and it works fine. I got mine from Circuit City and it was much more expensive than that if memory serves me correctly.

    You can also get them at Target and Best Buy. Best Buy keeps them near the mini disc stuff and the really sh***y audio cables. Sometime you can find a diamond in the garbage, I guess! [​IMG]
