    Is there a cheap way to split a component cable to 2 different locations (one to a PC monitor and one to a HDTV)?

    Yep, get one of those composite (red, white & yellow) splitters that are everywhere for TV's.

    I know you didn't ask, but this won't split the sound.

    Really? That won't degrade the HD signal?

    You don't want a splitter, you want a switcher. The composite switches from radio shack work just fine. I use a 4 way switch for different sources to my projector. It works the same way in reverse.

    Sure will. I used that exact one until I had more than 2 component sources.
