    My TV has only 2 HDMI outputs & I shall shortly require 3 of these for DVD, Sky & PS3. Ihave no immediate desire to change my TV so wonder if any of you can recommend a switcher box? These seem to vary enormously in price but obviously I'd like one that affects the picture quality minimally.
    Hi Fi would be so simple if the Flat Earthers had been right.

    I have an Octava 3x2 switch which does all you need and has a further HDMI out should you ever decide to get yourself a projetor. I heard that Gefen do them too.

    Nice article as much as one could make it interesting about a boring switch box.

    Try monoprice.com they have a few and you won't beat their prices. They have customer reviews so you can see if others are happy

    Being a digital signal, does the signal actually degrade going through a switcher? You can get a 4 HDMI port manual switcher on the bay for around £30 last time I looked a few months back

    We have been using one for weeks and it is fine.

    The £8.99 price for 4 way splitter is equalled by its P+P but it arrived next day.

    It does the job from PS3/V+ Cable HD etc into Pannie.

    It feels naff, but is black/works(so no-one but me knows it's there)if you hold it with e.g. thumb while pressing alternate buttons.

    I am sure HDMI etc is another rip-off, so just buy cables/etc which do biz IMO.
