    I've a Sony HS10. I've a HTPC, and was planning on using that to network to the 'net, play MAME games, and install a WinTV card, I can connect by DVI.

    I also have just bought a Yamakawa DVD player with scaled DVI output. I figured the functionality of this beats using the HTPC as a dvd player - BUT, that's got a dvi output too. Is there a simple and cheap work round for this? Ideally, I'd like a box with 2 dvi inputs and a switchable output.

    It's my fault, I had assumed the pj had a DVI input and a 15pin Dsub connector, but it hasn't. Any ideas? Or should I just sell the Yamakawa and use the HTPC for everything?

    TIA

    Andy

    You can get a DVI switch but they are pretty expensive for what they are.

    This chap on eBay is a good source...he is cheap and reliable:

    He offers both the Dtronics model

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=73387&item=5771564360&rd=1&ssPageName=WD2V

    and the Gefen version

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=73390&item=5771564730&rd=1&ssPageName=WD2V

    or if your not bothered about HDCP then he offers this cheaper model also

    Cheers, Lee

    I have the first one Lee links to above and it is an excellent piece of kit and works like a charm. Highly recommended.
