    Looking for some help in finding a switcher that will allow me to choose between 2 monitors via component. I have a 1080i lcd in the living room and would like an lcd elsewhere for the kids to play when I am watching tv (or Vise versa). I can then send the component signal over cat5 to whatever room i choose; is there such a device?

    Thanks

    Les.

    Don't forget the sound, you can get component switch boxes with two outputs, just depends how far you're going and how much space to hide wires there is.
