    Ok realise a bit of a random title but....

    I'm looking for a 4-1 HDMI switcher with the following requirements.

    4 HDMI inputs which will support. V+, Pioneer 696, 360 Elite & my HTPC (all in sig). Now would preferably like to have 4 way optical switching aswell and it must be compataible with my Harmony 525.

    I thought I had everything i needed in the Thor .http://www.tvcables.co.uk/cgi-bin/tvcables/thor-hdc100-4-way-hdmi-switch.html

    However I now hear that it doesnt work with V+. This would obviously throw a big spanner in the works.

    Can anyone confirm that the Thor will or wont work with V+ and if not can can someone recommend an alternate?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hello simonhippsey

    As Mr THX says the Octava HDS4A-UK will do what you require and works with the Sources you list - including any HDMI v1.3 features your System supports.

    A more expensive option is the Zektor HDMI5 - this unit adds lots of features to the basic switching requirement; including the ability to cross covert Co-axial and Optical Digital audio; see http://www.zektor.com/hdmi5/index.html
