    Well, after much deliberation over the last couple of years I reckon I'm finally going to get Sky HD. At the moment I've got a CRT and an HD Ready projector, so I'm planning on using SCART to the TV and HDMI to the PJ. I've currently got a Panasonic EX75 DVD player connected, so I need a 2-in/1-out HDMI combiner and wondered if anybody had any recommendations? I'm sure that at some point in the future I'll get an HD TV, so I wondered is it worth getting a 2-in/2-out box now, or is it worth saving the £££ now and adding a 1-in/2-out box when I need it (I would only be watching 1 display at a time, so hopefully I won't need to spend too much).

    Also, can anybody recommend an optical combiner for the audio as my amp's a 10m run from where the Sky box will go, and there's no room for any more cables!

    Many thanks!

    Try seraching for HDMI (and Optical) switch (this is what you're describing I think), they've been mentioned on here a few times before. Prices range from £10 to £100+ IIRC :smashin:
