I highly recommend the tri link switch! A good few of us on AVF have this specific one and not heard one complaint about it yet. I bought mine for £30, but as you can see by the above link they are already a lot lower in price...and believe me I couldnt believe my luck when I bought it for £30, it is absolutely brilliant, it just does the job...and it comes with it's own little cute remote :thumbsup:

would the lead that came with the ps3 to connect to the tv be as good as hdmi ?

My tv only supports 1080i

No.. it'll be the same quality on as many displays as you split it to (one of the features of digital transmission).

My advice would be to get the official vga cable for the 360. Vga gives an excellent picture, and then you can use hdmi for the ps3. Sorted :smashin:

Bare in mind that the Joytech Tri Link switcher does not come with an HDMI cable. If you're currently using one HDMI cable and switching it between the two consoles you will need to buy two more HDMI cables in order to use the switch. Having said that if you look around you can buy HDMI cables pretty cheap online.

Regards the comparision between VGA and HDMI on the 360 there is no siginificant difference between the two although in my opinion it does exist in favour of HDMI. However on the one hand it will depend on your particulat TV and on the other it can also be subjective. Having said that VGA is a very good alternative for HDMI although it will only give you video and not sound.
