    Hi,

    It looks like I'm going to buy the PF329830 with only one HDMI socket, what happens in a few years when I have my DVD player, SKY HD and a games machine needing to be connected via HDMI?

    Is there some kind of hub? Will it loose quality? Is that price I pay for buying early? I suppose most televisions only had one scart socket when they first came out.



    Thanks

    I thought the Philips had 1 HDMI and 1 DVI as well.

    Gefen do HDMI switchers, and I'm sure there will be more available when all these sources come on line. Supply will equal demand after a short delay. There are several suppliers who advertise on these forums who sell useful stuff like this.

    What will probably happen in the future is that DVD players, STB's etc will feature two hdmi connectors, one a input and one an output. This will allow a daisy chaining of components, as it is digital there should be no degradation in quality.
