    There isn't a proper one yet!

    HDMI Switching is possible, I saw one product at ISE in Brussels in Feb but that was hidden away and not talked about much.

    The problem is the HDCP stops any 'distribution' at the moment.

    The device I saw also did its switching in the analogue domain using two cat5e cables to pass the component signal, audio, power and IR.

    Audio Excellence iirc.

    JOe fernand offers a range of HDMI and DVi switchers do you want multiple source to single display or singal source to multi display? (these are technically not fullmatrix switchers which is what i think vex was reffereing to)

    I'm after multiple HDMI's to one source (min. 2 HDMI sockets required).

    Thanks Horny,

    sdb, one to many or many to one switchers are available, sorry for the confusion. Loads of them at the show in brussels.

    1x2, 1x4 and even 1x8 were spotted.
