    I recently purchased a 42" Hitachi PD 5300 plasma screen (the one with the seperate connection box to hide wires)

    The thing is, is that it only has 1 24 pin DVI connection, and the seperate av unit that all the components plug into uses it to connect to the panel. I am looking at buying another component (xbox 360) that uses this DVI connection. I want to be able to use the DVI capablity to connect it. Is there anyway of making 1 DVI input, 2. With some kind of splitter. The only things I seem to be able to find are splitters that split 1 source feed into many. I want to be able to get multiple source feeds into 1.

    Alternatively, I would use component. But again, it only has 1 component input and my dvd player is using this. Is there a way of plugging in multiple component sources (without unplugging something everytime I want to change source), again with some sort of splitter.

    Sorry if I haven't explained this very well, I'm relatively new to all this and a bit out of my league.
