    Hi there,

    I´n wondering how to solve this :

    I´m getting a Philips pf9986 LCD TV wich has 1 DVI input on wich you can also put component in.

    But, i´ve a component DVD player, a component Satelite receiver and a DVI PC. So i wan´t to use the DVI for 3 different input (for now, maybe later even more).

    I think the only way i can solve this problem is a DVI switch (on wich every pin is connected), are these on the market? And maybe with a remote also?
    Do i get problems with performance?

    Regards,

    Toine

    They are available but are not cheap - a brief search of www for "dvi switcher" lists a few at $400-800 for 2>1/3->1 versions. If you do go for one, you need to ensure that it is HDCP compliant and can switch the analogue signal as well as the digital signal.

    i found two of them, from Gefen and from Pacificcable, but they both only switch the digital signal.

    I found a few KVM switches with says they switch both signal (and also keyboard and mouse... :eek: ) but i don't like these very much because they are made pure for PC's and i'm worried about the quality.

    Somebody has an idea?

    Regards,
