    Hi Guys,

    I've recently bought a 32LD7200 and I can now start using component cables.

    I've got myself a profigold component cable for my DVD player and also a PS2 component cable. I don't want to keep pulling cables out of the back of the TV so I want an inexpensive switcher.

    I've just ordered this one for £15 :

    I was wondering though will I lose any quality going through this switcher?

    The profigold cable isn't a cheap one so I don't want the quality of the cable to be cancelled out by a box in the middle.

    TBH the switch you linked to does look cheap, and I would therefore think that any benefit of good quality cables will be lost with this. All I can really suggest is that you try it and see if the PQ is good enough for you.
    If you find the PQ is not good enough then I would recommend you get one of These as it will not reduce the PQ too much. At £55 it is a fair birt more than the other switch, but IMO you do get what you pay for.

    Mark.

    Thanks for the reply. The £15 switcher came on saturday and to be honest I can't notice any change to the picture quality. DVDs still look razor sharp so I'm happy.
