Be gentle with me !!

If I want to input the following

V+ box -HDMI
Xbox 360 -HDMI
DVD - HDMI
Media Center -HDMI
Wii - composite (or possibly component with new cable)
VCR - svideo
TiVo - component (with a scart to component convertor)
TiVo2 - component (with a scart to component convertor)

is this possible ?

There only seems to be dvd/vcr/cbl/game/aux that select video sources.

TIA

You can assign component and HDMI inputs to seven selections on the 606:

DVD
VCR/DVR
CBL/SAT
GAME/TV
AUX
TAPE
CD

You can also assign more than one input to the above selections, with svideo and composite already being preassigned), so in fact you could have upto four devices on each selection (one HDMI, one component, one svideo, and one composite). It works because signals take priority in the following order, HDMI, component, Svideo, composite. So you just have to make sure you have the right combination of devices on or off. With this trick you can actually get upto 15 video sources connected (4 HDMI, 2 component, 4 svideo, and 5 composite). Just so you know audio, works in a similar fashion, with HDMI, optical/coax and stereo RCA taking priority (highest to lowest).

One problem you will run into if you want to use the Wii component cable, is that the 606, only has two component inputs, which you will already have filled with your Tivo's.

Thanks for the help.

The only thing that might stop the priority selection is that quite a lot of the sources would be on constantly then, so I need to work out a schedule !!
