Quick question for showing the SWITCH on a tv.

Ive ran out of HDMI's on my tv, as the SWITCH only shows in 720p on a tv (?), can you use something like this cable to use the SWITCH via the component input?

I didnt want a switch as all the hdmi inputs are 4K, so it makes me buy a 4K switch for a 720 image and adds expence.

Im looking at buying a 4K tv which only had 3 inputs, and i have Skyq, Xbox S & PS4 pro. so all my hdmi inputs are took up with 4K sources

I put the switch into the xbox S hdmi input the other day, actually works ok, but i feel a slight bit of lag. which puts me off a bit.

This one is only £25 and switches 4k inputs?

Just noticed what you said in your post.
Nintendo Switch shows at 720p on its own screen and a maximum of 1080p on a TV screen.

I bought a switcher off Amazon for a mate and it auto switches between the 3 inputs depending on what is powered on and off and reverts to other sources when one is switched off. It was only a few quid and works great. I don't know if it would work with 4K or not but it works with XB1, PS4 and Switch all on one input.
