Does anybody know of a receiver with 2 component outs?? Ideally £500 or less!?
Out of interest, why would you need 2 outs?
I have a lcd tv(connected via component to a dvd player,xbox and gamecube!! using a component switcher) and i am thinking of getting a projector which i would like to connect via component. Therefore i would like to switch between the two displays with out having to yank the cables out each time!! I think if i could get a receiver with 2 component outs it would be the easiest way and would reduce the clutter, and i could do with upgrading my receiver anyway!!
Looks like Denon 2105 does. Have a look at superfi:
sorry dude the denons only got 3 in and 1 out
If you can arrange for one of your output devices to be non-terminating, you can loop through with BNC T-pieces. Have to leave the terminatng device connected at all times, or things would go very wrong for the non-terminating display.
Here is a thread I posted a while ago. I hope it might help you.
In the end I decided the cost didn't justify the result so I have my Panasonic DVD/HDD connected to my LCD TV via scart to view films/recordings. This also is hooked up via component into the amp. Everthing else I leave in the amp and use the PJ which is fine but it is a shame if I want a quick blast on GT4 or something that I have to fire the PJ up.
Sorry, wasn't quite paying enough attention... That'll teach me to try to work and visit the forum at the same time!
I was looking for the same thing when I upgraded my amp. The only one's I've seen have this are the top end Denon & Yamaha.
I tried using 3 phono splitters but I got a kink in the top of the plasma picture if the projector was plugged into the mains. You need to buffer the 2 outputs.
You might be better off going for a 1:5 distribution amplifier like this.
Only £99 and should do the job nicely.
