    I have only one RGB socket on my TV and would like to connect both Sky & DVD to it (DVD currently connected to AV2 which aint RGB).

    What would you guys recommend out of the following:

    1

    2
    http://www.argos.co.uk/webapp/wcs/s...talogId=2501&productId=103441&clickfrom=image

    3
    http://www.argos.co.uk/webapp/wcs/s...talogId=2501&productId=107064&clickfrom=image

    Opinions will be gratefully received.

    Am I likely to lose any quality when using any of the above as opposed to a direct connection to my TV RGB Scart?

    TIA

    Obviously the 29.99 job is going to be the best because you won't have to keep jumping out of your chair all the time to switch over. Will it deteriorate the picture ? Who knows, but if it does, take it back for a refund :smashin:

    Think I am gonna go for option 3.......would love the £50 suggestion though!

    The only prob is I am gonna how to use the TV sound for the PS2.

    Setup as follows:

    DVD to TV (DVD connected to amp)
    Sky to TV (Sky connected to amp)
    Xbox to Sky (Xbox connected to amp)

    I can't think of another way to do this, no spare inputs on the amp!

    The Zektor HDS4 Component Video + Digital Audio switchers will do everything you require (apart from retaining auto aspect ratio switching if you want to switch analogue audio) without trashing your picture quality.

    Unfortunately there's an additional zero in the SRP over your option A or B – see http://www.zektor.com/hds42/index.htm

    Best regards
