    I recommend the Keene Scart Commander. Costs about £150, but much better than BT941 in my opinion.

    The HSR looks like a similar product to the BT941. Personally I like the Keene SC as it's tucked away down the back of the rack rather than taking up yet more space. I don't know much about the HSR so can't really comment.

    Hi,

    I use a Freeview box, Xbox & Pioneer DVD all through the Keane Scart Commander. All running RGB and all connect to a Sony Wide screen TV.

    No problems at all with the box. Its nicely hidden away and never gives me any trouble. Freeview is in the first slot, dvd next and xbox last. When watching TV and we want to watch a DVd we simply turn on the dvd and it flicks over to the DVD - same for the xbox. Once we finished watching the dvd we turn off the player and back to freeview. It works well for us.

    I have a Holdan

    The Keene scart commander is the daddy for those who want to route High quality progressive component Video from upto 4 devices to one Plasma/LCD/Monitor.

    But for RGB its over kill

    The Holdan and the BT941 dont need to be tucked away as they look like nice bits of AV kit the KSC is brilliant but basic and ugly looking, I am still getting one though but thats because I need to route multiple component devices

    Err, there are two boxes from lektropacks called trilogy 1 and 2.
    One gives auto 3 selction and the other gives 4. (Only RGB mind you, although they probably do sound)
    They are 60 and 100 pounds I think although I have not used them.
    Just thought I'd mention it.
