    Newb here. I just bought a home with a very nice media room. The previous owner left an HP vp 6320 projector which seems to be in working condition. It is mounted into the ceiling and an S Video cable is run over the ceiling and down the wall. I would like to try hooking up a few things to it. I have seen some switch boxes that are similar to what I think I need but not quite.
    Is there a switch of some kind that can take advantage of the S Video to the projector and allow other devices to connect with either component or HDMI cables?

    A box which switches multiple Input types would be a Video Processor - either a dedicated box by the likes of DVDO or Lumagen or there are many AVR's with the ability to Input Composite and S-Video along with Component video and Output everything as Component video.
