Using two HD sources?


Active Member
Hi there, as the new HD revolution is upon us (or nearly) i'm looking at various system setups.

So far i'm looking at an HD LCD ~40" eg sony Bravia V series.

To this i plan on adding the telewest TVDrive to this for HD input and Recording.

Fair enough TVDrive -> HD LCD via HDMI input.

So then what do you do for DVD? There are a few HDMI output DVD's out there, i'm thinking primarily of the samsung ones. (I like all in ones for space and i think samsung seem to be the only people doing all in ones with HDMI). But if you only have 1 HDMI socket do you have to take lesser DVD performance for HDMI TV? Or can you get switchers, allowing you to connect both the cable/DVD boxes to the TV via HDMI?

Or are there systems out there that will let you piggy back, cable TV > HDMI > DVD cinema > HDMI > TV? This would make sense as it would sort out the 5.1 sound for the HD cable broadcasts too.

Any advice welcome :)
