    There's a matching audio input for each video input.

    You can then switch the signal being sent to the display as you switch the signal being sent to the speakers.

    Most component video inputs are assignable to match a revelant audio input...

    Most amps with Component inputs also can 'switch' between two inputs, so you can connect (for example) a DVD player and X Box by Component to a display with only one set of component inputs.

    When you select 'DVD' on the amp, it outputs the Component Video Signals of the DVD player connected to it, and plays the DVD Audio accompanying it.

    When you select 'X Box' on the amp, it outputs the component video signals of the X Box connected to it, and plays the Game Audio accompanying it.

    Dimmy :).
