    Have any of you experts out there configured an xbox to be switchable between a projector and a tv without re-wiring all the time?

    Thanks to some help earlier, I have now purchased a HD kit for the xbox. I have a Yamaha AX750 amp with multiple component in, but only one component out. It also has loads of svid in and out.

    Is there a way to actually connect this (and a sky box) to both output devices?
    I can pass through the component signal from the xbox to the projector, and can also pass through the svid signal from the Sky box to both the projector and the TV (The amp will pass an svid signal down the component out, but will not pass through a component signal in to an svid port out).


    The only way I can think of doing it is to have a splitter from the output component set (containing the xbox signal) to feed then into the projector and the TV. The problem with this is that my TV does not have a component in :confused:


    Sorry if I have the wrong forum or it doesnt make clear sense.. been saving up for the projector for ages and now I have it, I cant seem to make sense of connecting it all :(

    any suggestions?

    I've got a similar problem with my system. One way around it is to use the multiple outputs of the various devices, connecting one to the TV and one to the projector.

    eg: DVD player via RGB scart to TV but s-video to projector.

    My XBox AV kit has both composite and s-video on it so I could connect to TV by composite and projector by s-video. However, the composite picture quality is inferior so I usually end up just swapping the s-video between the telly and projector through an extension lead.

    Use a component switch. I have a cable one but you will have to manually flick the switch.

    You can get componenent to RGb scart converter boxes for around £70.
