      Hey Guys,

      Now that I have Comcast HDTV, I have three devices trying to share
      two componet inputs on my Panasonic HDTV. Besides purchasing a new
      receiver that has 2 component inputs does anyone know where I can get
      a componet switcher and what the cost on something like that runs (if
      there even is one)

      Thanks

      I have used a manual A/V switch without any noticeable degradation in signal. I m using a belkin 3 position switch. The inputs are labeled video 1,2 and 3.

          The best component switcher i have seen is the Audio
          Authority 1154. It also switches optical audio and
          has an auto senser so you dont have to switch it by
          hand. It retails for $200. You can get one at
          Magnolia Hi-fi in San ramon or Emeryville.

                There'a a Magnolia Hi-Fi next to Valley Fair shopping mall too,
                which might be more convenient depending on where you work.

                Another alternative is the Zektor component switcher:

                http://www.zektor.com/hds4/index.htm

                and another possible supplier for both would be Digital Connection:

                  Wow, that's almost a good deal, how does it handle switching from my
                  component inputs to my svideo inputs. I think it said it handles both with
                  one component input. So it converts the signal from svideo? How does it
                  handle the 480i, 480p, 1080i conversion. The TV has to do that? I know my
                  Sony's don't handle that individually. They have two seperate component
                  inputs for HD vs ED
