Hmmm. Should I get one of these? Or should I make do until I have a new pre/processor or receiver that can switch HDMI? Once I get my PS3, I’ll have two HDMI devices, and only one DVI/HDCP input on my TV. So I’ll have to use a component connection for my PS3 or my SA8300HD PVR. Or both (which is a valid option). But the cool thing about this switcher is that you don’t actually have to push any buttons. It’ll automatically detect an incoming signal on one of its inputs, and switch to it upon detection.
The only problem with thing looks to be the fact that it costs 300 bucks. But Audioholics thinks very highly of this HDMI switcher. They tried to trip up the Radiient switcher in several ways, and it performed flawlessly. The picture quality also suffered no degradation going through the switcher, which is good.
