If you’re like me, your PC/Home Theatre/Entertainment convergence is occuring at an ever-increasing rate. Mine so much so that I’m desperately short on inputs/outputs in my current equipment:
- Grundig Elegance MFW 70-3201 Television
- Yamaha DVX-S60 Home Theater
- Topfield TF-4000T Digital Set Top Box
- Foxtel Digital Satellite TV Box
- Sony PlayStation 2
- Teac VCR (not currently connected)
I’m also planning to add a D-Link DSM-320 around Christmas if there’s spare dollars around.
So, to cut a long story short, I picked up a Joytech AV-240 switch yesterday.
These babies are the duck’s nuts of AV switches, having:
- Signal Regulator Technology to ensure picture is pin sharp
- Programmable display allowing you to customise the name of each input
- Remote control for simple nav of all your equipment
- 7 composite video and stereo audio inputs
- 7 S-video inputs
- 6 component inputs
- 4 optical inputs
- 3 ethernet inputs
- Single output for each of the above inputs
This should solve a wealth of issues and make a bunch of inputs available when I do the rewiring over the weekend. It should even free up some inputs on the theater system so I can wire in that D-Link box.
