Using a pro series sharp which only has one hdmi. I want to connect cable box, and PC. I also need sound from PC to TV so I was planning on using HDMI from PC to TV or some device in the middle. I need 1080P. Any suggestions on how to do this?

Multiple-input HDMI switches are readily available. A Web search will locate more than you can take the time to consider. Monoprice is considered one of the better, cost-effective suppliers.

An HDMI Switch which also caters for VGA+Audio and YUV+Audio is one option.

You will want to set the PC Output to 1080p60 as there is no video ‘scaling’ going on within the Switch!
