I'm looking for an A/V matrix switch with 8 sources and 10 zones. I'm leaning to the Audio Authority HLX in spite of, or perhaps because, it's component, not HDMI. I want it to just work once it's set up without the hassles that HDMI still seems to give today. I also like the expandability and potential to add a fully matrixed audio to the video.
My question is - Has anyone actually set up an HLX with a DIY control system? (Irule, Cinemar, others) If you have, any recommendations?
