Hello, I am searching for a component video switch and distribution amplifier (I guess it's called a matrix), that is at least 4x2.

Why component? My 40" 720p LCD is component.

My purpose? I want to switch between my STB, PS3, and WDTV, to go to my Avermedia EzRecorder and TV, so I can schedule PVR recording of the STB whilst playing PS3 or watching WDTV.

I have seen some posts of items, but they are god aweful expensive thousand dollar products. I don't think I'd want to go much over $100 - $150.

I get that I'm being cheap... I work in TV. I just can't warrant spending that kind of money on personal entertainment instead of a professional application.

Currently I use a Dynex Component Video Switcher. The quality is ok, better than one of those non-powered physical switches.

I have seen a few on ebay that are in the $100-150 range.

Has anyone used a rather inexpensive video switcher (matrix) such as this? or Something else to recommend?

The Shinybow stuff is fine. Get that!

I've got the 4x2 matrix from Zektor. It's no longer offered, but it's great (was $500 though).
