Any recommendation? I currently have 5 HDMI sources...
Dont waste your money on a VP just to hook up your sources. The 600s VP is OK, but you will get a cleaner image direct. I don't go via my 600s or 888s.
In your case a matrix switcher is the way to go
I'll get back to you on specifics. The only problem with matrix switchers is that, above 4x4, they get expensive quickly.
Any idea on a max budget, or dont you care? A 2(or more) output distribution amp may also do the job.
Are all your sources HD?..........(forget the Wii, via component, for now.)
