I know i need a matrix switch, but a 4x4 doesnt seem like it will be enough, and a 8x8 is way to much..any ideas?
Do you use all four cable boxes at the same time to show different programs? If you move them all to a matrix, any TV can watch any of the cable boxes, so you may be able to share them. This usually depends on the number of people in the house.
If you could share cable boxes by moving to a 4x4 matrix, and say reduce to 3 cable boxes, you'd have room for the DVD player on the matrix. This would be a far simpler solution...
