Most people have a number of "non-video" sources... I bet you do too?
If you have a CAV6.6 with six sources and on is a CD player, one is XM radio and one is AM/FM radio, then you really only have 3 video sources and will have one source input left over on the 4x4 model.
The 8x8 switch will work with systems that have more than one CAV/CAM controller and the 7th & 8th zones will match up with zones 1 & 2 on the second controller.
Remember that the VM1 switches can be controller via RS-232 so if connected to an external controller you could manipulate the extra inputs & outputs that way too.
