Both my HTPC and Momitsu 880 need to be connected to my HS10 via DVI. What is the most economical way to switch betw 2 DVI sources? All my equipment is together so I don't need cables longer than about 6'-8'.


Thanks in advance

Unfortunately Xander, I think your options stink. It is a rather spendy solution to the tune of $250+ just to be able to have a simple switchbox. I think the leading and phaps only product for you right now is flwg:

And I think I read someone else say in this Forum a few days ago that Gefen will be releasing a new 4-plug switcher (rather than 2) in the next week or two. You should probably buy that one since if you can fill 2 now, needing 3+ has to be just around the corner.


I will also need something like this very shortly to connect a to-arrive SA 3250HD cable box along with my HTPC.


This is very much an infant technology need so there will probably be a number of options available in the next year or so. For now, its a thin choice. What justifies the price if anything does is the high speed passthru / bandwidth needed and phaps also the initial recovery of development costs, as the market for these probably hasn't hit a critical mass quite yet.
