The above image is a general picture of my main components in my HT setup. I currently only have a single cable so when I switch to the XBOX or play a DVD on the receiver, I have to swap cables back and forth. It's time to change that!
My TV has 2 HDMI and 2 Component Inputs available. I need to send video to the TV from the XBOX (for games), the AT&T STB (for TV), and the LG Receiver (for movies... although the XBOX can do it just as well so this isn't entirely critical). All audio will be handled via TOSlink. I currently own 1 HDMI and 1 Component cable. I need to buy either 1 HDMI or 1 Component cable.
What I need to know is what cable should I buy and what system should get what cable. What I'm thinking is I buy another HDMI and run both the XBOX and the AT&T STB via HDMI (this way I can provide the absolute best quality for gaming and TV). I will then use the Component for the AVR and decide which displays DVD's the best between the HDMI XBOX and the Component AVR. How does that sound?
