I have my HTPC and a HDTV Sat receiver that both have DVI outputs on them. Is there anywhere to buy a DVI A/B switch or anywhere I can get the female connectors and I will make one myself.


Thanks

I found a few but they are several hundred dollars. :(

Only one that I am aware of is Geffen's Extend-it, $300 for a 2 way splitter.


Your best bet is to wait for HDMI. The standards are in place, and it won't be long before switchers and/or A/V receivers will offer this input.


Unless you need something right now. Then you are stuck. With HDMI just around the corner, I don't think many manufacturers will devote much R&D into DVI inputs.

Here is the page with Gefen's DVI KVM products. All of them indicate DVI-HDCP support.

HDMI is basically DVI-HDCP plus multichannel audio on one cable. I suppose it will have a different connector as well. For what it's worth, Samsung indicates that their DVI-HDCP inputs on their DLP displays are compatible with HDMI.


Here is a Lindy DVI KVM switch, although it does not indicate HDCP support.

I am planning to wait for DVI or HDMI support to be added to stereo equipment.
