Thanks for the info, where can i find extension cables for the controllers and a adapter or a switching device. Also wouldn't the cables hang down over my seatining are because the pj is behind my seating area and would this be a pain in the ass. Or do u suggest just putting the pj on a table and not worring about all the cables. Thanks
You can get controller extension cords pretty much anywhere. EB, Best Buy, WalMart, etc.
I have 20+ consoles, and using several s-video switch boxes, optical audio switch boxes, and an old rf switch box, I have them all routed through my receiver to the TV. When I get the X1, it'll be wall mounted behind my seating area. I'll relocate the consoles and receiver to the back of the room as well, and will use my controller extension cords to run either along the wall or just under the couch.
I have a bunch of consoles also, but you should consider using emulators. I just use emulators on my HTPC and every console I need is on that little box. Plus you can use MAME to play arcade games and you can't really recreate that unless you happen to have a bunch of arcade units in your house. This saves me trouble of hooking all my consoles up and storing all the games.
