I have a generic rotary RGB switch that I was going to use to switch between my HiPix and the MyHd cards. (My Sharpvision has a RGBHV port so I don't need a transcoder)


The picture for each card looks OK using this switch but I don't know what, if any, resolution restrictions this switch has. My question is - do I need to worry about the switch not providing enough resolution if visually I don't notice any difference with it?


I had picked up a Belkin Omniview SOHO series switch that I know can handle to resolution, but it needs an external power supply to switch manually. I didn't want to run a power supply to the switch if I didn't need to.


Are there any better options?

One other question, is there any problem butting the switchbox next to the set? I didn't know if there are any inteference issues.

I've been looking into this as well. Most manual switches are only rated for the bandwidth of 800x600 and even then start exhibiting some ghosting. Belkin's E series is a cheaper alternative to the SOHO and should work just as well.

The nice thing about the Belkin SOHO series is that it switches analog audio as well as RGB. I am satisfied with the performance of the 4 port model I am using right now to feed my DTC-100 and Hipix HTPC into a transcoder. I will be adding the MyHD card to the mix soon.

I really wish the switchers would do analog switching on the audio so the user could use either digital or standard audio.
