    Component Cable Switch Box?

    Does there exist a switch box for component cables? I ask because my TV only has 2 component inputs and both are being used (DVD player and HD Cable box). Climbing behind the TV and switching the cables back and forth is definately NOT an option. I could just go with s-video for the Wii, but I'd rather not after hearing how it's not quite as nice that way. Any thoughts?

    Radio Shack has many different models of component cables. I think they range from about $10 to $50. The higher end spliter may have amplifiers to boost the signal. Hope that helps.

    Also, your DVD player may have the right ports for it so you can run it through that.

    You can get this Pelican HD System Selector for $20. It includes a universal Component/S-Vid/composite cable and even an Ethernet input. But I don't think the universal cable will work on the Wii but it is still the best deal you can find. You probably can pick this up from EB, Gamestop and Bestbuy too.

    Buy the Pelican HD System Selector (PL970) and other GameCube Cables & Adapters at circuitcity.com

    That pretty much sounds and looks like what I was thinking of. Thanks!
