HDMI Switch

I am looking for a HDMI box to hook up all my hd goodies. I have a ps3, hd tv , Hd player, Xbox 360. Does anyone know of a place to pick one up that wont cost me a small fortune but give me good quality.

Monoprice, no other choice needed.

I have that very box and it works great. The PS3 is a little tricky though, for some reason the only slot I don't have problems with on the PS3 is the fifth one.

BTW, the switch works seamlessly with Harmony remotes. It's almost like you don't even have a switch.

I had a problem with the PS3 on my switch box, but talked to monoprice, and they sent another that worked fine. They are the only way to go.

I also use a Monoprice 5X switcher. Also using a Harmony for a seamless piece. After in stalling and adding to the Harmony, wife and kids never knew the difference.

Got mine feeding a HD70 projector, sources:

Old Motorola Voom box for OTA HD
V. Inc upconverting DVD player
PS3

So how does this work exactly? I can connect this to my TV, then I can connect a PS3 and an HD DVD player to this switch? Is there any loss in quality? Are there any downsides to this thing?

yes, you connect it to your TV, and connect your components to your switch.

I'm using mine with an Xbox Elite and a DVR cable box, and it works flawless. I have it plugged to a projector.
