Default HDMI

This is sort of off topic, I have a 46'' Sony LCD.. It only has 1 set of jacks for an HDMI plug in. I currently just upgraded to an HD Satellite. So I'm wondering, is there any type of plugs I can get or an adapter, that will allow me to have 2 HDMI jacks in my TV, I'm kind of wondering because I have the satellite I wish to hook up, and also I have a X360, and in the works a PS3.

Maybe there is something I can get that will just add on to the back of the TV and change my 7 video channels into some other HDMI capable ones.

Awesome man, I didn't think Switch Boxes came with remotes.. I was gonna be pissed if I had to walk up and switch em, or change the plugs for either! Thanks man.

Default HDMI switch will solve your problem

Pretty common problem and I had same issue. I have a Pansonic LCD with only 1 HDMI input and wanted to connect 3 HDMI sources: cable DVR, PS3 and a PC vid card.

I ended up using a peripheral HDMI switch . It has 5 HDMI inputs and allows 5 HDMI sources to connect to it and sends the one you select to the HDTV.

I tried a HDMI splitter cable, and some other HDMi switches, but they did not work.

Good luck.
