Need help with AV switchbox selection
posted by bodgy to technology (3 answers total)
I am setting up a game room with several consoles new and old.
At present my TV has enough HDMI inputs (360 and PS3 only) but for component inputs (PS2, X-Box), for standard RCA inputs (Nintendos and PS1, etc) and even coaxial inputs (Atari, Intellivision, Colecovision) I need multiple inputs.
I am hoping to control all of this with a Logitech Harmony remote, so ideally the switchboxes I get should be IR remote cpable.
My problem is I cannot find switchboxes with enough inputs (I am thinking I will need at least 8 RCA inputs), and I am concerned if I get two switchboxes the remotes will be keyed the same so I will not be able to remote control them.
More I cannot find remote control Coax boxes.
Has anyone done something like this and have recommendations for switch boxes for me to purchase?
Thank you for your help!
