    Default Decent cheap HDMI switcher?


    I've been poking around eBay for a decent HDMI switcher. Doesn't have to be the best, but it needs to work. My current TV only has one HDMI port, and I need a switcher for my PS3, and my A-3 so I don't have to keep switching the cable back and forth manually.

    Any help?

    the 3 port is no longer available. I know they have a 4 in/2 out switcher w/remote for like $90 @ monoprice.

    Oh I didn't see it had a remote in the title...I noticed it in the description but thought the description might have been wrong. Good to know! Does anyone know if these work with Logitech Harmony remotes?

    I take it you would recommend that one?

    I'm also curious to know if it will work with the Logitech Harmony remote. I plan on picking up the 880 on Amazon for $150.

    NO WAY...I just got 2 880's last week for $100 a piece. They're refurbed but it's Amazon selling them so you can trust 'em. I love mine!!! It's well worth the $100!!!! No freakin' way, I was gonna put the link in this post but I guess Amazon ran out of the refurbed ones...oh well. It's still worth $150 easy.

    Damn, I would have bought one for $100 in a heartbeat. I think I'm going to mosey around eBay for a few days to see if I can get one for a lower price. The remote isn't THAT big of a priority to me right now, but I definitely want to pick up an 880 sometime in the not too distant future.

    The monoprice HDMI switchers are VERY good. The codes in them work flawlessly with learning/universal remotes. I have used two of them now on different jobs without issue.

    Cool, I'm going to splurge and buy one then.
