Default HDMI/Optical Switch or Selector?

Does anyone know of a good HDMI/Optical Selector that is not going to cost me a fortune? Or an Optical switch? My receiver is all out of inputs and I keep adding components. PS3, D*TV, A20 and maybe the XBOX 360 elite. Would it be better to just put my D*TV out on component and run the ps3 and a20 on the two inputs? Then all I would need is a optical switch for now-peferably on a remote.

I like my receivers and don't want to upgrade right now.

I got an awesome Optical splitter for $7 on eBay and an HDMI switch on Amazon for $20. I've had absolutely no problems with either.

You might want to try an optical splitter. They're only about $8 and I've read they work both ways. I have one but I never tried it in that way before. No remote necessary.

Monoprice.com ftw:
I don't have enough posts to give you links, but they have 2x1 w/remote for $30+ship, 2x1 manual for $20+ship, 4x1 for $50+ship, etc.

Just go to monoprice.com, search "HDMI switch", then click on the category "HDMI / DVI switch and converter" to narrow your results.

Search for optical switch there, you'll get similar results.
