    Thought I'd pass this along as I had searched high and low for such a device, and now it sits happily in my entertainment center.

    Works great. I've got my media PC and my AppleTV tied to a single HDMI input on the TV and a single, optical TOSLINK input on my receiver. Added the switch's IR code to my universal remote macro and so no extra steps in swiching from PC to AppleTV.

    Good stuff.

    Excellent product considering my new receiver doesn't have HDMI. It has plenty of optical and digital audio ports though so I wonder if there is a version that's just an HDMI switcher for when I actually buy equipment with those inputs. ... looks like they do depending on how many you need. Here's the 3-port for example.

    By the way Blake, excellent TV and setup ... not to mention you actually still have a DreamCast!

    I was looking for a similar device and found this. You can customize the display on the front to whatever input you are using and its got an IR sensor that I programed my Harmony remote to use.
