    I have a TV with internet capability and my xbox (which I currently plug into the iMac to use internet sharing).

    Is there anyway that I can plug both into my iMac? Would prefer the ability to run both at the same time just so that I don't have to switch anything around. I would just like a neat and tidy solution.

    Would anyone be able to advise me on what I would need?

    what is your internet solution?
    A simple switch might be the course of action.

    Yeah a switch would do it. You'll setup sharing to do Airport to Ethernet. Plug the switch into your Mac's Ethernet port. Then plug your two devices into it. I have THIS one for my HTPC, and it works perfectly.
