Just upgraded to a MySky HD decoder (absolutely brilliant - wish I'd done it years ago!) and opted to plug it into my old Bravia's single HDMI port. This renders useless my WD media player, which we use constantly, and which was previously connected to the HDMI port.
(I'm aware I could use some of the player's other ports: Optical, Audio, Y-Pb-Pr, but I'd prefer not to, unless it's unavoidable)
Which brings me to my question: Are HDMI switches any good? There's a wide variety of these things available, especially on TradeMe, but I'd prefer to first ask you guys if there are any fishooks in the plan. Like, if these switches are OK, are some makes better than others? I only need a 2-to-1 but I guess it wouldn't hurt to have a 3,4 or 5-to-1. I also note that some offer remote controls.
Thanks for reading this :-)
