HDMI switcher


Hdmi-Switch-3Port-3DWe have decided to replace our Toshiba DVD Recorder with TiVo with a Intel Core Duo Mac mini.  We don't have a video source connected to it, so it is only used for playing DVDs and listening to our music collection.


I want to connect the Mac mini to our TV though DVI, but our TV only has one HDMI connection.  So a while ago, I saw this post  that mentioned a 2-port HDMI switcher, for less than $100.  Unfortunately, it looks like this has been discontinued.


I then did another search, and I found the Octavia 2-port HDMI switch.  It has discrete codes for switching the inputs, so it should be really easy to integrate this with my Harmony 880.
