Advice needed on buying a switcher
by johncpatterson - 12/27/05 3:48 PM
I have three questions:
1. It seems like out of all of the switchers I have read about, the pelican system selector pro is the best. But, there is a new 2.0 version which just came out or is coming out soon. So, should I hold out for the 2.0 version or spring for the old one? Also, is there a better switcher out there?
2. Is up-conversion truly necessary? I have an expensive HD LCD TV and am wondering whether I should get an a/v reciever to up-convert the signals, but the bad thing is I haven't seen an a/v receiver out there with more than 4 inputs. So, can someone explain why I would need to up-convert, what systems could benefit from it, and whether I should stick with a switcher or go to an a/v receiver?
3. If I connect both composite and component cables to a switcher, will one component output cable be able to carry both signals to the TV?
Thanks a lot,
