I don't really know what they are called so here it goes ...

I have a lot of like audio cables, so everytime i switch from xbox to pc to tv, i have to unplug and re-plug different cables around, does anyone know the name of hardware that has lots of inputs and I can output to a single pair of speakers? Links maybe?

If he's switching analogue audio cables, surely he wants an analog switch box?

You don't want to be running audio through another ADC-DAC pair just to switch inputs :)

something you may be able to find locally: http://www.gamestop.com/Catalog/ProductDetails.aspx?product_id=36338

these things used to be really common, but i suspect more and more people either have newer tv's with more inputs or a/v receivers that handle all their inputs. i remember seeing a decent one at toys-r-us a year or so ago, but nothing on their website right now.

just found these one walmart's:

So I hit up Radio Shack and they had this 5 input selector device. Works great except that it doesn't stay on. It expects a video source for it to auto-sense. Useless for me since I want my video coming from HDMI and I have no video sources.

Ordering another audio selector now. Easier since I know what to search for.

i you haven't already ordered another one, you can try using the composite video (yellow rca) as an audio channel. say, white cable to white jack, and red cable to yellow jack. should work fine still and will sense a voltage and stay on.

just an idea.
