INPUT. not an output.
if minimum wires is key, you need an hdmi swithcer, or manually plug/unplug when you change sources.
i mean what else can you do?
you shouldnt need audio connections, if tv speakers are all you have for audio. if you have a separate audio system, id opt for SPDIF/Toslink optical/coax..
My Sony HDTV and Time Warner DVR box and a DVD player is connected through component and composite cables.I like to use a HDMI cable but hear that TW DVR box still would have to be connected with Audio composite cables in order to it to work audio.The HDTV has only one HDMI outlet.Could I get all three working with just one HDMI cable?
