honestly, if the TV is old enough to have only 1 HDMI input, i assume it is a 720p TV. Being 720p, i would probably just run component cables for one of the devices with optical sound (probably the cable box)
Hopefully someone can give me some advice. I have a 3 year old Yamaha reciever currently being used with a Toshiba LCD, Bose surround sound, Verizon FIOS cable box, and Toshiba blu ray player. My reciever doesn't have an HDMI input so currently I am switching the HDMI cable (via the TV) from the cable box to the blu ray player every time i want to watch a blu ray disc. I figured an HDMI switcher would be an easy/effective solution for this hassle. It hasn't been. I've tried two models and both have compatability issues with the blu ray player - with one all there was was a black screen and with the other I got the "handshake" effect. Does anyone know of a reasonably priced switcher that is compatible with the Toshiba blu ray player and/or a way to find out if one is or not. Basically I'm trying to avoid having to buy several models and waiting to find out if they work or not. Thanks a lot.
