View Full Version : [ubuntu] need a hardware solution

June 28th, 2009, 08:20 PM

I have an HD projector mounted to my ceiling connected via DVI cable. I would like to connect the following components to it
X-box 360 (non HDMI) component cable only (red, blue, green)
a 5.1 speaker system
an HD Cable box
and my ubuntu operating system.

how do i connect all these devices?
has anyone else do anything like this?
Is there a computer system that would allow me to connect all these things together or would i need a receiver? which receiver should i get?

also, I have considered getting a PS3 if that would be simpler

What you need is a video switch, you may have a hard time with the component inputs, but all the other inputs and outputs should be included.
