    Get a HDMI splitter (Ebay or Amazon). I got a 5 port HDMI splitter so that my PC, 360 and PS3 can share I DVI input. Thus from my monitor to the splitter's output is a DVI-I to HDMI adapter. Then using 3 of the 5 available inputs the splitter is connected via HDMI leads. You don't need to get a super expensive one because it is Digital and anyone who says any differently is lying through their nose. Don't get super cheap either or you will be plaged with green dotted artifacts which are very distracting as i found out when i got my first one at Amazon. Luckily they allowed me to send it back and i got a superior one from Ebay.

    I have the much older version of this.

    of note, there is no requirement to have a switcher box that is powered, I had a manual switch and it worked fine

    I'll get one of these eventually. Reaching back to unplug the cable is a pain in the butt.
