    i have a HDTV with HDCP through DVI, i only have 1 DVI socket and its currently being used by my media center pc, i will however be getting Sky HD and its going to have to be connected through the DVI thats being used, can you buy a 2way box like you can for Scart?

    Oh and if you can get 2way DVI boxes will this degrade picture quality when in use?

    There is a way to switch between your DVI components. It's called a DVI KVM switch. The price is pretty expensive, and the cost increases with more DVI ports you can switch from.

    Below is a link from Yahoo shopping, this will give you an idea what you are looking for and how much it will cost you.

    I have a 2-way VGA KVM switch, I don't notice any quality degradation.
