HDTV connection and cable info needed PLS

  hotnac 22:48 30 Apr 2006

Well here goes... I have a philips HDTV with a DVI-I connection. I am currently using a DVI-I to VGA coverter to play my 360. So you prob know now i use the VGA cable. Now that is not the problem.. I am getting telewest HDTV next week and that comes with a HDMI connection. Now i know you can get a HDMI to DVI converter almost at every electronics store. My Problem is how would i connect my 360 (VGA) and my HDTV telewest box (HDMI) to ONE DVI-I connection..

I found this but i dont know if it would do the job:

Please advice as i really do not wish to continually disconnect and connect my 360 and HDTV box every time i wanna play or watch....

The link shows a splitter - and I think you need a combiner - not the same thing, or a switch - not cheap, or an alternative.

Has the TV got alternative inputs you could use - perhaps for the XBox you could get a VGA to composite video or SCART converter.
