Thanks for suggesting patch bays though. I was reading up on them and I'm intrigued, how exactly do you have yours set up?
Screwed to the bottom of the loft above my desk. They're also rack-mountable. The TV, stereo receiver, computer ins and outs are all permanently connected, as are the VCR, DVD and CD players, and a couple other things. I can connect game consoles, video cameras, or anything new without digging around behind stuff. One could route 2 outputs with Y cables, but I don't know whether that would degrade the signal. It's just copper wires and connectors, no circuits. So I would expect not, but I haven't tried/not sure how to prove.
