    I have my HR20 connected to the TV via HDMI to DVI adapter. My TV has only 1 DVI port (my HR21 is connected via cmponent).

    I would like to connect my older Media Center PC to the TV as a game machine, but it's output is DVI too.

    Is there a way (adapter, switch, etc.) to connect two DVI sources to my single DVI input on the TV?

    If not, is there a way to split component inputs? (I could switch the HR20 to component as well, but I only have 2 component inputs, and the DVD player uses one of those too).

    Does your tv have a VGA input? You can use that for the PC output.

    Nope, I had thought of that, but no VGA. It's a rear projection TV from 2003, so not the most up to date on inputs (but the screen is big and the picture is awesome, so no complaints).

    As David pointed out, an HDMI switch may be your best option here.
