Your Ride: Whatever I can get my hands on
AV Question: please help

Okay, so sitting here in my barracks with me I have the following:

1 computer
1 Digital Cable Box
1 Xbox 360

1 Wireless Router
1 Cable Modem

1 19" Widescreen Hi-Def Monitor
1 Set of standalone speakers.



Now the question is, how do i put it all together? I have the internet networking figured out, that was easy, and I have the cable split between the cable box and the computer (mainly for recording purposes because I spend most of my time [15+ hours a day] in the schoolhouse.)

What I can't figure out though is how to connect an Xbox360, a cable box, and a computer to the same monitor and the same set of speakers.

Computer: I have both a VGA Cable and a DVI cable I can use to connect it
Cable Box: can be connected via coax, s-video, or standard AV cables
Xbox360: Component Cables

Monitor: Can accept one VGA cable and one DVI cable.


DOES ANYONE KNOW OF A PRODUCT/DEVICE THAT WILL COMBINE THOSE THREE THINGS FOR ME AND SEND THE VIDEO TO THE MONITOR AND THE AUDIO TO THE SPEAKERS?

You have three choices, stand behind our troops, grab a gun and toe the line with our troops, or stand in front of them, they can use the extra armor.
