Hi all,

I have a JVC LED TV, on the TV it has:

2x HDMI slots
1x VGA port

My dilemma is:

I have a PC that has a screencard with HDMI only.
XBOX ONE that connects to said TV with HDMI
PS4 that connects to TV with HDMI

But I have to do swopping - currently between the PS4 and the PC which bugs the hell outta me.

Any idea of a device I can purchase where I can have all 3 connected at the same time.

Active HDMI to VGA converter or HDMI switch (3 to one).
It is expensive.

Your XboxOne has an HDMI-IN option

PS4 > XboxOne > TV/Receiver
PC > TV

Total cost = 0:)

More info here

/not sure if lag is still present, please report back.

//beans100 beat me to it, correct about that.

Buy this converter and connect your pc to the VGA

I bought a R99 3 way switch with a remote at cash crusaders. It's a Dixon brand and it was new.
One of my cables is poor quality and i got signal loss so i had to add a nold nokia charger to give it extra power. It works perfectly now.
