    I was bumping around Amazon this afternoon and had to share this bargain with any of you who may be looking to squeeze that last extra little bit of performance from your home entertainment set up. There are only four left in stock, so I didn't anyone to miss out. Sure, it's a tad pricey, but it's also a little longer than most, so I think it all balances out in the end.

    Howard related because he spends $100K just to hang a TV. :jj:

    Several of the reviews (particularly the one stars) are on a par with some of our best efforts in the "children's book" category. :)

    I read an article someplace where they tested these vs a coat hanger and no one knew the difference

    Does this allow you to plug directly into the satellite and avoid signal problems during storms?

    I was looking for something like that for my brother's single port TV several years ago and, at least at that time, the experts said don't even bother. All the reviewers said those switches were nothing but trouble. Something to do with DRM, if I recall. Maybe things are better today.
