I have the following devices:

  • TV (Inputs: HDMI + DVI)
  • Xbox 360 (Outputs: HDMI Audio/Video)
  • Desktop PC (Outputs: HDMI + DVI Video; 1/8" mini cable out Audio)
  • Two LCD PC monitors (Outputs: DVI Video)

And I have two rooms I would like to use these devices in:

  • Living Room (contains TV + Xbox 360)
  • Bed Room (contains PC + monitors)
  • Both rooms are adjacent to each other.

I would like to play my PC games on my TV. Conversely, I would like to play my Xbox 360 on my PC monitors. Is there any way to have some sort of central hub/switch system that I can send different video/sound signals to either the TV setup or Monitor setup? Especially given my PC outputs Video through the video card and Audio through a sound card?

Bonus points for incorporating a NAS into this system. Thanks for the suggestions! (I apologize if there's a better SE site for this to go into.)

Your main question's easy (hdmi switching, as suggested previously by others), the NAS part however is confusing. Is being able to access it with your xbox/pc not enough, or is that not what you mean? – DaJF Dec 27 '13 at 1:23

you need something like this HDMI Switching

forgot to mention that you can get HDMI to DVI converter for the screens that don't take HDMI

The HDMI switch is a good suggestion. Forgot about those. Is there any solution that would take into account that my PC has separate Audio and Video outputs? – Fillip Peyton Dec 26 '13 at 20:13
you would need something like this BYTECC HM108 DVI + Audio to HDMI® Converter, link – Vladimir Oselsky Dec 26 '13 at 20:19
