Was thinking exactly the same thing! (My projector only has HDMI input, so to convert an 360 to HDMI without having to buy a new one would definately have been an added bonus! :)
#4
This is an old product though, which is why its so cheap. If you want HDMI then there are plenty of them around.
banned#5
Note that these devices have been known to have problems with the Wii, up to being completely unusable with the Nintendo console.
#6
Ive got 360, Wii and DVD player all wired upto mine and had no problems what so ever.:thumbsup:
#7
I've had one of these for a while and haven't had a problem with the Wii until I got Wii Fit, which sends the screen flicking every time a loading screen comes up - it's fine with the actual game. I contacted Joytech who are sending out an adapter that goes on the Wii component cable and should fix the problem.

Other than that it works great - the standard Xbox 360 connection gives a good picture and saves cables, plus it has a builtin network hub and has optical switching too - I use mine wth my PS3/360 Elite for the network/sound features alone :)

It seemed to be that some units had problems with the Wii and some did not.

Maybe a bad batch or something, dunno.

If logitech are issuing adaptors to cure the problem its safe to say there is a problem somewhere despite some not ever experiencing it.

Does it talk too, then? "Ooh, Xbox, you're faaaabulous!"

is this if you dont have enough sockets in your tv?
#12
Cheaper, better in my opinion, and smaller

http://www.play-asia.com/paOS-13-71-n-49-en-70-2lob.html

Wii and PS3 have wireless anyhow, xbox i'd imagine a lot of people have got the wireless adaptor. obviously if you haven't got wifi you'd probably want another solution, but then you'd need another adaptor for the wii.

Or for the ultimate in conveniance, get one without the manual switcher (available on ebay)
#13
It's worth mentioning that this also has multiple optical audio inputs and can therefore be used as an optical switch box (complete with remote!) It also has composite and s-video inputs for each device so you can use it on non-component devices.
#14
Awsome price for what it is really I've got a Joytech 245C and it rocks! :)

Im not sure what you think your comparing your link to but its nothing to do with this thread.

As for why your talking about wireless and wifi, Ive no idea. Are you sure you have the right thread?

It is something to do with this thread - it's a component switcher which is the main portion of this device, the reference to wireless is because the Joytech product has a 10/100 switch whereas the pure component device does not. However the point is that since the Wii/PS3 are wireless anyway then they don't need that facility.

I'm not agreeing but just pointing out the relevence.

Depends entirely on your set up and needs. Not everyone has or wants wireless. I, personally, can't bare to game on anything other than a hardwired connection.
This kind of thing would be absolutely perfect for me - right now I have my PC, my 360, my PS3 and a networked printer all in the one room - the 10/100 Hub would definitely suit me there, especially since the 4-port HUB I have now is full (one goes to the main router in another room, one goes to a different person's computer in the room next door - so I have 2 left to split between a PS3, a 360 and a PC).
The catch is I NEED HDMI, as I use my computer Monitor (which has a HDMI port) for the Consoles as well.

I'd be careful with this. I had two, both had the same problems. The picture from my Wii vanished at some points, the splash screen where it tells you to press A and B never appeared either. That wouldn't be so bad but in game splash screen went too. The picture from my 360 turned into a dim mess and if you use the built into network switch it effected the picture of everything connected to it.

Thought it might be the cheap component cables that come with it so tried some Nordost ones from my cinema room (£170 quid a pop) and it was still the same. Wont be buying anything else from Joytech. Complete tat in my opnion.

You paid £170 for component cables???!!!

If you have a cinema room with a projector, then you more than likely need cable runs of 20m or more.

Its all right buying a 1 or 2m cable for under a tenner, but when its over such a distance and feeding a screen of over 100 inches then you cant just buy any old ****. Plus dont forget the same arguments that apply to digital HDMI cables dont apply to analogue component cables.
#22
Have one of these from ToysRus for about same price a few months ago. Brilliant product in my opinion, 360, Wii, PS2, DVD, media player all connected with component and all consoles using the network hub. No problems at all.
#23
By the way those complaining about the wii, there is a fix contact joytech and they will fsend you a small RCA adapter which solves the issue,

but if you can't wait then it's simply a male to female RCA connector with a 1K resistor(u can make it urself!) fixes the wii issue!

Top deal BTW I would HIGHLY recommend this especially f you have a LCD wall mounted(pain accessing the rear panel, and one set of connections from joytech>TV and the rest from the joytech makes life very easy..

Voted HOT!
#24
FYI TK MAXX have had these on offer over the past few weeks in ad-hoc stores for £24.99 but VERY limited stock.

Also read the reviews on play - it may put SOME of you off...
#25
Hi folks

Just thought I'd mention I've got one of these and its worked perfectly since day one. Had a 360, Wii and dvd player hooked up to it along with a surround sound and it works a treat, particularily when combined with our logitech remote which I've set to automatically switch this at the same time.

At that price its a steal.

They connect to an £3K Lexicon RV-5 amp so in the scale of things they are about right. Some people pay £100 for a pair of sh1t trainers made in a sweatshop in China, do you call them an arse? Think before opening you mouth eh?

As for the "fix" that Joytech supply, I had one and all it did was make the Wii picture that dark it was next to useless. Honestly, it's a pure pot luck with these things, if you like a gamble then go for it.

Theres loads, just search ebay etc.

I would however recommend you spend a bit more a get the Oppo HM-31 from these guys http://www.crtprojectors.co.uk/oppo_dvd.htm#hm_31

Over £60 but the cheaper ones all have problems and most dont even work.
#28
Good if you dont need hdmi - probably worth it just as an optical and network switcher if nothing else

None of those have a built in HUB and I can't see any that has separate HDMI AND Optical in/out.
#30
Can somebody tell me how long the output cable is on this?
#31
It uses the same output cables as the Xbox 360, so it's whatever they are.
#32
1st post, Hi ALL!! great site

q) Does this come with an 'output' lead ? and if it does is it any good. If I need a component out lead can anyone recommend a good cheapish one plese.... thanks

so it doesn't really work for you at all then then cos it's not HDMI? as i stated in my own post, if you're not wanting wireless my other one isn't your answer either. surely you'd be better served with a cheap network hub and an hdmi switch?

Well just buy a hub then?

Also why would you need an optical switch aswell if you are using HDMI?

20m -yeah right!

If you've got the layout wrong then you will need long cable runs - 20M ffs!

Just because I'm using HDMI for the picture doesn't mean I can use it for the sound as well (As nice as that would be). My sound system doesn't support HDMI in the slightest and I'm running the picture on my computer monitor (via HDMI), so I HAVE to get sound via optical. I dare say I'm not alone in this as a lot of people who have upgraded to HD TV's probably haven't got around to upgrading their sound systems yet.

What makes you think we would make this up? LOL.

Unless you have RF extenders then having a projector ceiling mounted behind your head means that you need to run the cable from the front of the room where your kit is around the room to the PJ. So for example in a room 6m by 5m it would be 3m from the kit to the side wall another 5m to the back wall, 3m up to the ceiling 3m to the center of the ceiling on the back wall and another 3m to the pj, and another 1m or so just so you have some leverage. So whats that, 18m?

So whats the alternative mate? Ceiling mount the DVD player aswell? Just run the cable direct, straight across the floor and over peoples heads up to the ceiling? Or maybe blu tack it straight up the wall and across the ceiling?

As I said unless you lucky enought to be able to run the cables under floorboards or inside walls or have a seperate kit rack closer to the PJ and have RF extenders the easiest and cheapest way is to run it around the skirting like i described.

Seriously, stick to your cheap 32" tevion from asda and you will never have to worry about such things.

Seen these in Manchester's TKMaxx today - same price.
Just thought I'd mention it - in case anyone would rather pick one or prefers to pay in cash or something.

Hey guess, stupid question but do you HAVE to have an Xbox 360 to get this working? im a bit stuck ..
