Projector help needed

Hi
I have my ps3 connected to my projector with a hdmi to dvi cable, which works fine.
I have now wish to connect my xbox 360 elite to it also, is there a switch of some sort i can get so i can share the dvi port on my projector?
the projector does have a vga socket also but the quality of gameplay is shocking.
also the other problem i have is my ps3 is connected to my home cinema system via optical for sound i also wish to connect my 360 to it via optical if at all possible. my homecinema only has one optical port though.

rep will be added for useful help
thanks

Heh yeah - i had to use an extender from an old kvm cable I had.
Have you tried changing the screen settings within the Xbox as well?
Then again, maybe my expectations aren't high as I don't have HD tv lol
