Hello, I want to share my nice speakers between my Xbox 360 and PowerMac G5.

This is what I have:



So I want to be able to use the speakers for the Mac when on it, then the Xbox 360 when I play it. Any ideas?

The easiest way is to get an A/V switch, assuming you're just using analog output (minijack or stereo red/white RCA cables). It's just a simple little box that you can use to swap between inputs. You can pick up a basic 2-port model at Radio Shack for $15:

They also have a 4-port model that you might want to pick up for future expansion - iPod, CD player, whatever. Costs an extra $5:

Looks like there's an automatic 6-port model for $20:
