Don't you have an HDMI or DVI input on the TV. If not, you will probably be better server getting a component switch like this 1.

Here is a 4x switch with remote for around $35..

Yeah, but what are the other 2 devices that are currently using the components now?? Do either of them have DVI or HDMI out? If HDMI you can simply use a DVI to HDMI cable...

If 1 of them is a Xbox 360, you can use VGA..
