New Smart-e SNX888 HDMI matrix Cat5 switch

This looks great and will be out around Feb 09 - seems more functional than the Avatrix HD matrix Cat5 switch which does not seem as HDMI-friendly.

Effectively 16 in and 8 out true matrix switch with IR routing -great job Smart-e, and it's made in the UK!

Unfortunately SkyHD boxes still don't output 5.1 over HDMI so you'll still need an extra cable if you want to distribute it, though Smart-e uses single Cat5/6/7/8 so it should make our lives easier with a lot less cables and clutter.
