Hey guys, this is for people like me who have a crap ton of consoles to hook up and I am just wondering what people do and would recommend...

At the moment I got my 4k 50inch HD tv hooked up to the:

Mega Drive, Master System, Mega CD, Saturn, Dreamcast, Snes, NES, Xbox, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Blu Ray Player, Wii, Wii U, spectrum and N64.

I run most of the console through AV to my sound mixer which has 12 av input and connect the mixer to the TV via AV.

The rest of the HDMI consoles I hook up to a automatic HDMI switcher.

I then run my capture card (mainly the HDMI consoles at the moment) from the HDMI switch to the Roxio Pro HD card straight into the TV.

On top of this I got 7.1 hooked up in the back of the mixer so as you can imagine its a fucking nightmare! It takes about 3 hours to plug everything in and it's a bloody nightmare.

I am wondering if anybody has a similar issue and if so what they did to make it more manageable? Also my HD TV only has 2 HDMI ports in the back and I am running my capture card through the HDMI switch, would this make any difference on the quality of the capture?
