      Too bad that wasn't his question. The most I've seen is 1 Aux and 1 CD changer input that could be used as another Aux w/ an adapter.

        disclaimer: i have no idea if there are dual aux head units

        that said.. couldn't you (depending on your sound card) just go from PS2 to line in on the computer ... that should pass the signal straight through on most sound cards i think... thus eliminating the need for dual aux and (i imagine) saving you a bunch of money.

          I have a JVC which has an AUX on the front and LINE IN on the back for the CD changer. It requires a $40 adapter to use the LINE IN. If you need the model number let me know and I'll post it. It's about a year old but I've seen them for sale on the net for around $125-$150.

              There's also the lame unsafe way... which I use all of the time. Having multiple computers and a single audio system, I just put RCA splitters or 1/4" headphone splitters to connect both inputs... Used to connect my CD changer and computer RCA inputs to my home reciever for awhile... because I wanted to listen to CDs while I was playing games/etc. And connected two computers via 1/4" headphone splitter for awhile as well, back in the days of playing EQ on two computers.

              Probably not good for all of the components involved... but it's a solution that doesn't involve switches, changing adapters, etc... Only used with home electronics, though, but it works... will probably introduce some noise, etc.

              I would definately recommend going with the line input on sound card approach, but if you are lazy/brave, you might want to try the combination approach...

                  I believe the model number for these HUs:

                  KD-SH77
                  KD-SH99
                  KD-SH707
                  KD-SH909

                  JVC doesn't make any of them anymore, but you can still find them on eBay.

                        I'm trying to build a digital switchbox, yeah its still a switch box, but when I get done with it, its gonna be inside the head unit, and have a button on my dash. I'm gonna everything off of it, computer, Sirius, eventually radio all into my amp.

                        Based on a LED chaser circuit, simple but it works. Here's where I started:

                              PIE (www.pie.net) has a 3 input aux unit (http://www.pie.net/sec14sb3.htm)

                              from the site...

                              "The X3 switchable Auxiliary Input Selector accepts three auxiliary input sources with a CD changer present! Now you can switch between auxiliary sources at will! The X3 Auxiliary Input Selector allows the user to add up to three auxiliary input sources, connected directly between the CD changer and Ford, GM, and Chrysler audio systems. The X3 interrupts the audio of the CD changer, switching between three user-selectable RCA level auxiliary sources, and defaults back to the CD changer if desired."


                              not sure if this will work for you, but I thought I would pass it along just in case.
