I have a PS3, 360, and Wii U. I switch my Wii U and 360 HDMI cable because my tv only has 2 slots. Does doing that mess up the system?

no just dont switch them while the console is on.

also be careful each time you plug it and unplug it... you could loosen or break the hdmi slot in the wiiu.

Would that damage the system if it affected the HDMI slot
