Looking for program to switch video outputs

So here's my deal. I have 2 monitors currently hooked up, and an HDTV that I swap out with one of the monitors when I want to watch a movie from my computer. The problem (more of an annoyance) is that I have to unplug one of my monitors (DVI) to use the HDMI port on my video card, otherwise it won't show up. I am aware it can only use a combination of two at a time. What I would like to do is be able to have all 3 always plugged in (2 DVI + 1 HDMI), and have a program that will allow me to choose which ones I want to be in use at the given time, so I don't need to go digging under my desk all the time. Anyone know of such a program?

You might be better off with a video switch box. Hook up one dvi port directlt to the monitor. Hook the other dvi into a video switch box. The outputs on the video switch box would go to your other monitor and tv. Scan the link below to see if you can fins an appropriate box.
