View Full Version : Video Switch

My daughter bought an old game system for her TV. I'm trying to find a vidoe switch that will let me do the game system in and the cable in to the single cable connector on the back of the TV.

I know excatly what I"m looking for but can't find it. It will have two in's and one out and will look just like a cable splitter but has a switch on it to switch between the two input sources. I know that they used to make them because I had one. Now I can't find one. I've checked at Best Buy and Radio Shack and all they have are more complicated (thus expensive) switches.

Any good sources?

Here is what I'm looking for and it appears that Best Buy has them online. They didn't have one at the store I went to.

Model: DX-AD112 | SKU: 9390722

Norm, need I suggest you look on the far left of the unit? (wink wink)

You might find one at an electronics surplus place, like Electronic Goldmine or All Electronics.

Well I finally found one. It is a 3 position switch and little more than I wanted to pay, but that is okay, the kid is happy. BTW after I bought it I found the one I wanted at Wally world for half the price of what I paid.
