Yes, an A/V switch, from Radio Shack.
More inputs that is. If my monitor only can take 1 A/V input right now, can I buy something to allow it to connect maybe 2 or 3? Thanks!
Yes, but what would happen if you accidentally had both devices on at the same time?
I think you meant to say A/B Switch.Originally Posted by ukchris
They exist for all sorts of inputs: RCA, S-video, CATV, & VGA to name the ones off the top of my head. If you're looking for a VGA A/B Switch, you might not have very good luck at Radio Shack, try ebay or google or here.
If you want a regular S-video or RCA switch then I got something at WalMart that would work for you. It's an auto-sensing/switching 4-way switch. It has 4 S-video inputs and 4 RCA composite inputs and automatically chooses the signal to output simultaneously to CATV channel 3/4, RCA, and s-video (it also handles a stereo RCA stream). The only thing it doesn't do is convert composite input to S-video output. I think I got it for $20, and it works beautifully. You can even get rid of the auto sensing function and choose the input manually. The only thing I don't know is how much power it uses - I wouldn't imagine it uses too much though.
Old plans out the window because of an accident .
Have: M1-ATX, EPIA M10000, 256MB, 60GB 2.5", slim slot load DVD
Need: Time, HU integration, ideas for Lilli
Thank you very much for that everyone. Although I would prefer the auto sensing/manual one from Walmart, I don't feel like running another power wire to that component as well. The A/B switch from radioshack should do it. Thanks again!
