Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Too Many RCA plugs!

So, I have a DVD player, a PS1, a PS2, and a Wii and they are all competing for one little overworked set of RCA plugs on my TV. When I want to switch consoles I have to get off my lazy butt and reach around my TV to switch them.

This is unacceptable!

Do you guys know of some sort of bank of RCA jacks with a switch on it or something like that? I've been looking at Amazon and Radio Shack, etc., with no success.

    You can pick up RCA selector boxes at places like Target and Best Buy pretty easily. They should be together with the cables. The average ones you'll find will have about four separate sets of jacks on the back, and buttons on the front to select which input to display.

    or if you want to be cheap and don't mind the mess, you can get a lot of y adapters, 2 female ends into 1 male end, and hook all of the devices up like that. For four devices you'd need 9 of the adapters.
