You can either move your television and plug/unplug whatever you're going to use at the time (which can drive you nuts, not to mention wear out your connectors), or just invest in one of these little things.
I love how simple the Recoton is. You just plug your stuff into the back of it (up to 4 different devices), then run another set of cables from the "out" jacks to the back of your TV. That's it! I've seen other little boxes that do the same thing for hundreds of dollars, and need electricity to work. A total waste of money, in my opinion. I keep my Recoton on top of my television set, and switch between each device with a push of a button now. No more having to deal with wires everywhere or moving the TV.
The Recoton doesn't come with extra cables to run from the back of it to your TV set, so if you don't have some spare A/V and S-Video cables around, be sure to get a set. I personally use the brand from Monster Cable, which has wonderful picture quality.
There's a MUCH more expensive version in the Crutchfield catalog (like $150). Sure that one has a few extra bells and whistles but I don't think it justifies teh $130 extra (like a remote that only has 3 buttons...? )
This sucker is all you need if you own a DVD, VCR, Game Station, etc...
Make sure that you buy any composite video or S-Video cables that you'll use to hook this up, though, as it doesn't come with any.
The package said this device would convert Composite video to S-video.
Decided to open box since it was unusable in current state, was dismayed by discovery. The advertized Composite to S-video conversion function is accomplished by a crude 4 component circuit permanently connecting the Composite and S-video outputs. This may work for conversion, but also causes distortion of S-video signals.
Both S-video and Composite signals are on separate circuit board traces from inputs through switches to outputs, just connected by the conversion circuit at output. Removed the 4 components (C1,C2,L1,RO), and the S-video signal distortion disappeared. Output is now crisp and clear.
Also discovered that the Left and Right audio for each input are shorted together on the printed circuit board resulting in only Mono audio at the output.
This is baffling because there are separate circuit traces and switch inputs/outputs for all audio signals on the PCB, but L/R are shorted by a circuit trace directly where the input audio connecters are soldered. No combining/current limiting circuitry, just a dead short. You can verify this by measuring resistance between left and right audio of any input. L/R audio outputs are not shorted until an input switch is selected.Read more ›
