Limited S-video and inputs

I only have one S-video input on my TV, and I have three S-video sources: digital cable, DVD player, and PS2. I also only have two audio/video inputs on my TV.

Point me out to the hardware that would make this work. No I don't have enough money to just buy a new TV.

I'm assuming that you're not considering buying an AV receiver right now, or else I'd suggest looking into buying one that does S-Video switching. Receivers that do this generally start around $250 -- you'd also need speakers, wire, etc.

These selectors are made for game systems but they will work with other devices. They are also less expensive

http://www.pelicanacc.com/search/detailed.php?id=71 $29.95 ( I think you might be able to find this for $19.95)

same as the one from crutchfield for $99 but only $74 ordered this one since it has component switching also and since i just got the component cables for my gamecube no more unpluging my dvd cables.

The Recoton SVS1000 can be found at Walmart, Target, etc. for less than $30. Its small and it doesn't sound like you have any need for Component Video or Digital Audio Switching.

I second the Recoton SVS1000. I've used it with great results.
