Multi-devce to one source problem.

Hi there. I have 2 DVDs and a video recorder, each with their own individual audio/video cables needing to go into the back of my TV. Is there anything that i can buy that will allow me to plug them all in at once. Any help is appreciated.

Cheers

An rf modulator may do it.

I have checked out the switch boxes and that seems to be a good option. Here is another question.....is it possible to buy one of these from CompUSA or some other high street outlet????

That's possible James. Your best bet is probably to go with a receiver as that gives you substantially more value, especially if you have separate speakers. Even if you don't, it's a good way to get started.

Receivers are available from any major electronics retailer and range from below $100 (generally not very good at that point) to many thousands of dollars (for truly high-end stuff).

This Onkyo for $130 might fit the bill - the special is online only though.

Thanks for the advice. I am going to look into this further, but will probably go with what you suggested. Looks like it fits the bill perfectly.

Thanks again.
