Signal splitter ?

Recommended Posts

I've been off site for quite a while , wondering if someone could recommend a good signal splitter?

Basically I want to run my 5200, 7800, coleco, etc, into one device and send it to the coax input.

I dont necessarily want something I have to push a button to choose which console, a simple power on and thats the console you are on would be fine .

 

Anyone?

 

thanks!

I'm not familiar with any auto switching COAX switchers. There are 2,3 and 4 way splitters but I've not actually tried to use one in the manner you are talking about and have always just used switchers instead which did require pushing a button or something similar.

Automatic HDMI switchers are a Dime-A-Dozen, I have << THIS ONE >> and it works real well.  Now these days, RF switchers, that's tough.  They have them for Amateur Radio use, but you would also have to get adapters to convert the cable connectors adding to the overall cost.  

 

If your video games used COMPOSITE output, you would be able to use something like << THIS >>, but even then it requires a remote control.

 

A passive unit like mentioned above MIGHT work, but when used backwards from it's original intent it MIGHT attenuate the signal.  Good luck, you'll need it!

Thanks for the info so far... I'm thinking that the one with all of the coax jacks on the top {amazon] will not work as it is a one in and the rest are outs. I'm pretty sure that will not work in reverse.

 

It has to be multiple ins to one or two outs.

Any splitter will work, but all inputs are connected at the same time. Just only turn one console on at a time...
Not sure backfeeding anything into a powered off console will do any damage, however.
