3 Way Coax Switcher?
« on: March 25, 2021, 04:26:13 pm »
With my gaming set up, I like to use switchers and so on so I can play anything right away without having to switch cables out
I currently use this

For my atari 7800 and Atari C-380, but I just bought an atari 2600, so now I need one that uses a 3 way switcher, but all i have found are piss poor... Any suggestions?

No expert here but knowing about video signals... You're probably better off getting a composite(maybe S-video) mod and ditching coax all together

Your going to want look for something old school. Radio Shack made a ton of these back in the day, when those consoles were current.

Check out something like this:

Did they make an A/B/C switch?  You can find A/B all over the place, actually back in the day I just used two of those daisy chained, though signal quality isn't the greatest.   :-\
