A bargain if you have an older CRT TV with limited scart connections and
loads of equipment. You can select the connection scart connection you wish
from the comfort of your sofa.

My local Maplin are selling off 5 way scart switch boxes with remote control
for �9.99. The product appears to be discontinued and does not appear on
their website - probably best to ring your local branch.

This is the product

http://www.tvcables.co.uk/cgi-bin/tvcables/scart-switch.html

it has Scart S-Vdeo, Phono and optical inputl. And the unit is RGB capable.

Where does it say it handles RGB?

Thanks, can you tell if the composite phono output is buffered from the
composite on the output scart or are they just paralleled up? I'd like
to run outputs to 2 separate pieces of equipment.

Thought it would be, thanks for checking

I suppose if I use RGB to the telly and disconnect pin 19 on that scart
then I can still use the composite phono connection to feed the video.

I've had a nearly identical unit for a few years.
Branded as Hitachi model HIT001 it has bevelled edges to front panel
and the
input switching is on the left with av RCA inputs on the right, but
doesn't look quite so plasticcy. Rear panel looks to be identical . �10
from a market stall, Argos return I believe, used to be �70'ish last
time it was in their catalogue.

Wide screen switching and so forth works fine as does recording and
playback from a VCR connected to input 3. Had no problems with it. Plus
the guy threw in a bagful of scart and av leads and a spare PSU.
