What is that box to connect all gaming systems?

I remember some time back about a "box" that you could plug all of your gaming equipment into to make only one "in" to the television. I remember seeing some pics, but that was sometime around 3 website generations ago. It's about time to break down and buy one, since I finally for a game cube for christmas

Now I have WAY too many things to plug into the television, and it's becoming a PITA to unplug something every time I want to use something.

Thanks for the help!

EB Games, Radio Shack, etc all should sell audio/video switchboxes. I got mine at EB and it would handle 5 different systems (including SVHS for each.)

Saw something like that at Radio Shack. $99. Let you connect up to 6 devices with S-video or just RCA style audio/video.

I remembered a picture of one quite some time ago. I went to radio shack, and they had at least 4 different models, and I went with the cheapest one, of course! It works great, as my television doesn't have s-video so it really doesn't matter right now.

Thanks for the help!

I have that one. You can program it so that your remote controls for the various components will switch the box automatically to that component. It certainly reduces the # of lines going into the tv.

Walmart also sells it for approx $60

Bikes and women - both have nice curves.
