I have a bunch of older video game systems I wanted to connect to my HDTV. My tv only has one composite input so I would need a switch/system selector. I have about 6 systems I need to connect and everything I've seen is mainly 3 or 4 inputs. Does anyone have any recommendations on where to look or what to get? I've seen a lot for component and hdmi but nothing for older composite connections. Thanks.
It's actually a newer tv. Samsung 42inch 1080p...3 HDMI inputs, 2 Component, and 1 Composite (which is what all the older video systems use, like NES and Sega Genesis). It just seems like like clearly nobody really uses these type of connections anymore on newer tv's. Make sense?
Myb rother in law just bought an onkyo receiver ($300-350ish) that auto converts all signals to be sent over a single HDMI. SO you could plug all your components into it and it will play it through one cable to your TV.
I can find other brands/models if you're interested. I bet even some of the sub $300 receivers do that.
I didn't realize that the receivers did that as well. I was looking into Onkyo a month ago for a 5.1 system but never got around to buying one. This would be great and take care of both things then. Thanks for the help.
I have this one from monoprice Click. Mine is hooked up to the BD player and xbox360 and it works great for the money.
It says componant but in the Knowledge Base section someone asks the question of what you are trying to do.
