    My grandmother has a Super Nintendo in her bedroom. Yes, I said grandmother! She just replaced her old TV and VCR with a TV/VCR combo. We're unsure as to how to get the Super Nintendo to work now. I tried connecting the cable box and Nintendo to a splitter than to the TV but that didn't work. Any suggestions?

    A splitter will only work the other way.
    I assume you're using the RF connection? The SNES should have a pass through. You could also use an A/B switch box for better quality.

    She's a spunky one, my Grandma is! How many 74 year olds do ya see playing Nintendo? It's hysterical!

    Anywho, I've used the pass through, but was unable to get anything on the screen. I assume that while using the passthrough, that once I turn on the Nintendo, it should automatically come up on the TV, correct? But it doesn't, which is why I'm confused.
