    I have a Mits 65819 and am thinking about getting a line doubler for my Dish and VCR. Which brands are recommened and where would I buy one? Also, is there a way that I can use one as a video switcher for DVD, Dish, VCR, and X-Box?

    Thanks

    There's the iScan (v2 and Pro), and some other ones i forgot which. iScan is highly recommended as it has nice PQ.

    I've seen B-Stock and/or used Quadscan Pro for around $500-600. It will do doubling, tripling, and quadrupling. Check ebay.

    How many and what kind of inputs and outputs does the Quadscan have Gordon?

    Manuel, the iscan V2 has two S-Video inputs and one composite. I have it. DVD looks real good through the S-Video inputs. I bought the V2 for the flexibility of getting two S-Video inputs. The iscan Pro has 1 x S-Video, composite, component.

    Rachael,
    The Quadscan has 2 each composite, component, and S-Video inputs. The output is RGBHV (VGA connector) or by special order, component. Most of the used ones will probably have the RGBHV output. Here is the literature for the desktop model http://www.focusinfo.com/products/tv...w_quadscan.htm

    Gordon, I think the AVS Forum store had or has a special on the Q-S Pro model for about $500...? Nice set of features. I haven't seen one in person. Best wishes!
