I saw a S-Video distributor at radio shack for $40 and was wondering if anyone have one of these. It has one S-video in ( it'll be for the SAT receiver) and 3 outs (one will be to the RPTV and the other to SVHS). It's not a switcher and distribute the signal and amplifies it I suppose. I like to know whether there's a degradation of signal. Would this be the route to go or go with a Y connector/splitter. My 3rd option was going to be running the S-video from the sat receiver to the SVHS and from the SVHS to the RPTV. Of course I'm concern about the degradation of signal routing this way. Also I need the VCR on 24/7 if I don't want to deal with the hassle of turning on the VCR each time I turn on the TV. My forth option is to buy a new audio receiver that can route S-video. My current one don't have that.
