    Picked one of these up today that has 4 inputs, and some fancy pre-labeled buttons for your gaming systems or home theater equipment. I'm going to try it out for component inputs. (x-box,ps2,panny dvd player,and hd decoder box).

    What brand was it? I assume it is not powered at that price.

    yes it is powered by ac when using the rf out and it's made by Pelican accesories, found it at Super Wal Mart in the game accesories section. The box says you can use it on any tv, so if you're tv only had rf, you could still use the rca plugs for the equipment.
    I'm going to actually hook it up later on today.

    I bought that same switch box (because it had the nice name plates) and wanted to use it as a COMPONENT switcher...... for my PS2, GC and DVD, Well something was wrong because it didnt work..... it passes COMPOSITE fine but there has got to be some issue with the COMPONENT cables...... (back to the old Radio shack AV switcher, WORKS GREAT!!!)
