So how do you guys hook up all your systems to one output?

What switch boxes do you guys recommend?

>> No.5447232

I just hook up whichever system I'm going to use manually. Not being fat is liberating, you ought to try it.

I got this cheapass scart switch and aside from only having 3 inputs it's perfect.

I use the Otaku 6-port SCART switch with the optional Component ports.

All the consoles are RGB-enabled/converted.
Hook all the consoles up to the SCART ports on the switch.
Then the output of the switch comes out of the component RCA ports.
Using RCA to BNC cables, they then hook up to the RGB inputs of the PVM.

>> No.5447312

I've done this my whole life. My TV has one S-Video input so I decide what console I want to play, plug it in and sit down. So much hard work, but it's worth it.

Anyone know where to get a Pelican System selector or a JOYTECH JS965C?

Question. I have 2 passive switches one hooked in daisy chain. Would this cause S-video to be darker then intended?

It is a mess of wires, but I use the gScartSW JP21 edition and Selecty21 boxes. However, it is more costly to stay in my old ways, as the JP21 was what I knew in the late 90s, but now everyone uses Eurro SCART. I have to start saving to switch over to Euro SCART, so I can get all the SCART cables and regular gSCARTsw, which is the one I recommend.

I have a Bandridge SVB7725 and besides a tiny bit of snow that's barely noticeable keeping some distance from the tv (that could be blamed to the shitty scart cable i have going from switch to tv) I've got no complaints. Would be nicer if it had one or two more inputs, but other than that, it performs well.

>> No.5447939

Same. I keep each console and it's accessories in plastic storage containers. Only take something out when I want to play it. Everything is organized and keeps the dust off of them. I just have a BNC to female SCART cable.

>> No.5447973

what are the rj45-ports for?

>> No.5447985

I had one of these but the picture ended up really dark on the screen. Didn't feel like messing with the picture settings so I sold it.

>> No.5448149

Depending on the console I use an RGB encoder and/or RF modulator to combine the signals on to a single cable and use the dial to select the console I want to use.

>> No.5448164

I used to do this when I was a kid, but eventually the wear from plugging in and unplugging different cords for consoles so many times eventually made the picture and sound harder to show up. The cords had to be sitting a very certain way or I had to wedge something between the inputs for it to stay. Glad I eventually got a switch box.

It's an Ethernet hub, though I would not under any circumstance use it for that purpose.

My trinitron has two scart inputs and I only have a PS1 and a PS2. Older consoles are unplayable garbage anyway and anything newer is cancer so I'm pretty much set.

I bought one of those stupid expensive, custom-built, automatic SCART switchers with my tax refund a few years back. Before that, I used to switch manually, but I like not having to fiddle around behind my setup anymore, especially since I hop between systems a lot while playing.

I just use one of these passive splitters. Mainly because it was cheap. Of course can't turn on more than one system at a time, but honestly don't really think that is issue for me at this point.

A cheap Pelican switch. I only use it for audio, since it diminishes S-Video quality and I don't use component. I've been thinking about springing for an Extron switch since I use a PVM.

Back in the late 90s, I only knew about JP21, and the only switch was the Selecty21 boxes. When the gSCARTsw was announced, everyone was getting rid of their Selecty21 to upgrade and the 4 I had ranges from $15 to $40USD so they were not expensive when everyone decided to transition to Euro SCART for the device and its wonderful features. Later the gSCARTsw was tried in a JP21 edition, and it finally gave me a 2nd option, but now it is outdated since modern gSCARTsw (standard Euro versions) has way more features like sync regeneration and passthroughs which is why I recommend it to OP.. It is just cheaper to go Euro SCART and based on my experience with the gSCARTsw [JP21] I am sure the standard version will fit OP's needs.

I know, daisy chaining Selecty21s sounds silly, but since they are the only JP21 switch boxes and they only have a meager 3 inputs and 1 output, it is just hilarity the level of toggles on these mechanical switch boxes to get a signal through. Like those cheap component and HDMI switch boxes pictured, they are mechanical, and I thought it would be nice that they take in no external power for electronical noise. However, I have not attempted the absurdity of hooking up the Selecty21s to the gSCARTsw JP21 edition but that would be even funnier. Maybe one day. For now, it is nice for me that the Super Retro Trio does combine SNES, SFC, GB, GBC, GBA, Genesis, MD, Master System,, and NES,for a singular output wire.

>> No.5452532

Half of the generic S-Video cables I own output a signal that's indistinguishable from composite. For whatever reason, a lot of them are complete shit.
I own a PVM and would probably do the same if I ever got an NES/Famicom. I don't necessarily believe that you shouldn't use RGB with consoles that weren't designed to support it, but I do think it'd be more trouble than it's worth to do RGB mods.

>> No.5452547

Pvm still have high quality tubes even with composite. Obviously it's not using the display to it's full potential, but composite on a good tube is better than composite on a shitty one.

I have an nesrgb but I legitimately think composite looks better on a pvm. Rgb for 8 bit is too sharp and sterile looking for me personally.

>> No.5453432

Did you daisy chain it with any other switches? Passive switches that do S-video to composite and vise versa usually have a resistor that makes S-video output darker then it needs to be.

I used a Radio Shack-branded 5x1 composite switcher I got in the early 2000s. Recently picked up a Philips 4x1 switcher that does composite, s-video and component.

From what I understand I can only have one type of signal connected to it at a time. I can't seem to connect it to the TVs component and then have my systems use s-video, or composite.
