Stephen Beacham demonstrates how you can wire old and new video game systems into one television and have all your classic games ready to play in the blink of a patch.


  1. Picked up a 64 port model off ebay for $25

    I had a A/V switcher for years but I picked up a PVM and needed multiple outputs.

    Printed out some color coded labels looks sweet. I even found some breakout cables that split the chroma and luma in S-Video into separate cables.

  2. OK, but I rather push a button and have better video than this. However, on a pinch and budget this is fine. Nice information.

  3. This is so stupid….. rca is a fucken joke

  4. You didn't make a gameYour just using parts!😬

  5. You must be a millinair GIVE ME YOUR MONEY NOW😈😈😈😈😈😈😈😈😈😈😈😈😈😁😈😈😈😈😈😈😈

  6. Shoot, even switchers are pointless.Β  For such a small collection just get a bunch of y cables.Β  Normally you would have to worry about interference splitting theΒ cables like that, but since you'll only have one console turned on at a time…. yeah.Β 

    Also why the hell would you be using composite out?Β  Most of those systems support svideo or better.Β 

  7. Can anyone tell me how to play games in my bedroom while the console is in my living room?

  8. I have a device at home that does that at the push of a button, not unplugging and plugging.

  9. Now I just need to retire from my real life and I'm set.
