eBay: SCART cables switch 4 to 1 (Professional Scart cable switch box Quality 1 – 4 way)

Hello Skooter Blog readers. Today I talk about a SCART cables switch 4 to 1 (Professional Scart cable switch box Quality 1 – 4 way), acquired on eBay from the seller theonestopsatshopuk, directly from England.

The SCART cables switch 4 to 1 or SCART cables switch 4 to 1 to avoid anglicisms allows connecting up to 4 devices with SCART output on a single SCART input, and the device selection to be displayed is made through small keys. The opposite is also possible, in other words, it is possible to use the switch to switch a single SCART output device up to 4 inputs.

But why do we need SCART cables in Brazil? If you read my article, eBay: SCART Audio and RGB video cable + RCA sound for the Mega Drive III by Tectoy, Japanese and European Mega Drive II, and Sega Genesis 2 and 3 (Sega Mega Drive / Genesis 2 AV RGB Scart cable + RCA sound), you already know that the RGB SCART cables provide the best possible output in the classic video games, like the Mega Drive, the Super Nintendo and the Playstation, much better than RF and composite video, that are more traditional. You can also use a SCART Video Converter + HDMI to HDMI to connect the classic consoles in modern televisions and see a beautiful upscale to the images to 1080p.

But buying a SCART Video Converter + HDMI to HDMI for each console would be too expensive. That is where it comes the SCART cables switch 4 to 1. I plug the 3 consoles (Mega Drive, the Super Nintendo and the Playstation One) to it through SCART RGB cables. And I plug the SCART cables switch 4 to 1 to SCART Video Converter + HDMI to HDMI. So I can easily select between the 3 consoles, and play all of them with the best possible image quality with the original hardware and current TVs.

Note that selecting a good SCART cables switch is not a trivial task. First, is very difficult to find them in Brazil or even in the U.S.. Because SCART is only used on a large scale in Europe and Australia, it is in these places that you have to search. Most offer ends up being in eBay from the U.K.. The cheapest models do not have keys, some claim to be automatic, but in practice all they do is connecting all the devices together. Escape from these switches. SCART outputs has a voltage / high current in some pins, enough to get into the consoles and feed them enough to partially start their circuits and have them to generate output to the screen. Then the images merge and you see nothing. I'm not kidding, in the case of Super Nintendo and Mega Drive, for example, the energy that enters the SCART is enough to light the Power LED on the other console, even if the power supply and the power switch are turned off.

There are also switches that are not RGB, in other words, there wires are connecting only the composite video, that we don't care about, because we want the RGB signal. The SCART cables switch 4 to 1 was my choice because it is a mechanical switch, and I have seen reports that it works great for this task, isolating well the entries that are off. It worked perfectly, I did not notice any difference in image running through it or the console connected directly to the SCART Video Converter + HDMI to HDMI. So the product is approved.

The SCART connector from the SCART cables switch 4 to 1 is gold plated. The construction of the device as a whole looks good. The 4 buttons are used to select each of the inputs. It is important to press only the input button that will be used, and left the others not pressed.

Another doubt. In RGB cable for snes, I saw some with audio wires individually separated(female) tb and saw a cable without it. What is the difference?

Skooter, I want to put my Super Nintendo on my HD TV and saw your blog. I would like if possible, send me the links of all devices that will need for this (I believe that the SNES and SCART SCART to HDMI converter). It would be nice if you could send the links to the e-mail [email protected] /* <![CDATA[ */!function(){try{var t="currentScript"in document?document.currentScript:function(){for(var t=document.getElementsByTagName("script"),e=t.length;e--;)if(t[e].getAttribute("cf-hash"))return t[e]}();if(t&&t.previousSibling){var e,r,n,i,c=t.previousSibling,a=c.getAttribute("data-cfemail");if(a){for(e="",r=parseInt(a.substr(0,2),16),n=2;a.length-n;n =2)i=parseInt(a.substr(n,2),16)^r,e =String.fromCharCode(i);e=document.createTextNode(e),c.parentNode.replaceChild(e,c)}}}catch(u){}}();/* ]]> */ for I am very noobão this story shopping via internet. Hug, thank if you can do me a favor.

Skooter thanks for the tip. I saw a video of another skinny on youtube talking horrors and the SCART-HDMI Black and my courage. If I buy this CSYNC and the SCART-HDMI Black can play without problems? And as for shopping at DX, you made via invoice or installment card rolls good too (being international)?

Skooter, these cables will work? In good, was needed even you buy the cables and resold the Free Market to save all of us haha. If needed make any changes or lack of electronic little pieces just a law student as I do not know, you already do and put in the price. It would be our salvation, face!
