I want to hook up my Dreamcast, SNES, and Saturn though s-video to my CRT tv. It only has one s video input. Does anyone have a S-video switcher you could recommend? I'm getting very tired of going behind my TV. Thank you!

Any component inputs? You could at least offload the snes or Saturn with a component cable and only have to s-video the other two.

I've heard so many different things from most of them are crap to you can get a random ass one like General Electric and it will be fine. My rule on switches has always been to get ones from the pro space or powered + high original msrp. I never got that into Svideo, but the only thing I ever found satisfactory were those huge extron matrices. Shinybow makes really good crap, but they are expensive so I never did try one. There are so many more good options for composite and component.

tl;dr: Just try a random $8-10 shipped switch off eBay that isn't from China and see if that is good enough for you.

I have a GameStop branded Component Switch that also can do S-Video, it takes in 4 inputs.

Shoot me a PM if that interests you.
