Product Description

Why connect and reconnect cables to manually switch between devices? Get rid of the cable hassle, and add flexibility to your home theater system with the 3-Play selector. Plug in this switch and quickly add three TOSLINK, three s-video, and three RCA composite audio/video ports to your system. Great for connecting three of the following: DVD players, satellite receivers, video game consoles or digital video recorders - any devices that have dual channel analog or TOSLINK audio with s-video or composite video.

This is an ideal solution for the a/v enthusiast who wants to take full control of an ever-expanding system. Use the wireless remote control or the three front panel input selector buttons to quickly change sources.

Please Note: This unit does not convert s-video to composite video, or composite video to s-video; the output signal is always the same as the original input signal. For your convenience, the following replacement parts are available for this item: Item #98009 - AC/DC Adapter, and Item #98014 - IR Wireless Remote Control. To order a replacement part, please call us.

I purchased this unit to split video for a monitoring station. I thought it had an output for coaxil, but it did not. Once I got it hooked up via some spare component cables I had in storage, the unit works beautifully. Love the remote for less wear and tear on the unit itself.

This product does what it is intended to do, but the response to the remote control is flaky. Sometimes it responds properly; sometimes it does not respond without multiple button presses. The manual switches work just fine, but a remote should work if not every time then most of the time. Not sure whether this is a characteristic performance or an anomoly with this particular unit.

    I use this switch to select between two DVRs and a VCR. It performs well.

    Service and delivery comments:

    The remote had some problems, probably defective switch button(s). It was replaced immediately and the new remote works perfectly.

    Comments about 3-Play™ S-Video + Composite Video + TOSLINK® Digital Audio High Performance Selector Switch:

    I bought this unit to be able to connect my blue ray, satellite box, and video game console into my home theater. This is the best wiring option to obtain maximum sound quality. Most home theaters do not allow for 3 optical inputs. I found this remote unit for [$] less than a 2X1 box on a different site.

      Audio selector took less than 5 minutes to install. I now have 3 digital audio inputs going to my Bose Lifestyle 28 System and the entire setup works flawlessly. I simply use the provided remote to switch between inputs and I can switch between my cable box, PS3 and Xbox 360. 5 stars for this product.

            A:

            If all of the source devices have a composite video output and the TV has a composite video and audio input, this would work for you. It will allow you to switch between the 3 source devices to the one input on the TV.

          Q:

          Can I connect an audio source via the RCA input and have it come out via the Optical Audio output into my sound system?

          • CUSTOMER CARE

            A:

            This switch is not a converter. It will only send the analog RCA audio input to the RCA analog output. The same goes for the video signal and optical. If an optical signal is sent to the switch, it is output only through the optical output.
