This switch is similar to the gscart switch and shares the same principle; effortless automatic switching with best possible video quality and HD video support. This is a combination Composite/ Component switch which means that it can be used for both Composite and Component signal switching simultaneously.
If you plan to use composite functionality:
TVs with shared Composite / Y RCA plug (Yellow / Green): connect the composite source to the green input and connect the green output to the yellow/ green plug of your TV. Depending on your TV model you may have to use a remote to switch to Composite/ Component mode.
TVs with independent Composite yellow and green RCA ports: connect the audio RCA outputs to TV in the usual way but use the additional separate RCA lead for composite (Yellow) output. You will likely have to use the TV remote to switch to composite/ component mode. If you have separate stereo audio inputs for component/ composite TV inputs you will have to use additional 1:2 RCA splitters (not provided).
There may be other setup variations we are not aware of, if you need assistance please open a ticket and we will do our best to help you with your set-up.
Full audio / video input protection has been added to minimize the damage when incompatible equipment is connected. Please take into account that protection won’t make all the faulty cases work, it’s there just to protect the hardware.
