    Cat here,

    I don't know if in England or in your country there is RadioShack (a chain of stores that sells electronic components here in the US, Mexico, and other Latin American countries, I don't know if there is one in europe since I've never been there), but I know that in England there is the Maplin Electronic Store. They should have a switchbox for audio/video. You can buy it there.

    If you don't want that and you want some simple switches, then I can recommend you an old design that I have that uses TTLs, and analogic integrated circuits.

    If your interested, PM me or e-mail me so I can e-mail it to you. This circuit works well and is compatible with any video format (PAL/NTSC).

    Cheers

    Catrevilla

    How about a 2 (or more) way fully wired scart switcher. Then use a scart - 6 phonos for each in and the out.

    I know the quality of the scart cables won't be up to the highest quality Audio cable ... but would be worth a try ... could always later get some audio cable wired upto the scarts connectors.
