    hi,

    i have a number of old gaming consoles (nes, snes, megadrive, master system + others!!) that connect through a normal aerial connection on the tv. I have a bunch of switches (2 to 1) daisy chained together so that i can switch between the consoles without having to unplug any wires for whichever console i want to use. I wondered if there was any type of switch box that would allow me to replace all of these individual switches? It really is a mess!! I have had a search but not found anything yet so any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    I have only seen expensive 4 to 1 coaxial switches sold by PC and networking suppliers; these cost about £100 and use BNC connectors - so adaptors would be required to standard TV-type IEC (AKA Belling Lee).
