    I am now up to four consoles and I am getting fed up of switching the scarts over. Can anyone recommend a good Scart switcher? I bought a Vivanco one and it's crap.

    Many thanks.

    Quattro+! Bloody expensive but you'll never have to touch your scarts again. Ever.

    I like the nice mechanical reassuringly robust scart data switch boxes from lektropacks.

    Nicely shielded fully wired and work in both directions 2 into 1 , 3 into 1 available. I'm just about to trade up one of my 2 into 1 boxes for a 3into 1 for the imminent arrival of my Xbox.

    Let me know what you think of the Quattro+. Always interested in opinions on this piece of kit.

    Unfortunately not Iancity. I imagine Alan can afford a better home cinema set-up than me.

    I too have a Quattro+. It switches ITV Digital, PS2 and Dreamcast into my 10HT projector. The commands are now loaded in the relevant buttons on my Pronto, so I forget I'm even switching between these devices.

    Also, the picture quality is very good. I can't notice any degradation even on a 7' wide screen!

    I'm even thinking about a second one of these for my TV in another room!

    Mine arrived earlier this week and I connected it up to the Gamecube, PS2 and Dreamcast last night. I'll be adding in the X Box next week. Works like a dream - thanks for the recommendation pointon.

    By the way, received fantastic service from Lektropaks.
