    I've bitten the bullet and put in an order for a JS Tech RGB->VGA converter, mainly cus my new dirt cheap gamecube doesn't do S-video...

    I'm going to need to switch Sky+, PS2 & GC into the VGA converter and then to my Panny series 5.

    I have heard that the £10 Argos manual switch box does a pretty good job. The question is, how good a job?

    I'd prefer not to go to the bother of a quintro as I don't need auto switching and I have limited power sockets available. Will I regret it if I go with a manual switch?

    Cheers,
    Tim

    Argos is a manual switch, so there's no loss in quality. It's full frequency, unlike some electronic solutions. I'm at a friend's house just now watching TV via the Argos solution and it's a very efficacious solution. There are electronics solutions, which should also be considered, but I wouldn't hesitate on the Argos solution.

    All the best,

    Dr John Sim.

    I have had two of these and do notice interference that is not present when devices are connected directly to my tv.
