    If you wanted it to be a manual switching design then a DIY should be possible although wouldn't be an easy job - presumably you can get hold of and design the relevant PCB?

    Much of the "logic" isn't too complicated and may even be unnecessary depending on how much you're planning to switch. For example, it would be wise to leave out the auto-detect pins and the return feeds although you then obviously lose auto-detect and potentially widescreen switching too.

    If you're planning an automated unit then I would suggest staying well clear! :eek:

    i would prefur manual switching and as for the pcb if i was given a design i could build it as i have all the uv exposure boxes and relevent chemicals.
    and what would you need to do if you wanted to record from 1 device to another on a manual unit
    thanks for your help so far eviljohn2 any thing else would be greatly appreciated :D

    if your going to go down the manual route it may be easier to buy a cheap printer/parallel switch from a computer fair and hack it.

    good point, well i did make a parallel switch once many moons ago and used rotary switchewhich was just a front with a long turner on the back. then with waffers you could just add on to make another connection, i had a quick look at maplins and couldnt find them not sure if they are still being made. Probably all digitally done now
