I need a scart cable, all 21 pins wired, with an inline on/off switch. Does anyone know where I can get one?
I bought a two-way switchable lead from Maplins thinking that if I switched from one to the other with nothing connected to the second one that this would achieve the same effect as pulling the connection out, which is what I'm doing now. It does not work though as it is not fully wired to all 21 pins. Obviously intended for a special application.
If you nip down to Adsa they have scart connection blocks with switchable outputs. Two models were in, a basic dual output and a three output model. Bought the later as the better half bought me a DVD recorder for xmas (God bless her ;-) I reckon it should do the job.
I have just bought a masterplug electronic scart switchbox from argos, 29.99 reduced to 19.99. It has four scart connectors and switches automatically to the one that is powered. I have dvd and vcr connected to the tv, but it will also accept a satelite or dvd box as well.
Incidentally, my best mate, who runs an independent audio/visual/appliances outlet, tells me that contrary to what he originally believed, the high quality gold-plated Scart and similar cables really do bring a dramatic improvement when used with high end LCD, plasma and large screen TV and audio products.
