I have bought freeview box and kids use TV for PS2.Where is the best place to acquire a scart-scart X2 lead which will enable simultaneous use of both-or at least save the hassle of reconnection?I have thought of Maplin but someone out there may know of a better supplier.TIA

If you have Maplins in your are then I think they are the best bet, if the guys there are anything like here you will get some excellent advice, and it will save waiting for it! and probably just as cheap after p&p.

Maplins are very good but they usually are expensive I find.

Be careful to get a fully wired cable. Sometimes SCARTS are only connected with the essential wiring to provide a composite TV and audio signal i.e. three or four pins in use whereas a fully wired setup has all 21 pins connected.

More expensive, yes but more likely to be able to do what you want.

You may find that simultaneous use is not practical, as the TV will switch to the latest device turned on.
