How to Hook Up Multiple Game Systems to Your TV

How to Hook Up Multiple Game Systems to Your TV

Quick-and-to-the-point tutorial on how you can connect more than one gaming console to a TV. I talk about (coaxial), composite, s-video, component, and HDMI connections and how to incorporate switchboxes. My other, relevant videos:

In this video, I mention two ways to connect you systems to you TV (or computer possibly). One is to just plug them into the multiple jacks on the back of the TV, and then toggle between them. The other way is to purchase a switchbox that lets you toggle between multiple systems. I display diagrams demonstrating how it is usually done.

  13. You know a good HDMI Switcher is pretty affordable?

  14. When I used a hdmi switcher on my ps4, it would keep flickering when I opened a game. The ps3 has a little lag during high frame moments. And the Wii U and switch usually work perfectly. I just think that the ps4s graphics are too powerful for some switch boxes. I also recently had to get an 8 switch AV box from amazon, since my other 3, four- switch boxes were going out and looked ugly anyway. And my tv only has 3 hdmi ports, everything is taken and I have to go behind it every time to switch between stuff. I am trying to find a better solution, maybe some HDMI switch boxes can send video better than others? But anyways, great video showing different solutions and ideas!

  15. thanks for the help bro i appreciate it

  28. no SCART?! lol

  29. Does anyone know of a UK rack mount power supply?

  30. have you/can you hook up the old systems to be able to play on either TV? like i would love to play NES on an crt for most of the games but id also love to hit a switch and play Tecmo super bowl on an 60"

  31. I recently picked up an Extron Crosspoint Ultra 128 matrix switcher to achieve everything you've shown (minus HDMI) and it is a beast. 12 inputs and 8 outputs. While it isn't plug and play, it does work wonderfully when you've acquired all the adapters and cables you need.

    I highly recommend this over any other method due to the all-in-one nature of these switchers, and the ability to so many screens.
