Question about StarTech.com 4-to-1 Composite/S-Video and RCA Audio Switch (SVID410IR) KVM Switch
MY tv ONLY HAS A f CONNECTOR FOR THE COMPOSITE INPUT AND i NEED TO HAVE A MEANS OF GETTING COMPOSITE OUT OF THE SEITCHER
Hi, If your TV has only an F input connector, then chances are that it can only accept an RF (TV/Cable) signal. On the other hand your video/signal source puts out a composite video signal (presumably with audio likewise). What you need is an interface converter or more commonly called "RF Box or RF Modulator". This is a device that embeds your audio/video signal into an RF signal transmitting at a TV channel (commonly 3 or 4). These devices are commercially available. You have to specify whether stereo or mono and what color system is being used in your country such as NTSC, PAL, Secam etc. A fine example is RadioShack's RF Modulator Model: 15-2526, Catalog #: 15-2526 (http://www.radioshack.com). A work around is to use an old VCR where you can plug into its RCA Audio/Video INput your signal source and connect its RF out to the F connector of your TV via a short RG59 Coaxial cable terminated both ends with FP-5 connectors.. You have to select either 3 or 4 (as the case may be) in your TV and set your VCR to VTR operations. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turn up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
