SCART Control Centre

Connect 4 devices to a single SCART socket | Ideal for use with DVD, Satellite, Cable, Freeview or anything with a SCART connection | Record from one device and watch another at the same time | Automatic switching | Program this switch to work with your existing remote control for manual control | Change devices from the comfort of you chair | S-Video, phone, stereo audio and SCART on input 4 and the output. | RGB, S-Video and widescreen compatible

Many TVs have a limited amount of connections available, often only one. This means in todays world of satellite, cable TV, Freeview, VCRs and DVDs there is a lack of connections to connect everything up. This clever SCART switcher allows the connection of up to 4 devices into one SCART input.
Features automatic switching so you wont even realise it is connected. It achieves this by sensing which device was switched on last, automatically changing the channel accordingly. For more bespoke setups, the switch allows you to program a button on almost any existing remote to switch the device manually or you can simply press the buttons on the front of the box. You can also watch one device and record another.

Hi,

Bought one of these Yesterday as I have been looking for an auto scart switcher for some time under £20. Looks nicely packaged and gave it a good trial last night, have experienced some problems.

Good Points:
- Looks well built.
- Fairly compact.
- Internal power supply.
- Can be controlled from remote.
- Excellent video quality.
- RGB capable from all four ports (although manual states input 3 does not)
- Seperate stereo audio and video out phonos
- Seperate stereo audio amd video in phonos (input 3 only)

Bad Points:
- Remote control not included.
- On/Off switch on front panel is pointless as it has hard switch on back as well.
- Can not manually select between rgb and video inputs.
- Will not select rgb signal unless the scart select pin is wired from the input -device.
- Very poor audio quality (might have faulty unit).
- Very awkward to learn from remote, forces you to all ten of the buttons.
- Does not remember last input selected when powered up.

Problems
- Have to allways press on switch on front panel (or remote) when powered up, really annoying for me.
- Selecting chanels from remote does not always work, have to select from front panel.
- Other buttons on my remote would also select certain channels, and I could not find a way to clear this. Forcing unit to learn again did not resolve it.
- Audio quality from phono outputs really bad with a lot of interference produced by the box itself. Maybe a faulty unit, but I think it is more likely to be poor quality or poor design in the audio switching circuit.

The audio quality is big problem for me, so will probably be returning mine. I might try another box incase it is a fault with this one. If you are not concerned about audio quality and remote control, this is a good buy.

Would be interested to hear about others experience using this box.

Regards,
Paul.

Thats a good price for the oneforall one edi I think they were initially around the £40-£50 mark, at £15 it's a bargain for an autoswitching powered one anything cheaper would be a manual switching unit.
