    4 input/1 output component video switcher, learning IR type (use your original remote), coax digital to toslink optical conversion.
    9/10 condition.
    50 dollars US, plus shipping.

    I'm finally all HDMI.

    I can attest to the quality of this switcher, I had the same model for several years.

    All HDMI over here. Though I miss the days of custom-making my coax/component cables.

    Ah yes. I just remember using WTB for ends and maybe Cardas cable in between? I haven't made a cable since 2005.

    I still have at least a few Canare component cables. In the old house before I finished the basement, I chopped apart a column in the grand room and ran Canare cables down, over the basement ceiling and to the other side of the room.

    My component cables were always linear crimped (not radial) RCA ensds onto RG-6 or RG59 dependent on how flexible they needed to be.
    If RG-6 was good enough for a 2.0 plus Ghz satellite signal, it would be cood enough for component video.
