need RCA input splitter cable for XBOX and DVD recorder

by tennisman888 / December 7, 2006 9:09 AM PST

I have a problem. I have an older (but good) JVC 27" tv. I also have an XBOX and a DVD recorder. Now I have to constantly unhook the xbox to use the recorder and vice versa. I would like a cable that has the standard red,yellow,white connections into the TV, with two "splitter" female ends (r,y,w) that will allow me to use either one (not at the same time obviously) and the TV will recognize the input signal. I don't want to keep unplugging.

They have all the types of splitters you could ever need. You should see the back of my home entertainment units, looks like a real rats nest, splitters galore.

Thanks to all. I was thinking a cable instead of a switch. I'll try to find one cheaper on ebay.
