New Automatic S-Video Switcher


Got an unexpected surprise from UPS today. I ordered this on the weekend, and had no indication that it had been I wasn't expecting it today...given that yesterday was a holiday for some people (there are no holidays...or weekends...when you are unemployed :..( )

A few days ago, I was wondering why a program I was watching from downconverted HDTV seemed almost black and white....just the hint of color. Wasn't until I noticed that the commercial advance indicator was also affected, that I figured that it was something wrong in my connections.

Eventually, I found that temporarily switching to another source and back would clear up the problem....temporarily. :**:

As it happened, the ReplayTV I was watching was the one that directly connects to the Sima SVS-4 (rather than the others that go through Sony SB-V55A boxes).

So, I guess that means the Sima SVS-4 4-input/2-output automatic S-video switcher was dying. I had acquired it used from eBay, and it replaced a Sima SVS-4D that also had problems. I thought about scoping out eBay for another such unit, but decided that I would probably prefer something new this time.

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
