Hopefully some of you will know what i am talking about. I have an old atari with an old AV switch. The atari plugs into the switch as well as the TV cable, then the switch is plugged into the TV and you have to move a little thing back and forth to go from TV to the atari, anyone know where i can find one. I thought maybe radio shack, but not sure what to look for.

Radio Shack should have a replacement that looks pretty much like the original.

You can also buy a cable at Radio Shack that has an RCA style plug on one end, and a coax plug on the other (cheapest option) and hook it straight to the TV, or to an A-B switch (also available at Radio Shack). An old(er)-timer working at the store should be able to show you a couple different options, and keep you on budget.

isn't it basically a normal old RF switch? i use one on an SNES. i'm sure radio shack has them. mine doesn't need a manual switch though, it goes automatically when you turn on the SNES.

Has anyone seen the Atari Joysticks that now have about 10 Atari games on them that directly plug into the A/V inputs on the TV or VCR? Thought it was kinda cool, but very limited on games.
