guess I misunderstood a 2-way switch........

catherinetJune 29, 2009

I have a converter box, VCR and DVR. I only have an antenna.

I want to be able to use both the VCR and DVR at different times. I've tried to use a splitter, but it degrades the signal too much. So I bought an AB switch, thinking I could put it coming out of the converter box and then one cable to the VCR and one to the DVR, but after I bought it, I realized that its made to be able to switch from cable to antenna, so there are 2 "Ins" and 1 "out", whereas I need 1 in and 2 outs. I don't think I can just turn it around, right?

Is there some other kind of switch that would work in this situation?

Yes, it's just a switch, connect the way you want.
