Hi all,,,
Just got a new pc, and have decided to connect my playstation up to it, as i dont play it as ofton as i should, mainly cos i am always on the pc.
But,,, the connector i have,, with the s-vid, and audio connections on the end, arent suitable.
I already have a sky+ box and vcr connected to the pcs tv card,,, and my soundcard is full because of my 5:1 surround sound speakers,,,,,so am a bit lost really,,, :whistling:

How on earth do i get it connected up ???? once connected,,my media pc will be complete....

Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.

You need a switchbox. Nearly all video game stores carry them, as well as most electronics stores. Just make sure you get one with the inputs you need.

The switchbox will sit between your PC's input and all of your sources. When you want to use one of them, you hit a button on the front of the box and it will switch to that source. The connections you will need depend on your sources and your PC's input.
