gcomp Automatic 8:2 Component / Composite Switch
Connect all your Component / Composite devices at once and enjoy automatic switching when you turn on the system you are ready to play! 
SUPERGUN WARNING: Any SUPERGUN conversion (or arcade mods in general) will permanently damage the switch. This damage is easy to detect and will void the warranty, so please make sure you do NOT attempt to use this product with a Supergun conversion. 

This switch is similar to the gscart switch and shares the same principle; effortless automatic switching with best possible video quality and HD video support. This is a combination Composite/ Component switch which means that it can be used for both Composite and Component signal switching simultaneously.

If you plan to use composite functionality:

TVs with shared Composite / Y RCA plug (Yellow / Green): connect the composite source to the green input and connect the green output to the yellow/ green plug of your TV. Depending on your TV model you may have to use a remote to switch to Composite/ Component mode.

TVs with independent Composite yellow and green RCA ports: connect the audio RCA outputs to TV in the usual way but use the additional separate RCA lead for composite (Yellow) output. You will likely have to use the TV remote to switch to composite/ component mode. If you have separate stereo audio inputs for component/ composite TV inputs you will have to use additional 1:2 RCA splitters (not provided).

Full audio / video input protection has been added to minimize the damage when incompatible equipment is connected. Please take into account that protection won’t make all the faulty cases work, it’s there just to protect the hardware.

Features (v5.2):

  • 8 inputs
  • 2 outputs
  • Simultaneous output support
  • Design with focus on video quality
  • Automatic switching based on sync (Y / Composite)

The micro USB port is a is surface mounted and if you apply too much force or step on it, it might detach. This is not a defect.  Due to the fragile nature of this port we may be able to repair the port if you accidentally damage it.  Contact [email protected] if you run into an issue with your micro USB port.
