Power Adapters 

The main goal here is to recommend supplies that perform decently well while still being affordable. We still highly recommend you use the OEM adapter that shipped with your console. A more detailed discussion can be found at this blog post.

Component Switchbox Alternatives

A unique feature of our SNES & Genesis YPbPr cables is that they are designed such that if you "split" the component input of a TV using Y-adapters, you can connect two HD Retrovision cables to the same port without degradation. This effectively acts as an auto-switching function. You can't have both consoles powered on at the same time or you'll get garbage on the screen. IMPORTANT: This only works properly with HD Retrovision cables and not with other generic component devices.
