More details on the Sony SB-V40S
General Overview: This unit allows you to feed up to 4 stereo audio and video sources to one unit (normally one television which has A/V inputs) and to connect a second device (such as a portable recorder or amplified loudspeakers) to the front AUDIO only output (stereo minijack). The two outputs are always live; there are four switches on the top of the unit which allow you to select which of the four inputs you want to use. Since this is a passive device (no AC or batteries) the input which you select is indicated by a red mark (non-illuminated) which appears when you select the input.
Typical Applications: This unit is a perfect solution for people who own a receiver or amplifier with no video switching or without enough video switching (or with no S-video capability).
Please note the following:
- Cables are not provided, so they must be purchased separately
- Placing the unit directly on top of a TV could cause electromagnetic interference; if so, simply move the cables and/or switch box
- S-video signals will only be output when a corresponding S-video signal is connected to the input (for example, if you connect a standard VHS VCR to input 1 using composite video, only composite video (not S-video) will be output from Output #1.
- Only output #1 should be used for dubbing or editing, since recording levels will drop if you use both Output #1 and Output #2 simultaneously
