For some month now, I'm investing some money to make my gaming setup better instead of buying Zelda games ;).
Since forever I was playing my games on my old 19" CRT with only composite video and mono sound (LOL).
So I've got a 46" plasma, and I decided to get an XRGB-3 so my 240p game show up properly. Also I wanted to use RGBS as connection for all my 240p system, so to avoid switching all the time the cables I've got an Extron MVX 84 matrix switcher. This way everything is connected to the D2 RGB input on back of the XRGB.
What is cool about a matrix switcher is that this allow me to bypass the XRGB for my PS2. I only use the ps2 RGB out through XRGB for PS1 games otherwise I use YUV directly to my TV for 480i/480p & 1080i signals.
Since the Extron switch use VGA and 3.5mm input I modified existing SCART cable to put instead a VGA and a 3.5mm audio connector at the end.
I'm using two APC P11VT3 power bar. This is perfect for older system since each have 6 plug for big wall adapter and also space for 5 conventional power cord.
I'm planning to add a bookshelf with some drawer so I can store all my game and accessory within one TV Bench. I'm using Ikea's BESTA storage solution. So it's easy to expand. Currently I have only the two lower frame. I will also add some glass door to avoid dust cleaning ;).
