    I was thinking of getting an AV switcher for my 2 N64s and GC so I don't need to keep swapping cables around but I was wondering if I could just use splitter cables instead and just not power more than one at a time. It wouldn't send signals to the powered off consoles or lose quality trying to split the signal to them would it?
