        Comments about RadioShack High Isolation A/B Switch:

        I needed to swap cable tv signals between the standard line up and an augmented one offered via an HD digital transport adapter (DAT). Unfortunately some channels in the standard lineup were not available using the DAT and vice versa.

        To be able to view all channels on the different services meant disconnecting cable feeds and attaching another one. Very tedious as it was all behind the tv.

        The A/B switch easily resolved all the aggravation. It was simple, clean and neat to install and now permits convenient switching between the two different signals at the push of the A or B button.

        An A/B switch is commonly used with multiple VCRs, DVDs, antenna&cable reception, more than one set top box etc.

        Comments about RadioShack High Isolation A/B Switch:

        The A/B
        switch seems to function if I switch the cable tv input signal to one side or the other.

        However the splitter I bought at the Radio Shack store, that was supposed to divide the signal between the A side and B side instead provides a VHF and UHF signal rendering the A/B Switch nonfunctional.

        So the product I bought is not useful at present.

                  It does the job, but for the price, it should last at least a year. Have tried this product twice but no more. Will buy a different brand.

                    The whole concept is great, however, I purchased this product to make life easier. How frustrating to hook it up and it doesn't work, at all, right out of the package!

                          Comments about RadioShack High Isolation A/B Switch:

                          I bought 2 of these for my mother to make it easier to switch from cable to dvd player and cable to MSNTV.
                          After six months the first one broke and a month later the second one broke.
                          It is not a very good design. I bought cheap A/B switches from a discount store that work great!
