    Hey all I have a simple question... would I be able to send a video signal (composite) to each relay per camera? Reason being is that I only have one video input but need to be able to use 2 cameras (not that the same time, though).

    I have my drawing that I sketched out of what I *think* the hookup may need to look like.

    I wasn't sure if a relay would work since I was thinking the relay itself would mess with the video signal when the magnet engages the pin inside.

    I will be using this type of relay with an arduino:

    Any help would be great!

    Sorry but I can't decipher your schematics. You don't need two relays. One SPST relay (as shown) should do the trick. The relays on your board probably are SPDT models.
