    So... electrolytic or tantalum for the polarized high capacitance decoupling capacitors ?

    This is an impressive project but I must ask, is the SCART analog video connector not totally obsolete and there is no new equipment being produced by the main large manufacturers using it? Most TVs that used the SCART connector also used the CRT and were typically an analog video system. That has been confined to history the world over with the new flatscreen LCD a digital system and uses the HDMI connector standard.

    It is totally obsolete, I agree with you at hundred percent. This project is mainly for personal use, as I own a small number of retro game consoles, this would ease me their use because I would not need to unplug / find / replug the SCART cable of a console each time I want to use it (the flat screen with HDMI I own ( ;) )does only have 1 SCART input of course)

    I also chose to start with this one, because I have other projects in mind, which are using non obsolete features but are also harder to make. This switch circuit is quite simple on the paper, so I can make my hands on it before going to stronger stuff.

    Anyways, thanks for your interest :)
