The DVD, Antenna,Sat switch who makes it?

I'm having trouble with the switch that take the signals from the outside antenna, DVD player, satellite and sends them to the other various inputs. There is no name on the switcher. Does anyone out there know who the manufacturer is or for that matter any manufacturer of those type of switches.

Winegard. Just ripped mine out and built a new panel. Updated to hdmi throughout. Only use coax for ota and cg cable. I have my bomb just sitting around collecting dust.

Thanks for the Winegard name. I found it's no longer available. It's replaced by the Quest QS53D. The Winegard has 12v going to it but it's not passing the DVD or antenna signals. I hope my extended service contract with CornerStone covers it.
Thanks for the feedback.

Most people that have problems with this unit will just run all of the inputs straight to the TV and use their remotes to change the "Input" on the TV.

The model # should be on a label on the unit. Get it and I'll check if mine matches.

Winegard used to make them but discontinued with the upgrade to HDTV.

You can get a somewhat simpler box from many sources.

Winegard's BOMB provided power to the roof top antenna (I will tell you the best work around for that) and included a modulator for the DVD, (Likewise)

If you get a generic matrix switch (Such as used in many video stores) you can get a modulator (They make them for DVD (low cost) and HDTV sources like blue ray (High cost) to replace that one.

Then for the Rooftop antenna... use a Sensar Pro to both provide power to the antenna and a few other rather nice features as well.

If you only have one cable running to the bedroom TV, how would you switch it? Not sure I follow all of this but am upgrading my front TV and would like to simplify things if I could.
