Thanks!  Radio Shack had everything I needed, but I forgot to pick up a
TV/Game switcher.  Anyway, it works.  I have yet to test it with the
Supercharger.  It needs a lot of cleaning... I've taken old computers apart
and cleaned them before, but I don't know how to make the switches work
better.  They seem to have a lot of grit in them.  I'm hoping I can just use
some WD-40.  Any suggestions?

Thanks again!  (I'm on my way to testing Reflex on the real thing!)
