This kit contains all parts necessary to bypass the Atari 5200 4-port auto switchbox.  Theory and circuit modifications are on the Atari 5200 wiki page.

With this modification in place, a conventional switch box or direct RF adapter can be used with the 4 port Atari 5200.  We carry a few different direct RF adapters if needed, please see the related products!
