Hey guys, just wondering if this is possible? I think the RF switch on the SNES is broken, and was wondering if an N64 RCA cable could be used instead? Any help would be great, thanks :)

What might work for you is a set of rca cables some sort of reverse rf modulator. I worked at radio shack when I was 19 back in 00-01, used to sell them to alot of people that didnt have RCA jacks on their TV's but needed to hook up a PS2/Xbox.

I would head to a place like radio shack, they would probably be able to help you out with what you need As i believe the N64 has a proprietary connector, to the back of the system and I dont remember if there were multiple ways an snes could be hooked up other than the rf switch.
EDIT: Score!

This is most likely what you will need

an RF demodulator.

Im really not seeing them for very cheap online, looks like you can probably pick up a whole new snes system on ebay for cheaper.

Yes the cables are interchangeable. Exact same port on the back of the systems. Just checked on mine just to be sure and the N64 cable fits perfectly into the back of the SNES.
