Simple Y connectors for two composite sources to a single output?

I need to connect two composite sources (DVD player and digital cable
converter) to a Panasonic projector with a single composite input.
CablesToGo.com has a electronic composite video switch unit with four
input sources and two outputs.  It runs $150.00.

Is it possible to simply connect the three composite RCA cables from
the two sources to three Y cables that are then connected to the
projector cable?

Or does the electronic switch provide feedback protection, etc. that
the Ys would not?

Thanks....

Ive used a video splitter like this: http://tinyurl.com/fxjmf or

They work fine for average setups.
