Send input from one pin to the output of another pin.

I want to know if it is possible to redirect the input of one of the pins and send it straight back out of another pin. No modifying.

The input is a video signal. I intend to have two pins that receive a video signal and I want to switch which video signal is sent to an output pin. I plan to switch using an RC transmitter and a timer capturing the PWM signal. The output is connected to a video transmitter on my quadcopter.

If so can you give an example on how to do this mentioning which pins to use and in what mode.

Thanks.

Assuming that you talk about an (analog) video signal of a few MHz bandwith: PyBoard cannot handle this. You need a special video switching circuit for that purpose, like a LT6555 chip, which then could be controlled by PyBoard.
Best Regards
