Hi and welcome!

You don't need a switch box to connect your 2600. Instead, I'd recommend an RCA to Coax adapter like the one linked (for reference). With this you can hook it up directly to your TV cable line in.

The RCA to coax adapter is definatly the way to go,

If on a modern flat screen TV, you will need it to have a coax input and with the console powered on you may have to do an analog-channel search

The console may or may not have a channel select switch (2 or 3)

if TV has no coax input an old VCR may be needed

There are composite modification kits available to make the 2600 work on more modern TV's https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=m570.l1313&_nkw=atari+2600+mod&_sacat=0&LH_TitleDesc=0&_odkw=atari+kiosk&_osacat=0

Keep us posted on your progress 😉
