Spectrum Projects and Microcom used to sell PAL switchers just for that 
purpose. Rather than that though, I programmed a custom PAL (back in the 
day) that used one of the unused Pal pins - if the pin were high - it was 
CoCo 1/2 and low=CoCo 3 :), so a switch was hooked to switch the level of 
that pin.
