I HIGHLY recommend this product to anyone and everyone out there who have multiple devices with an HDMI connection. The great advantage to having this HDMI switcher is that the user does NOT have to physically get up and push any buttons on the switcher just to use one of their HDMI connected components like their DVD recorder, DVR, etc. This HDMI Auto Switch sure beats the heck out of other HDMI switchers that require the user to physically get up and PUSH the buttons on the switcher just to use a different HDMI connected device.
To all out there with multiple HDMI connected devices, this product is an AWESOME buy for YOU.
**UPDATE as of December 1, 2011 - I have now had this same HDMI switcher for the last 3 years ever since I originally purchased it in December 2008, and the switcher still works great to this day. I have definitely gotten my monies' worth with this switcher for the last 3 years.
Why would you even need manual mode? The "smart" of the switch can detect when a connected device turns the HDMI signal on or off and automatically switch to the next HDMI input. However, not all devices turn off the HDMI signal when they are not in use. TiVo and Apple TV, for example, appear to never turn off the HDMI output. Some Blu-Ray players and other devices may also output HDMI even when they appear "off" to the user. I am happy to report that you can have one "always on" device attached and it still works well. However if you connected more than one it would not work properly.
Given this one limitation, I would highly recommend this device for anyone who is short of an HDMI port or two in their home theater. It's much cheaper than a new TV or A/V Receiver.
Works exactly as advertised. I have a (few years old) OPPO DVD upconvert player and issued COMCAST HD DVR plugged into the adapter.
Turning on the DVD player automatically switches the input to DVD. Turning off the DVD player automatically switches back to TV. Couldn't be simpler. No problems yet.
Not sure why you would need to spend $50-150 on an HDMI switch box...
I chose this model because my PS3 will get the best hookup at anything over 6.68 Gbps, and my current HDMI cable is rated high enough to give me the best quality image and sound. I was therefore quite disappointed to learn that this switch will not transmit as well as my cable alone.
Otherwise, the switch does a great job of transferring between my various components automatically. I just wish that it ran at the speed that was listed.

it was working really well but on occasion it does this weird thing where it doesn't output the video to my monitorPublished 7 hours ago by scrapple
Works like a champ, and out lived the original TV I bought it for. Sometimes you have to get off the couch to manually switch inputs with a push of the button. Read morePublished 2 days ago by Tiny

Sure it works as a single extension cable but..... Here's a grave safety concern.... Unlike other HDMI switches or hubs that use a power pack to activate the Hub, there's a reason... Read morePublished 2 days ago by Astute BookWorm
