Product Description

Style: Old Style

HDMI switches expand the number of available HDMI ports on a high definition television allowing connection of cable boxes, Blu-ray players, and game consoles. A side benefit is that cable clutter is also eliminated by running a single HDMI cable to your HDTV from a switch and relocating the HDMI ports to a concealed location. The problem with most HDMI switches is that you have to either get up to push a button, or hunt for the remote control, to switch sources. The true mark of any great switching component is an ability to perform its function and remain transparent in its operation. This automatic HDMI switch is a plug-and-play away from offering everything you are looking for in an HDMI switch. Select a single output from up to three devices for signal delivery to your HDTV. Smart operation provides complete control for connect-and-forget operation. Powering on a device gives it output priority over the other devices. By powering down the device in use, output priority is returned to the last powered on device. Note: Auto switch function only works for components that do not output continuous voltage over HDMI port when turned off.

It does not automatically switch when a device is turned on or off.

I tried to connect a DVD Player and my HD Cable Box with my new Samsung HDTV, but it does not work.

It's not worth the hassle of returning, it's just a garbage product.

I purchased this HDMI Auto Switch last month, and it works just perfectly. I connected my TiVo HD DVR and DVD recorder up to this switch and into my HD TV, so that both of my components could share a single HDMI connection, and it works like a charm. Anytime that I want to watch a DVD, I only power on the DVD recorder, and the switcher automatically switches from the TiVo DVR to the DVD recorder. When I power off the DVD recorder, the switcher automatically switches back to the DVR, just like the product description on this Amazon.com site states.

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.

The 3-1 HDMI smart auto-switch works great as long as you understand the limitations of the "smart" feature. The device will take 3 HDMI outputs and connect them to one HDMI input with the attached connector and cable. There is a pushbutton switch on the top which will manually trigger the switch move to the next HDMI input.

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.

My system has 3 hdmi devices feeding through this switcher into a receiver: two 720p and one 1080p. Both 720p inputs work fine, but the 1080p does not work through the switch (it flashes video with no sound). The 1080p source does work when directly connected to my receiver. Rotating the inputs does not help.

This is the product for you if you need a cheap but reliable solution to lack of HDMI inputs on your HDTV. No more getting up, turning everything off, and swapping cables back there.
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...

Works as advertized. Perfect if you need multiple HDMI inputs with auto switching ability. Some electronics do not always switch entirely off so this may confuse it's selection process. Not the fault of this device, however.

This device is not what I need. The unit creates strong signal noise which transfers to the screen of my HDTV. I was able to prevent this, but running one HDMI cable behind an sheet of aluminum and the other cable in front of the aluminum sheet. This should not be necessary for the unit to work properly. It was not the cables either, because the manual switch I replaced it with didn't need the sheet of aluminum while still using the same cables. Additional observations are that the light on the switch is too bright for low light level TV viewing. It is very distracting. The sound from my DVR and DVD player come through half the time, but I had to restart the DVR and DVD systems several times to bring sound back when I would lose it. If you are buying this for automatic switching, I would recommend looking for a more expensive device. I seldom rate merchandise poorly, but this one really disappointed me.

The switch works as described; however, the technical details are not accurate. This item is listed as a category 2 with a rating of 10.2 Gbps. The clamshell packaging clearly states "High performance up to 2.5 Gbps."

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.
