Some do not auto-switch, and this alone is worth the asking price. I have mine set up without having to use the included remote. I simply have my Harmony universal remote switch each device off before switching on the one I want to use. The switch automatically finds the active port and moves to it. If you have a DVR or other device that is required to be "always-on", simply put it on port 5 - this way, if another port becomes active, it will prioritize a lower numbered one.
I should mention that the product page still claims to ship a mains adapter with this unit, which is supposed to enable the auto-switching functions. The mains adapter is not included anymore, but since auto-switching now works without it anyway, it is not required.
Something else to mention. The unit is about the size of a pack of playing cards. This is good since it is meant to be hidden away. Included is a remote receiver connected with a short cable which you can position in a place to receive commands from the included remote, keeping the main unit out of sight. Since you can use the switch without the remote, you can get by quite easily without hooking this up also.
Switching between two sources on this switch takes about a second, whether using auto-switch or the remote. While I'm sure there are some that are faster, I do not think this worth paying extra for. You may disagree.
There is a manual toggle switch on the top of the main unit.Read more ›
Contrary to one of the other reviews, only one TV needs to be on at any time for the unit to work. Does a great job with no loss of picture or sound quality, even through the longer HDMI cable and the HDMI to DVI adapter cable.
Did not have to use the power adapter to make it work. Just plugged the hdmi cables and when I power on a device the switch activates and makes the autoswitching between the devices.
The IR controller also works without the power adapter.
I first set this device up with one output. It didn't work. Then I set it up with two outputs, and it worked. One of the outputs was a TV. As soon as I switched that TV away from the HDMI, to my DVR or antenna, the HDMI splitter stopped working. When I changed that TV input back to HDMI, the device worked, but only if I powered all devices off and on.
This is definitely an el cheapo splitter, at the bottom of the price range for HDMI splitters (about $20). I didn't ask for a replacement. If the first one doesn't work and it's a cheap model, then they are probably all made cheaply, so even if the replacement works, it might not work for long. Many of the reviews on Amazon for these inexpensive splitters said that even if they work at first, sometimes they burn out after a few months. I'm going to try one of the more expensive splitters.
Warning: You will see lot of the inexpensive splitters available through Amazon, but they are all really just two models, each from multiple sellers. Look at the pictures, you will see which ones are the same model.
Suggestion: Try to use Amazon Prime when buying. I know that sometimes Amazon Prime is more expensive than the same model without Amazon Prime, but from all of the comments on all of these splitters, it's apparent that you can easily get a defective unit. With Amazon Prime, they will always take it back and they will pay for return shipping.

Haven't got to use it yet but seems like a quality product. Will update after I get my HDMI cables. I found a pack of 3 6' cables for $5!Published 1 day ago by tyler moore
This is really a fine Switcher and the automatic sensing of the active Port is very desireablePublished 4 days ago by Leroy Stockemer
It works really well. But unless you have a power plug that just might fit it, beware. I and 2 other people I know who have bought it did not get the power cords.Published 12 days ago by mtouchto
I bought this for a friend who was unable to split his HDMI signal with a simply "Y" cable. The added amplification in this device made it work fine.Published 17 days ago by Longarm
