IR remote makes it easy to hide the switch behind components.

It worked all fine for about an year and then all of a sudden 3 out of the 5 ports just stopped working.

When I pressed the down arrow on my Verizon remote, it controlled this switch and changed the source.

This is a great switch at a great price. Most 5-port switches cost twice as much or do not fully support v.1.3 - a standard which Blu-Ray and some games consoles require to work properly. I have seen some where Blu Ray or PS3 will only work on one port. I have successfully tested my own PS3 on all ports.

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.

This cheap and tiny hdmi switch works great. It looks flimsy and cheap, and came packaged in a bag of plastic... but it works very good.

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.

Great little device. Works perfectly. I did not need to plug it into power, it just works all by itself. Just plug in your HMDI imput sources, and hook its output to the HDMI on the back of your tv, and that is about it. It just plain works. Sits behind my TV and no one even knows its there. Great buy.

Hooked this up to my television to switch between a PS3 and a WD Media Player. Connected the PS3 to port 1 and the media player to port 2, now when my PS3 powers up it takes precedence and switches to the PS3, when I power the PS3 down the switcher automatically connects to the WD Media Player. Perfect! No power adapter needed (but one provided). No remote needed (but one provided). Couldn't be more pleased!

Pros:
Separate IR dongle means that the switch itself can be buried behind components, which makes the wiring much easier.

Cons:
Very confusing owner's manual, ports for power and IR dongle are so close together on the unit that they require some "persuasion" to plug in, IR receiver has a very narrow field of view. Auto switching doesn't seem to work.

This is a relatively inexpensive way to add HDMI ports to a home theater system, and it's working OK so far for me (after only 3 days). There are three ways to switch between inputs
1. a button on the top of the unit that toggles between the 5 inputs.
2. A remote control that has a button for each of the 5 inputs.
3. automatic switching, which will switch to the next active input port when the current port goes inactive.

The swtich will work without power, but the manual is unclear if all three of the switching methods will work without power. (It contradicts itself on that point, and appears to have been badly translated from another language.) You definately need power to use the remote control.

The IR dongle is a nice feature, but I have my system on a high shelf, and I find that I can't operate the switch while sitting on the couch -- I have to stand up and get right in front of it for the remote to work. I don't have this problem with any of my other components.

One of my sources is a Roku box, which has a "screen saver" feature that kicks in if the box isn't used for 10 minutes. This results in "snow" on my TV screen, even after the Roku box starts sending a picture again. (The switch does not auto-switch to the next source.) I usually have to select the source 2 or more times (with the remote) before I get the picture back.

I had read that some people didn't need the adapter, while others did not, so I decided to order this one because the title claimed to include one.

I was foolish enough to order two of these... neither package had the adapter. Oddly enough it shipped in a bubble wrap bag that actually had the title which described it as having the adapter... not there and as it turns out, it did not work right for me.

Another major hurdle was the size, configuration and length of the IR remote cable. To illustrate the problem, let me break it down:

1. Size
=======
It's small, so it's extremely light and doesn't lay flat.

2. Configuration
================

This thing is like an octopus with wires pointing in 4 directions. The front and back feature three ports each. For some reason the front has the output, plus ports 1 and 5; the back has ports 2, 3 & 4. What this means is that if you try to place it flat on a surface you end up with a birds nest of wires pointing all over the place, which when compounded with the size issue, it's a complete mess to place in plain site, such as on a desk or next to a TV.

3. IR Remote Cable
==================

When you factor in the first two issues, you would think the solution is to just throw the whole mess of wires out of site... behind your TV / Monitor. The trouble is, the IR remote is too short to make that possible.

I think the best alternative for me is to find one similar to the one I already have which was made by Philips. It needs a power supply and has only 3 ports, but all 3 ports, plus the power and the output are on the same side, so they tuck nicely in the back.
