Also the IR learning was great as use a Logitech Universal remotes programmed for the old switch and the new switch learned those commands in a snap.

In my experience this happens 15-20 times in a 1 hour show.

I first bought this switcher for its intended purpose, selecting one of four component-video inputs with stereo audio, and have always been quite satisfied with it. I like it especially for the video quality and value. The video quality is good enough to notice the subtle difference among three different DVD players (see below), and to preserve the full and clear superiority of HD (1080i) sources such as BluRay, HD-DVD, and HDTV tuner, with zero perceptible noise or distortion, so I rated it as Excellent. My only quibble is that the selected channel is indicated by red LEDs that are somewhat dim and hard to see at an angle.

Last year, I purchased another Monoprice component-video switcher, but this time for use as a 5.1-channel audio switcher, since I had meanwhile acquired four components with multichannel audio but had only one set of 5.1 inputs on my AV receiver. This second unit also works quite well, although there is an audible high-frequency switching noise when changing inputs. Once switched, however, audio quality seems perfect. The only slight issue is that it seems the jacks may have become a bit loose due to the stress of connecting and disconnecting some very tight, heavy-gauge audio cables. (Darn those high-end Monster Cables! I now much prefer AR, Tendon, or Atlona brands.)

By the way, I am not sure, but I *think* there is no problem using the video switching circuitry for audio signals. If anyone knows if I am losing or risking something, please advise. As I understand it, the main difference between RCA video and audio cables is that video cables & circuits have a much more narrow tolerance for the impedance specification (75 ohms). RCA component video signals may also be more susceptible to interference, since they are usually thicker cores and shielding than standard-grade audio cables.

I ordered this box to replace another "HDTV" Switch-box. The other one couldn't even support 720p. I Got this one and i got my Xbox-1080i Xbox360-1080i Wii-480P Ps2-480P/720P and it works great. It comes with a remote, and supports coax audio. I love, and it works great.
-Update 2/28/13
Box still works without any-problems. Also, The Xbox360 now is 1080p since i updated my TV last year. For the price paid, you cannot go wrong.

I really wanted to like this product as it seemed to be exactly what I needed. I have a projector with only 1 component input and this device promised to solve the problem of hooking up cable, xbox360, etc to the screen.

However, the product has a major design flaw that forced me to return it. When the video content changes from dark to bright scenes this switch loses the video signal, resulting in a blank screen with "no signal". It loses the signal for ~10-60 seconds before it re-syncs and recovers. This issue occurs randomly during movies, games, sporting events but happens 1-2 times during almost every commercial break (black screen just before each commercial). Sometimes more than a minute of game action will happen before the switch can recover. It seems the engineers of this product couldn't bother to simply watch TV for 10 minutes to make sure their design actually worked.....poor effort.

Check the reviews as others have run into this problem as well. Also keep in mind that this product seems to be branded under many different names (Monoprice, Dynex, Startech, etc.). If you check the reviews you'll see others having the same issue.

I ended up buying the GE 73344 4-Way Switch for Video Electronic Component and now my setup works flawlessly. Doesn't have a remote, but is a simple toggle switch that works! It's for sale here and can be found for $20 at Home Depot.

I was weary of a 4-port switching device with IR-remote being so cheap. However this device functions perfectly as an RCA switch, it just has extra connections available for the YGB, for which it was designed. I don't use the remote, as I understand it sucks up batteries although I can't confirm it, I guess for a party or something it would be fun to switch between systems, but the buttons on the front allow easy sequential channel changing, and the LED is a nice touch, as it clearly shows what channel you have selected. GREAT VALUE/QUALITY!

I purchased this 4 port switch because my TV only has one Component input that supports 1080 resolution. The switch works well to allow my Satellite and Blu-ray player to both output the full 1080 signal and the picture has never looked better. Easy to use, and my Logitech remote works well with this switch.

This is a good AV switch box that can connect up to four inputs. You need power supplied to the unit to switch from input 1 to 4. If you have only red, white, and Yellow plugged in to one of the inputs and the output is hooked up to the TV with component video (R,G,B) and red and white audio, the picture will be black and white until you unplug the R & B from the TV. Inputs and outputs have to match up.

I have Sennheiser headphones with volume control. They connect with the source using composite (red & white) cables. I wanted all of my home theater sources to drive the headphones. This switch does that.

I know that composite cables deliver one of the least pure audio signals. There does seem to be more white noise evident than I hoped for. Otherwise, I'd give it 5 stars.

The "learning" capability also allows me to not need the remote as the box has learned the remote signals om my other remotes.

Very good product.
