One other note: HDMI cables are pretty new on the scene. I'm using the really cheap ones (which work just as well as the really expensive ones-- it's digital, people, not analog!), and they fit just fine. I suspect that complaints about cable size and like issues will go away with devices like this one, which is in the mainstream of HDMI specs.
UPDATE - April 2011 - After six months, the switch is still working great. I also want to report that we never have to use the Select button, because the automatic switching works seamlessly. That is, when the PS3 is off and the XBox is on, the switch automatically selects the XBox. Turn off the XBox and turn on the PS3, and the switch, um, switches. No fiddling required. My sons don't even know it's there.
To avoid switching trouble and the need to keep another remote around, just remember that the device will automatically switch to the lowest numbered port with an adequate signal strength. That is, if two devices are powered on, the switch will use the signal from the device in port 1 instead of the signal in port 5. If you power down device 1 in port 1, and device 5 is powered on through port 5, the switcher will start showing the port 5 signal. I hope that makes sense!
Where I think people are having trouble is when they unknowingly have multiple devices powered on at the same time. Some devices continue to operate in the background even though powered off (most internet enabled devices and cable DVR boxes will continue to draw power in the background even when 'off'). For example, my Apple TV box is always working in the background; the solution is to put it in port 5 so that it gets lowest priority. If it was in port 1, it could interfere with other devices every time it automatically powered on to communicate with big brother.
Signal, when working, was strong with no flicker or pixelation. On Day 6 the units simply stopped working. I put a meter on it. Signal-in was strong but no signal-out. I assume that the switch mechanism failed.
Note- this unit does NOT have a power supply. It is powered by the signal strength alone. The description shows a power supply but the package says that none is needed and no supply was in the package. Beware- the unit may have changed since earlier reviews.
* IR Receiver
* Power Supply
* Remote Control
+ Easy Setup; just connect the IR Receiver to the Switch, connect the Power Supply, and connect the cables (we are using the cheapest possible with no issues)
+ Auto Switching; works perfectly to switch to a newly active port if the current selected port is off
+ Manual Switching; button in switch allows manually changing the input if the very small remote is misplaced
+ Small Size; fits easily tucked into my component cabinet
* 5-input ports, 1-output port
* IR Receiver is different than the one shown in the product picture
We used this to replace a manual 4-port switch when we needed to add a 5th HDMI device and we are thrilled with the addition of the automatic switching and the remote control.

This product worked superlatively. Admittedly, I couldn't get the IR remote working but I also had no intention of using it. I draw power from a tiny 7 port Belkin USB3 hub. Read morePublished 9 days ago by KimmyG
