Product Description

This 4x1 HDMI Switcher meets all HDMI v1.4 specifications including HDMI Ethernet Channel, Audio Return Channel, Full 3D support, and 4Kx2K Resolution Support. Connect multiple HDMI sources with one HDMI display end. Switch any one of the four HDMI sources to one display or projector simply and easily. The signal can support extra audio out by optical cable. Without adding an additional HDMI Cable this switch will reverse the audio to the AV amplifier through the HDMI cable connection allowing your HDTV to receive audio and video content. Switch between four HDMI sources either automatically or manually using the buttons on the switch or the included IR remote. This HDMI switch is compatible with all HDMI sources and supports HDCP. New Functions The HDMI organization has recently upgraded HDMI to include several new and exiting functions. HDMI v1.3 cables are already being phased out by the superior HDMI v1.4 cables. The problem is that most HDMI devices (including switches) do not support these new functions. This HDMI switch will allow you to enjoy all the new functions of HDMI v1.4. HDMI Ethernet Channel: Allows you to use HDMI devices that are IP enabled such as HDTVs and Blu-Ray players with Ethernet enabled features. This would allow you to use your Netflix instant viewing app on your new Ethernet enabled HDTV, for instance. Audio Return Channel: Allows you to connect an HDMI TV with a tuner to an audio receiver via HDMI. This allows you to send audio from your TV to the receiver "upstream" without giving up the "downstream" video from a video source connected to your receiver (like from a Blu-Ray player or gaming console). 3D Support: This cable has added 3D support, supporting every brand and type of active and non-active 3D protocols. 4K support: This future proofs your HDMI cable; supporting resolutions that far surpass 1080p (4096×2160 p24 to be exact, 1080p is 1920x1080).

Customer Reviews

Manual is useless and apparently written by someone who isn't fluent in English.

The auto switching of optical audio seems to be an issue and I get popping feedback from the audio on occasion.
Ray
It uses a physical switch for power, so you can't just turn it off and back on easy either.

I'll get right to the point:

1)Unit is VERY flaky, and needs to be reset at least daily, often multiple times per day.
2)Often in order to get sound, I would have to turn on my xbox on input one, then reset the device, then go back to my xbox, then i could switch to input 2 for my cable. This has become a daily routine just to make sound work.

Do NOT buy this item. I literally just threw mine in the trash as it finally pissed me off with having to constantly reset it. It uses a physical switch for power, so you can't just turn it off and back on easy either. You have to have a very small finger or something poky to push the switch in as its tiny and recessed.

I was not sure what to expect with this switch but I found it to be reliable and performs well. I have not had any issues with it to date. I use this switch for the Audio out feature because I dont want to upgrade my receiver that works just fine, but does not have any HDMI switching or inputs. So i switch with this switch and use the SPDIF optical output in to the receiver for all the audio. One thing I have run in to is that when I use the Blue Ray player on the switch there are some audio modes that are passed to the receiver that the receiver doesn't understand. For example of the disk is in Dolby digital 7 channel or something like that the receiver cant decode it and doesn't do anything. fortunately the Blue Ray has another Digital pcm output that down converts to a mode the receiver can decode. at any rate that has nothing to do with this switch. Just an FYI. I am running 1080P across a 70 foot HDMI cable to the TV from the media closet and it is working just fine.
I have not tried 3d yet with the switch.
The packaging was well done but you can definitely tell the instructions manual was done on a lower budget. Not a big deal considering the device is just a switch.

Bottom line is that this switch is not much money and it allowed me to keep a perfectly good surround receiver in place for a while longer.

I definitely recommend this switch especially if you need an optical output.

First of all,i don't even think it has been tested by manufacturer to make sure it will work with 1.4 hdmi.I have all the audioquest carbon cables and this thing could'nt pass any signals through and when it did,the picture would come and go.I tried all the outputs,different cables i had but same results.It looks and feels like a toy and sure does work like one.Just to let you know,i was working with ps3 3d ready and optoma hd33 3d ready with all 1.4 cables.

The device locks up as many have noted and requires unplugging all HDMI devices and then uplugging it to reset. This mainly happens if the projector has been unplugged. The picture and audio are solid when it's working.

It does not auto detect input, it has to be done with remote
It works ok for pc and playstations
If I connect my 4k blu-ray player ( BD-H6500/ZC ) directly in hdmi input of 4k pc monitor ( LU28D590DS/ZC ), monitor shows screen resolution of 3840 X 2160 when I play a blu-ray disk
Through the switch, resolution stays at 1920 X 1080
I was especting better from it's listing

I like this unit very much it dose all I ask of it. Gave it 4 stars because the unit will output video either to the HDMI or the composite cable but not both simultaneously. I don't need both but it means I just switch the unit off to view output on the monitor attached to the composite output.

If your TV does not support ARC, dont buy this.. Even if ur HDTV is new, dont assume it supports v1.4 ARC(especially cheap Samsung HDTVs)..

The auto switching of optical audio seems to be an issue and I get popping feedback from the audio on occasion. I've also noticed a degradation of video quality when using the switch and no 1.4 hdmi makes this unit one I wouldn't buy again. Poor quality.
