This review is from: Kinivo 501BN Premium 5 port High speed HDMI switch with IR wireless remote and AC Power adapter - supports 3D, 1080p (Electronics)
We had tried several of these types of switches, all of them did not work like they said. Fortunately we got all of them on Amazon so we were able to return them without any problems. We had just about given up on them all when we ran across this one on Amazon. It does what it says it can do.
Here is a review I did for YouTube because I wanted to let other people know about this great find. My wife suggested that I post it here and show people how great it works. In the video, I actually show you how easy it is to use.

Thank you for the cool quick video review of the product. I was just looking at a $9 switcher as well. I think I'll go with this one instead:)
Do you know if it supports HDMI 1.3 or 1.4?

I enjoyed your review, and might get this device. My challange is that I would like to use this swith with my appleTV box, as well as with an Xbox360, Nintendo, and Sony Receiver, etc. Unlike yours, my TV has only one HDMI input, so I cannot directly hookup the appleTV to it, which sort of defeats the purpose :-( Any suggestions will be appreciated!

Easy solution! Hook it right up to the Kinivo but unplug the power from the Apple TV. There are two cords that go into the Apple: the HDMI and the Power. If the power cord is unplugged it won't register with the Kinivo. Also, your Apple is always streaming when the power is on, this will keep it from using your band width. Yes, it is a little bit of a hassle, but to me it's worth it! Hope this helped you out!!

Can you keep your Apple TV plugged in but just switch the input with the IR remote?
