First, the picture shown (as of today) is not what you are getting. The current picture I see looks like an HDMI switch.

The box I received has 5 component inputs on the back and one input on the front. It has two component outputs on the back. Each input and output on the back has your 3 YPbPr component jacks, left/right analog RCA audio jacks, and a digital TOSLINK optical audio jack. The front input is slightly different - it has the same YPbPr component jacks and TOSLINK optical audio jack, but it uses a single 3.5mm headphone jack for analog audio instead of the 2 left/right RCA jacks. If you want to plug in RCA style audio to the front, you'll need a cheap 3.5mm to RCA "Y" cable.

The two outputs on the back can be separately controlled. So, you can have input #3 going to output #1 and input #5 to output #2 at the same time. You can also have a single input go to both outputs.

The remote has discreet IR codes for power on, power off, all 6 inputs to output 1, and all 6 inputs to output 2 (14 total buttons). So, you people with Harmony remotes and the like are going to love this thing. I use a Harmony remote, and the switch was already in the database and works flawlessly.

My biggest concern was how the picture was going to look. After reading a lot of reviews of other switches, I realized these things can be pretty finicky. My inputs are a Comcast HiDef DVR (1080i), Memorex Blu-ray (1080i), Wii (480p), original Xbox (480p and 1080i), and a HiDef Sony Camcorder on the front (1080i). My TV is an older 73" Mitsubishi that supports 480p and 1080i. I use analog audio for the Wii and my camcorder. All the other devices output digital audio, but I route those directly through my receiver instead of this switch.

I bought this as an upgrade from the smaller 3x1 version. The immediate need was to split or switch the optical audio signal to have it go to my receiver and the base station for my IR surround sound headphones.

It actually simplified my AV set-up a little. I use it to switch between a Tivo HD, Motorola set-top box, Sony DVD player, a PS3, and an Apple TV. It's been hassle-free since the day I set it up.

It is completely compatible with my Logitech Harmony remote. The remote codes are already in the Harmony system (although Harmony for some reason refers to blue and red buttons instead of the green and red buttons on the IA remote).

I use the IA remote only when I need to switch the second output for my headphones.

This will do quite nicely until AV receiver manufacturers catch up with market and start making reasonably-priced receivers that can switch five or six (or more) HD component video or HDMI inputs and have one or two optical audio outputs.

I purchased this product because it was the only A/V switch box that had six inputs and TWO outputs, and more importantly, digital optical connections. It replaced an old three input/ one output dial type optical cable switcher that I have worn out. I have my HDTV (for OTA HD), DVD player, HD-DVR DirectTv box, and an X-Box 360 all connected to my surround sound system, and also to a set of wireless 5.1 surround sound headphones so I can enjoy gaming or TV watching at any volume after my wife goes to bed! This switch has performed flawlessly since it was installed, and I still have two open inputs for future use. The remote is just icing on the cake! No need to get up and manually switch the box from one input to another!

All in all, an excellent product for the price! If I needed another, I would not hesitate to purchase this unit again!

This had all the features I was looking for and functioned just as described.
The problem was when there was too much movement/quick transitions on the screen the picture would go blank and the sound cut out from half a second up to five seconds. At first I thought it was only during fast paced action shots, but then later, watching CNN HD, when they'd transition between stories and bring up graphics quickly it would also cut out. I called their tech support and they asked me if I had certain Sony TVs since they'd heard of this before with them. My TVs are all Samsung. The DLP it worked perfect on, the two LCDs I tried gave varying degrees of the issue. They said to return it since there was nothing they could do. I was just unlucky enough to have a TV that lost sync with it.
See this link for technical details about what was happening (the part about "DC restoration"): [...]

So, if your TV(s) work with it it's a really nice unit, but if they don't, you'll probably want to return it. Amazon was great about the return, sent UPS to my door the next morning to pick it up and put the prepaid shipping label on the box. Other than this issue, the picture and sound was very close to, if not the same, quality as the original. The price was good, too.

As with the majority of reviewers, I have no qualms about the handling of video signals. My gripe is this; I use my switcher not for TV viewing but to matrix security video cameras. Whenever there is an outage, the unit goes dead and requires manual toggling of the front panel power switch to turn it back on. I have two switchers located far from my monitor, 100 ft or more outside my house so each time I have a momentary outage (very common in my small town), my security cameras goes dead and and I have to run out to the remote location to turn it back on. In most modern TV gear, the state of the machine is restored as soon as power is restored, but not this device. For those who intend to use this switcher box far from the monitor, often in a bedroom,forewarn that if you have frequent outages, this could be a very frustrating box to use.
