Top customer reviews
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.
This does not work well with the Framemeister for two reasons: It has syncing issues with the device and the HDMI is always active. When the Framemeister is in standby mode it causes the HDMI switch to think it is receiving a signal.
I bought two of these to daisy chain but it does not sync well with my TV when I do that. I tried buying an HDMI amplifier thinking that maybe there was some signal loss after all the chaining. That caused the Framemeister to lose audio so I removed it. Still trying things to get this to work how I want.
I basically just want to turn on a gaming console and have it all appear on HDMI 1 on my TV. It should be simple but somehow it is not.
Despite this, I just purchased another one given the ongoing positive reviews. So far I'm still having the same 2 issues I mentioned above but its otherwise working for now so haven't returned it. Still need to cycle the inputs to get the sound to work when I turn the tv on in the morning and, occasionally, I need to cycle the inputs to clear up the picture. Not a huge deal to cycle via the remote but shouldn't need to do so.
I like the price for the number of inputs but, if it starts just flashing the screen again and not displaying anything, I'll definitely be going with a different brand - hopefully after receiving a refund. Fingers crossed.
The box included instructions, but the port markings are very obvious, so it was a snap to figure out. I attached my devices (you need to provide your own HDMI cables), attached the output cable, and inserted the provided power cable/adapter.
Since I was setting this up with my Logitech Harmony, it was a snap. The Harmony Software recognized the name Kinivo when I went though the setup, and after setting up and syncing the remote, the Kinivo switch worked perfectly with all my devices.
The only thing I wished was that the output HDMI port was on the back, but if it was so, the device footprint would be about an inch bigger. The red and blue display lights on the device may be an annoyance to some, but after some time, you can overlook that as well. Perhaps you can mask them too, as long as you do not cover up the IR receiver!
