I'm happy to say that all devices worked and transferred audio just perfectly to my Asus VH236H gaming LCD.
Even more fun is that I was able to use my old passive 3-port HDMI switch and daisy-chain it to this Mediabridge 5 port switch, so now I have all 7 devices hooked up at the same time, and automatic switching works perfectly (your mileage may vary with the daisy-chaining, of course!).
Only a couple of things could be addressed with this switch to make it "perfect."
1.) You can't turn the switch off without pulling out the power cord. It uses 1.4 Watts of power just sitting there.
2.) There's no way to turn off the red/blue LEDs, so if you don't want them shining at you, you may need to use some black tape to cover them up. Be sure to leave the remote infrared receiver uncovered in case you need to use it.
Overall, this is an excellent device, and I'm really pleased that there's a US-based tech support you can call if you have any issues.
5 stars out of 5.
Have my ATV2, G-box MX2, and WD media player connected and they all work great with the switch!
With five HDMI connections (4 inputs on the back, one output on the side and 5th additional input on the other side) there should be enough for most people. I do wish all the connections were on the back. But it worked out OK for me.
The LED's are bright but they don't bother me based on how I positioned my switch. But be aware they are somewhat bright.
Overall great switch! I have two and so far no problems. Will buy more if I need in the future!
Oh, and I do wish they put an on/off switch on the device. Hopefully the next version will.
One HDMI cable goes from monitor to the single Output jack on the switch box. The 2 or 3 computers need 1 HDMI cable each to run over to any of the 3 Input jacks on the switch box.
The remote comes with a nice piece of clear plastic under the battery cover to keep the battery from draining during the trip from manufacturing to your door – pull the plastic tab out and the remote is ready for use.
If you only have 1 computer turned on the switch box automagically sends that signal to the monitor – no button pressing required. When you turn on any additional monitors it switches to those all by itself, the thinking there being you probably want to see that newly turned on computer once it boots up (not sure that I totally like that thinking but it is not unreasonable). I am not sure if you can turn off that auto-switching feature... perhaps the seller can chime in here and respond to that(?)
When switching between computers the monitor goes dark for up to 6 seconds, then the newly selected computer shows up on the screen. It would be super fun to have this delay be a lot shorter, but you can’t have everything(?)... The current 24” monitor I have actually has 2 HDMI jacks on the back, it does the switching between 2 computers via a button on the side and is very fast – but of course I want 3 computers so I needed this switch – and also very few of any newer monitors coming along now have more than just 1 HDMI jack (cost cutting I suppose?).
Switch box and remote look professional and stylish, no disappointment there! I like it.
I have bought several Mediabridge cables in the past, and I've always considered them to be very well made and well supported by the company. So, even though there seems to be a near clone on Amazon, I bought the one with the Mediabridge name on it, because I know the company will stand behind it.
