I needed a switch to route video from 2 HDMI sources to my older TV (which has only one input). I wanted an automatic device that required no action from me to operate; however, the TV broadcast from the cable company is always transmitting, so I needed a "smart" splitter to automatically detect when the DVD player was turned-on so that it could prioritize that signal over the first - which the Startech switch is now doing flawlessly and at an exeptional price.

The longest part of the setup was walking from the mailbox to my house - connection took less than a minute.

I purchased this unit to connect a Panasonic Blu-ray player and a Roku to my Yamaha RV reciever that only had 2 HDMI inputs. The auto switcher works great because you can port prioritize your HDMI signals. Since the Roku is an "always on" device, it's plugged into port 2 but when the Blu-ray is turned on, the StarTech will auto switch to port 1. Took purchasing 2 other "auto" switchers before I figured out that port priority was the key. One other quick note, turn off the quick start function on your Blu-ray player as it draws constant power (the unit will not auto switch if both devices are in an "always on" state).

Works awesome, However for you to enjoy this without using the included remote you will need to understand how it works.
You can't have 2 devices that are ALWAYS on, You can only have 1 device that's always on.
Example of my Setup, TIVO Always on, Wii U, Xbox one, both only turned on when needed.
So this switch will switch to the most recently turned on item, IE if it's on TIVO and I turn on the Wii U, then it will automatically switch to the Wii. When I turn the Wii U back off it will switch back to the Tivo....

If you have two devices that are always on you will need to switch it manually or via included remote.
Understand what you have, and what you need before buying this if you want to be happy with your purchase.
This works PERFECTLY for my described setup above.

I purchased the StarTech auto switch because I have a television with only two HDMI ports. I needed to hook up my Dish receiver, Apple TV and Mac mini. I could not hook the Apple TV and Dish receiver up to the switch at the same time because they both pass signal even when they are off so the switch wouldn't auto switch. For my needs it works fine I just hooked the Mac Mini and Apple TV to the switch. over all it is a nice switch very small.

First, I would buy another one. Works as advertised. The minor glitch is it occasionally takes up to 30-seconds to recognized the second device is turned on. I have plenty of patience as long as what I want happens immediately. Objectively, a few seconds isn't that big of a deal.

The product feels very cheap. I like the fact that it does not require external power. Unfortunately, it did not work as designed.
1. I had to have both sources connected and ON for it to work at all. It worked fine with both ON using the switch.
2. It was supposed to auto switch to the second source when turned ON. And switch back to the first source when source 2 goes OFF. This did not work because of (1.) because it only works with both sources ON.

Maybe it was a bad one, but I will never try this brand again.

Having had other switches in the past that had auto switching without a remote and they worked great. However after a couple of years the auto switching stopped working and had to be manually switched. Which is a real pain when the switch is behind the TV or inside an entertainment center. I purchased this switch because it can auto change to the port you are using (mostly) can be manually controlled and has a remote. Using the switch for 5 weeks and it has been used quite a bit. It gets 4 starts for the following.

The remote seems a little fragile but should be ok for normal use. It probably won't stand up to rough use. It will auto switch to some devices for example a blue ray/dvd player. The fast start up & HDMI control was turned off on the blue ray and DVD and it still switches automatically. It has been tested on a Panasonic and Sony. It didn't auto switch to my cablebox (Motorola) or WDTV or the WDTV hub. It may be the version of HDMI that the device uses. The TV is a 9 year old Panasonic plasma with only 1 HDMI port. The blue ray and dvd players were disconnected and the port still didn't automatically switch

Since the switch doesn't automatically switch for 2 of the 3 devices connected. You can use the remote that comes with it or program it to a universal remote like a harmony one. That was tested and it works great. So the remote was programmed to automatically switch to the port number when watching the TV with the cable box or wdtv. The dvd player didn't need this.

Very blight LED's. Plugging this behind my TV makes it look like I have a half dimmed blue ambient lights at all times. Not too bright to be used as such but staring at it nearly blinds me. What's my issue with the LED's? It tells me that it takes quite a bit of power from the HDMI ports to power this thing thus not enough to pass through for my self powered RadioShack HDMI to Composite Converter.

I had intended this for my car's dashboard AV input. I pictured it as an alternative input source for my Lightning to HDMI adapter (priority HDMI) to say a Raspberry Pi (secondary HDMI) however since car AV inputs are analog, they need a converter between the switch and the AV in.

I've been a fan of StarTech products for a while and it does what it's advertised. It's quick (so far) when plugged straight through HDMI ports. It would have been easily a 10 start item if the power consumption was a bit lower so that it passes some through the output for my composite converter.

I can still get what I want by getting a USB powered HDMI to composite converter but I'm not about to rely on micro or mini ports to stay put behind my dashboard so this guy will either be returned or be used as a dashboard project for my Apple TV connected screen with a heavy tape put over the LED lights.
