Pros: Works perfectly. Solid connection for HDMI cables. Compact but solid.

Cons: Blue LED light is very bright but it can be covered if necessary.

Other: This is a unique item that was hard to find. I use it to switch the cable box between receiver and HDTV. It saves time and effort of plugging and unplugging HDMI cables.

GREAT LITTLE GADGET

Pros: Very easy to use.

Cons: none so far

Other: I needed something like this since I have an older TV with only 1 HDMI input and my Roku was aalready hooked up to that. Now I can also watch my new HDMI DVD player. Problem solved. Thanks for a great product.

Works Super

Works super. Mounted on back center top of TV (within arms reach) (with Velcro) for cable box in and 2 TVs out (1 in another room about 20 feet away. Can't see light from back of TV. Other brands of switchers would not work for a higher price.

Works Great

Does exactly what it says it will. Used to switch between using TV as computer monitor and cable TV box. Turn the cable box on, hit the button on the switch get TV hit the button again back to computer. Absolutely flawless. Great deal. Great shipping time.

Question:

If I connect one hdmi source will it output to both ports?


Answer:

No, this is a switch, so it will only send the signal to (or from) one source at a time. If you want to send one HDMI source to two displays, you will want an HDMI splitter.

Question:

I know the signal only goes to one monitor at a time but does the signal Strength get cut down as it passes through? Or does it go full strength to whichever port is chosen. If not, how much does it need to be amplified? Thanks, Frank


Answer:

since this switch goes from one source to one display at a time, signal strength should not be affected very much at all, and unless you are planning on having the signal travel further than HDMI specifications allow you shouldn't have a problem.

Question:

I want to connect my PS3 and Xbox 360 (both are HDMI) to a single HDMI port on my TV. Will this work for my problem? Thanks!


Answer:

Yes, this should work well for you. You can connect both of your consoles and then simply use the button to switch between the two.
