"As advertised and shipping was fast!!!"

Overview

The Sewell 5x1 SwitchDeck (4K 5x1 HDMI Switcher) supports Full HD, 3D, HDR signals up to 4K 60Hz, and allows you to switch between five HDMI sources to one HDMI display (5-in, 1-out). SwitchDeck makes a great switch no matter what your application is, whether you are looking to send all of your HDMI sources over one HDMI cable to an HDTV, monitor, or projector.

Note: Sewell HDMI Switches are all HDCP compliant which means that this switch does not strip or bypass HDCP. This switch supports all versions of HDCP including HDCP 2.2.

5x1 Distribution Amplifier

SwitchDeck is an active 5-port 4K HDMI switcher (aka distribution amplifier) which means that it actively amplifies and equalizes the input signal in order to perform at maximum spec. This signal amplification means that you can use longer HDMI cable and achieve optimal results.

HDMI 2.0

The main spec to look for when trying to find a true-HDMI 2.0 switcher (including HDMI 2.0a and HDMI 2.0b) is the bandwidth spec-- it should be 18 Gbps. If an HDMI switcher claims to pass this bandwidth in each channel, it can achieve full 4K 60Hz 4:4:4 chroma.

4K HDMI Cable

Why you would want 4K 60Hz vs 4K 30Hz

HDCP 2.2 Switcher Compliance

Like any active HDMI component, you're going to want to start thinking about future HDCP versions. This is great to start future proofing your setup, however, it is important to know the new HDCP 2.2 standard is not backwards compatible with previous versions of HDCP.

With the SwitchDeck 5 port HDMI Switcher, since it supports HDCP 2.2, you can be sure that it will continue to work after you get that new TV someday. A lot of TVs being sold these days have at least one port that supports HDCP 2.2 and is meant for full HDMI 2.0 signals

Pros: Great quality, it out-performs most of the high end AVR internal 4K HDMI switches when it comes to pushing 4K 60fps/10bit color on over 15ft of HDMI cable run.

Cons: Dish Network receiver (Non 4K): It will not auto switch when you have a DSN receiver as one of your sources. The DSN receiver technically remains in "Standby" mode displaying commercials, as the switch still sees an active stream.

Pros: I had tried a lot of combinations of things to get my Roku to do 4k HDR. It is very quirky and would only work with a shorter HDMI cable. I have some good HDMI cables and bought a new 30' HDMI for my Roku that was supposed to work. It didn't. Anyways my point is that I think Roku 4k HDR is a pretty good test. This box passed it. I really am happy that it worked and that I could hook up 5 4k HDR devices to this. My equipment is in a closet behind my TV so I try to maximize my HDMIs. This works great and the price is great.

Cons: None.

Other: Would be nice to have an RF remote.

Pros: Works perfectly, switches quickly, super simple design

Cons: None I've uncovered...

Other: I went through two other manufacturers' cheap hdmi switches before I finally settled upon sewell's. The first two each had extraordinary unusual behavior with certain types of devices, especially those that can take power from the switch like older Chromecast devices, etc... I also suspect that in some cases redmere cables might have also exacerbated the issues. Sewell's switch, on the other hand, worked perfectly first try, with only one slight ssue where my TiVo does not recognize that it has video out except when I reboot it and ensure the switch is switched to the TiVo, but I'm pretty sure this has to do with the tivo's hdcp copy protection implementation. If it's booted while the switch has the TiVo selected and I switch it immediately back in the event that the switch auto selects the next operational input, everything works exactly as it should. If, however, I just reboot the TiVo and don't pay attention to the fact that the switch switched away from the TiVo as the TiVo signal dropped, the TiVo usually will have no operational signal at that point until I reboot it again. I think at least once I have been able to power the switch off and back on to convince the TiVo that essentially a cable was plugged it back in and that solved it. The only feature I would request sewell Implement in their products is the ability to turn off automatic input switching to alleviate some of these types of issues.
