2-Port HDMI Auto Switch

Product Description
Perfect for situations where two HDMI devices must share a single HDMI input on a display, this HDMI auto switch provides for hassle free operation. The power required for operation of this switch is provided from the HDMI source devices, so no separate power adapter is required*. With the wealth of devices now using HDMI, it is easy to run out of free HDMI inputs on a HDTV or home theater receiver. This HDMI selector switch solves the problem by providing additional high-definition digital inputs for sources including Blu-ray™ and DVD players, gaming systems, and high-definition cable/satellite boxes.

The auto switching functionality provides for a system that is easy to use, while manual switching functionality is available for situations where more control is desired. The auto switching feature is able to sense when a new device is connected or powered on and will automatically switch to that port. When the device is disconnected or powered off, then this feature automatically switches to the first connected device. In situations where two devices are connected to the switch and powered on, or sending an HDMI signal to the switch, the Select button on the top of the switch may be used to switch back and forth between the two inputs.

Please note: Most HDMI source devices are able to provide the necessary power for the operation of the HDMI switch; however, in some situations the power supply of the HDMI source device is insufficient and additional power is required. In those situations, power for the HDMI switch may be supplied using our HDMI voltage inserter

Rated 5 out of 5 by Larry from Works perfectly This was the perfect solution for our conference room projector with 1 HDMI input. The Apple TV (which is always on) plugs into Input 2, the other HDMI cable into Input 1, and it switches as expected between the two of them. The Apple TV has plenty of juice to power the switch. Nice!

Rated 5 out of 5 by David from Precisely what I hoped it would do My Mother-In-Law is very important to me. I want to make her TV/Movie/Music capabilities very nice but they must be very easy. I bought this so she can power-on her CD/BlueRay player and have all the switching bits happen without her to be "operating" her stuff. One tiny detail not explicitly described in the description is the switch will happen if a (previously) connected device is powered-on. You do not have to unplug/plug devices for it to work. This device is just what I needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by lithoman from Met a great need Port for 2 was the answer to only having one HDMI on my tv plus using the cable that you recommended really was the solution to my needs

Rated 5 out of 5 by Paul from Money Saver! I thought I was forced to run multiple long HDMI cables from components to TV monitor. This little device solved the problem. Much smaller footprint than I thought and easy to connect three components back out to one 100' HDMI that runs up one wall across the attic then down another wall to the TV. Easy to install and locate something this small. And, it works perfectly!

Rated 5 out of 5 by rogerc402 from COMPACT, SIMPLE SETUP AND OPERATION I bought this to switch a couple of HDMI sources in our cable TV setup. The switch was easy to set up, and 'just works' as described and expected. The only thing I was surprised at, and perhaps it is of little actual consequence, it has a jack for a 5VDC power supply, but a supply was not included. I had one which fit and used that. Otherwise, nicely done unit.

Ive used you guys in the past and have always been happy. We recently got a new LG soundbar with 1 HDMI input. We usually will be using directv genie most of the time. But when we switch to the bluray for a movie or netflix, our remote tells the genie to turn off and the bluray to turn on. Would this unit automatically make the change? I dont want to have to go up and manually make the switch.
Asked by: Jason
It does not. When you plug a Genie in (HDMI 1) the led comes on for that input device. If you then plug in a Firestick (for instance) to (HDNI 2) it switches to that led. In that sense it is auto switching. However when you power on the genie it does NOT auto switch back to the first input. You must then start using the manual button to switch between inputs.

Is this device HDCP compliant? Many people do not realize, if you are splitting from a cable box or a streaming device that is providing you with premium content with an HDMI out, it needs to be HDCP compliant. If it is not, then your TV screen is solid BLACK. I am assuming it is not because there is no description regarding HDCP, plus the price is way too low for a 3 way splitter using HDCP technologies. Please let me know.
Asked by: Dave
This Device is HDCP Compliant. This will not split video it will switch between multiple devices and a Display.
