Does Not Auto Switch To Source Device From Standby.
on 3 September 2011
This item will be useful to people with only 1 port on their TV.
The picture quality through device OK.
What you need to realise is the auto / intelligent function will only work, if the source device (sky box, DVD player etc) is either switched on/off or plugged in/out from the wall socket, or switched manually by the button on the Auto switch splitter.
Which defeats the object of having a so called Auto function.
E.G. When the 1st device is plugged in, it will switch to this.
When the 2nd device is plugged in, it will switch to this.
When the 3rd device is plugged in, it will switch to this.
If you want to go back to the 1st device, you will need to use the selector button on the switch or unplug or switch off the 2nd & 3rd devices from the wall socket.
You will NOT be able to go to 1st device by simply putting the 2nd & 3rd devices into standby.
The so called Auto switch will not switch to the source device from standby.
