Product Description

Duronic HDMI Switches.

The HDMI switches from Duronic are used for when you do not have enough HDMI sockets on your TV to cater for all your HDMI compatible appliances.

Example: Your TV has 1 HDMI socket, however you have a TV box, PS3 and a DVD player. You have to unplug and plug in different cables to use different appliances. Our switch will allow you to connect 3 or more devices depending on model and if the appliance allows auto switching.

We have a range of switches that cater for 3 or 5 appliances:

HDS3 - 3 way switcher

HRS1031 - 3 way switcher with remote (ideal for appliances that do not auto switch)

HRS1051 - 5 way auto switch with remote (ideal for appliances that do not auto switch)

Why buy Duronic?

We supply these models worldwide, and have supplied our HDMI products into 00,000's of homes. We do not use Chinese PCB's on our models, our PCB are manufactured outside China, they perform better in many aspects. The metal connectors we use are high quality gold plated connectors unlike cheaper plated connectors which do not perform as good as Duronic connectors in terms of durability and performance over the long period. Our switch are built with capacitor and resistor parts to make the switch perform at optimal level all the time.

HDMI Cables

Always use good quality HDMI cables to work with your switch. Check out the Duronic HDMI cable range to be sure you have a good cable to do your switching for you.

Bought this because I have three HDMI devices attached to my TV (FreeviewHD, Blu-Ray, Roku), and only two HDMI ports on my TV.

The device is about the size of a box of paracetamol, and looks very much like the pictures. There is a blue LED on the top which is quite bright, so bear that in mind before putting it somewhere where it might be annoying. It doesn't require any mains power (the power comes from the HDMI devices you plug into it).

There are four HDMI ports in total. Three inputs (for Blu-ray players, games consoles, etc), and one output that goes into your television.

I leave mine floating behind the TV in mid-air, as the HDMI cables attached to it are quite rigid. It seems to be perfectly happy that way. (Note: HDMI cables are NOT included with this item)

Although there is a button to switch between the HDMI inputs, the box also has auto-detection, so when a device is turned on, it will immediately switch to that device, and switch back when it is turned off. For example, if I have my Roku switched on all the time, if I switch the Blu-ray player on, the device will immediately switch to the Blu-ray input. When I turn off the Blu-ray player, it will switch back to the Roku.

All in all, an excellent purchase, very happy.

I bought this because my tv only has one HDMI port. I have connected two items to it so far, a PS3 and a Sky HD box and I've had absolutely no problems at all, its switching automatically on its own between the two and I can't criticise it at all. Very happy with this little gadget.

Switches between HDMI channels automatically, so no need for the remote! I have my PS3, Xbox 360 and PC all connected to my TV, no loss of sound or picture quality, extremely happy!

Product that arrived was not the one shown. It was faulty and I have been refunded but as I still have the item I decided to take a peek inside and to my surprise it was using the exact chip shown on the description of the cheap "common switch" with the "poor imitation gold connectors" red PCB and everything. I was so let down that I had to write this review to highlight the issue.

This little box works very well, I just plugged in my V+ box, my PS3 and my TV to it and then it pretty much does the rest.

When I turn on the PS3, it automatically switches to that input, and back to the TV feed when I turn it off. A lovely bit of kit.

Size: HDS3 MINI (3 Way)
I was very pleasantly surprised by this tiny device. I purchased it because I bought a new HD PVR and only had 2 HDMI slots on my TV. It was very simple to set up and worked straight out of the box. I use it to switch between my home PC and PS3. It automatically detects when either machine is switched on or comes out of standby and switches to it seemlessly. Similarly when either is switched off it switches to the other. It works so well that no-one in my family is aware that it is there. I have never had to switch manually. Some reviewers have complained about the brightness of the blue LED. It is a little bright but this isn't an issue for me as it is down the back of my TV stand. Altogether a great purchase - very effective and a third the price of anything I could find in the shops.

Size: HRS1051 (5 Way Remote)
Good product almost ruined by port labels.

I've just spent the last hour trying to get this to work which I have now successfully done.

Initially, after wiring it up all I got were various errors on my TV about no cable being connected, or no signal being received, or it switching to strange source inputs on the TV. It looked like it didn't work at all. However, I had noticed when I plugged in a cable to what was labelled "Input 1" source light "4" came on. The same applied to other inputs in that different source lights came on to what the inputs were labelled.

I then worked out that my particular box had been labelled in reverse and the actual "Output" was labelled "Input 3" (if you notice on the product picture "Output" is in the middle on the bottom, mine is labelled in the middle at the top - the picture is right!). So almost ruined by the fact it was upside down when they printed on the numbers.

Having taken this into account and using "Input 3" as the output, and knowing all the input number labels were mixed up, the box appears to be working fine now. So far picture quality looks good, sounds good, remote control works and auto-switching is working for my products that support it.

Anyway, so far recommended, it now seems a good piece of kit for the price (just bare in mind the labelling if you should get one that doesn't behave).

I bought this unit a) to be able to switch between my Apple TV and Panasonic Blueray player, b) for the process to be done automatically & c) for its small size. However, only c) applies.
It is small (only 2" square), but not very discrete due to the constant blue light on display.
Picture quality through the HDC50/1 - VERSION 1.4 (LATEST TECHNOLOGY) HDMI Cable is very good with no apparent loss of signal. Unfortunately, auto switching does not work and requires manual selection using the small button. Once finished, I have to toggle through each of the four cable selections to return viewing back to the tv. Also, it does not seem to recognise the Blueray player and I have ended up manually changing the cables from the back of my tv. Not really much point in having the auto switch. Changing the cables to different ports did not work either.
Overall, the unit failed to live up to either marketing hype or my expectations and is consequently stored in a drawer were, frankly, it is just as effective.
Very disappointed and I'm continuing to look for an effective unit.
