Automatic Feature does not work at all, 21 Oct 2011
Yeah fair enough you can press the select button but I bought it for the automatic feature. Only switches "automatically" if you physically unplug and plug in HDMI cables. Useless. Also having a plug each side results in a pretty horrific spread of cables. Which would be ok if I didn't now need access to it to press the select button - thought it would be hidden away and wouldn't need access too often, but I'm going to be pressing that select button a lot. Very disappointed, but then it was very cheap. Still only getting one star though - products have to work as advertised to deserve more than that. If you want a manual switcher and don't mind the cables exploding in all directions from your box then its a cheap solution, but do NOT buy it for the automatic feature. I had read other reviews rubbishing it and thought I'd take a chance because other reviews said it worked fine - don't believe them - it doesn't.
