I'm using this with an AppleTV 2 and a Panasonic DVD recorder. The Apple TV seems to output an HDMI signal all the time, even if it is on standby / sleep; so if the DVD player is on standby and I switch it on then the switch changes automatically to DVD. However if I then wake up the Apple TV it doesn't automatically switch back, unless I turn off the the DVD player first. Easy enough to work around, and not a fault of the switch.

The switch was somehow much smaller than I expected from the photograph - I guess around 2 inches square and not much over .25 inch thick. It's very light and does ooze quality in the build, but it works perfectly well and I have no complaints for the price.

My surround sound amp only has three HDMI inputs, and I recently acquired a fourth device to run through it. Obvious problem. This simple little box saved the day, despite my doubts.

I am now running a PS3 and an xbox360 through this into a single input on the amp. It switches between the two automatically without any issue, and carries full surround audio. No loss of picture quality at all.

Can't fault it, a bargain which was just what I needed.

Having purchased a playstation 3 and already using the single hdmi port on the back of my tv for the cable channels I needed some kind of extension which wasn't cumbersome and was discreet. This little box fits the bill perfectly its easy to install and works automatically so no manual switching involved. Its small so u can't see it and I would highly recommend it to anyone.

I have two of the three ports plugging in with Xbox360 and the DVD player and it works a treat! It distinguishes between the two without having to change manually. Nice not to have to get up and switch things over all the time lol It's excellent value for the money!

Great product, small.,neat, easy to set up and great performance. I hang my PS3, X-Box and another Blu ray player off this. Swtiches quickly, cleanly and does exactly what you would want it to. USB powered is great too and saves you a plug socket!

Being a technophobe I was a bit sceptical that this would actually work, but it does! As soon as I switch on my dvd player, this gizmo switches the signal. Amazing!

Very pleased with this HDMI switching box. One hdmi cable connects the box to the television (cable not included), leaving three input ports on the box for your various devices. Each of the input ports has an LED that lights up to indicate which port is currently active, and when no devices are on, all the lights are unlit.

The automatic switching works really well. I plugged a htpc (small media pc), an xbox360, and a ps3 into the box, and the automatic switching worked every time. For example:

Switch on the ps3, ps3 is auto selected by the box.

Switch on the xbox while the ps3 is still on, xbox is now auto selected by the box.

Switch off the xbox, input automatically switches back to the ps3 because that's still on.

etc, etc.

There is also a manual select button on the box which you can press to cycle through all the inputs one by one. For example if you've switched on device 1, then switched on device 2, and now want to go back to displaying device 1 without switching device 2 off, just press the button to cycle through to device 1's input. Some other hdmi switchers come with a remote control to do this, but they are more expensive than this one, and since I tend to switch devices off when I'm not using them, it's not something I'll regularly need to do (if ever).

Also worth noting is that rather than fully switch off my htpc, I prefer to put it into sleep mode (like closing the lid on a laptop), so it's technically still on, but only using a tiny amount of power. Both "sleep" mode and "hibernation" mode still work great with the box, and don't confuse the auto switching feature at all.

Overall I'm very pleased with the product. For the price, it's a solidly built, very useful little device.

Very pleased with this product, which switches automatically between the games console and blu-ray player without any problem. I'm planning to buy another.

Does exactly as it says, good quality product. No problems what so ever. I use it to connect internet TV box, and Ipad as I only have one HDMI on TV.
