Did not switch automatically,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Neet® - 3 Port HDMI AUTO SWITCH BOX with REMOTE - 3x1 HUB (3 way input 1 output) - 1080p Full HD - v1.3b HDMI Switcher (Electronics)
Unfortunately, it did not switch automatically to the powered up HDMI input. It only worked manually. In my case the inputs are from a Sky HD box and an Orange TV box. When I first opened the package, there were a few surprises. Firstly, they did not include the invoice. The package also includes something which is not shown in the product image, i.e. an infra-red sensor on a long wire, which you connect to the switch for the remote control. The switch also has a 5V input, which should not be necessary because the switch is powered via the HDMI inputs, but the instructions state that it is sometimes necessary to attach a 5V power supply. There is a tiny user manual supplied, but it contains statements such as "when the source devices are on the stand-by mode, the power supply should be turned off, otherwise this switcher can not meet intelligent function" and "when plugged in or out this switcher is completely intellegent".
I disagree. I'm going to send it back.

the switch is an autoswitch... however the devices you connect to switch must have the CEC function that will send a command to the switch .. sat boxes do NOT send the command by design .. as you would not want the switch to be forced to another input every time a sat box came on to record something in the background whilst you were watching a DVD on another input for instance .
as you are connecting 2 sat boxes The solution is to use the remote control which is provided.
we do not send paper invoices out with every package that we send out as we try to limit all packaging to a minimum .. in an effort to reduce our carbon footprint .. we are more than happy to provide an electronic invoice upon request.
