****IF IT DOESNT WORK TRY THIS!****
on 4 February 2012
I got this item and was dissapointed that it didnt work when i tried it with my SKY HD box. It's a new style box and after a bit of research I found the answer (for some anyway!) Im using this with my PS3, when this was on, the swtich worked fine and Sky worked through it. However when the PS3 was turned off Sky would not show on screen. I then found the answer!! The SKY HD box doesnt send enough power through the HDMI cable to power the switch (this item has no external power source). However in the settings on the PS3 you can change them to power the unit and make it work even if the PS3 is off (stand by). Go to System Settings> Control for HDMI > ON. The switch now works as it should do......almost......doesnt auto switch! Hey you cant have it all!!
