3.0 out of 5 stars Belkin HDMI switch, 1 Jan. 2013
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Belkin HDMI 4 In/1 Out Gold Plated Switch - Black (Accessory)
Am using this with a Humax Foxsat box and Sony Bluray player. The Humax has to be on (not just on standby) for the Sony to be connected. Not a major problem but an irritation. There is a 5v power socket on the Belkin but no power supply is included. If a 5v supply was connected the need to have the Humax on might not be necessary. We also have a KEF sound system and the KEF and Belkin remote controls clash. Selecting input 1 on the Belkin remote turns the KEF off. As it is not possible to change the remote code this makes the remote of little use in our case. The idea of have the remote receiver seperate from the main unit is a good idea as the unit could be placed out of sight with just the small receiver in sight.
Have now connected the unit to a 5v power supply and the auto switching works perfectly whichever output is used and without the need to have another source turned on. The only downside is it does make the price rather high but having tried various other HDMI switches this is the only one that now works with no problem.

Would also be keen to know what was used as the 5v power source. Great to get such a detailed review. Ta.
