Product Details

3-Port HDMI Switch with 3D and IR Remote

Three methods of operation are available with this mini 3-port HDMI selector switch. Different sources such as cable boxes, upscaling DVD players, Blu-ray players, and game consoles may be switched automatically, manually, or by using the included IR remote and 36" long remote IR target. HDMI v1.3b compliance guarantees 1080p HD performance, and a built-in amplifier boosts signal for use with cables up to 25 meters long (24 AWG). A small 3/4" H x 3-1/4" W x 2-1/4" D chassis makes this switch easy to conceal. Power supply included.

3-Port HDMI Switch with 3D and IR Remote
3-Port HDMI Switch with 3D and IR Remote is rated 2.6667 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't perform well at allThe 3 in 1 switcher I purchased doesn't work like it is designed to do. I hooked up my streaming device directly in the HDMI port on the back of my TV and the cable and Blue ray player to the switcher. When a movie is played on the Blue ray player, every 5 minutes the movie goes blank and then comes back on. It's very annoying. I'm probably going to have to return it, but will buy a higher quality of a product if one is available from Parts Express.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from OK switch, poor IR.As an HDMI switch, the unit works fine. Unfortunately, I bought it mainly because it could be controlled by an IR remote. First issue is that the range of the transmitter is less than 3ft (!). Initial thought was the remote battery but that checked out OK. I confirmed it's just a terrible remote (and not a poor sensitivity receiver) because when I used it to program a learning remote, the range was just fine. Second issues is (as reported in another review), I found that the LG TV "volume up" command is recognized by the switch as "HDMI 3"! However, the reverse is not true (i.e., sending "HDMI 3" does not affect the TV volume) which leads me to believe that it's the switch IR decoder that's poor. This issue makes it pretty useless to me. There's also some mention in the manual about an IR "learning" capability in the switch itself but no real explanation as to how to use it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from elegantly simple solutionMy elderly mother had difficulties navigating the on screen input selection menu on her new flat panel TV. I installed this to let her switch between cable and DVDsimply by pushing one button.She can now easily go between the two mediums she uses without frustration, and I no longer get "what do I do?" phone calls! Well worth the price!Only complaint is the poorly written instruction sheet. This unit isn't entirely "plug and play"- after the cables are all plugged in and the unit is powered up, you have to press the 'select' button on the switcher box for it to recognize the source(s).Once I figured that out (and the fact that one of her HDMI cables was the victim of her cat 'Spawn' and his evil cord munching ways) the unit works perfectly!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cannot recommend this productI never could get the remote to work properly, but maybe I was doing something wrong. It was very difficult to get the battery compartment open. But the remote isn't necessary for operation -- the unit senses when a new signal comes in over an input, and switches automatically. So I tried using it for a couple of days.I had to give up when I noticed that audio and video from the Roku slipped out of sync. As soon as I removed this unit from the chain, the problem went away. I tried with multiple cables, and confirmed that cables weren't the problem.I think there's a reason this thing is so much cheaper than most HDMI hubs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does exactly what it needs to do and does it wellI have a cable box and xbox going to my TV but only one HDMI. This switches them perfectly and automatically. Nice that it has the remote to be able to switch them manually but whenever the other has a signal come on, it just automatically switches. Perfect for my application.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Works ok.The manual switching function works well, signal quality thruput is good, IR function seems poor, in that commands from my other LG remotes seem to cause it to switch inputs. This has caused me to disconnect the IR input dongel and use just the pushbutton switch.
