from "Automatic Switching"....must depend on the inputI hate to complain about it since it's so cheap, but do yourself a favor and buy one with a remote if you don't want to be manually switching inputs. I have a PS3, XBox360 and Cable DVR box going in to one of these. This signal is then split to the TV in the basement and the one upstairs in the living room. Turning on either the PS3 or Xbox will automatically switch to the active input. The cable box however will not switch automatically, so if I want to watch the cable box upstairs I have to go downstairs and push the button (I'm not lazy, it's just inconvenient). I've tried switching it with one of the other inputs with no success. I've tried turning the cable box off and on again with no success. Perhaps the cable box doesn't put out enough "oomph" through the HDMI to kick it over, but I'll be upgrading to a switch with a remote very soon.

from Apple TV/DVD Player HDMI SelectorSimilar to the Roku review, I needed to switch between a newly acquired Apple TV and the DVD player that feeds the HDMI input on our 1080p home theater projector. This device does the trick, has a nice little LED to indicate which of the 3 inputs is selected and a button to manually make a selection if needed. It will sense the input that is "on" and select that input. Works best when other devices are turned "off." This worked just as I needed and was an inexpensive solution. Now we are streaming Netflix with the Apple TV (another great, inexpensive device) and able to watch a DVD movie.

from ROKU/DVD inputsI needed a 'switch' that would allow me to play either a Blue Ray DVD or my Roku into the one open HDMI input available on my TV. This works well except for the fact that I have to manually change the input because the Roku is always "on." It won't automatically switch from the DVD player to the Roku or vice versa. No big deal.
