Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's a switchbox, and it does its job well.There's no innovation here. It's just a simple switchbox and it does its job well. I'm using it for 480i, and what a difference it makes to see all my components in 480i. My DVR, DVD player and Wii all play nicely through this box. Video image is great, and there is no sound problems.The build quality is sturdy, and the unit's footprint isn't to large. It fit on a narrow shelf on top of my other components and didn't block ventilation at all.If you're TV only has 1 RGB Component input, and you have multiple Component sources, this switch box is the perfect accessory. Even if you're just using 480i, the difference between Component and composite inputs is night and day.There is a little, tiny remote included. It is easy to lose. If you have a universal remote, have it learn this remote and then tape the included remote to the top of the switch box for safe keeping.What this box doesn't do:It only switch RGB (YUV) Component. No S-Video or Composite transcoding. All the inputs have to be Component. There are optical and analog audio inputs and outputs. These to not mix or get converted. So all you audio sources must be digital or you will have to use the analog (white/red) connections. Advanced Audio tip:If your receiver or TV will automatically select digital/analog input, then you could mix and match the audio. To do that hook up all the optical ports you can, and make sure the switcher's audio out is delivered with both TosLink and RCA cables.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good product, struggles with PS2 inputLike others, I picked this up to extend the life of an older A/V receiver & TV. The unit works well and I've been able to "teach" my cable box remote to switch the inputs.I've had problems with bright picture distortion and breakup. Also, I haven't been able to program the power key to allow system on/off with the touch of a button.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good enough for the moneyI had this switcher when it used to be sold for quite a bit more money under the "Impact Acoustics" label. Good enough for the money, seems to pass signal just fine.

Component Selector w/Remote and Digital Optical 3-In 1-Out

How is it for just audio?

I'm looking for an optical switch to handle just the digital audio section of my HDTV broadcasts. I have the HDMI box (180-636) for switching the different components but for some reason, the optical digital output from the TV doesn't want to send an audio signal to the surround sound system. I'm guessing I'll have to take individual opt cables from each component. I'm hoping this will work.
Asked by: Deuterom
This will work fine for your application, these are used all the time for audio-only switching.
