    4x2 True Matrix HDMI® Switch with Remote Control (Rev. 3.0)

    If you're like most people, you have your home theater setup in one room, but have TVs in other rooms as well. This gives everyone in the house the ability to watch what they want, when they want. But what if the kids want to watch a DVD while you want to watch the big game in the living room with your friends? You can lug the DVD player to the other room for the kids, but a better solution is to use an this 4x2 True Matrix HDMI® Switch from Monoprice!

    With this switch you don't need to move equipment from room-to-room, nor do you have to buy duplicate equipment for the other room. This matrix provides 4 HDMI inputs, which allows you to connect the Xbox 360™, cable box, blu-ray player, and the output from your Android phone. Any of these four inputs can be independently selected for either of the two outputs. Both displays can select the same or different inputs.

    The switch includes a remote control, allowing direct selection of any of the inputs for each of the two outputs. Additionally, the matrix can be controlled by a computer, via an RS232 serial port, as well as front panel controls.

    The matrix supports the full High Speed 1080p@60Hz HDMI video resolution and features a 6.75Gbps bandwidth, sufficient to support 3D video, 36-bit Deep Color, x.v.Color, and high-definition multichannel audio, including Dolby TrueHD™ and DTS-HD Master Audio™. It is powered by an included 5 VDC, 2A AC adapter. The four input and two output HDMI ports are gold plated to ensure smooth, corrosion-free connections. It measures about 10.2" x 4.5" x 1.3".

    A spare/replacement remote is available as PID 6166.

    Note: Monoprice strongly recommends using 22AWG, 24AWG, or active HDMI cables with Redmere technology to achieve the best results and to ensure minimum signal loss over longer distances.

    Works beautifully - a couple of minor issues
    Works beautifully - except for a few minor issues - so I only deducted 1 point
    1. Sometimes both screens black out momentarily when switching just one screens input.
    2. Sometimes it takes a couple of zaps from the remote to get it to receive a signal -
    a. this could be due to the long HDMI run (50 ft) from my HTPC
    3. The auto smart selection feature can be annoying - you have to remember to switch a device on first before switching the input on the switcher, and if you turn off whatever youre watching, the switcher will automatically switch it to the next input receiving a signal (e.g., I get done with the PS3, turn it off and suddenly the TV is on the screen). It can be a nice feature but would be nice if we could turn it off too. I was able to get around this by programming my universal remote to switch a device on before switching the input on the HDMI Switcher.

    Here are my inputs/outputs (I use it to switch video only)
    1. ATT U-Verse cable box (Motorola VIP1216)
    2. Music Mountain HTPC
    3. Samsung DVD/VCR (DVD-VR357)
    4. Sony PS 3/Blu-Ray
    1. Samsung LCD (LN40A630) split with InFocus Projector IN74 (splitter from Monoprice)
    2. Westinghouse LCD Monitor (LCM-22W3)

    All in all - a great product at a great price!

    Found out comething interesting with this device
    This product works fine as long as you're devices are all HDCP compliant. I used to have a SA 8300 DVR and I did get the message about the HDCP one time, but I reset power to everything and never had the problem after that. I've had D***TV for a while and have not had any trouble. I am also running my devices through the CAT5/6 wall plates, longest run is to my master BR, about 60-70 ft. 1080p works with a Sony BDP 300.

    What was really interesting is that this equipment would randomly turn itself off, sometimes not for a while, other times it would turn off within just a few second after turning it back on. I thought there was an electrical problem and was thinking about buying a high end surge protector/power filter. I actually determined that it was the RF/IR remote control transceiver that was causing the problem (not a monoprice product). I changed the frequency on that device and the HDMI switch has been fine ever since then.

    Unit works well
    Unit works as advertised. Switching works. There is a slight delay to the switching as others have mentioned. The unit does not make any noise and did not degrade the signal at all as far as I can tell - no bit errors. I did not test if this introduced any noticeable latency between the source and output (IE: if this unit has a frame buffer or not) I didn't test the remote much, but it seemed to function.
    If you need to switch video from set top boxes, but nothing that outputs some funky resolutions like a PC will - this will work well.

    PROS: Works great as advertised. Will support some common PC resolutions such as 1680x1050 in addition to standard HD Video resolutions. Everything my Samsung plasma supported, this unit also supported.

    CONS: This will not support resolutions beyond 1080p. So, I cannot send a 1920x1200 image to my 24" LCD. This won't fill my needs, but this unit is a great trick none the less. Tested with Nvidia GTX580, two dell 24" (one is older without HDMI, used a passive HDMI-DVI adapter and worked just fine) and my Samsung PN58B550 (not all at once, of course). I could not use the Nvidia control panel to force the display resolution to 1920x1200. The switcher just was not having it. Lower resolutions worked fine however. I took a risk and tried to get the product to do something it was not advertised to do. It didn't work. Oh well.

    Does what is says
    This is a great switch if you need to have multiple HDMI sources connected to 2 different displays. It does have a slight delay waiting for the HDMI handshake. Many times both displays will go blank even though you are only switching inputs on one set. Like I said, it's brief so don't let that stop you. The only downfall is the remote definitely doesn't work as well as your typical TV remotes do. It's flaky. Sometimes I have to walk up and put the remote right up to the eye. Other times, it might take multiple presses. Then other times it might work fine. Off axis is the worst. All in all, it does what I want it to do. I'd recommend it to anyone.

    PROS: Being able to switch any of 4 sources between two displays.

    CONS: Subpar remote.

    Great product

    PROS: Allows true 2x4 HDMI switching Very clear/clean picture

    CONS: I shut off my A/V system using a outlet so as to reduce any residual power consumption. However when I turn it back on, the unit goes on automatically. Would be nice if it stays shut off until I am ready to turn it on.

    TV in 2 rooms
    This is night and day compared to my last set up. I can watch the same thing on 2 TV's or 1 tv receive dvd signal while the other is on Dish.

    PROS: Works as advertised.

    CONS: None yet.

    Dual Room Matrix Switching
    This matrix switch is great!! I have it connected in my media closet for matrix switching to the family room and master bedroom in my house. My sources connected are two SA8300HD cable boxes, Sony Blu-Ray, and Xbox360, monitor outputs are a Sharp LCD in family and GoVideo LCD in Master. This offers true matrix switching for HDMI at great price! My RF Theater Master remote system switches the unit perfectly.

    I send the HDMI to the master bedroom via a Geffen HDMI over Cat5E extender, I have used this switch to convert my entire home to HDMI and removed my component matrix switch.

    Highly recommended if you are looking for a multi-zone HDMI matrix switch!!!

    Excellent switch
    I have been purchasing quality products from Monoprice and they never disappoint, and great prices I wouldn't think of shopping anywhere else.

    Great product. Running 2 LCD panels using Blue Ray, AppleTV and Cable HD sources.
    The only complaint so far is the BRIGHT blue status LEDs. A little electrical tape will fix that.

    Works mostly
    I would not reccomend this for anyone who does not know all the ins/outs of HDMI and keys. There is poor documentation. No hex codes for control. Did not try the rs232. In the hands of a pro it worked. I guess it would be ok for a hobbyist that was not too picky as well. Interesting experience...for the first few days the client was able to watch a Motorola (1 HDMI key) box on both TVs. I told him it was not supposed to work. Well it did not last for long and then he was very dissapointed. Wonder why it did this? Maybe it was a problem with the moto box?
    It did the job and well for the price but know that this unit is not for the unititiated.
