4x2 True Matrix HDMI® Switch w/ Remote (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.

Figured out the universal remote issue

  • Anonymous,

Pros: - Works as advertised

Cons: - None (anymore)

Originally I had issues with the remote. This was a huge issue for me as I have this unit sitting in a closet and I use a wired IR repeater. My remote is a Logitech Harmony One. In this closet I have all of my equipment for 2 rooms. A large rec area and a dedicated HT. I wanted to connect my gaming consoles along with a PC that I can use in either room. (XB1, PS4, WiiU and a PC)
So everytime I switched my receiver to the input where this switch was on, I'd have to walk over to the closet and manually select the correct input.
Neither the original remote, nor the Logitech would work through the IR repeater.
Recently I decided to give it another shot. I think that I found the fix.
When learning the remote codes from the original remote, when prompted, press the corresponding button VERY briefly to learn. Previously, I would hold the button down on the original remote for a few seconds.
This fixed my problem. The switch now works with the remote.

Also, I have no issues with switching speed. It takes a few seconds but that is because the HDMI handshake needs to occur.

Pros: Switch between 4 HDMI devices with ease.
Output to 2 displays at the same time.

Cons: Kinda slow when switching between devices
Idk if this is normal but my switch has this annoying ringing sound that never goes away.

I love this device but my only problem is that it keeps ringing all the time. I have to turn my devices volume louder just to drown it out. I also have to turn it off in order to go to sleep...

Thank you for your review on PID 5312. Truly sorry to hear about the ringing sound that continuously outputs. Just to verify, has this been an issue since the unit was first received? Also, do you happen to have a spare 5V DC, 2A power adapter that we could try with the matrix to see if the ringing persists? If it does, I can assist you in setting up an RMA for a replacement as we cover this product with a one year warranty. It would be of no additional cost to obtain the replacement. Please let me know if you would like to proceed and thank you in advance!

Works but has some flaws

  •  Winnipeg, MB 
  • 10/5/2015 7:48:46 AM

Pros: It does what is described.
Remote is IR so can be taught to other home automation remotes

Cons: There is a 3 second delay changing sources
When changing sources it flashes the other output black even though it is not being controlled
One in a while (1x a month) a handshake issue occurs where it has no sound just video or vice versa

Good inexpesnive unit. I would be interested if there was an updated version that had faster switching and none of the bugs this one has.
Otherwise this unit has saved me tons of money not having the need to buy multiple sources.

It works exactly as advertised

Pros: Excellent features
Well Made
Remote Control

Cons: Display could be a little dimmer

I plugged it in to replace a previous unit (different model) that had stopped functioning on the "B" side. It has been working flawlessly ever since. In my setup, it never gets turned off so I would not be exposed to any issues related to powering on or off, but it does turn off whenever I want it to.

Thank You Monoprice for inventing this piece of electronic heaven!

Pros: I can watch 1 of 4 input options on two different TV's either at one time or simultaneously.

Cons: Matrix is not equipped to be used with a Radio Frequency (RF) remote, only Infrared Remote (IR)

After CyberMonday and buying my living room TV and Soundbar it took me 2-3 months just to figure out how I was going to set up my entertainment system in our living room. I did not want a bulky receiver because I have all my components sitting on my fireplace ledge and wanted to keep it a sleek, simple look, without sacrificing all my entertainment options. I also wanted to split the feed to my little kitchen TV also. And this solved everything in one shot! Thank You Monoprice! (Also saved me the $6.50/ month Directv charges for another receiver that I have been able to eliminate for the kitchen.) *Make Sure To Read Instructions On What Order To Power On Components as it will effect the "handshake" (communication of components to one another) perfect example of how beautiful this thing works. One Sunday my father came by to hang out, we were able to turn the kitchen TV on and keep an eye on the Golf Tournament while at the same time in the living room watching a movie on my Apple TV. Can't wait til football season. *Remember you can't watch two different channels if one feed is your satellite/cable, you would need two separate independent feeds to watch satellite/cable on two different TV's on two different networks. I have satellite on one feed, Apple TV on second feed, BluRay on third, and 4th open to plug up my laptop via HDMI. (Just to give people an idea of how to use it) When entertaining I usually put music (Pandora) on one TV, then put television (satellite) on mute to have something on.
