|Question: The picture from my switch is constantly flickering, even though I have 24AWG or thicker HDMI cables. |
|Answer: The issue could be caused by a device or cable nearby the setup,or in the setup causing interference. Try rerouting cable paths and distancing devices from sources of interference, such as moving routers and other networking cables away from the switch setup. |

|This thing is legit|
|Pros: Worked right out of the box. It is slim and feels like a good quality product in hand. I believe it auto detects the input with signal when you power it on. Either that or gets you back to the input you were last at the last time.
It powers on and does not make any loud pops of any kind through my sound bar. I am very happy with it.
Cons: Lights are very bright. Had to cover them with tape. The power light is of acceptable brightness, but the input selected light is very very bright. My only complain is that the number 1 input is in the front of the unit. I wish that was in the back and that the 4th input was up front. Maybe its just my OCD.
This works as well as i would want it to. I needed an HDMI signal splitter with the ability to output audio via other mediums such as 3.5mm and uptical out. This has it!

|Pros: Working ok with some quirks. Having both Coax and Toslink outputs adds flexibility in connecting to pre-HDMI receiver or preamp. Small. I also like the small remote, although I can see that for some it could be easy to misplace. |
Cons: As everybody says, the lights are way too bright. Fails to sync with some equipment. I would prefer all 4 inputs in the back but this is not a problem for me. I use a ceiling mounted Epson projector and my equipment (thus also the switch box) is off to the side. If I had to look directly at it below my screen, I would do as others have done & cover with tape. I also think it is strange to put input 1 on the front temporary access inputs on the front of equipment in my experience are usually the last in the numbering sequence. And one last thing: I had difficulty getting my OSD (On screen Display) for the preamp to work through the switch. The OSD is required in order to setup the preamp. As with my older 5x1 HDMI switch, my Harmony remote recognizes the switch, but rarely sets it to the correct input. Mainly when using the remote to turn on a DVD, etc., the switch defaults to input 1 and I have to switch it to the correct input using the switch's remote. Naturally I have the unit I most use (Directv) connected to input one in order to minimize this problem.
I have a pre-HDMI about 11 years old) high-end preamp. I have been using a monoprice 5x1, but when adding a ROKU 3 I needed a switch with audio out. I never was able to get the switch to work with my existing Panasonic BDP-85 (2010) DVD Blu Ray player (tried "everything" different ports on the switch, different cables (including monoprice 24AWG 4' as suggested), different settings on the DVD unit, standard and BluRay discs, etc. Sometimes an image would blink on & off the screen briefly, sometimes it would sync for a while & then freeze. Mostly, it gave a Not Supported message with H and V frequency. I had a newer Panasonic player (2013) in the bedroom. I switched players and so far the new one works. I had the same problem with my previous 5x1 monoprice switch but eventually I got it working. I think I recall other reviewers having the same problem. Currently the Coax cable on the audio out on the switch is used only for my 1st generation Roku 3. The audio of my other equipment is directly linked to the pre-amp. Last night, my Directv DVR tuner failed to sync with the switch "blue" cast to image which first cut off the left side of the image, and then (still blue, and dim) did not come up in 16:9. I switched to input 2 on the monoprice switch & then back to input 1 and it was all ok. Ok when I checked it out this morning. On the ODS problem: I have several other pieces of equipment with no HDMI that go to the preamp, and then via a Monoprice ComponentHDMI switch to the 4x1 Monoprice HDMI switch. For some reason, although ODS would not longer work via my pre-HDMI VCR/DVD recorder/player (it did work with the older 5x1 switch), I found it would display on screen through my Sony 400 disc carousel CD player (also pre-HDMI, thus through the preamp the componentHDMI switch 4x1 HDMI switch). Sounds like a lot of negatives, but I am hopeful that I now have it set up so it will work at least as well as it did with the previous 5x1 (no audio out) switch. I certainly don't want to buy a new preamp or receiver until there is a decent selection with HDMI 2.1 and HDCP 2.4 (sorry if I have the version 's wrong) and the kinks worked out. If the switch works adequately, I may not need to upgrade as I have no desire for 3D and probably not for 4K picture.

|HDMI Switcher with audio outputs.|
|Pros: Works as advertised. Small. Well built. Simple to use. Arrived quickly. High quality. Worked perfectly with my wireless headphones.|
Cons: The LEDS are way too bright. I had to cover them up with tape otherwise they are very distracting from all the way across the room. It was like staring into the Sun.
I needed this product to hook up wireless headphones to my TV and game consoles. My TV doesn't have audio out connectors so this did that function. I never noticed and loss of quality in the picture or sound using this device. The sound still outputs to the TV even with the headphones on so that is a plus. Overall a great product. Just tone down those super bright LEDs. They are obnoxious. I covered them up with electrical tape.

|Works but not with a Roku|
|Pros: Splits out audio from HDMI plus is a hdmi switch.|
Cons: Doesn't work with Roku devices
Does what it is suppose to. Works with Fire TV and several other devices I have. Does not work at all with Roku. Will not pass video to my TV at all. Tried 3 different Roku units same result.

Thank you for your review and truly sorry to hear PID 5557 is not working with your Roku devices. Have you tried connecting to a different HDMI port or switching out the HDMI cable in use for your Roku device? What is the length and gauge of the HDMI cable in use? For devices such as switches it is recommended to use 24 AWG HDMI cables as switches tend to put a heavier load on the signal passing through. Using 24 AWG will reduce the chance of signal degradation and improve signal reliability.
Another thing you can try is power cycling the switch. Disconnect everything from the switch including power and cables. After about 5 minutes, plug everything back in and power everything back on. Also try powering everything on from the display and work backwards in the chain to the source device.
Please let me know if anything changes with the above steps so that I may further assist you. Thanks in advance and hope this helps!

|Didn't work with Roku 2 or blu-ray player|
|Pros: Worked (sort of) . Could get audio w/my TV receiver (5.1 DD) , but nothing else .|
Cons: Didn't work with my Roku 2 XS or Samsung BD-F5900 Blu-ray player (no audio) .
Got this after calling monoprice & asking if it would work the Roku to pass the 5.1 . They said yes . It doesn't . Can only pass stereo with it . It also would not work with my Blu-ray player - no audio via streaming or Blu-ray discs . The DTS would not play nor if I switched to 5.1 DD thru the player . It could play audio in French DD 5.1 though ! After chatting w/monoprice I returned it . Good return policy .
