    3X1 Pigtail HDMI® Switch

    Do you not have enough HDMI® inputs on your TV to handle all your new HD devices? You don't need a new TV and you don't need an expensive or bulky box. Just get this simple HDMI 3x1 Pigtail Switch adapter instead!

    Plug this switch into your TV's input. Then plug the cable from each of your HD devices into the switch. That's it! No special setup required, no power needed, no remotes to program. Just plug it in and start playing.

    The switch has three inputs and supports full 1080p resolution with HDCP pass-through. It can handle up to 12-bits per channel (36-bit total) Deep Color and digital audio, including DTS-HD Master Audio™ and Dolby TrueHD™. It has a 20" cable and gold-plated HDMI connectors for superior signal quality.

    The switch will automatically switch between inputs, depending on which one is on at the time. If both source devices are on, just press the small button on the switch to change the input.

    Features:

    • Supports 1080p video resolution
    • HDCP pass-through
    • Automatic or physical switching
    • Supports 250 MHz/2.5 Gbps per channel (7.5 Gbps all channel) bandwidth

    Works Great! BUT Be Careful Using Longer HDMI Cables

    Pros: Works as stated. Very easy to install.

    Cons: Does not work with longer HDMI cables unless the cables are 22AWG or 24 AWG.

    I bought this Monoprice product from Amazon.com. First of all, I will say that this device works. Set-up was easy - I plugged my Samsung Blu-Ray into Input 1, and my PC into Input 2, then plugged the 3x1 Pigtail into my RCA 42" TV. My Blu-Ray was detected immediately, and the 3x1 Pigtail switched to it. The picture looked great. No problem. Then I set my PC to detect other monitors, and my PC detected my TV, as usual, no problem. I saved the configuration with the TV attached to my monitor set-up. But the problem is, there is no picture on the TV. The 3x1 Pigtail did not switch over, either. So I tried the manual switch on the 3x1 Pigtail. Still, no picture. After about an hour of unplugging and replugging things into the 3x1 Pigtail, turning things on and off and on again, same thing - no picture on TV. I then tried plugging my PC direct into the TV, and then I had my picture back. I tried my wife's laptop direct into the TV, and there was a picture, but when I plugged her laptop into the 3x1 Pigtail, it went back to detecting the TV, but no picture. I then read the ad for the 3x1 Pigtail on Monoprice.com for this product, and it states "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." Amazon does not state this. At least Monoprice does. I am using a Monoprice Select Metallic Series Standard HDMI Cable with Ethernet, 15ft, which is 28 gauge. So, I am suspecting I have to buy a 24AWG or 22AWG cable or a Redmere. So just be aware of this issue if you plan on using longer HDMI cables. And I wish Amazon would have stated that, because I just ordered another 28AWG for my wife to use with this 3x1 Pigtail.

    Works beautifully in my setup!

    Pros: Flawless switching of inputs when devices are powered off and on. 1080p passthrough.

    Cons: Red LED lights are a little bright (nothing electrical tape can't fix). Wouldn't mind if the cable were just a little shorter.

    My Sony TV was purchased back in 2006 and only has two HDMI inputs. I recently got a new Apple TV for my television upstairs (which is connected to an AV receiver with plenty of HDMI inputs), so I decided to move my existing Apple TV to the basement. Of course, with the Blu-ray Disc player and TV receiver already occupying both HDMI inputs on the Sony TV, I needed a way to connect all three devices with minimal fuss. This dandy little switch came up on Monoprice, and am I ever glad it did! Works brilliantly! I connected the Blu-ray Disc player and Apple TV to the new switch, and set up my Harmony remote to power off devices when they're not needed. The switch is intuitive enough to switch to the proper device when I select its corresponding activity on the Harmony remote (i.e. shutting everything else off and just leaving the desired component on). Don't even need to use the switching button on the adapter! Don't know if it would have worked as well if I connected my TV receiver to it, as it is always sending a video signal whether I'm watching something or not, but the way I have things set up, it's perfect. I should note that I'm only using this for video signals (all my audio is routed through TOSLINK cables to the receiver, which, being produced in 2001, has no HDMI ports), so I can't say how well this handles audio through HDMI.

    Pros: easy to use

    Cons: it would be nice if the cable was a little longer

    This is a great product and it automatically switches to the device that you have powered on. The only caveat is that if you have a device that is always powered on you'll have to use the button to select the proper device

    Part ID 8148 3X1 Pigtail HDMI® Switch is an extremely helpful product. I have been able to switch from my roku to my laptop with ease. If one of my devices shuts down the switcher automatically switches to an active device, once i turn on the intended device it automatically switches back. This is an excellent purchase for it ease of use and convenience.

    Pros: Well desgined switch, for my 1080P TV.
    Appears to be well made for the price.

    Cons: Painfully slow paid shipping. Monoprice needs to work on this.
    Question as to future 4k (UHD) compatibility, as nothing is mentioned in the package or online.

    One of the HDMI ports on my TV went on the blink, so I purchased the 3X1 Pigtail HDMI® Switch in order to resolve the problem. Flat-rate shipping was painfully slow, but it came in a blister-pack without damage. The product appears to be well made, albeit the Instruction Manual was laughable. The switch performed exactly as expected and resolved my issue!
