    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

    HDMI Pigtail

    Pros: Small form factor, reasonable cable length, clear picture

    Cons: Auto-switching feature may not work for you

    Does what it says on the tin switches between three HDMI inputs to let you connect more devices than you might otherwise have space for.

    Unfortunately, mine doesn't seem to do this automatically like it's supposed to when a new device is powered on. I have a cable box, an HTPC, a PS3, and a Chromecast, but my receiver only has three inputs. Tried it in a few different configurations, like putting the cable box and PS3 on the switch, the PS3 and the Chromecast on the switch, the cable box and the Chromecast on the switch, etc. Never automatically switched from one to the other. (The Chromecast and the HTPC are always on, so those wouldn't be expected to work with this.)

    The button to manually switch works, but I've got this all tucked away behind my entertainment center so that's not really an ideal solution.

    Seems Fine

    Pros: Works as advertised.

    Cons: None so far!

    Ran out of HDMI inputs even though I have four on my current TV. So far I've noticed zero degradation of quality in picture or sound (optical out from TV... HDMI in from PS4) using this switcher. I have it for the PS3 and PS4 to share one HDMI input.

    Simple, functional

    Pros: Auto switching, bus powered, 1080p, cheap, no fuss no muss.

    Cons: Doesn't work with my PS3 because apparently it always has an "active" signal even when it's off. This results in the adapter not noticing when the system turns on, thus it won't switch to it automatically. Manual switching works fine, but if that's how it's going to be, I'll just use the other port on the TV.
    Switching to the PS4 while the TV is on causes some kind of signal issue that manifests as light static, and occasional audio pops. Solved by either rebooting the TV, or just not switching while the TV is on. Interestingly switching to the PC while the TV is on does not exhibit this problem.

    Wanted to connect a PS3, PS4, and PC to a TV with only 2 ports. Got this, and for $15 it's perfect.

    Works Great! BUT Be Careful Using Longer HDMI Cables

    • Anonymous,

    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.
