    2X1 Mini HDMI® Switch w/ Optional Power Input

    When all you need is a simple switch to choose between two input source devices, you will be hard pressed to find a better solution than the Monoprice 2x1 Mini HDMI® Switch!

    Note that this switch has regular HDMI Connectors. The "mini" in the title and description refer to the size of the switch, not the type of connectors it uses.

    This small switch automatically switches between two input devices, depending upon which one is turned on. It is powered by the HDMI source, so no external power supply is required (though one can optionally be used if one of the devices has a weak signal output strength).

    The switch handles High Speed (1080p) signals with High Definition audio and 12-bit per channel Color Depth. A manual switching option is available via a button on the top of the unit, in case you don't want to turn off the unused source or your source continues to power the HDMI cable when in standby mode.

    Note: Monoprice strongly recommends the use of minimum 24 AWG HDMI cables when connecting a device, such as this switch, between the source and destination devices to ensure minimal signal loss and maximum High Speed signal reliability.

    Works Geat

    Pros: Small, compact, easy to find a place for.

    Cons: None so far.

    Needed this because we have two HDMI devices and only one remaining free HDMI port on the TV. Bought this to fix that situation.

    Set up is easy ran an HDMI cable from the port to the switch, then connected both devices into the switch. End of story.

    The switch automatically senses which device is on and chooses that device. If not you can switch it manually. No problems for me with either type of operation.

    If you have a similar situation but all means, get this switch. And oh, yeah, it is small....smaller than an Altoids mints tin.

    2x1 Mini HDMI Swtch

    • Steve M.,

    Pros: It does work well, it saves my wife from playing with the other remotes.

    Cons: the only problem is that the input must be powered down to switch to the other input.

    The unit works well the only thing is I under stude that it would switch between the two inputs if they were powered up one at a time. It does not work with ROKO because it does not see power off.

    Works Great. Needed to add AC power though

    Pros: Works great and no longer need to switch between source inputs and no longer have to explain to the significant other how to watch a movie

    Cons: Little to no details on what the specifications are for the "optional" power input. Uses 3.4mm OD, 1.3mm ID plug.

    Was using this without issue for years. Was having some issues with my Directv DVR and was upgraded to the latest model, HR 44-700. I had previously had the 34 I believe. There weren't any issues with the HR34 but the HR44 doesn't seem to have enough power on the HDMI output to drive the switch. It would only work when the second device, a Blu-Ray player was turned on as well. Once I added a power supply (5V 300mA) to the switch everything started to work exactly the way it is supposed to.

    Pros: Switches to the source automatically
    Built well
    small unit

    Cons: No Ac plug included

    I mainly use this for my Roku 2016 Usb stick. This hdmi switch box does not come with a ac power plug and it wiould not power my roku completely. I had a spare one and it works fine now. I would recommend this product.
