    5x1 Digital and Analog Audio/Video to HDMI® Converter Switch

    Do you have a Wii®, PS2®, PS3®, Xbox 360®, and PC, and are looking for a way to hook them all up to your big-screen HDTV? Or are you an AV enthusiast with an older AV receiver, without HDMI® inputs and some older equipment with only DVI or Component outputs? This Converter/Switch is just what you need!

    Until now, most AV switches supported just one type of video input - either component or HDMI, but not both. And if you have DVI, well, you've got to buy a converter to turn it into HDMI before you can use that. Now Monoprice offers the ultimate power-user's Video Converter Switch with HDMI, DVI, and component video inputs, plus a built-in converter module for HDMI video output.

    The unit has two HDMI inputs, which is normal enough and lets you plug in your PS3 and Xbox360. The third input is set for DVI (digital, single-link) signals, so you can connect to your PC. The last two inputs are Component (YPbPr) video, so you can add your Wii and PS2. The DVI and Component inputs each allow for Analog stereo L/R, Digital Coaxial, or Digital Optical (Toslink) audio inputs.

    The output of the unit is standard HDMI for your HDTV or for use with another switch, splitter, or HDMI matrix. Along with the audio on the HDMI signal, it also simultaneously outputs audio in Analog stereo L/R RCA, Digital Coaxial, and Digital Optical Toslink, so you can connect to your amplifier and get a room full of sound, no matter what type of inputs it supports.

    Switching between inputs can be done manually with front panel controls, by using the included remote control, or by hooking up a computer to the RS232 connector and sending programmed signals. The unit remembers which input source was last used and will return to that source whenever it is powered on.

    So, whether you're a power gamer or an AV enthusiast with older, but still serviceable, equipment, this Converter Switch is just what you've been looking for!

    video switch
    over all,a good buy. Other than the remote issue, it works perfectly.
    Not all that big of a deal though, since I have to be present to load /
    unload a DVD or Wii disk anyway.
    I would recommend this product for use in a similar situation.

    PROS: solved the "limited Number" of HDMI ports un my tv issue

    CONS: the remote quit functioning after 2 days

    Great Product!
    This product offers an excellent solution for the problem I had. Older TV and receiver, but both work just fine. I had very limited aux inputs on the receiver and only one HDMI on the TV. This product lets me plug in a Wii, Mac mini, apple TV, and DVD player and managed to simplify my control as well. RS-232 control is fast and reliable and protocol made it easy to integrate into my control system.

    The product will not switch to a component source if the device attached is not powered on. I wish that could be overridden, but again, the serial communication made it easy to program around that.

    All in all, great quality product that offers a well-designed solution for a likely common problem at a great price point. Even the cons I listed were nor so much negatives as they are suggestions for features that would make this product even better! Thanks again, Monoprice!

    PROS: Converts multiple formats to HDMI output
    Support for Analog RCA, Toslink and Coaxial Digital audio
    RS-232 control with simple protocol and unsolicited feedback.

    CONS: Would like to be able to tweak some more settings. Audio levels can vary from source to source, would love some input gain compensation.
    Conversion of component sources seems rather hi-gain, video-wise. Would be nice to adjust that.

    works as described
    I have a HD cable box via HDMI, an Apple TV 2 via HDMI, a DVD player via component video, and wii via component, for in puts. For outputs a home theatre system via toslink and a TV via HDMI. I did require 24 AWG HDMI cables - otherwise I didn't get a picture. I haven't used the the wii or the dvd a player a lot yet, but so far everything works as expected and I don't have any complaints.

    PROS: Works exactly as described. No unexpected issues.

    CONS: Its big, 17 or so inches - it would be nice if it was smaller - but honestly I'm not sure that's even possible with the number of connections on this thing.
    The indicator lights are bright, as mentioned in other reviews - but not really a big deal for me.

    HDMI Switch
    Outstanding

    PROS: Outstanding piece of equipment. Good design, solidly built, does everything as represented, good price.

    CONS: None

    Great converter and switch-SUPER sound source modifier
    Other than the 2 power cable issues (see CONS) all else worked as promised.
    Didn't test it yet with HDMI INPUTs.
    I used the following setup:
    INPUT:
    YUV1 - RGB (video) + OPTICAL (audio)
    YUV2 - RGB (video) + COAXIAL (audio)

    OUTPUT: HDMI (video) directly to TV + COAXIAL (audio) to RECEIVER.

    The funny thing is that when selecting YUV1 (which has OPTICAL input) you have to select the TOSLINK (optical) output to hear sound. Since i only have one COAX cable connected from SWITCH's output to RECEIVER's input, i expected the COAXIAL output would always stay unchanged.
    That is not true in the case mentioned above, it somehow overrides the output with the Optical input.
    Not a pain, just a funny thing.

    GREAT TOOL also for switching between multiple INPUT audio sources too.
    That part is overlooked by the main video switching, but think that you can bring in audio via HDMI, optical (toslink) or coaxial cables and take it out to the receiver or TV in any of those 3 formats or simply in L/R analog.

    VERY IMPORTANT: the switch allows PARALLEL outputs on all 3 formats (Optical, Coax and Analog), so good news for those multizone audio fans. Basically, you can feed 3 amplifiers with the same incoming signal.

    WARNING: don't remember seing that in the main product page, but mind you it only supports HDMI 1.2a (now we're at 1.4). Depending on your needs, you may want to consider that too.

    Never used the DVI and the RS232 (PC) INPUTs.
    The DVI INPUT can be easily used as the 3rd HDMI input by using a DVI to HDMI converter and a regular HDMI cable. No signal loss on that setup.

    PROS: Packaging is perfect, clean, printed manual is decent, remote is small and cute, memory function (last setting remembered) helps a lot.

    CONS: 1) Big cons: POWER CABLE is VERY SHORT for such device 1m (3 ft). This device is supposed to be used in a towered setup, therefore a longer cable would be expected.
    2) Power plug includes the transformer, which is HUGE and eats up 2 slots.
    Gave it one star less because of these top two power related aspects which are a real nuissance and could have been dealt with at this price (at least the cable length!).
    3) Too bright red LEDs. Still not sure why in the world some manufacturers use these strong illuminating leds that would go better in a flashlight. The purpose of a LED is to be seen, not to blind you.
    4) Not really a cons, but I am not clear what the remote extender does, manual does not cover that. I assume it gives a longer operating range.

    5/5
    It works great The lights light up only when there is something Plug in. there is no problem going from one input to an other. We like it very much.

    No Sound unless video signal is sent
    I recently decided to replace and expensive stereo with an inexpensive sound bar, and adding this switch was art of that plan. This was a perfect drop-in replacement for the video switching part of my old HDMI capable receiver. The fact that this unit converts YPbPr and DVI to HDMI and combines the audio signals all on to one HDMI cable means I was able to send the switched signal way across the room above my fireplace, no problem.



    Sadly, My old receiver had a connection that was not covered by this unit: a Record Player.



    I could plug in a Raspberry Pi to just the "Y" channel of the component and get a signal to go across, but unless there was some sort of video signal, there was no way to send the sound across the HDMI. I will be asking for a return. This unit was much more expensive than the simple HDMI switchers offered elsewhere on this site, and I cannot justify the cost for myself in this case.

    PROS: Simple

    converts DVI or Component to HDMI

    Cobmines analog or digital sound with picture seamlessly

    IR extender helps get the IR receiver out of the cabinet

    CONS: Sound is not carried without a video signal

    Good Product
    Tested all the inputs and outputs they work great. Finding a product capable of mixing dvi and digital audio to hdmi out proved difficult, but of course monoprice had one. Side note: I had to update my pc's graphics card software to get the switch to relay this signal, so try that if you are having trouble.

    PROS: Costs much less than similar products elsewhere, fully functional as advertised

    CONS: I wish it were hdmi 1.3 or higher

    Great Box Does what it says
    Overall very impressed with the product. Some minor issues with the repeater but nothing that wasn't solvable


    PROS: This box solved a lot connection issues with my new TV and receiver setup providing me with all the additional switching and conversion options I needed. The ability to convert any source of audio to any of the selected outputs is fantastic

    CONS: the connection on the IR extender is very tight on the last click making it deceiving as to whether or not it was fully connected. Once I realized the last 1/16th of an inch was not part of the collar it works better. The extender isn't the best though so I may be plugging in an extra lead to my dual band IR repeater

    defective 5 x 1 HDMI converter switch (8146)
    does not work on my Blu Ray player at all , gives everything a heavy blue tint. People look like the blue man group. Hooked it up to my Samsung smart LED TV with cabling advised by monoprice (30' 22awg heavy gauge) and using monoprice 6' 24 AWG for the component hookups. Do not know if this is a defect inherent to this unit as other reviewers have mentioned "magenta" discolorations but will have to return everything if monoprice cannot solve my problem and I tried other HDMI cables and that did not help

    PROS: only works for my set top box

    CONS: does not work
