    Blackbird 4K 5x1 HDMI® Switch

    In a technology driven world high definition content has become the standard. If you love watching movies and playing the latest and greatest games in HD, you need to be able to connect your HD devices to your display. Normally you would connect each device to an HDMI® input on your display but what if you only have one input? With these switches you can easily change between multiple sources with the included remote or directly on the switch itself, instead of constantly swapping out cables.

    These switches not only push up to 4K HDCP protected video content to your display or TV, they also push compressed audio content, such as Dolby TrueHD™ or DTS-HD Master Audio™, and uncompressed audio content, such as LPCM. Whether your need is at home, at school, or at work, these switches are the perfect portable solution to view HD content from multiple sources on one display without complicated configurations or swapping cables.

    Fine switch - PIP is useless

    • Jamie J,

    Pros: Capable HDMI switch

    Cons: Picture in Picture is worthless.

    Works fine as a HDMI switch but Picture-in-Picture functionality is limited, which is what I purchased it for.

    I was hoping to find a device that could actually stream good PIP on two input sources. The overlayed PIP picture updates every 10 seconds. I want to be able to watch 2 events at once (say 2 baseball games on 2 different chromecast). Not only that but the PIP shows a box for every input, regardless if there is any video on it.

    I would love to have a love view of the secondary source and be able to choose which inputs get overlayed on the main screen (and an ability to swap the two sources).

    Good Product

    Pros: Works great without needing an AC power adapter, at least with short-length HDMI cables. I found it works with my old remote control that came with my old Monoprice switcher, so now I have two remotes.

    Cons: Of course as always the front lights are too bright so you need to place something over them if used in a darkened room.

    So far this switcher has worked to perfection without a power adapter, which is good because bad power adapters appears to be the biggest problem with budget HDMI switchers. I'm hoping that not having a power adapter to go bad means it should work trouble-free for a long time. It also makes the device cheaper. FYI, if you are looking for a good quality AC power adapter I found this one which has a 2 yr warranty and look to be good quality:

    Pros: Might be nice equipment but cant use it in its current form

    Cons: Hard to use if it doesnt turn on or have power

    Ordered one in April, finally went to install my theater setup over the weekend and discovered this ships as a brick only. Theres no power or connectors included

    Hello Brett,

    Thank you for your review and I am truly sorry for the inconvenience you've encountered with the switch. I am truly sorry that no power connectors are included, but this item should work passively. Have you tried to see if it'll work with your setup? Please let me know, thank you!

    Works Great

    Purchased for a TV with only two hdmi ports and it worked right out of the box. I have zero complaints with the device and the price was great.

    Works great with our Logitech Harmony

    Have an old Harman Kardon AVR that doesn't have HDMI and wanted to minimize the number of HDMI cables running to the TV after I mounted it. Also needed something that could be controlled by our Logitech MyHarmony.

    The Blackbird 5x1 does all of this without a hitch.
