    4x1 HDMI® Switch with Digital Coaxial and Digital Optical Audio Outputs

    If you're looking to expand the input capabilities of your TV of an A/V receiver that doesn't support HDMI®, then Monoprice's 4x1 HDMI Switch w/ TOSlink Digital Coaxial Audio Output (Audio Return Channel, 3D, and CEC Support) may be the perfect solution for you.

    This 4-way HDMI switch also features Optical TOSlink and Digital Coax output ports to keep your A/V receiver in the loop with new HDMI High Definition systems. This switch is 3D capable and and includes support for the Audio Return Channel and Consumer Electronics Control features. It has 4x HDMI inputs and features a built-in audio converter, which will convert the HDMI audio from any of the four HDMI inputs and distribute it simultaneously to the audio output in HDMI, Optical/TOSlink, and Digital Coax outputs. That way you can integrate any type of sound system, even if it doesn't directly support HDMI audio.


    • Supports digital audio output simultaneously - HDMI TOSlink, and Digital Coax
    • Supports highest resolutions up to 1080p
    • Supports 225 MHz/2.25 Gbps per channel (6.75 Gbps all channel) bandwidth

    NOTE: 24AWG or thicker (lower AWG number) cables are HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for best performance. Some devices will require thicker gauge, category 2 cables to work with this switch. For runs up to 15ft, use 24AWG. For runs of 20ft or more, use 22AWG (which is thicker than 24AWG.) Also, some source devices will not work with HDMI cables shorter than 4ft. If you require short HDMI cables, we recommend using at least 4ft 24AWG cables with this switch.

    Great box

    Pros: easy hook up and works well

    Cons: I wish there was a box that had more than just (4) cdmi inputs to the one output

    After talking to one of your tech. reps. I purchased this 4X1 HDMI box with digital/opticalsound output to replace an earlier Monoprice box I had bought that only had HDMI output. It works well and adds toe ability to add multiple devices to my TV system that only had two HDMI inputs to start with.

    Live near an airport? Beware

    Pros: It works great, comes in a colorful cardboard box. Shipping box suitable for cat storage.

    Cons: LEDs too bright.

    The LED lamps on this device are so bright, planes coming in for final approach may mistake them for runway lights. I am not a fussy person , so some translucent tape took care of that feature. The switcher works great, the audio out is as described in the product info, great. There were some difficulties in the initial set up, black screen, "resolution not supported" displayed on the Samsung. Not the switcher's fault, traced to a bad HDMI cable. (Relax Monoprice, it was an old one from Best Buy)

    Works well with my TiVo and Sonos Playbar

    Pros: Good price, Optical out, small size

    Cons: Remote needs a button to cycle through each input. Monoprice needs to have discreet codes to offer its consumers for high-end setups.

    I purchased this unit to work with my new Sonos Playbar. My top of the line Samsung TV doesn't output 5.1 sound to the Playbar, so this unit enables me to preserve 5.1 sound from my TiVo/AppleTV/BluRay into the Sonos Home Theatre Set-up. Since I have a TiVo, and love their peanut remote, I wanted to preserve the use of that remote. Luckily, the Tivo Glo remote can learn codes of other remotes. I was able to easily learn the Power IR code from the Monoprice remote (The switcher needs to be turned off when I turn off the tv because the Tivo is always on and pushing out sound) Learning the INPUT code so I can switch HDMI inputs proved more problematic. After numerous learning tries, I finally got the Tivo Glo remote to learn the Input code for one of the inputs (I had to keep the remotes 1" apart while learning that code) The Monorprice remote is a bit less than desired since in only has a power button, Arc button and individual input buttons (1,2,3,4). No button to cycle thru each input is included and Monoprice doesn't have any documentation on any of the discreet IR codes to offer to it's consumers for high-end setups. Overall, i'm happy it works and I can still only use one remote to control my system.

    OMG Becky, Look at that Bass

    Pros: Works great, Supported by Logitech Harmony too.

    Cons: I lost the directions and setting the DIP switches was a little difficult. But Monoprice had them online which really helped.
    If it's cheap enough, perhaps print a basic version on the bottom?

    I was beginning to think I had to replace my Receiver and Subwoofer because my surround sound sucked.
    I have an older TV and Receiver so my HDMI Sources were plugged into the TV with a TOSlink from the TV to the receiver.

    But no matter what I did, the surround sound, including the subwoofer never worked in this config.

    When I got the kids an Xbox One, it straight out refused to send DD5.1 signaling.

    I found out while researching that my config commonly caused similar issues for other people. The TV only handshakes with the HDMI Source @ 2.0 which prevents the TOSlink from getting anything higher.

    The Monoprice HDMI Switch has single handedly solved all these problems and restored my humble Home Theatre to the sound I knew it had.
    I even gained an extra HDMI input as my TV only had 3.

    Works, but has memory loss

    Pros: When configured properly it seems to work as it should. But you really need to go through the procedure of powering all your equipment on, cycling through the inputs, as detailed in the manual.

    Cons: I don't use this every day, so sometimes it forgets its learned settings from the inputs. I have to unplug the HDMI switch and go through the procedure again. I wish it would retain its settings indefinitely, then have a separate switch (button) to erase its settings and relearn.

    CEC is a pain. I had to turn CEC off on my TV and connect my cable box directly to the TV instead of use the HDMI switch, because whenever I powered off something connected to the HDMI switch, let's say the AppleTV, my TV and the HDMI switch would also power off. I want the HDMI switch to stay the heck on so I can switch to a different input (the cable box perhaps). So now the HDMI switch and Apple TV is off. If I power the HDMI switch back on (so I can change its input), the AppleTV automatically powers on again, and I am in an endless cycle of turning the AppleTV off and having the HDMI switch go off again. This switch really needs a button to turn CEC off!

    Good enough, better than buying a new receiver. Equipment hooked up to my unit - PS3, WDTV, AppleTV as inputs. Using the coax audio out to my Sony receiver. The HDMI video out to my Panasonic TC-P42G15.
