    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!

    Features:

    • Two HDMI audio/video inputs with support for compressed (LPCM) and uncompressed (DTS-HD Master Audio™ and Dolby TrueHD™) audio
    • Two Component video inputs with associated Analog L/R, Digital Coaxial, and Optical Toslink audio inputs

    • Built-in video converter to convert DVI (digital single-link) and Component video inputs to HDMI output
    • Built-in audio converter to convert Analog L/R, Digital Coaxial, and Optical Toslink inputs to HDMI, Analog L/R, Digital Coaxial, and Optical Toslink
    • Supports simultaneous audio output on HDMI, Analog stereo L/R, Digital Coaxial, and Optical Toslink outputs, regardless of audio input type
    • Supports video resolutions up to 1080p
    • Supports 165 MHz/1.65 Gbps per channel (4.95 Gbps all channel) bandwidth
    • Supports 8-bit per channel (24-bit all channel) deep color
    • Supports uncompressed audio, such as LPCM for HDMI input
    • Supports compressed audio, such as DTS® Digital, Dolby® Digital, DTS-HD Master Audio™, and Dolby TrueHD™ for HDMI input
    • Supports Digital Optical (Toslink), Digital Coaxial, and Stereo Analog audio for the DVI and Component video inputs
    • Rack mountable (brackets not included)
    • Gold plated video and audio connectors
    • FCC, CE, UL (Canadian and US), and RoHS compliant

    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

    Excellent device but with a problem.
    Excellent unit but unfortunately failed after 15 months and only has 12 month warranty.

    PROS: This unit is the perfect solution to using new devices with older A/V systems. My entire A/V system is built around it. I have experienced very few problems except for the ones listed in cons section. The unit converts audio and video flawlessly and all audio outputs are active at the same time. It is exactly the type of device I was looking for.

    CONS: I have 2 minor issues and one MAJOR issue. The first minor issue is that the unit will not switch inputs without cycling the power after the unit has been in use for a few hours. The second minor issue is that the red LEDs are WAY too bright on the front panel.

    My major issue is this: the unit simply stopped working after 15 months, and it only has a 12 month warranty! It powers on, but will not switch inputs and outputs no audio or video. Extremely disappointing. I would expect a nearly $100 unit to last longer than this. To Monoprice: do you guys want to make this right by replacing the unit or at least giving me a great price on another one? I feel cheated. My review would have been 10/10 if the unit had not failed!

    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.

    Converter Switch
    MonoPrice Customer Service was AWESOME. First when the switch did not work right, they sent me a new switch and the label to send the old one back. When the second switch did not work, they provided me a return on that also, again with free shipping. They stood behind their product completely and were prompt in their credit back to my card. This was my first return with them, so I did not know what to expect. Their support is why I give them my business - fantastic customer service. THANK YOU!

    PROS: Concept of the switch was great-this was the only place I could find a switch like this

    CONS: Unfortunately it did not work to convert my HDMI equipment to a DVI and R/L audio output for my older TV

    Exactly what I needed... however it didn't work
    I bought this for an older A/V Receiver (Pioneer Elite w/no HDMI) and older 720p/1080i Projector (Sharp XV-Z 2000) that only had a DVI input. Unit would not sync at all on my projector. Tried 5 different devices and each input type with no luck. Then I tried the switch on my brand new plasma... and voila... it worked. The issue here is that the product is meant for people with older equipment that might not necessarily support HDMI... to me this includes the output. A DVI Cable with a DVI-to-HDMI adapter should be a supported option for output.

    Worked with Monoprice support on 2 or 3 occasions to try and get this to work on my projector but all attempts failed. Monoprice support and return process was FANTASTIC. This product just did not meet my needs based on it's advertised description. That being said I am and will remain a loyal customer.

    PROS: Simple. Good Variation of connection types.

    CONS: 1st unit showed up DOA. 2nd unit worked, but only on a TV that supported HDMI input. Optical ports were a bit flimsy.

    Response from Monoprice
    Sorry, I forgot to set a rating. I give MONOPRICE a 10 for support... SWITCH gets a 3 for good effort... poor execution.

    Doesn't work
    Really disappointed, bought this to hook up (original) playstation and XBOX as well as a blue ray/DVD player. Playstation picture is grainy, with lines and in black and white, XBOX won't work at all and DVD player is great except the colors are wrong. My kids ripped up the box before I realized it and now can't return it. Tried working with tech support however its all online which is very difficult to work with and convey issues. I should have read the many negative reviews before buying.

    CONS: Can't get it to work

    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

    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.

    CONS: None

    Saved me from buying a new receiver
    I was shopping for a new receiver since I needed HDMI switching, then I realized that this device and my Logitech Harmony would suffice.

    The Harmony knows all the IR codes and features for this device so that's all sorted and rolling--and I can put off a new receiver purchase for another generation or two.
