    Does this auto switch to a device as it's powered on or do you have to manually hit the select button?
    A shopper on Nov 25, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Hi, thank you for your inquiry. This item is only manually switching and will not automatically switch, so you will need to adjust it accordingly.
    Does this switch automatically as a device is turned on or is it a manual switch?
    David C on Nov 26, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Yes. It switches to the last device that is powered on. If only one is powered on, that is the one you can view. You can use the switch to change the device that you are viewing also.
    How long is the cable on the unit?
    Brian O on Nov 27, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: I received a switch with an overall length of 25 1/2 inches. The cable is 22 1/2 inches not including the cable strain relief.
    One comment mentioned it doesn't work well with a PS4. Is this common?
    A shopper on Dec 16, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: I do not own a PS4. That being said, this pigtail works great with everything I have plugged into it. Presently it is handling an X-Box 1 and a FireTv box. Perhaps this problem with the PS4 could be a bad cable or problems with the HDMI inputs on the TV or the PS4. As far as I'm concerned this Pigtail works great, and I give it 5 stars. As flat screen TV prices drop you are finding fewer HDMI inputs, This Pigtail is the fix.
    Does it work with chromecast?
    A shopper on Dec 28, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: I don't have a Chromecast, so can't answer definitively, but it has worked with everything I have tried, so no reason to think it wouldn't. I have tried 2 different Windows PCs, a 2010 Macbook with a mini-Dsiplayport to HDMI adapter (that did not work with a much more expensive device I had purchased at Best Buy), and of course a BlueRay player. If it does not automatically detect which device is transmitting, or if 2 or more are, you can hit the little select button to switch to the device you want to watch.
    Does signal go in both directions using one source to three tvs one at a time?
    A shopper on Mar 21, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I've not tried it but seems possible. This is a switch not a splitter . You manually select 1,2 or three so you can't drive 3 outs. Hope this helps.....
    Is there something like this that goes the other way? Instead of three inputs I need three switchable outputs so when I use my computer for Facebook and stuff I can go to the computer monitor but when I want to watch youtube or a movie I can hit a button and it switches the signal to go to the TV.
    A shopper on Oct 30, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Look for an HDMI splitter.
    I have Comcast X1. I am having a problem with the two small X1 boxes on 2 tv's but not the main X1 box. Sound is constantly becoming garbled and have to unplug the hdmi connection on one box, and the other small box will not make a connection unless the hdmi plug is unpluged and immediately plugged back in. Wearing the plugs out on TV. Can this pigtail switch be used to work like a on-off switch to stop the constant plugging and un plugging. I would have to buy 2 pigtail switches, one for each TV. Comcast has no idea why this is happening. I would really like a on off hdmi switch that would in line, but I have searched the web and could not find anything like that.

    switch so we do not have to unplug each time the sound on one and the picture on the second????????
    New User U on Jun 1, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Sorry to hear of the issues you are experiencing. It sounds like you may have a defective HDMI cable on your hands. I would first recommend trying to swap the cable with a known working HDMI cable that does not experience this issue.

    You could try out using a switch to be able to power off/on the signal. However, this switch would not have a power button. We do have Product # 6259 that has a power button. If you wished to try it out you are welcome to. We have a 30 day return policy, so if it does not solve your issue you can return it. I hope this helps.

    pigtail switch
    I have two HDMI inputs on my set, 3 video sources to connect: cable, DVD player, and Netflix (VIA Roku). I originally connected cable via one of the HDMI inputs, then connected Netflix and the DVD player via the pigtail switch connected to the other HDMI input. I found that Netflix would not play through the pigtail switch. I had to change it around: Netflix connected to one of the HDMI inputs, cable and DVD player connected to the other HDMI input via the pigtail switch. Everything works ok now, but I almost mailed the thing back until it occurred to me to try connecting the Netflix directly to one of the HDMI inputs and the other two sources through the pigtail switch.

    PROS: Well made
    Easy to install

    CONS: Allergic to Netflix?

    Excellent adapter
    Works great with my DVD,Comcast, and direct tv box. It picks input as soon as you turn on a new output source

    PROS: ease of use

    CONS: Blue indicator light is on the bright side

    Doesn't work with Amazon Fire
    I purchased this to use for my blu-ray and my Amazon fire to share an hdmi port. The issue I am having is that my blu-ray needs to be on to get power to the pig tail. It doesn't get power from my tv or the the Amazon box. This makes it pretty much useless for me as I don't plan on leaving my blu-ray on 24/7. It also doesn't get power from my Directv box as I put this into the mix to try and make it work.

    HDMI Pigtail
    Exactly what I needed for a new 4K Samsung TV with less than needed HDMI ports. Easy for everyone in the family to use.

    Works well with most devices except PS4
    Switch works great with most devices but doesn't work well with the PS4 (very unstable). It seems like the splitter draws more power than what the PS4's HDMI bus can deliver.
    September 9, 2016
    Device works mostly as intended. Mostly.
    I'll be honest: I didn't expect much. Most HDMI switches need to be plugged in to an electrical outlet, but this one works just off the power coming through the cable. Does everything it says it does: I have my blu-ray player and a game console hooked up at the same time, and it automatically switches to whatever is powered on (or you can manually select the input via a button on the cable).

    One problem, however: if I power on my Blu-ray player first, it doesn't seem to get audio until I switch to a different input and then back to the player. Clicking a button a couple times is a lot less work than physically switching cables out, but it's still a problem and isn't as convenient as I'd like.

    But for under $20, I suppose that's to be expected.

    Wow - works great.
    Auto switches perfectly and, surprisingly, my PC displays fine at 4K 60 Hz.!!! It's displaying in 4.2.0 so maybe that's why - but still looks great. Haven't tried 4.4.4 yet but for the price I am very pleased!
