    Blackbird 4K 3x1 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 using 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.

    what benefit does the power cord add?
    Brad G on Dec 1, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Hi and thank you for your inquiry. The optional power input allows the switch to allow for longer runs on the switch. If you will be using runs 50ft or less, then external power is not required. I hope this helps, thank you!
    does this have auto-switching? if so, does it cause the screen to blackout when scenes are cut or blacked out?
    Richard L on Jan 6, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Hello, thank you for your question. No this unit only supports manual or remote selection/switching. I apologize for the inconvenience
    Can these do 1080p60? seems odd it can handle 4k but not get to 60.
    A shopper on Jan 16, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Hello, thank you for your question. Yes this unit does in fact support 1080p@60Hz, we sincerely apologize for the confusion.
    I have an early 2000's year CRT likely with HDMI 1.0 or 1.2. Is the Switch backwards compatible with the original version HDMI ports?
    Marquice L on Nov 27, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Hello, thank you for your inquiry. This item is indeed backward compatible with older versions of HDMI. So please rest assured it will work with your devices. Thanks and I hope this helps!

    Andrew R on Mar 19, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Mine are working. What seems to be the problem with your equipment. I'm using mine for cable, PS4 and Blu-ray player. No issues so far. I've been using it for 6 months.
    Has anyone noticed artifacts on the screen when using this switch? Would using a power adapter resolve this issue?
    Michael L on Mar 26, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I've never noticed any lingering artifacts. I don't receall whether I am using a power adapter (I think not).

    A great HDMI Switch
    A great HDMI switch for displays that are a higher resolution than 1080P. Don't expect Redmere cables to work with it though, even with a power adapter it only artifacted on bios screens and did not display anything else otherwise. Spend the extra money on the 5X one as you never know whats going to happen in the future. I ended up putting screws through the case to mount it on the underside of my desk, there are 4 screws that allow you to take off the metal case and mount it (you have to drill your own holes though)

    PROS: Quick

    Doesn't require power cable

    CONS: Disconnects displays that are not active

    Redmere (Gen1) cables do not work on it

    No mounting options

    Does not come with a power adapter

    Best Switch Period
    My TV didn't have enough HDMI inputs and I Have to many devices to connect.. I started searching for a reliable switch with 4k capabilities something as most up to date with technology as I can afford.

    This switch is the best you can get for the low price. It doesn't need power although you can connect a 5V dc input, because it can draw power from the HDMI itself. It also comes with a remote control. ARC and Dolby Audio pass-through work.

    It has been 2 weeks using it and it works flawlessly.

    Excellent little HDMI switch
    We have several HDMI switches used all day every day in conference room in a business environment. We were seeing some random issues with image quality, weak signal and so on with the switches we initially purchased from another vendor (for more $). Picked up a few of these, swapped them in and all the little issues we'd been seeing disappeared. We have Apple TVs, Chromebox for Meetings, MacBooks... you name it running through these all problem free with excellent picture quality. Couldn't be happier or recommend these enough! And at a bargain price to boot! Thanks Monoprice!

    PROS: Fast switching between sources, excellent picture quality compered to other brands, solid signal even over very long HDMI cables where other switches have failed

    CONS: None yet after a few weeks of HEAVY use.

    Works great, very bright
    I ordered this to eliminat some cables from my wall-hanging TV. I use a Harmony remote and unfortunately this model is not in the database. I tried the 5 port model (which was there) but the 2,3 ports don't use the same frequency, apparently. Any way, I just trained my Harmony with all the IR frequencies from the remote and it works great. It is EXCEEDINGLY bright. Ordered some LightDims to help. By the way I had no trouble using the switch without a power cableHDMI power works fine.

    PROS: -Works accurately and quickly
    -Came with a remote to train my Harmony
    -Does not need additional power

    CONS: -Very bright LEDs

    Works well with Logitech Harmony Hub
    I bought the 113704 switch to allow me to use a Logitech Harmony Hub in order to manage a Raspberry Pi 2 (running Plex) and an Amazon Fire TV connected to an older Vizio TV which has HDMI ports.

    Since the TV in question is in the children's playroom and I don't have a surround sound system connected to it I decided to spend $150 on a cheap AV Receiver in order to control the HDMI input switching between the Amazon FIre TV and the Raspberry Pi 2.

    This switch, like most at this price range, is auto-sensing which can prove problematic when using the Harmony Hub, however after spending the time to set it up correctly I have encountered no issues with using the Harmony to control the switching of the HDMI inputs.

    I have the Raspberry Pi (which is always on) connected to input 1, and the Amazon Fire TV connected to input 2. Input 3 remains vacant for now but may later be used with an XBox 360.

    I did find that the Logitech Harmony Hub did not have this switch (113704) in its database, however it did have the 5 port version. Unfortunately you can't use the 5 port version commands since the wrong hdmi input gets selected.

    I therefore spent 30 minutes programming the Harmony Hub to recognize the IR commands using the original Blackbird switch remote. After having programmed the Harmony Hub the switch has performed perfectly.

    I am giving 4 stars - rather than 5 stars - for 2 reasons:
    1) The LEDs are VERY bright - this can be fixed with some tape or a marker pen.
    2) I wish the switch makers would include a way to toggle on/off the auto-sensing - albeit I have not had an issue with my current set up..

    Awesome! Just one issue the LED are way too bright.

    Works great
    I'm using this with a Samsung sound bar that only has one HDMI input. Attached a Tivo Mini, a Roku Ultra, and a Blu-ray player. As others have noted, the LEDs are a tad bright. Since I'm using this in the bedroom, I muted the LEDs with a small strip of electric tape! Easily controlled with my Logitech Harmony.
