    Can automatic input switching be entirely turned off? (Is it possible with the USB connection?)

    I bought this product about a year ago. I just bought a Xbox one X and the switcher will not pass 4K. Does anyone know if there is a firmware update I can do via the service port? Thanks
    Richard P on Nov 10, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Hi Richard,

    This unit supports 4K at 10.2gbps of bandwidth. If looking to support a larger amound of bandwidth, we would need to recommend another unit that better supports your requirements.

    Thanks for asking.
    Will this switch HDMI port automatically without CEC? Use case: I have a FiOS Cable box that sends a HDMI signal constantly. When I turn my XBOX on, will it switch to the XBOX even thought the cable box is sending a single at the same time?

    Anyone having issues with PS4 Pro and this switch? Only getting a black screen when connected to the switch, but works when directly connected to TV.
    A shopper on Mar 22, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Won't work with my PS4 Pro. Very disappointed, whole reason I bought it.
    Does this support HDR?
    A shopper on Nov 21, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: This does not support HDR output on my Roku Premiere Plus
    I already have the older Blackbird 4K Pro (15263). Does the 21614 have a separate IR remote than that? That is, can I use both with a Harmony together and not have them interfere with each other?

    BEST ANSWER: The two units use completely different IR Codes. They will not interfere.
    Are the IR codes for this available somewhere?
    A shopper on Mar 3, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Hi Shopper, the IR codes are not available for this device. We recommend using a learning remote if you plan on using a secondary control remote.
    Someone in an earlier question said that his Roku does not work with HDR using this switch. I don’t have Roku, but does this device really support HDR or not?

    The specs for this unit say it supports 18gb/s HDMI, so does that mean it will support full DCI 4K and will it work with a Sony VPL-VW675ES 4K projector (compatible electrically)?
    Mark W on Mar 24, 2018
    Does this device support CEC? Meaning would it automatically change switch to the input it detects activity on?

    Does this unit come with the 5v power adapter?
    A shopper on Oct 12, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: The unit does ship with a power supply
    How do I get this to work with an Xbox One X?
    A shopper on Feb 8, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: No special tricks needed - just connect it with HDMI cables.
    Can I use this with the HDMI out being a single active RedMere HDMI cable going about 60ft to a projector?

    BEST ANSWER: I would think that if the 60 ft cable works without the switch in the signal path, then using the switch would not be a problem
    will send out a 2.o signal while defeating HDXP 2.2?
    A shopper on Dec 4, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Hello, I don't know exactly what you mean by defeating HDCP 2.2, but it supports HDCP 2.2 as well as backwards compatibility with HDMI 2.0. I hope this helps, thank you!

    Poorly described. Poor in function.
    The switch is a 10.2gbps switch instead of the 18gbps as described here. The manual, box, and label all describe the switch as HDMI 2.0, but that is simply not true if the switch is 10.2gbps as the manual states. It is an HDMI 1.4b switch with an HDCP upgrade.

    The auto-switching also works poorly. The $12 switch that this one was intended to replace did a far better job of sensing which device is currently active and switching accordingly. This switch gets confused with always-on devices and ignores newly powered devices. The correct behavior is to default to the always-on item, switch to newly powered items, then switch back to the always-on item when the second item shuts down. This switch just stays on the always-on item, ignoring your intention to use a different source.

    Big thumbs down.

    Simple and effective
    I'm using this switch to connect gaming consoles to my TV. It switches quickly and without issue, and doesn't seem to degrade the picture at all. Being a parent I haven't actually spent a lot of time gaming since I bought it, so I don't know if it introduces any noticeable lag.

    The product description doesn't make this clear, but the IR receiver is not built into the box. Instead it is attached to a long wire plugged into a mini jack on the front of the switch. This turned out to be a boon for me, since I didn't have to put the switch itself near my Harmony Smart Hub or its IR blaster and simplified cable management.

    The manual that comes with the switch is not complete. It provides no information about the purpose of the circular arrow button on the remote, and doesn't contain any guidance about positioning the IR receiver.

    The product doesn't appear to have any actual model number, either, which made integrating with my Harmony remote a little more work. I ended up creating a new device:
    Manufacturer: Monoprice
    Model Number: Blackbird HDMI Switch

    PROS: Small
    Fast switching
    Easy to set up

    CONS: Manual is useless
    Heavy for its size
    No mounting holes

    Not to HDMI 2.0 Spec
    The manual that ships with the switch states 10.2gbps bandwidth. HDMI 2.0 Requires 18gbps. This is kind-sorta HDMI 2.0, but only with a bunch of qualifiers.

    Monoprice needs to describe the switch properly on their site.

    Not to HDMI 2.0 Spec
    The Good: Build quality, physical size, and power supply are all perfectly fine.

    The Bad: The product description here states 18gbps of bandwidth, which falls in line with HDMI 2.0. The box that the switch ships in is labelled as HDMI 2.0 5x1 Switch. The manual states that the switch is HDMI 2.0. The manual then goes on to state that the switch runs at 300mhz, supplying 10.2gbps of bandwidth. These are HDMI 1.4 numbers. Also stated in the manual is that 4K@60hz is only supported at 12bit 4:2:0. HDMI 2.0 is specified at 4K@60hz, 24bit 4:4:4.

    The switch will work fine for most of today's 4K, sub-60hz content, but you will eventually find properly defined HDMI 2.0 sources that don't allow control over color depth that will fail to function on this falsely labelled switch. Poor form, Monoprice.

    Fantastic
    I wish they had an updated 8:1 version that supports 18Gbs HDMI 2.0 / HDCP 2.2 as I already ran out of ports. I cannot fault the product for my issues. I

    Awesome Product
    I just received my unit today after waiting for over a month for Monoprice to receive new stock. The wait was worth it. I have a LG 65UB9200 TV which is a 2014 model. it only has one HDCP 2.2 input. I have 4k DirecTv as well as the new Samsung UHD Blu Ray Player, UBD-K8500. So I now have two devices which require HDCP 2.2 inputs. This is the reason why I purchased this model. I choose the 5 input model in order to have additional capacity to expand if deemed necessary.

    This little device packs quite a punch. It is very, very well made even though it comes from China. The body is made of metal and has a nice weight to it. It will stay put and not move around once placed. It took of all 2 minutes to hook up. Really easy process. Works like a charm. It auto switches inputs. No need for the remote which is included. No HDCP 2.2 handshake issues at all. Switches inputs very quickly as well. A very solid switcher that I hope will last for years to come.

    If you are in the same situation as me and are on the fence about this product, fear not. It is very well made and works flawlessly. Purchase with confidence.

    PROS: No HDCP 2.2 handshake issues
    Switches inputs very quickly
    Auto Switches inputs

    CONS: None

    Not HDMI 2.0 compatible. Doesn't work with PS4 Pro
    Like everyone else says, website says it supports 18Gbps when the manual states it only supports 10.2Gbps. Will not pass the signal through on PS4 Pro. Wasted money on shipping! Do not buy!
    April 6, 2018
    Great for the money!
    In the few weeks that I've had it, the switch has worked great. It's a tight squeeze if you use all the HDMI ports on the back. I have three 4K sources. I've had no issues 4K content.

    4K HDMI switch
    This 4K HDMI switch is very nicely made, reasonable pricing, nice little remote, but I can not find a off switch. I a 4K TV but I don't have a 4K Blu Ray player so I can not tell you if this switch is passing 4K though.
