    Does this switch provide auto-switching when an input device is turned on? I'm looking for an HDMI switch that DOES NOT have auto-switching, so if you have a recommendation I'd like to hear it.
    Steve S on Nov 29, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: If theres no input on the display it will auto switch, but ive noticed that turning on a new device will not switch if something is on the display already
    Does this have Hdr passrhrough?
    Suninder L on Aug 28, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Hi Suninder,

    Unfortunately this switch will not support HDR features as they require HDMI 2.0 and HDCP 2.2 compliance. We would recommend going with our more premium PID 21614 Blackbird 4K switch.

    Thank you for asking.
    Can automatic input switching be entirely turned off?

    BEST ANSWER: Hello, thank you for your inquiry. At the moment automatic switching cannot be turned off. I am truly sorry for any inconvenience and thank you for your understanding in the matter.
    What are the four-digit IR codes for this device? I would like to use a universal remote to switch the inputs.

    I have a problem when I am watching something using one of the ports throughout the whole time I'm watching it seems to scan through all the other Ports even though nothing is either plugged in or on. Is it normal?

    Curious. What is the purpose of the USB cable? Power? Is there a need to plug this into a USB connect like a PC to get power?
    Tony K on May 11, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: The device needs per because it is an enhanced switch with an equalizer and remote
    Can you use this to connect hdmi cameras and be able to connect it to a PC and see the cameras in? For live streaming?
    A shopper on Feb 27, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: If your camera has an HDMI output and will stream live video, then yes it will work.
    Does this device permit a soundbar to be controlled with the TV remote? For reference, I have a Samsung 400 Series 21Channel Soundbar and a Samsung Series 6 55-inch UN55EH6000 1080p LED HDTV.
    David B on Feb 21, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Hello, David, I'm afraid I may not have the definitive answer to your question, but here's my thoughts. I have my Blackbird 4K Pro HDMI switch connected, via an HDMI cable, to my Pioneer VSX-524-k AV Receiver. I bought the Blackbird switch in order to have more HDMI input options than the receiver itself offered (4-in; 1-out). Using this setup, all my components can be viewed on my Vizio display and their respective audio heard on my surround sound system. I expect you will have a similar result feeding whatever HDMI-connected devices you're connecting through the Blackbird to your Samsung LED HDTV. The Blackbird's remote control will allow you to select which of its five inputs is being fed to the HDTV. As for the soundbar, it should play as always when connected to your Samsung. You won't be controlling the soundbar with the Blackbird remote; you'll only be controlling which device is being fed out from the unit. TV and soundbar controls will still require you to use whatever remote currently allows for their usage. The HDMI switch works as designed in my experience. Enjoy!

    Best compatibility with our devices
    We purchased a different 4x1 switcher from Monoprice and our Dell desktop PC which we use for videoconferencing would not see or connect to the external display, although all other devices were fine. We returned it and bought this one and it worked perfectly from the beginning. I really like the external IR sensor since we were already hiding most of the cabling behind panels - this let us hide the switcher too.

    PROS: Lots of inputs, compatible with all our devices, small footprint.

    External IR sensor!! So you can hide it behind a panel with just the IR receiver sticking out

    CONS: The small form factor combined with the large number of inputs means it gets a little unwieldy - there are cables sticking out of every surface.

    This is a very good HDMI Switch.
    I've found this switch to be of really good quality. I've had a bit of trouble finding a good HDMI switch over the last year or so. My main issue has been with the switch recognizing my HD cable box. This switch does this very well. I also like the infra red extension which allows for stowing the main unit behind my stereo cabinet. This switch worked straight out of the box with no need to fiddle around trying to figure it out. I recommend it.

    PROS: Plug and play functionality. Good, smooth switching between HDMI sources. No bright LED lights to worry about.

    CONS: The remote extension can be a bit finicky in terms of how it's placed. It has to be just so for the remote signal to reach it. It would be helpful if the sensor had a bit of increased sensitivity in order to resolve this issue.

    Image frequently dropping/flashing
    I bought this a while ago in anticipation of getting too many devices. I finally tried using it today to switch between a PC and a Wii-U. It switches fine, but regardless of which one it is displaying it flashes and drops the image pretty regularly (every 5 seconds or so).

    Works well - need to train Harmony remote
    This switch was a good way to add more ports to my older TV.

    Only issue I have with is that, though Logitech reports it should be compatible with my Harmony Hub remote, it wasn't. But using the included remote to train the Harmony worked satisfactorily.

    1x5 HDMI switch review
    This HDMI splitter works very well. The remote is a nice feature for making multiple changes when playing video games and watching movies.
    Pros: compact easy to hide, lots of ports, compact remote and IR cable to place in convenient place
    Cons: signal pass through not great for high data rate. Xbox and Blu have missing data picture doesn't look good even when the switch is plugged in.

    Overall good for the price

    Signal cuts out
    Not pleased with this switch. I randomly lose my connection. I've used the same devices & cables with a different switch without any issues.

    It lags
    The auto switching does not always work and manually switching inputs (on the box or with remote) has a noticeable lag of 1 -2 seconds.

    Its Cheap and it shows
    Well first off the Remote doesn't not work, plugged in the IR sensor, replaced the CR2025 Battery and nothing.
    Then turns out I just have a defective unit that completely drops the handshake randomly after being in use for a several minutes and I'm awaiting and RMA.
    Generally its a hub (Switch), it will try to Auto Switch to whichever source is on, that works fine. The HDMI Ports are rather close together so any wider HDMI Cables may have issues fitting, such as 3 Redmere Cables in a row, cannot fit due to their wide ends.
    I believe i also saw some noise in my picture, but I cannot say for sure as I packed it back up after the second Display Disconnect.

    Does what it's supposed to, and very well
    The IR extender cable makes this better. Much easier to use the remote switch.
