    3x1 Enhanced HDMI® Switch with Built-In Equalizer & Remote Control

    Enjoy the easy switching life with the Monoprice 3x1 Enhanced HDMI® Switch!

    This switch allows you to connect three HDMI inputs and direct them to a single HDMI output. It fully conforms to the the HDCP and includes support for all 3D formats.

    Two of the inputs are in the traditional location on the back, while the third is on the front panel. This allows you to easily make temporary connections, such as from a phone or tablet, without having to reach behind and locate the plug by feel.

    The switch includes a remote control, with an on/off button, three direct access buttons, and a pair of directional buttons to cycle between available inputs. Whenever a device is turned off, the unit automatically switches to the next device in the chain, the same as if you had pressed the "next" button on the remote or pressed the "Touch switch" on the front panel.

    The switch also incorporates an amplifier, which automatically regenerates the HDMI signal to full strength, allowing you to use longer-than-normal HDMI cables from the input devices. An external 5VDC power supply is required and supplied with the unit.

    Note: Monoprice strongly recommends the use of minimum 24 AWG HDMI cables when connecting a device, such as this switch, between the source and destination devices to ensure minimal signal loss and maximum High Speed signal reliability.

    The switch won't stop on an input, it keeps switching?
    A shopper on Jan 5, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Assuming you have more than two devices available, try plugging in two at a time. It may be that one of them has a power-saving feature that is causing it to be repeatedly re-detected as the active device.
    Does this have auto switching, and if so can it be disabled?
    A shopper on Apr 27, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. This switch will detect when a device is turned off and automatically switch to the next device in the change. This feature can not be disabled.

    Can I use this with a streaming device (Roku)?
    A shopper on Jun 29, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Yes. It will accept up to three HDMI inputs (including a Roku). Only one active at a time, for a single HDMI display. It will auto-select the active input port. If more than one port is active, then (if I recall correctly) it will automatically select the lowest port number. This can be over-ridden by manually selecting the port (touch button on front) or from the remote.
    Does this device have a audio output for connecting a sound bar?
    New User U on Jun 25, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: If you find audio sound bar with hdmi connection output then yes other then that no rca is equipt and no optic output
    I wish to use 2 TV's on 1 cable box, will this work?
    Dallas G on Jun 19, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I bought 2 of the switching kits for TV's hooked to my Dish TV receivers (Hopper & Joey's). They work just fine with all programming. I have also streamed content from Amazon and used with Blu-ray dvd players with no noticeable problems.
    The reason I needed them is because despite having multiple HDMI inputs on the TV's, I have the TV's hooked up to the receivers via in-wall cabling (conduit), and have room to only pass a single HDMI cable to the TV. Perfect application for the switch.

    I need a swith box that has 2 inputs and 1 output will this work in rev.?
    David J O on Jan 25, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: This has 3 inputs and 1 output. You don't have to use all of the inputs. I am currently using it with 2 in and 1 out.
    Be aware that one of the inputs is on the front of the box. This would work well to hook up a computer that has HDMI output.
    Cant get this switch to work with monoprice HDMI over ethernet adapter (8121). Any ideas?
    A shopper on Jan 23, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: You would have to add an external power adapter.
    Plugged in the unit and see a red flashing power led. Any idea what that means?
    Gail S on Nov 30, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Hello, have you checked to see if it'll go away eventually? Otherwise, that is usually an indicator that data is passing through. Otherwise, I would try another power outlet. I hope this helps and thank you for your question!

    A great HDMI switch box
    This HDMI switch is fantastic. I also used it with the least expensive HDMI cables and it worked flawlessly. My Logitech Harmony remote controls it just fine as well. I use it because I only have one extra port on my Sony receiver and I need to plug in an Apple TV2, a Western Digital TV and on occasion, a MacBook Pro. I specifically picked this model because the output and two inputs and power are on the back, and there is a single input on the front. I use the single input on the front rarely for my Macbook. The remote works perfectly as does the "touch" button on the front for selecting the source. I am very impressed with this switch!

    PROS: Two inputs, the output and the power cable all come out the back. The box is very small, about the size of my Apple TV2 box (just a little bigger) Price, service and shipping from Monoprice is great as usual. Remote is small and works fine, also Logitech Harmony compatiable!

    CONS: The Blue LED's on the front are WAY to bright. I put a piece of black duct tape over them, and that dimmed them down about 90%, but you can still see them! The brightness level is just fine with the tape over them. Without it, they are like a Blue LED flashlight!!!!!

    PROS: Easy to use.

    CONS: You should inform buyers that a AWG 24 HDMI cable is required!

    Very very happy with my buying experience over the years with monoprice.com
    And would recommend anyone

    The switch works flawlessly. there is a remote to switch from one input to another, but what's even better is the priority input feature it has. If only one of the devices plugged into the switch is on, then the switch will automatically set to that input. If more than one input device is on, priority is given to the lowest numbered input (of 1, 2, and 3). The way I use my set-up, I don't even have to worry about switching to the correct input everything is done for me.

    Not perfect but gets the job done
    This all metal box works well for my needs. The two major improvements I would make are to move all of the inputs and outputs onto the back of the box, and to put a strong tint on the LEDs to prevent them from being so bright. It's kind of ridiculous how bright they are. I had to put gaffer's tape over the face just to prevent myself from going blind.

    Otherwise, this product works very well and I have no other complaints.

    PROS: Box comes with necessary equipment (AC adapter, remote, etc).

    Switch works really well

    Solid build quality

    CONS: Auto switching doesn't seem to work

    LEDs on the face are extremely bright

    HDMI input 1 is awkwardly on the face

    Returned for Refund
    If switching content-protected HDMI do not buy but otherwise it would be a good purchase. Monoprice credited the return in a reasonable amount of time so feel confident that your purchases are safe.

    PROS: Nice metal design, felt substantial

    CONS: Does not work with HBO and DirectTV which requires that it pass a HDCP signal

    3x1 HDMI switch
    Does exactly what it is supposed to do and even comes with a remote.

    PROS: Works like a champ, good clear picture. Great price!

    CONS: Unit is a little small and I wish all of the ports were on the back (one of the outputs is on the front).

    Gotta wear shades
    I'm really happy with this switcher. It works great on my projector which is 30+ feet of cable away from the switcher. The automatic switching is really really nice however although my computer & PS3 seem to activate it my cable box does not for some reason. The front connection could be a plus or a minus depending on your needs but as far as keeping the cabling under control goes I'd say it's a minus. The main thing I don't like is the brightness of the LED's. If you're using a projector and trying to maintain a light controlled environment you'll have to cover the LED's with tape.

    PROS: Automatic switching

    CONS: LED's are way way way too bright
    Front connection
    November 13, 2011

    PROS: Works out of the box just the way they said it would. What more can you say about it. No more going on the floor to change wires.

    CONS: The on light is a little too bright but not a problem

    Works Great
    This works exactly as advertised. I have 1 HDMI input on TV and now I can switch between TIVO and Apple TV. I control it all through my Harmony remote. The LED's are bright but there are solutions to that. If you don't need to see the LED's...black electrical tape is the perfect size and becomes invisible on the box. Just be sure to not cover the IR receiver on the left of LED's. If you want to see the LED's but want them dimmed...this site sells a solution. http://www.lightdims.com/store.htm

    HIGHLY recommend....great price, quick delivery.

    PROS: Works great

    CONS: LED's very bright
