    4-Port Component Video Switch with IR Learning

    Expand the Component video, digital, and analog audio inputs of your TV set!

    Features:

    • Supports Component Video, Digital 5.1 (Coaxial, S/PDIF)*, and Analog stereo audio signals (RCA).
    • IR learning.
    • Remote control included.
    • Push button selection: User may also use the push button on front of unit to select the signal source.
    • High Isolation: In order to transmit high quality component video, we have specially designed circuitry for isolating the adjacent component video input so you can achieve a great picture and crisp audio for that pure home theatre entertainment experience.
    • Self-termination: For those inputs that are not in-use, our specially designed circuitry allows those unused ports to self-terminate with a 75-ohm load. This is great for signal protection from outside interference.

    (*) In order to have the best performance, please check that input and output component video format is the same. (YPbPr or YCbCr)

    (**) Component video cable connectors are normally color-coded. Example: Red, Green and Blue are the primary colors needed to display your video accurately. Please make sure you check your connections and they are correct before beginning playback.

    Package Contents:

    • 4-Port Component Video Switch

    Not Working As Hoped
    Had multiple devices that use the RCA cables to connect to the TV. Thought that the switch would be able to handle them. The switch shows the video slightly distorted. Sound also seems to be coming from the video jack.

    PROS: Like that you can connect multiple devices.

    CONS: Does not work with the RCA cables.

    Great value and quality, and improved over previous revisions...
    This is the perfect solution for TVs with limited inputs, but multiple devices. The recent model I bought (Aug 2011) seems to be improved over earlier models (Jan 2011) of the same product, in that front panel LEDs are brighter and have a wider angle of dispersion (previous models had very directional LEDs resulting in some appearing much dimmer than adjacent ones), and better IR receive range (previous ones stopped receiving once you were 8' away the current revision works even at about 16' away). The only thing I wish this had is support for a single IR command to select the "next" input, much like the front panel button does. This way, I could use a single "Video Source" or "Input" button on any programmable/learning remote, rather than having to assign up to 4 commands (1 for each input) to 4 buttons. I've analyzed the IR waveforms to try and extrapolate commands that may have been assigned to the "select next" functionality, but such a code/command does not seem to exist.

    PROS: Does the job perfectly, controllable via IR/remote, IR learning feature, fast/clean no-relay switching, great price, easy to use. You can be confident that you're getting the quality/value that comes with all MonoPrice products. Latest revision has good IR receive range and well-illuminated LED indicators.

    CONS: Does not have a single IR command to sequentially select the next input (AFAIK) given that there is a single push button on the front panel, I would've thought an IR equivalent would exist. Instead, there are 4 discrete IR commands to select each of the inputs. Also, the remote it comes for is quite large (for only 4 buttons), but the codes can be learned/extracted and programmed into another remote.

    Priced like it came out the back of a van.
    How does anyone make money selling stuff on this site? Seriously. If I tried to buy this switcher at Radio Shack or Best Buy or wherever else...well, they wouldn't have it, 'cause they're all good for nuthin' punks, but if they did sell it, I'd be paying $60 or more. I also bought a headphone splitter with dual volume controls for less than $3. Try that at an Apple Store.


    PROS: Works. Cheap.

    CONS: Does not make ice cream.

    Works great, but DOES NOT HAVE IR LEARNING.
    The switches work fine. The remotes work fine. The "IR learning" feature is NOT available and Monoprice does not seem interested in correcting this totally inaccurate listing.

    PROS: Routes RGB and Component video without any noticeable loss or interference.
    Works well for me at 720x480@29.97hz from Wii, PS2, & DVD player (and 1024x768@60hz and 1920x1080@60hz and 1600x1200@120hz from PC using VGA to Component "shred" cable).
    Remote works well and REMOTES that have IR learning can of course control it.

    CONS: DOES NOT HAVE IR LEARNING. The switcher cannot learn other IR codes. The remote cannot learn other IR codes.

    Let's get this straight: "IR learning" means that a given device can record and replay OTHER IR codes instead of those built in by default. Satellite, Cable and other "Universal" remotes typically have IR learning, whereby you can take a traditional remote, aim it at a receiver on the device, & the device can replay the codes used by your old remote.

    This unit does NOT have this feature. The "IR learning" tag should be removed from three name.
    Yes, if you already have a remote with IR learning, it can replace the remote that comes with this unit.
    NO the remote for this unit and NO the switcher itself DO NOT have IR learning capability. I have confirmed this with the manufacturer. The "IR learning" label is a packaging/marketing error.

    I notified Monoprice of this error over a year ago and they still haven't corrected the listing for this item. You cannot train this unit or the remote provided to accept any offer IR codes.

    (This is VERY unfortunate for me, as I have two of these units in one rack. If they had IR learning as advertised I could reprogram one of them to work using different codes. As IR learning is not available, I cannot use the two switches independently.)

    Using For Home Theater Setup
    I'm using this to switch inputs for my subwoofer(s) as well as the Digital (Coaxial, S/PDIF) *5.1 for the digital input/output going to my Bose 1SR Soundbar. So I have an HDTV with Comcast HD DVR, Blu Ray Player and BoxieBox DLink medial player and switching all the digital coaxial going to the soundbar input using this. Also using the RCA L/R audio switching to switch the subwoofer to each device. Works perfect using the Bose wireless subwoofer as well as my wired Velodyne subwoofer in one side of the room and using the Monoprice 5.8Ghz Wireless Audio/Video Transmitter to send to my other Velodyne sub across the room in the other corner. So I yes, I have 3 subs in one room!

    This switching unit works perfectly to switch all my subs and digital audio all at once.

    Works great!

    PROS: Lots of connections. Works perfectly. Nice appearance. No signal degradation whatsoever.

    Even has Digital (Coaxial, S/PDIF) *5.1 and (RCA) Analog Stereo audio signals.

    Easy connections. Haven't used the learning IR feature yet but plan on it with my Logitec Harmony 1000 remote.

    CONS: None-works perfectly!

    Beware
    This switch cannot be wired backwards. You can only output to one device. Dont buy if youre trying to reverse it and use 1 input to multiple outputs.

    Excellent value
    I'm using this for composite video switching at the moment. Be sure to use the "Y" channel if you use it that way, because the "Y" carries the sync for component video. Works great.

    HD old technology
    good price, works flawlessly , I use it for multi-monitors in same room alot of sources have both HDMI and Component outputs so you can have it on any monitor in HD . Your TV must have Component input usually only one and with this device you can have 4 inputs with remote switchable .

    PROS: good remote responsive faster than HDMI switch protocol exchange.

    great picture quality

    CONS: none so far

    4 port component video switch box
    5/5

    PROS: I am very happy with this product as I have pruchased several of them with no problems. I use them to increase the number of inputs for older console stereos, which I refurbish. These units are simple and install anywhere.



    CONS: It is obvious that the instruction manual is written by someone who does not speak English and would be helpful to see it rewritten by someone who does.

    Does the job at half the price!
    I'm using this product with my PS3 and my HD cable box to display in 1080i. My TV has only one 1080i output, so a switch became necessary. I was given many suggestions, and after reading a lot of reviews, I didn't see what made other more expensive switches a convincing better choice. I know Monoprice's returns policy is very easy, as well, so I decided to go with this $20 product instead. I'm so glad I did! The switch worked perfectly, and since it's 4 ports I still have room to expand my home theater with surround sound and whatnot. A very good investment! Two things to note, though if the display isn't immediately what you expect, make sure all of the cables are TIGHTLY connected to the switch and TV inputs. Additionally, double check to make sure each individual piece of equipment is set to the proper display as well. My cable box was only set to display in 480i, so when I had the cables in the 1080i output, it still didn't look right. I had to go to the cable box menu and adjust the display settings from there. Don't overlook these simple steps!! At first I was ready to return the product as defective/not capable of displaying in 1080i when incorrect settings were the actual culprit.

    Can it take 2 Component Inputs with R and L Audio and output to Component in of a TV?
    A shopper on Dec 21, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Hello, thank you for your question. This unit is component video selector switch which allows to plug in up to 4 component video sources to a single display using component as well and allow you switch/select a single video source to be displayed at a time. I hope this helps, and of course if you have any more questions feel free to contact us!
