    4-Port Component Video Switch with IR Learning

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


    • 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.

    Could this be used just as an audio switch? Will it pass through audio without a video signal on both analog and digital inputs and outputs? Also could this be used as a composite video switch by having only composite cables connected to the Green Luminance Y inputs and outputs?
    William B on Jun 12, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Yes, and yes. My TV has combination inputs that either work as component, or if the fourth port is used as composite. I have both used and it switches without issue. Therefore, should work just as well for music only.
    What are the dimensions?

    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!
    Can I use this for RGB-S by using the digital input/output as sync?

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    This thing saved me from having to buy a new TV
    All 4 of the HDMI ports on my TV died, and it only has one component video port. I needed to be able to connect an HD DVR, a PS3, and a PS4. This switch was exactly what I needed. It will output the signal at 1080p. Some people may notice that the black color seems to be slightly washed out, but I'm honestly not sure if it was that way before. Of course I can't watch blu rays now through component video, but at least I can watch DVDs and play games.

    The only thing I can think of negatively would really just be nitpicking. There is a slight delay when switching inputs and sometimes I have to push the remote button a few times to get it to switch, but that could also be the fact that I don't have the clearest line of sight to the box sometimes.

    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.

    4 port component video switch box

    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.
