    Does the S/PDIF Toslink output support Dolby Digital 5.1?
    A shopper on Apr 2, 2017
    Does this support HDR?
    New User U on Mar 18, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: I'm having troubles with a GeForce GTX970 which seems to produce an HDCP 2.0. signal... It does seem to work with my PS4 Pro however... :/
    Are extra remotes available for purchase? This unit has two outputs and one remote. Not enough remotes unless both TVs are in one room.
    A shopper on Mar 6, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your inquiry. Unfortunately, we would not sell the remote control separate from the unit. I do apologize for any inconvenience.
    Will this send the monitor EDID information all the devices connected or only to the one that is selected to display on that monitor. I am looking for a device that will keep my WIn10 machines desktops the same (not disabling the desktop) when I select a different computer to display? Just like a KVM without the keyboard or mouse.
    Wesley B on Mar 21, 2018
    What kind of connection can you hook up to the optical output? Can you use a Toslink cable or is the RCA adapter the only option? The manual isn't terribly clear.
    Justin B on May 2, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: The supplied cable is 3.5 mm jack to plug into the box. Other end is R/L stereo RCA and one RCA for digital coax. I use the latter. Could not check to see if socket also does optical - if so would be need one of the mini optical adapters like MacBooks use with their combo headphone/optical sockets. Cat used mine adapter as a toy -- long lost.

    Can this out two different inputs to two outputs the same time?
    Yusuf A on Dec 29, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: There are two different outputs and each can have a different input displaying at the same time. Each time an input is changed, there is a 2 second “blackout” on each output.
    Is there a way to program a universal remote or purchase another to control the unit from another room? Thanks!
    Frank L on Nov 23, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Hello, thank you for your inquiry. As long as your universal remote is capable of IR learning, then it should work according to this matrix. I hope that helps, thank you!
    What are the RS232 codes for this? Does the box include a straight-through cable or a null modem cable and which does the unit need?
    Peter v on Jan 11, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Not sure on the RS232, but there is no cable in the box. Only an RCA breakout for audio, a power adapter and an IR extender.
    Would this work going from a receiver to the switch and then outputting it to a TV and a Projector? Do both monitor have to be turned on?
    A shopper on Dec 14, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: If you are trying to view the image on both devices simultaneously, yes. Otherwise no, you only need to power on the device or devices you want to watch at any given time.
    I am looking for a "safe" device that I can send the HDMI output from a DVR box to two different HDMI TVs providing the same source on both. This appears to provide but I am wondering about the output levels of the HDMI signals. Many other similar products have issues with running "too hot" and ruining the HDMI inputs on some TVs. How safe/reliable is this one? Any issues with it destroying HDMI devices?
    A shopper on Mar 20, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. There have been no reports of that issue. This unit would work just fine for your desired set up.
    Can this support 2 independent PCs, each with 2 HDMi outputs to the switch mapped to 2 of the HDMI outputs from the switch to 2 Monitors? And can it support extending of the PC displays between the two monitors?

    Works fine if you don't need to pass-through multichannel audio
    At the HDMI outputs this unit does not pass through anything other than the L/R channels, either that or it downmixes multichannel to 2 channel. I wanted to switch devices between 2 different receivers with 5.1 setups but no matter what I tried the receivers only see 2 channels at the input. So when it says it "supports" 7.1 LPCM, DTSHD & DolbyTrueHD, sure it will accept it at the input but does not pass it through to the output. If they removed that line from the description then I would not have a problem with this device, I just wouldn't have ordered it. Ended up getting a different 4x2 switch elsewhere that will pass through whatever multichannel format I throw at it.

    If you use this for video & only 2 channel audio then it works fine, so I'll give it three stars.

    HDMI Switch to RCA Output
    I can now run different devices with HDMI output into my older Non HDMI Yamaha Surround Sound Receiver through the RCA Outputs. Works great!

    Great product for the money
    Works as advertised. It eliminated the need for an additional splitter and allowed us to send a different video to each of our 2 monitors. I liked the remote control sensor because I enclosed the unit and all of the wiring in a box.

    Works great and mounts out-of-the-way
    I used the Blackbird to replace a conventional switch in our motorhome where space is limited. This one mounts on the cabinet wall freeing up space for other components. I did need to order some 90 degree HDMI adapters to get the cabling where I wanted it. Overall, a great product!

    Works great - as advertised and expected
    Works great - as advertised and expected. Audio out is much better than my previous switch â?? puts out good digital multichannel via supplied cable (via coax). Switching much faster and more reliable too. Was frequently resetting old box when projector or TV would not take signal â?? issue disappeared with this box â?? have not had to reset yet. Like the design, can burry in back of cab and run with harmony remote.

    Does what I purchased it for
    I have two computers, 4monitors, a treadmill desk, and a sit-down desk. I use 2monitors at each desk.

    This allows me to connect my primary monitor on either desk to either computer using a DVI to HMDI cable (Product # 2404) on one computer and a HMDI port on another without having to purchase the much more expensive KVM switch for DVI connectors or convert my HMDI port on my second computer to DVI.

    The drawbacks; sometimes when switching between setups, the windows I had opened on the 2nd monitor (using VGA switch) move to the primary monitor and I end up taking a few seconds to drag them back to the second monitor.

    I purchased this because it could and does handle the 1920 x 1200 resolution I use on my primary monitor.

    No more swamping out connectors or messing with the switch on the monitor to change the cable the monitor is to use. It also cuts down on the cables as I no longer have to have several cables running to the monitor.
