    Blackbird 4k 4x2 HDMI Matrix with Slim Mountable Case and Remote Control

    Independently distribute any of up to four HDMI® video sources to two displays using this Blackbird 4K 4x2 HDMI Matrix Switch from Monoprice!

    This matrix switch allows you to direct any one of four video sources, such as game consoles of video disc players, to any of two displays. You can send the same source to both displays or direct a different source to each output. This gives you a level of flexibility that is unattainable with an ordinary HDMI switch or splitter, even in when used together.

    It supports HDMI video resolutions up to 4K@30Hz, including 3D video at 1080p. Featuring a bandwidth of 10.2Gbps, it supports all High Speed HDMI features, including up to 36-bit Deep Color and high-definition, multichannel audio, including 7.1-channel LPCM, DTS-HD Master Audio™, and Dolby TrueHD™. Additionally, it features an audio extraction module for Output A, which produces both an analog stereo and a digital optical S/PDIF Toslink® audio signal for use with an external amplifier or AV receiver.

    The matrix includes an infrared remote control and an IR extender, which allows you to control your equipment using its own remote control from a display area in another room.

    Features:

    • 10.2Gbps bandwidth, supports all High Speed HDMI features
    • Supports video resolutions up to 4K@30Hz (3840x2160p)
    • Supports 3D video at resolutions up to 1080p
    • Independently distribute any of four inputs to either of two outputs
    • Includes built-in audio extractor, producing analog stereo and digital optical S/PDIF Toslink audio signals
    • Includes IR remote control
    • Includes IR extender allowing use of remote controls from other rooms

    Does the S/PDIF Toslink output support Dolby Digital 5.1?

    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.
    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.
    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!
    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.
    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: I think you might be a bit confused about this device, this device is for taking four individual HDMI driven Video sources and outputting them individually to 2 different sources. You can play two separate sources at a time or one source on both outputs. the remote is an IR remote that allows you to switch between sources without manually pressing the button on the device itself.

    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.

    Trying to find a KVM for dual HDMI monitors? This is about as close as you can get without spending $1000.
    Every year or two I would look at the latest and greatest KVMs only to be disappointed. I just couldn't find anything that would support dual monitors, much less HDMI monitors until I happened across the Blackbird. Well it isn't a KVM but it did satisfy my desire to have a two PC dual monitor setup once coupled with a run of the mill KVM for the keyboard, mouse, and audio. Since it allows you to switch any of the 4 inputs to one or both of the outputs it is even more flexible than what I probably would have found in a KVM. Having the ability to switch each output source independently is quite nice for the occasions when I'm looking something up on my personal PC while still working on my office PC.

    I would highly recommend this to anyone with a dual monitor setup.

    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!

    Works Great!
    I purchased this to supply four different sources (cable box, dvd, computer, and Apple TV) into two monitors in the same room. This unit seems very well made, and works flawlessly. Definitely would purchase again and recommend.

    Very Functional - Toggle buttons could be more visible
    Device does exactly what you expect. Seems solid and works perfectly fine. The switches you use to toggle the inputs for a given output are pretty small and don't stick out visually at all. Color completely blends in. In low-light situations, would rather something that stuck out just a little more visibly, but otherwise this does what I wanted.

    Limited Output
    I was looking for an output from the matrix switch that would EXTEND displays from a laptop source and a desktop computer source. The best that the unit can do was DUPLICATE the displays. There was no misrepresentation, it just did not do what I needed.
    The remote control for switching was Dead on Arrival.

    PROS: Works as specified

    CONS: Remote was dead on arrival.
