    Does this support HDR? What I'm looking to do is run inputs into this device, one output for video to TV that supports HDR, and the other output to the receiver to get uncompressed audio from the same input source. Does that sound possible with this device?
    New User U on Aug 11, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: This unit will not support HDR

    Can anyone confirm whether this matrix supports HDMI 2.0? I see support for HDCP 2.2 which probably means it also supports HDMI 2.0 but the bandwidth specs: 2.97Gbps/channel (8.91Gbps total) seem odd.
    Steve V on Dec 16, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Hello, thank you for your question. This unit supports up to 10.2Gbps bandwidth, 4k@30Hz. The HDCP 2.2 support specifically allows it to play protected 4k content. I hope this helps, and of course if you have any more questions feel free to contact us at tech@monoprice.com.
    I see this unit has a toslink audio out. Which of the input sources would be output from this port? I am hoping to output digital audio from several HDMI sources to my stereo receiver's toslink input from the switcher's toslink audio out. Input sources include blu-ray, cable box and smart TV. The TV has ARC HDMI input, so also hope to connect to TV once via the ARC HDMI and also send this source via toslink to my stereo receiver. Is this all possible?
    New User U on Aug 13, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: You are describing this units intended purpose. Toslink will output all input sources. Toslink will output what ever is being output on HDMI output A.

    The unit will support ARC audio when the ARC option is selected.
    If I plugged an HDCP enabled device, such as a Playstation 3, would it bypass/strip the HDCP for the 'Out' signal? I'm looking for a 6x2 device that can bypass HDCP and support 4K for video recording, streaming, and editing purposes. I'm looking to make this purchase by the weekend.
    New User U on Jul 16, 2017
    Is there a trick to making the 4k work? I have two 4k tvs that work if my fire is plugged directly in but not with this inline.
    Mitchell H on Jul 26, 2017

    Thank you
    I have bought 2 6x2 HDMI Matrix products from different manufacturers for my game room. I have 6 different game systems hooped up to 2 different TV outputs. Both units I have tried so far, the audio on one TV would cut out constantly if both tv's were displaying different inputs. They worked ok if the same input was running to both TV's. Does this product suffer from the same issue? Or can I run different inputs on both outputs with no audio loss?
    A shopper on Apr 3, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. It sounds like there may have been issues with the units you had used. This unit would have no issues being able to have 2 inputs being used for either or both TVs.
    Can I control this with my logitech harmony remote control or the logitech harmony hub?
    New User U on Feb 24, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I just added mine under HDTV Supply 4K 6x2 HDMI Matrix Switcher, when you add it put "Blackbird" as the brand and "4K 6x2 HDMI Matrix Switcher" as the model number and click add. It will show you a list and you can select the one that reads "HDTV Supply 4K 6x2 HDMI Matrix Switcher", it has all the buttons mapped.
    The manual suggests only HDMI input 1 is HDCP 2.2 compliant (p.4 under 'Attention') . Is this correct or are all 6 input ports HDCP 2.2? Also would I be able to use one HDMI port for picture and HDMI output 2 for sound? (i.e. for Amazon Fire box and a projector)
    A shopper on Mar 12, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Only Input 1 is HDCP 2.2 compliant.
    Will this work if I connect the output to a HDbaseT extender?
    Andrew N on Feb 13, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Yes.the question is do you need 6 hdmi inputs?
    Two questions:

    Can this be powered on/ off with the remote? I see in the photos the unit has a power toggle but the remote appears to have a power button as well, maybe it goes into standby?

    My current matrix (cheap one) has a lot of flicker when changing channels with my cable box and takes a long time to see the channel when changed, how does this one do?
    Thomas S on Dec 1, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: The power button on the remote puts the unit into standby mode. The power toggle switch on the unit turns it off. I only have had one problem with this switch. When I power on the TV and DirecTV DVR, I often don't have sound. The work around is to power off the switch and turn it back on. This only happens on my Samsung 9500 series TV. I have the same switch on my LG OLED and I don't have this problem. it makes me think this is a problem with the Samsung. There are no problem with switching between devices or switching channels.

    Will this work with a Harmony Hub Remote?
    Andrew N on Mar 2, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Yes. I have owned multiple versions of harmony and multiple HDMI switches. If you have an IR remote your Harmony remote can learn from it, even if it is not on the list of available devices in harmony
    Is it capable of overlaying (superimposing) on source on top of the other?
    - JC
    A shopper on Feb 6, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: The device has 2 outputs so you can run a Hdmi cable to a TV and a receiver to get sound from one source and video from another. . If you had a second TV you could display a completely different source on 2 TVs. But the pip that comes with the. Device is too small to use but it superimposes 5 sources on to 1 screen. Hope this answers your question.
    Is (if so how) the MHL input different than the other hdmi inputs?
    A shopper on Dec 23, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: From the web - I can't verify this specifically for this switch, but here is what should be different - the primary feature is that it is for connection mobile/ audio to the matrix so that you can send video/audio to your TV or similar device, while powering the phone/tablet.

    • The TV provides power to the connected device (5 V DC/500 mA with MHL 1.0, 5 V DC/900 mA with MHL 2.0)

    • Uses a single, thin cable to connect the mobile device to the TV.

    • The TV remote has the ability to control the connected device through HDMI-CEC (Anynet+). Although, with mixed manufacturer this function is not guaranteed.

    • Streaming 1080p uncompressed HD video.

    • 8 channel uncompressed audio (e.g., 7.1 surround sound).

    • Supports High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP).
    I’m looking for a solution to mirror multiple HDMI inputs (at least one HDCP 2.2) to two different resolution outputs (4K on one TV, 720p on another). Will this do it? If yes, how about with HDCP 2.2 compliant video (i.e. UHD FireTV output to both TVs, even though the second is an older 720p)?
    New User U on Jul 30, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: No. The resolution you are sending from your source is what you get out.
    I bought this switcher and lost the remote. Do you sell a replacement remote for this switcher?
    A shopper on Jun 1, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. Unfortunately we would not carry the remote controller for this unit separate from the unit. I do apologize for any inconvenience.
    Can it cascade to another unit?
    A shopper on Mar 31, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Yes, but the unit must have the same specs.
    How will it work using toslink and stereo ports simultaneously? also will it switch automatically from 2.0-5.1-7.1ch using toslink?
    A shopper on Feb 19, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: It does not work that way. When the original program is code in 2.0 or 5.1, this box does not translate it into 7.1. Your receiver processes it into 7.1 format but the signal for the two or five additional speakers to make 7.1 will not contain the signal. Toslink contains 5.1 signal format and 2.0 contains only left and right channels only.
    Does this support CEC pass-through?

    Blackbird 4k 6x2 HDMI Matrix with Audio, HDCP 2.2
    While it supports 4K viewing (HDCP 2.2), it does not support HDR/Deep Color so I had to return it for refund.

    Looks like a well made product

    Great feature on affordable price.
    I was looking for hdmi switcher to replace my dvdo duo that die on me (haven't use the cms since I calibrated TV by myself but I missed the color generator).
    I need a switcher that can split audio signal to feed my PRE/AVR and this unit works great.
    You need to connect the output 1 (arc) to TV (arc) and then the audio signal will go tru output 2.
    Haven't test with 4K source or HDR yet but so far it works what I need for now.

    At this price it beat others hdmi switcher by far.
    Hope it can do HDR (well maybe not cause it need hdmi 2.0a at least)

    PROS: Price

    CONS: Should have coax audio output.
    6 hdmi inputs not much .. not less .. but the more the merrier. (I was looking for 8x2 but they don't have it)
    November 3, 2016
    This unit can do 4K@60 at 4:2:0
    I just update a new GPU that support 4K. So, I just have a chance to test it with 4K.
    When changing resolution to 4K. It always goes to 4K@30 but you can change it to 4K@60 (4:2:0).

    I might look for another unit that support 4k@60 on 4:4:4 but right now I will live with it cause the one that support full 4k still expensive.

    Blackbird 4k 6x2 HDMI Matrix with Audio, HDCP 2.2
    Received the item and right out of the box the audio output did not function. Phoned Technical Support and they are going to replace the unit.
    As for the units switching ability, it performs as per the description listed by Monoprice.
    Would recommend this product to a friend.
