Questions and Answers
PROS: The matrix switcher worked fine and passed HDCP 2.2 video signal without a problem
CONS: No RS232 documentation provided with the unit, No technical support for RS232. And, the RS232 commands supplied by the tech did not work which is probably why they don't support it.
I could not get the RS232 control to work with the code provided by Monoprice technical support. Another reviewer had the same issue. Monoprice technical support claims no ownership of supporting the RS232 information that they provide.
The IP control is based on a PC application and not true IP control.
If you want basic 4K HDMI switching, this is a good (not great) unit. For any automation or advanced switching, a higher-end unit will be better suited as the time, effort, and cost to make the Blackbird unit work with automation will outweigh the low cost.

One issue I have is the lcd display is partially not working. Not sure if that's an issue with this switch or all of them.
