    Will the auto-switch functionality work to switch between a Tivo Premiere and a Panasonic Blu-ray player with surround sound? Both devices are "always on" even when not playing a Blu-ray disc as all sound is routed to the surround sound speakers connected to said blu-ray player. Thank you.

    Can you use this to connect between multiple TV's with just a single source? Instead of one two and two sources.
    A shopper on Mar 13, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I think you're looking for an HDMI splitter not a switch.Enter an answer to this question.
    Will this Switch work with Apple TV 4 and Amazon Fire TV?
    A shopper on Dec 5, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Hello, this item should work with those devices accordingly. Make sure you are using active cables for best compatibility. Thank you for your inquiry!
    Does this switch support 3D video?
    Eric M on Dec 14, 2017
    Does this pass through the HDMI control signal that will turn devices off when you turn the TV off? Specifically does it pass it through to both devices at the same time?
    Eric M on Oct 7, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: No, it does not have any or IR relay options. It will switch automatically to the device that powers on to that input though.
    Can this work in reverse? IE Have one input and pick which of the two outputs is active at a given time? (I have one monitor on my desk, and one across the room at a walkstation. I only want one active at a time.)
    A shopper on Oct 7, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: I have this device and I was curious about your question so I just tried it. I hooked it up to a Blu-Ray as the input but I could not get the signal to travel to either display one being a TV the other a computer monitor. I don't know if there is something different between a Blu-Ray and computer as far as being a source but in my test it did not work.

    Got this to switch between PS3 and PS4 and it works great.

    PROS: Works!
    July 30, 2015
    Works perfectly right out of the box!
    The pigtail is connecting a BD player & an Amazon Firestick to a cheap 19" TV with only 1 HDMI input. It automatically switches to whichever device is operating. I've never had to manually touch the pigtail switch once connected. Outstanding value!

    PROS: Just plug it in & forget about it.
    Works perfectly!
    Great price.

    Two Laptops and one HD Monitor
    Device works much better than expected. If you have one computer on and then switch to another, the switch senses the change and automatically picks up the new computer. No need to select a monitor. I do not see any deteroiation in video or audio schedule

    PROS: Great. See review

    CONS: None

    I have more devices than I have ports, but with this splitter that is no longer an issue and I am on cloud nine.

    No requirement for power supply.

    Quick & accurate
    I happened upon Monoprice while searching for a switch to allow two devices to serve one HDTV. The price was good and reviews indicated quality, so I ordered from Monoprice. My order was processed with no delay and received within the stated ship time.
    I am entirely satisfied with the product and service. Recommend highly.

    PROS: Works just as advertised. Switches transparently between active devices.

    CONS: None found.

    It works just like they said it should the description that I read.
    This is the second HDMI pigtail that I purchased. I am very happy with it so intelligent function. It switches automatically when it senses the power on of a device. I would recommend this product to a friend.
