The unit is doing what I wanted it to do so far. I was hoping the auto switching be a little bit more intuitive. It doesn't seems to auto switch from a Roku to Direct TV or my blue-ray player. I have to manually switch it. May be this is due the fact that the Roku does not really have an off button, so the unit think that I'm still using the Roku and it won't switch automatically.
So far so good. Hooked up Tivo, Roku and DVD player. As Roku is always on, it is always primary. Thus, this splitter/switch with remote control is key to switching from rhe primary Roku to Tivo for watching allnstreaming as well as over the air tv.
This 3 Port HDMI switch receives signals from up to 3 HDMI sources, and outputs to an HDTV/monitor. It will automatically switch to the source that is turned on the latest; you can also easily choose your HD source with a remote control. You can connect up to 3 of your HD sources to this HDMI video switch at the same time, such as your Blu-Ray/HD-DVD Player, PS3, Xbox360, HD desktop computer (HDPC), HD Video Cameras, or HDTV boxes. The switch then connects to your HDTV/monitor, occupying only 1 HDMI connector. Best for HDTVs/monitors with only 1 or 2 HDMI connectors left, yet still many HD sources to be plugged in. You can select your desired HD source with a simple remote control. And it doesn't even need those messy power cables. Note: Comes with built in Amplifier for optional power cable (not included) for signal loss when using longer HDMI cables.
