Searching for an auto switching HDMI tv source connection for multiple games console has been a cost saving find were it not for the helpful reviews which pointed me in the right direction. Thanks also to you Play.com for making it available.

  Works but ........

Connected my Sky HD box and an Incredisonic media player. No discernible reduction in picture or sound quality - but so far haven't got auto-switching to work so have to use the manual button. Still a lot easier than continually switching cables.

  very good

very fast delivery! item came in 2 days, works fine and was easy to set up. The only downside to the product is that it has bright lights to indicate it is on, these can be distracting. This light is easy to cover up so there's no real problem!

  Get Connected.

connected a PS3, a media player and a blu ray. All worked perfectly.
And when I turned one thing on whilst one was already on, it still changed the connection no problem. Can't go wrong. And at this price its well worth it.

  Very impressive

I needed more HDMI ports, so instead of buying a new TV I thought I'd give this a go, looking at the other reviews on another item that looked exactly the same but was more expensive, I went for this one. I was not disappointed. Turn the cable on and the light pops up on the right slot, turn the PS3 on, it switches to it, turn off PS3 and we're back to cable. There is a selector switch, but I haven't needed to use it as yet.

As for the picture quality, I really have not noticed any difference at all than if it was plugged directly into the TV. Highly recommend this solution for more HDMI connectors.

  Doesn't work with some HDMI equipment

Unfortunately the PS3 running to a Panasonic TH-P50Z70 TV via this cable/box won't pick up.
Same as a a Virginmedia Cable TV HD Box (UK)
A WD TV live box does work although seems to have problems detecting the correct resolution.
For reference I have 2 HDMI ports on the TV and 3 items to connect into it but using this item in multiple different combinations doesn't work unfortunately.
The light for detection turns up but no joy and the HMDI on the TV is fine and doesn't have an issue with either device.
As an educated guess it looks like it struggles with the signal unfortunately, and that the power is drawn for the box from the device(s) which is being plugged into it rather than the TV.
It may work on other devices but for me it's 2 failed and 1 half working out of 3 so I will be returning and trying to locate a better model.

  Much needed item, Great!!

This little box not only allowed us to add the extra HDMI device but also gave us the great feature of it auto-switching between the three, this has proven awesome and works really well, the only time I ever have to press the manual switch is if I want to have the 5.1 surround and forget to switch the cinema system on first.

For the price this is great!!
