I had to ship back; when navigating my Benq W1070 projector's menu the 4 port switch would change it's input. I discovered the two devices were using the same IR codes for up and down. Also I had problems getting the audio to work with my PS3. It would work then once everything was powered off, it wouldn't work on power on. Didn't spend too much time on the audio issue since it wouldn't work in my configuration.

HASH(0xb351f9a8) out of 5 stars Does exactly what I need it to do. Aug. 6 2013
By Dustin Feltz - Published on
Verified Purchase
My Xbox 360 Elite I purchased back in '08 finally kicked the bucket, so I went out and picked up the new model based on the Xbox One design scheme (Xbox 360 E). Turns out they removed the TOSLINK and now expect everyone to have TV's that allow 5.1 pass-through to the TV's on board optical out... which a majority do not. As a result, all my sound was converted down to two channel, making my surround sound headset worthless. As they have yet to make an adapter to address the issue, this HDMI switch was my only option outside of buying an actual audio receiver to solve the problem. Essentially route the Xbox HDMI output to this switch first, use the switch's TOSLINK for audio devices, then route another HDMI cable from the switch to the TV. Viola, 5.1 channel sound has been restored.

I will note that the LED's are excessively bright as others have mentioned, but they can always be taped off if they're overly annoying.

HASH(0xb351fbd0) out of 5 stars Adds Audio—Coaxial or optical— Ouptut, Great Value Aug. 21 2014
By M - Published on
Verified Purchase
Pros: outputs audio in Coaxial or optical (SPDIF) in addition to traditional HDMI, works as advertised, inexpensive for feature set, remote, Metal enclosure: sturdy build
Cons: resets to HDMI1 (in front) if power lost, no HDMI-CEC support for auto-power on/off, wall wart power supply

I got this for the audio outputs for an older stereo, and couldn't be happier with it. My stereo only has coaxial in, and the Apple TV only has optical out, so I needed a switch. I had another HDMI switch going to an HDTV, but I couldn't listen to my music from iTunes through my AppleTV via Airplay unless the TV was on, & I switched the input. So, I got this so I could save power and not have to have my TV on to use my Apple TV.
I hooked the power up to my stereo to save energy for when the stereo wasn't on. The only downside is that whenever I power down my stereo, the switch resets to HDMI port 1, which is on the front, and never used. I could easily fix then, but then I would have to power it down separately which I forget to do. This is a very minor issue that is just because my use case. Note: if I turned it off via the remote or on the box without depowering it, it will remember the port upon power up. Too bad it doesn't supported HDMI-CEC so it would power down along with my other equipment. The standard wall wart is also a bit of a pain, but I just attached a 1 foot extension cord so it won't block an outlet.

I plan to replace my receiver soon with a modern HDMI in/out system, but this will then migrate to my other TV/Receiver setup.

HASH(0xb351fe34) out of 5 stars Cable Matters 4 port HDMI switch Sept. 5 2014
By peters - Published on

I purchased the Cable Matters 4 port HDMI switch because my A/V preamp has no HDMI switching, but I can't bear to part with my Lexicon separates. This box allows me to switch among my HDMI sources (DirecTv Genie receiver, Apple TV, Sony Blu-Ray player) , output the video to a projector and filter the sound from the switch to the preamp with an optical cable. I programmed my Logitech Harmony remote to change the HDMI input setting of the switch depending on which source is being watched. The only problem I had was that the Logitech Harmony website does not recognize this brand of device (and it doesn't even have a model number). I looked around on the Amazon website and found the identical looking switch (branded a MonoPrice model 105557) which was supported by Logitech's website and worked perfectly for programming the switch into the remote. Note that the switch comes with its own remote also. My projector only supports 720p so I can't vouch for the switch's support of higher resolutions or 3D but I have no doubts that it will do so. Video output is as crisp and clear as plugging in the source directly to the projector. Switching has been flawless. As noted by one other reviewer, the lights on the front are too bright and I will end up covering them up with electrical tape. This switch has been a lifesaver as my girlfriend was getting really frustrated having to plug and unplug HDMI cables constantly, and it saved me having to replace the aging but sonically amazing Lexicon.

HASH(0xa5dd9180) out of 5 stars Good switcher... May 1 2015
By Bruce P. Reinhard - Published on
Verified Purchase
A good well made feature rich switcher. Simple to hook up, install and program my theater uni-remote. This model does not have 'auto-sense' which is an issue for me as when switching other devices the OLD switcher would intermittently switch away from what I was watching. This one not having that feature stays where I switch it to. Very good, I'm VERY happy!!! But as others mention, the LEDs are SOOOOOO bright. I used thin stick on black felt feet to mute them, works well!!!

HASH(0xa5dd93b4) out of 5 stars Perfect cheap solution for multiple gaming systems Feb. 1 2015
By N. Maselli - Published on
Verified Purchase
This little box is the perfect companion to my little gaming nook.

I have multiple game consoles and a PC all connected to my monitor, and managing inputs and audio without wanting to buy an actual AV-Receiver is very annoying. With this box being the driver of my gaming corner, I have all consoles/PC running through the box, with my gaming headphones getting fed surround sound through the optical port and my speakers being driven by the 3.5mm port.

Whatever console input I'm on, I get sound through whichever system (speakers or headset) that I feel like using at the moment.

Picture quality and sound quality appear unaffected.

Switching inputs with the given remote is easy, but I have it close enough that I can just do it by hand.

Overall an amazing purchase.
