I have an older LCD 1080p tv with only 2 HDMI inputs. I bought the Rocketfish to accommodate my Uverse cable box, Xbox 360, PS3, and Apple TV. The device automatically switches to the device you turn on and works well except for my Apple TV 2 box, which requires me to manually switch to its input on the selector either on the device itself or with the mini remote included with the selector. Otherwise automatic switching seems to work well 90% of the time. I've had the selector for almost 1 Year.

Functional, but has a few problems
Posted by: jbissett from: Grovetown, GA on
This product has the functionality that you want when buying it, but it comes with its share of problems and annoyances. First, there are 3 ports in the back (where you would want them to be) and one in the front (which will look terrible). This is also not programmable to a universal remote which is annoying. Lastly, when using a blu-Ray player or watching Netflix on our console, the video and audio doesn't match up and we often have to turn the port selector off and on in order for them to match up again.

Works exactly as expected
Posted by: Flotown4 from: South Carolina on
My older Panasonic plasma has only one HDMI port. So what to do when you have a Blu-ray and a X-box 360 Kinect to connect? Buy one of these. Realized when I got home that I needed another HDMI cable (output) so make sure you have enough for all your inputs + an output before you leave the store. Very easy to install. Has been working perfectly for past 3 weeks.

Does not work properly
Posted by: ItalyTulbitFun from: Locust Grove, VA on
I purchased this switch a coupe months ago and it was very easy to install and get to work. The auto switching capability is great, but you have to make sure that your device supports CEC or it will not switch automatically. I can even program it into my Harmony remote, which is great.
The problem I have with this device, it that the picture will constantly go in and out. Sometimes I even get black boxes all over my screen.
All devices are working perfectly fine without the switch installed. I upgraded my HDMI cables thinking that maybe the cables were the problem, but it did not work. So I gave up and took it out thinking it was a defective product.
Last week I decided to purchase another one, thinking that this time it may work. I was wrong. As soon as I plugged it in, I got the exact same problem right out of the box. I feel like this is a manufacturer defect and will be returning it to the store. Will not buy another one. Too expensive for a product that does not work. Hopefully Best Buy will start carrying a different brand HDMI switch.

We bought this for my daughter's TV because it did not have enough HDMI ports. The specs on the box indicated it worked for all resolutions and would auto switch to the active port. Well, it never did switch to the active port automatically and after a couple of days, it failed altogether. Picture got grainy and it would not longer change ports even manually. We return it to Best Buy and bought a cheapo at Walmart for less than half the price which worked perfectly and even auto switched to the active port.

Nice idea, poor product
Posted by: gary8730 from: mi on
The first one that I hooked up worked fine with the Kindle but when I switched to the DVD the screen on the tv blacked out for 1 - 2 seconds about every 15 seconds. I exchanged and the second one did the same thing. I contacted Rocketfish, they said either it was a bad HDMI cable or a bad switch. I tried switching all of the cables around to no avail. Returned the unit and went to WalMart where I purchased the small GE round disc, it worked perfectly for $25 less!

DO NOT BUY
Posted by: Matt from: on
Went to Best Buy looking for a receiver to plug all of my components into and to operate through. The salesman asked if we were hooking speakers up to it (it was going in a bedroom), so we said no. He recommended the rocketfish as a cheaper solution. We purchased it instead of a receiver based on his recommendation. It was easy to install and worked with one problem. When you turn the TV on your screen will come up black rather than the last component you were using. In order to get it to the component you would like to use, you must select another input and then come back to the one you want. It's not a big deal but is an inconvenience. For that reason I would not purchase this product or reccomend it to anyone.

Have my TV above the fireplace and didn't want a bunch of cords going up the wall. This was the perfect thing to resolve that. Love that it comes with a remote

Would be nice...if it worked
Posted by: iaha from: on
Went through two of these before giving up on the product. Was trying to route an Xbox 360, PS3, and WII U through it into my home theater receiver and only the number 2 input worked correctly on both units! The others either didn't work at all or had horrible artifacting. I tried every combination of plugs to make it work but none did. All of the consoles worked just fine plugged directly into the TV or receiver but the switch failed on all fronts. At least Best Buy has a good return policy!

very useful switch
Posted by: 1ACE from: Moreno Valley, CA on
A very useful switch if you have multiple HD devices to connect and your TV/monitor does not have enough HDMI capacity.
