    "PERFECT" Solution to a Head Scratching Problem

    Most televisions come with 2 maybe 3 HDMI ports, if you are like my family you have Comcast, Fire Sticks, Blu-Ray DVD Players and any number of tech gadgets that connect to a television for better viewing. The problem is they either sit behind the television or are unplugged waiting for you to plug them in every time you need to use them. Thanks to the Dynex™ - 3-Port HDMI Switch that issue is solved in my home! They also have a 4 switch setup that I may have to get in the future but for now my needed HDMI port issues are solved. Its a small box that requires you to plug it into a power source then plug your HDMI plugs into the ports then you can sit back and enjoy which ever item you wish to watch with ease. It has a manual switch button right in the middle of the box but it also can connect automatically when it detects a power switch come on from the device you are wanting to watch. For it to switch automatically each device you plug into it must be able to be turned off completely and not in a standby mode. the switch has to be able to detect either power on or off to function in the automatic mode, otherwise you will be switching it manually. Extremely easy to use and set up! No additional resources or tools needed. It works right out of the box and comes at a very reasonable price. If you are like I was trying to figure out a reasonable way to add addition HDMI ports to your television then you need to try this little gadget out. I have put it to the test and it passed with flying colors. Now I am going to get another one for another television/computer set up for gaming and movies.

    Works As Expected

    This product works exactly how I'd want it to and meets most of the specs listed in the product's information. I enjoy the ease of swapping between 3 external devices plugged into my TV, and the quality has not degraded since day one. The connection is perfect. One con about this product is the automatic switching. The product states that it will switch automatically to whichever source is turned on when connected to the HDMI switch. This worked perfect for the first few weeks then the number of times dropped drastically. Every once and a while it will switch automatically, but majority of the time I have to switch it manually. This is a minor con yet one to make note of for anyone who wishes not to get up and switch it themselves!

    HDMI Switch eliminates hassle

    If you want to connect the same monitor with a desktop CPU, a Roku, and say, a microprocessor such as a Raspberry Pi, all with HDMI, but you don't want to pull wires in and out and would rather keep it simple, then here you go. The switch on top will toggle between all of your inputs, and send the source you want on to your monitor. Just keep in mind: HDMI transmits audio too, and you can avoid multiple connection hassles to your speakers as well, but you'll need an HDMI pass-through device that separates the audio out to an RCA connection. And, an additional (short) HDMI cable between the Dynex 3-to-1 switch and the audio splitter.

    You cant beat this product for the price. I wanted to add Chromecast to one of my older LED TVs and I only had 2 HDMI ports. I was already using one port for the cable box and one for the DVD player. I removed the HDMI plug for the DVD player, plugged in this box then plugged the DVD player and the Chromecast to the Dynex. It solved my problem and it worked perfectly. I installed the box behind the TV. I had read some reviews that said this would not work with the Chromecast but I have not had a single problem. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is that it does not come with a remote so you will have to get up every time you want to change it (Oh the tragedy).

    Great Value and Almost Perfect!

    This product is simple to use and has a small footprint. No issues with picture quality or sound. I connected a Sony Blue-Ray DVD player, Apple TV and X-1 satellite cable box from Comcast to a Sony TV that only has 1 HDMI port. Some reviews mentioned a lack of auto switching between inputs, this happens when the input device is not turned off. So this happens when switching away from the X-1 box as it is not turned off, however works perfect when you turn off the DVD player or Apple TV. Would recommend as a great simple solution at a great price.

    Much smaller than expected

    Didn't want to have to go this route -- both because I didn't need another outboard device next to our TV and also because even with the promised automatic source switching you just know that at some point you're going to have to do bounce switching manually. Got it all connected and it seems to work, but it's so small it doesn't have the weight to lie flat if your cables have any twists or turns in them. Not certain yet what to do about that. Usually smaller is better, but not this time.

    Doesn't perform as advertised, but works

    I bought the device to switch between two HDMI inputs (cable box and VCR) into a single HDMI TV input. I was hoping it would automatically switch between the two inputs depending on which device was turned on. It does do this...sometimes, but I usually have to get up and hit the button to get it to switch inputs. As long as you're willing to do this, the device is dependable and worth the 25 bucks it cost.

    I hooked up the HDMI splitter with known good cables and when I use the device it displays the video and sound but on the screen there are white dots that are noticeable with a black screen. I have tested the cables again to make sure that it is not the cables and I do not have that issue when I directly connect the devices. Since this is only for the gaming tv and I have tried another box with the same results I will just live with it. For the price it is okay as long as you know the issues.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend
