      Answer

      Yes, it does. You have to turn off the current device before turning on the next one to use. Doing it this way tells the switch which HDMI feed to switch to. I do this between my blueray player and AppleTV with no problem.

              Answer

              Yes. They make several electronic switches that can be used to add up to 5 additional devices when you run out of HDMI connections. They are very simple to hook up and use.

              I have two (2) 1080 monitors and wish to switch between them when on my computer. One I use when doing my work and the other (much larger in size) when I want to watch a movie or cable TV program. Will this device work for that?   (3 Answers)

                No. This device is designed for switching between multiple inputs to one output. For example, one TV screen and switching between DVD player and laptop as the input source. The picture of the product shows three ports labelled as "in" and one port labelled "out."

                Your question is a little bit like a riddle, But I am also a gamer on the PS4 so I am a little sympathetic to your circumstance.! My suggestion would be to just try a regular run-of-the-mill HDMI cable first. I really doubt that purchasing this Forest HDMI cable is going to solve any of the hangups that you are incurring .
