I bought two of these animals because of the reviews and specs...that, and the fact that the availability makes this a hard item to get. Because I have two, I was able to do some basic testing to make sure the problems I initially was experiencing weren't, in fact, due to bad HW. Here's what I discovered...
When you go to set up your components, MAKE SURE EVERYTHING IS POWERED OFF AND DISCONNECTED!!
When I say everything, I mean everything. The components, the switch, the TV...all of it. It may not be practical, but you are better off literally unplugging the power from everything before you connect ANY HDMI cables. The pics show that I have an Xbox One X and a Sony PS4 as the only two items connected to a SONY 40" curved 4k monitor. Initially, I thought that the consoles would be ok in a "Power Rest" mode. Once I'd plugged in my HDMI cables, I plugged in the power to Switch ONE and fired up the Xbox. WOOHOO! Now, let's fire up the PS4! That's when things got weird...
Switch ONE kept intermittently flashing, meaning it would kill the vid/aud feed from Input1 (Xbox) and try to jump over to Input2 (Playstation). It would hang, then try and go back to the Xbox, be ok for a few seconds, then repeat this annoying habit of trying to go back to the PS (which was in it's Power Rest mode). Figuring that the PS was doing a 'keep awake/connected' pulse out the HDMI port, I disconnected the PS (just pulled the HDMI cable out of the Input2 port), and the Xbox was able to work with no issues. Every time I'd plug the PS back into Switch ONE (regardless of which input port), the same behavior would manifest. Flash off of Xbox, try to go to PS, go BACK to Xbox....wash, rinse, repeat.
I was able to get Switch ONE to work by powering down EVERY component (did some other tests that I won't go into here with an Apple TV) and disconnecting the switch power, as well as the power cables from the consoles. I plugged in all of my HDMI cables, THEN powered on the switch ONLY. I then plugged in and turned on the Xbox, no issues. Then plugged in and turned on the PS, VOILA! It still flashed....I know. I was hoping that would've fixed it too.
For this particular switch, I had to hold in the SWITCH button per the Mfg's directions for ~ 8 sec. to turn off the Auto-switching mode. With that done, you can see that Input 1 is Blue, Input 2 is RED and I have stability even if both consoles are on, regardless of 'power state'.
Did I mention I did some testing with two switches? After verifying that I got the same behavior on both switches (initially), I tried just powering everything down and plugging everything in to Switch TWO. Powered up Switch two, powered up Xbox, then powered up PS...oddly enough, Switch TWO was able to figure out how to navigate the issue and did not do the 'flashing' behavior. I did NOT have to hold in the SWITCH button for ~8 sec. on the second switch.
Both switches will not Auto Sense and switch. I believe that is just the best you're going to get if you have any Apple or SONY products connected to this switch. You're stuck using the remote. Which isn't that bad, you can see in pic 4 that I keep mine right on top of the Xbox, and when I'm ready to go get pwned on the PS I just pick up the remote and push the button for Input2. BOOP! Even if both consoles are powered up, it switches right over, no issues, no flashing, no drama fo' yo' mama.
Hope this helps anyone out there that's having issues getting this switch to work initially! I was able to get both to work with SONY, Xbox, PC, and Apple products connected...just no love on the auto-switching front. That's why it get's 4 stars instead of 5. I'd honestly give it 4.9 if I could, because the pic quality is perfect!!
The devices i had planned to use with this HDMI Switch are: PS4, AppleTV 4k, and a TV-channel box provider. If im using the Apple Tv or the Channel Box, and i decided to switch to the PS4, the Image will last a few minutes and then it will go Black while i can still hear the game running. This has happened to me a couple of times now, to the point that I decided to remove the PS4 connection from the HDMI Switch, and just change the HDMI cables manually in the TV every time Im going to use the PS4(this is where the HDMI Switch lost its purpose in the first place). Since then i havent had any problem with the Apple Tv and Channel Box in the same Switch, and the PS4 in its own HDMI cable.
I dont know if this Switch is not capable of handling a game console(which it suppose to) or is it broken, or what. All I know is that is not giving me the performance I was hoping for.
*********I WILL CHANGE/UPDATE THIS REVIEW IF IT GETS FIXED OR A SOLUTION ITS FOUND************
Now aside from the problems I've obviously had with this, it's seems to be very poorly constructed. It's small, which isn't a bad thing, but it's made of incredibly cheap plastic and does not seem very durable at all. Even though it is small, you still need a considerable amount of room for it as the ports for the output (to TV) and the input 5 port are on the right and left sides of the device. This means you need enough room on either side for the length of the HDMI cable and it makes cord management extremely unpleasant and the area around it unsightly. Also, after pulling off the sticky plastic on top, like what you find on the front of cell phones when you first get them, it left sticky streaks all over the visible top of the device making it even more unseemly. Still, we could deal with all of these other issues if it only worked the way it was supposed to.
