I'm sure you've long ago found the answer yourself but thought I'd answer for anyone else looking back on this question because it's a good one.

I ended up not buying this switch because it appears that in this configuration (2 devices going to one display, such as a laptop and a Playstation both hooked up to a TV) it requires one of those devices to be providing power at all times. This means you could potentially need, for example, to have the laptop on for the switch to have the power it needs to let the Playstation display on the TV. Not ideal.

For reference, see the review titled "Defective or terrible design? Either way, thumbs down.". He explains a similar situation. see less

Answer:
I don't think your audio problem would be due to the switch. HDMI bundles the audio and video signals together, if you're getting anything at all, audio or video, then the switch is working. I suggest you try making a direct connection from the source to your applet without the switch, if possible, as a test. Check you… see more I don't think your audio problem would be due to the switch.

Answer:
This is not a splitter. This is a switch. I used mine to come out of my receiver and into a TV or a projector. You can only select one item at a time though.

I could select the TV or the projector, but not both at the same time. This switch keeps one from having to plug and unplug the HDMI cables of the two devices you wish to use. All you have to do is push a button to switch between them. It worked well for me. see less This is not a splitter. This is a switch.
