Can anyone here possibly recommend an HDMI switcher? I just bought a Kinivo and after spending 2 hours rerouting and rearranging cables and trying everything I could think of to get this stupid "plug and Play" unit to work I finally realized it does not. I need to run Fios box, Samsung Blu Ray and HK AVR to Panny Plasma and would prefer it to be an auto switcher for the wife and kids. Thanks for your help

I tried two models. The second actually worked as promised. I can't recall the model but I will "try" to remember to take a peek tonight. You will probably get more useful advice before I ever remember.

I have a monoprice.com 5x1 switcher that has been used with my system for the past three or four years without any trouble, it is remote controlled.

I also have a monoprice but a 4x1 switcher. It’s also worked perfect for about 4 years or more. I got it after trying one I bought at a local electronics store but theirs didn’t play nice with my Xbox 360.

I have a monoprice 4x1 with a remote that works just fine. I did buy their fat cables to go with it, but the last device I added, I just used the one that came with it.

I have an Oppo that is auto switching. It also has a remote but the auto switching works so well I have never had to use it.

Sure, Mike; no good reason to pay more than for the MonoPrice unit.

Of course, I forgot to check my model. I know I purchased it locally at The Source for more than it was worth. It works great though. The remote sits idle after using it to program my URC.

However, I will duck, cover and risk saying that it was a Monoprice model that I had trouble with. From the above, it sounds like it was an anomaly and it should have been returned. However, the return shipping was almost as much as it was worth so I just bought a new one.
