4k compatible ones on eBay for less....
Looks exactly like the ones you can import from China on eBay.

Still a decent enough price for one sourced from the UK, but just interesting that it looks *exactly* the same, at least from what I can tell.

They won't output 4k or HDR though.
Ps4 doesn't work with ones that take power from the HDMI cable, you need one with an external power adapter.
Check your local CeX - these are all classed as generic according to them - picked up a super fancy Lindy 4K PiP one for £10!
Ok I’ll clarify something. I got this from Amazon yonks ago for use with a 1080 tv. I ordered a new 4K switcher as I’ve upgraded. Anyway I was scrolling through my orders on Amazon and the same product is now described as 4K so i hooked it my to my PS4 pro,Xbox one x and Amazon 4K fire tv box and yes it’s puts out 4K obviously connected with newer HDMI cables.

Really? I used one that looked exactly the same as this as my old AV unit was short on HDMI inputs and worked absolutely fine with my PS4.

Ashe you're right, the link below is to a £1.65 one which looks bang on the same.

I concur. Mine works perfectly. Perhaps there are loads of different innards inside a generic case and some maybe don't cut it.

Works fine with mine with the Xbox and PS4. May be time to get a new one.

There are loads on eBay that support 4k am@ 60hz that have been tested. just read reviews on them on Google using model numbers.

My PS4 works with one of these. Not this exact model, but it looks identical, and it's unpowered.
I don't get how these work. They allow several cables to go into one socket, but you can only have one device connected to the channel at any single time.

What's the point?

Saves you the hassle of unplugging/plugging in devices. Can leave them all setup.

No! That's awesome! I guess if I ordered one now I'd get a cheap generic one though
Sadly every time I visit Game and ask for something, they always and I mean always suggest I search online...Almost the same in CEX, I mean seriously I came into the store to physically see the items ffs! grr!

Yeah. I guess that's useful. Not essential though.

It can be for some.... If your TV's HDMI ports aren't easily accessible (wall mounted etc...)

Is there one where i can connect my ps4 to and switch between my pc monitor and TV?
RickDoyle5 h, 37 m ago

Yeah. I guess that's useful. Not essential though.


Of course it's essential for it's main purpose... Being that you can have additional HDMI ports if you're short for you TV.

Agreed! Essential for me anyhow, I've got two hdmi on tv wall mounted, running virgin, bluray, fire stick, now tv, xbox and still swap one out for android box. In fact could do with a bigger switch

Just search HDMI splitter on Amazon. There are loads for around £10-12.

They can, just depends what other HDMIs you have plugged in at the same time, I got one on eBay with 5 and it works fine no issues and like this was only a fiver

I don't think it auto switches though does it?

Note- This does not work with PS4
If anyone knows of a cheap one with arc support I'd be interested. Can't find one that isn't a full blown matrix and even then specs are sketchy.

Try Ca$h Con-verter$. You can see everything they have in stock AND pay more than the current retail price as well. It's a no-brainer. As in you would need to have no brain in order to buy from there.

Learned this the hard way. Bought a USB power cable for it, but it was a pain in the ass to plug it in.
To Mod who expired this - I just checked and it's still available? I can get upto the checkout which is usually not the case if GAME are out of stock.
pow2625 m ago

Yes it does!!


No it does not, tried 3 of them with a multitude of configurations. PS4 simply does not provide enough power over HDMI.

Original. We also have a PS4 Pro plugged into one downstairs, also works fine.
Maybe its just some configurations that require a powered switch, I do have a fair length if cable because it goes from PS4 to HDMI switch to surround sound receiver before finally getting to the TV. My symptoms were a flashing screen.
