Description



This 5-way HDMI switcher routes high-definition video (in multiple resolutions up to 1080p) and digital audio from any one of the five sources to the display.

All inputs accommodate the connections of the high definition video sources simultaneously, compatible with HD-DVD, Sky HD, PS3, Xbox360, etc. The output sends the high definition audio/video signals to a high definition display.

If you are in the market for one and need less connections, there was one on offer a few weeks ago at Aldi that was a 3 HDMI one, with the IR sensor on an "eye" the same, so you can tidily velcro the unit to the back of the tv out of sight, and have the IR sensor placed somewhere on your TV stand to toggle between the inputs.

I bought one last night, reduced from £9.99 to £7.99.

Heat added for this, if you need that many, if not may be worth checking out Aldi.

I don't think it is a splitter though whatever Play say.

Enlarged photo clearly shows 1 Output and several inputs.

That is right!!! Surely the Output is the TV which you would normally have one of.
Unless you want to split 1 DVD player to 5 TVs, this is ideal.

Not sure what you were expecting it to show???
Switch/splitter sounds ok to me.

Not sure of the definitions of switch/splitter. But I think you are right, splitter refers to the output so this isn't a splitter juts a switcher. I have a 4x2 switch/splitter which means 4 in and 2 outputs. One output to the TV one to the projector. Works like a dream. This is a 5x1 (i.e. 5 in 1 out).:thumbsup:

For a similiar switcher try the "Neet" one from amazon (marketplace) I have one and its excellent - it also has much better reviews too.

Neet also do a splitter too.

I need one of these, but without any aldis around me, I suppose I have to wait for one which is cheaper.

Just because the title that the seller gives is slightly inaccurate, doesn't mean its not a good deal.

And anyway, the description is fine:-

Can't be much more specific than that!

Have to agree with justinh and co, Splitter implies multi out, e.g. to TV and Projector, and this is a simple switch. Shame I need a good splitter/switch/marix

Voted hot. Very useful if you need more HDMI's ports.

Not bad reviews on the web regarding this one at £20 -

misleading post? LOL i copied exactly what is said on the site- troll :whistling:

It's a switch - Useful.

Have some heat.

I bought one of these off Ebay a few months ago - well it looks exactly the same - but wouldn't work properly for me :-(

Tried to use it with a Popcorn Hour, HD Freesat receiver and Bluray player...ended up buying a simple manual pushbutton version which works well...
