I was hoping someone could help point me in the right direction since my research to this point hasn't yielded any results. I'm looking for an HDMI input switch that can be controlled either over a network connection or that I could somehow control using a PC or smartphone.

Specifically, I need only 2 HDMI inputs with 1 HDMI output, and I need to be able to control the switch preferably without the use of IR. When I say it needs to be programmable, I need to be able to control it using custom code. (I am connecting this to a custom application I'm writing, so I need to be able to control it inside my own application over a network from a custom iOS or Android application or a web application.)

Although not ideal, if something like that doesn't exist, I'd love to hear ideas on how I could use some other device that could somehow act as a bridge between a network connected device with a custom app and some sort of IR or RF controller.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

Monoprice 4x4 switch does have a rs-232 serial port. If the switch will be near a pc, that's an easy and reliable interface to custom code. Of course ir from the pc might be easier.

There are also wired and wireless Ethernet to RS-232 adaptors available to make networking of RS-232 devices easy...
