You won't regret it, they sell a really nice piece @ the most affordable price. Trumps active switches that are triple the price.

I received my MonoPrice HDX-402E matrix today and just briefly tried it, works great!smile.gif
I also added it to my Logitech Harmony software and the setup was super smooth, there is a small delay when switching sources like others pointed out earlier but it`s not that much, like 2-3 seconds or so.

After having tried out three different brands of matrix switches before this one, i think i`ve finally found one that works with my gear.

Unfortunately, i`m getting audio lag lately when i watch blu-ray with my Oppo player. If i bypass the matrix and connect player directly to AVR, the lag disappear.
Anyone else experiencing this?

Could switching HDMI cables to other lengths/brands help solving this? Or is it more likely because i have to many devices in the signal chain (matrix, scaler & AVR)?

The switch can't cause "audio lag" as it's handing the audio/video data stream together and passing it along - any latency caused by the switch would be in both audio and video. The issue is elsewhere. You may have switched audio formats or enabled/disabled the HDMI lip-sync feature though by moving the cables (either by removing an incompatibility of that feature, or by simply causing the devices to re-negotiate).

Cables and lengths will have no effect. Devices and switching in the chain are the likely cause.

Not quite sure i understand what you mean by this?

It's possible i have disabled the lip-sync feature. I suppose the on/off setting for lip-sync is in the AVR?
Will check my settings.

Meaning that when you switch in other displays / devices, one of them may report a different lip-sync value, or may be confusing the issue by saying "not supported" or the like... So it may not be that you changed a setting - it may be that the nature of the "common denominator" problem is rearing its head. Power cycle everything, connect just to your primary display / AVR and see if the problem goes away. Then you'll be able to see what causes the situation as you change inputs/outputs.
