Don't buy that brand, complain, let others know. Manufacturers that can't handle the basics have no business getting our dollars.
BenQ, Epson, Panasonic, Optoma, etc. do NOT have this issue. I'm not a fan of Viewsonic due to other, but similar, QC issues that are ridiculous.
Now, none of the switching is amazingly fast, as it often takes 5-10 seconds for a HDMI source to negotiate HDCP, but it certainly is faster than waiting for a projector to scroll through inputs.
My BenQ W1070 came out of the box with 'auto source select' turned on. I turned this feature off, and have had no issues at all. It sticks with HDMI input 1 and never causes me issues (yet... knock on wood).
