Okay, after one session, here's a preliminary report.
The switch is ridiculously easy to install and use and functions properly, first of all. No complaint. I have two devices connected sending both audio and video to the 111, my cable box (Scientific Atlanta) and an Oppo 83 in Auto output mode. The input the switch connects to is ISF-calibrated.
In viewing, images are definitely softer than they were through the EDGE, even HD ones. And I noted a disturbing number of audio dropouts with cable, many more than before the switch; I'll need to do a comparison and investigate further to know if the switch does this or the cable feed. Such a sudden, dramatic change is suspicious. No such problem with the Oppo.
I have a DVDO Duo on the way, so the switch will be in place for perhaps another 7-9 days.
