Monoprice 4x2 PRO HDMI Switch

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Looks like Monoprice is releasing a followup to the 4x2 switch they've been offering for a year now, though I can't tell if it's a matrix switch by the description. The Monoprice part number is 4920, and it's called the "4X2 PRO Series HDMI Powered Switch w/ Remote Controller (1.2b version)". No details at all on their website, but the price is the same as the previous 4x2 matrix switch.

Comments or thoughts? I may try this thing out and see if it fixes my non-anamorphic detection issues with my Oppo DV-980H. I don't need matrix switching, but it would be great if this thing solved all the problems of the previous switch AND was full matrix.

Interesting - wonder if it has RS-232 control or addressable IR?

Well, they released the specs and I'm not really sure why they call it "Pro":

HDMI 1.2b compliant
HDCP compliant
Supports DTS, DOlby, 7.1-Channel surround sound
Gold plated contacts for corrosion resistance
IR Remote Control included
Power supply included.
Display mirroring (not matrix)



The enclosure looks nice (to some perhaps... it's a bit gaudy for me), but no pro features I can see. Not even HDMI 1.3. Pretty disappointing. Guess I'll stick with the 4x2 matrix I have now until something better comes along.

I agree. I was waiting for this and it's not even a 'matrix' switch. I was going to buy their 4x2 matrix switch but it appears it does not have an HDMI extender.
