Same here, same experience. I also have a Pioneer Elite 84TX 4x1 receiver.

Yeah the Monoprice.com switcher worked like a charm, my ISF Calibrator said that he had a friend who bought one from Futureshop (cant recall the brand name) and that he was having all sorts of issues with it.

Geffen had issues but I am told they have been replacing those.

One more vote for the Monoprice 5X1 as well as 2X1 in my Denon 2307ci.

Anyone heard of a Budget Switch like the one from Monoprice but with a 4 X 2 configuration, maybe even 3 X 2. I don't like splitters and adapters, it increases the possibility of connector problems.


Thanks

I've also got a Monoprice 5x1 (2.1). But I'm having a problem with an Oppo Digital DV-981HD upconverting DVD player. Works fine directly connected to a Sony KD-34XBR960, but nothing if connected to the switch.

I'm trying to figure out which one to buy. I have a samsung DLP, Hughes DVR and want to buy the new Toshiba HD-DVD player and will have a playstation 3 hooked into it. I thought to get the Gefen but after going to their forums and seeing how many people were having problems i'll pass on that for now. Belkin also has a 3X1. Does anybody know anything about that one?

+1 for the monoprice switcher. I have a 2x1 unit, and is flawless. Good price too, considering the local bb and FS wanted over 3x the price for it!.


R8der, you might want to try different inputs on the unit itself. I've heard ppl having some success moving the player/ps3 from input 1 to 2 or vice versa. I have the 970H and it's working fine on #1.

The Radiient Select-4 is a 4to1 HDMI Switch that has both HDMI and SimplayHD logos, meaning it has passed both HDMI compliance and SimplayHD certification and interoperability testing.


I'm the President of Radiient, and a co-inventor of HDMI, and I just wanted the community to know about our product, as it has solved many problems for our customers who have experienced issues with compatibility when trying to connect multiple HDMI sources to their HDMI displays. Please see our website for details, and search the web for the many positive reviews the product has received.

It's supposed to be out next month. I think I may give it a try.

Just a little update on this nice looking 4 port switcher from XtremeMac.


This unit was supposed to start shipping this week (Feb. 1). I spoke with someone over there today and she said that it has been delayed until March. No date was given, BTW.


Also, this unit does come wth an IR remote, so it should work with any IR universal remote (such as the Harmony 880).

Anyone using the Octava 3x2 HDMI crossover? Or another switch with 2 outputs?


I would like to hook my PS3, Toshiba A2, and Dish Network VIP-622 DVR to my flat screen and Panasonic PT-ax100u front projector.


Thank you.
