Has anyone tried this product, it seems like the price of $499 is well below similar products out there. In my experience thinks that look too good to be true, never quite work out.


I am trying to send 3-4 inputs to 4 outputs and this seems to be the most cost effective solution.

I emailed them and Picture by Picture is defined this way:


The Picture by Picture just means that the Matrix allows you to put same or different pictures on 2 HDTV.

Its not the small picture inside picture.


The audio will always be same as the video you are wathcing.


For example,

if you are watching PS3 on HDTV 1, the audio on HDTV1 will be from PS3


If you are watching DVD on HDTV4, the audio on HDTV 4 will be from DVD



Thank You,

i ordered one and will let you know. They had the wrong power supply. I had their 4x1 hdmi switcher and it was the only one that i could find that works flawlessly.

Just to be clear, you ordered which one, the Octava or the

CE compass?


... and therefore you had the same brand 4x1? Octava?

Has anyone used/found the software to use this device via rs232 or over a network?


I use a Kramer VGA matrix that has rs232 control that I would like to replace, but I need to maintain that rs232 connection.
