Pros Small size, auto switch, low price
Cons Not compatible with all devices, software issues
Summary I purchased this product from ecost.com. First product arrived. Clean packet and small in size. Connected my Verizon FIOS cable hdmi out to input 1, JVC DVD hdmi out to input 2 and output to my JVC 702 receiver hdmi input. No video! removed the DVD from input 2 and connected whole thing again. Now I see the video, connected DVD to the input, still see the video and sound. Switched between the DVD to FIOS, the video/sound displayed properly. Now I turn off my receiver (JVC 702 which is the output of the switch), turn back off, video from FIOS, but no sound. The video also got shrinked from 1080i to something which is different, switched to DVD, no video, or sometimes video with no color/fog etc.
Ordered another one from ecost.com, thinking as a manufacturing defect. Second one also tested same. Called AudioVox, manufactor, technical support, just heard my explanation and answered "Not compatible". I explained again to technical support that all my devices are HDMI 1.3 compatible, as mentioned in the manual. Again, one line answer from manufactor "Not compatible". So, please do not buy this product from some where which it is difficult to find whether compatible or not compatible. Per manufactor, if it works it is compatible, other wise not. No real explanation.
But I still like the size and look of this product, can I find one with same size, look and price, which works! SEARCHING!
