Ultra High Performance HDMI Switcher

I got this Ultra High Performance HDMI Switcher from Amazon. It was selling for a low $11 and I was quite sceptical. Does it even work when normally such HDMI switch sells for more than USD 20 or in some cases in Singapore, more than 50 dollars or even up to several hundred. This is like USD 11 ??!!

It is not helped when I finally received it. There was no power cable. How do you get this thing to work with a power cable. Do I need to pay even more to get a power cable !!??

It comes with 3 IN ports for HDMI and 1 OUT port.

When I read finally read the reviews in Amazon (yes. stupid right ? Read AFTER buying), I realized that the HDMI switch is powered by the source through the HDMI cables and there is no need for any power supply most of the time. Also there was a remote control supplied but again, surprising for a HDMI switch of this price, there was no real need for that too. The HDMI switch will switch the HDMI signals automatically.

I connected a cable TV with HDMI and a AC Ryan with HDMI to the HDMI switch and from there, to the Yamaha YSP2200 IN port. The OUT port in Yamaha YSP2200 then goes to the LCD TV. It works brilliantly. I switched on the AC Ryan and immediately the switch detects it and then the AC Ryan screen appears on the TV. I then switched on the cable TV and the switch automatically switches over to the cable TV. No power. No remote. It works !

Highly recommended !
