is a high performance HDMI switch with a remote control. This automatic HDMI switch senses when you turn ON a device & automatically switches to it. The HDMI switch and all its wires (5 input, one output) can be stowed discreetly BEHIND the DVD player or cable box or whatever because it is so small and in effect it can be invisible. It has an IR cable to extender the IR to the fron of the box it is controlling. The HDMI switch automatically goes to the nearest signal source, though, only one out of the three devices "HDMI output, not OFF/ON switch" can be on at any given time. An AC connector is there for "HDMI devices that don't fully comply with the HDMI standards to provide +5V power pin 18 on the HDMI connector such as some DVR/PVRs. "You may need the above power adapter for those devices."NOTE 1:
The HDMI switch will automatically select the "live" HDMI input; if more than one HDMI input is "live" the input with the smaller number will be selected; if you have a device that is always live, put it on HDMI input #3. An Apple TV is always ON. You can determine if a device outputs a "live" HDMI even when the device appears to be turned off by observing the switches response to your connecting the device. If you plug in a device that is turned off and the switch selects it and illuminates its LED, then this device's HDMI output is always "live".

Cable and satellite boxes tend to put out constant power, so hook them up to the lowest priority port (#3) and hook up your video game system(s) and/or Blu-ray player to port 1 or 2. Port one has the highest priority...which means when ever that device is on the switcher will always be on port 1 unless you switch it manually. The opposite is true for port 3...only active if it is the only active port. Port 2 has priority over port 3, but not port 1.NOTE 2:
A few devices like some DVR's, cable and satellite receivers are "always ON" so auto-sensing switchers, like these, need the "always On" devices, to be at a lower video input so it doesn't block other switcher devices. If you have 2 devices that are always ON you'll need to use the buttons and / or remote control ( if they have them ) to switch inputs. An Apple TV keeps its HDMI port active even in the sleep state so auto-switching may not work with the Apple TV. Manual switching can still be used.
