      Item looked simply enough, but I connected my Cable Box to 1 and my BluRay player to 2. Even if 1 is selected, the TV does not display unless the BluRay player is also turned on, even though that is on 2. Very annoying b/c whenever the BluRay player finally shuts off from non-use, the regular television display also goes out and you have to constantly turn on the player again. Makes no sense.

        Comments about Comprehensive CSW-HD201C 2x1 HDMI Switcher:

        It worked as it should, however it took experimenting to determine which input to enable, as the instructions were poor. Also the cable was so short that in order to reach the unit's switch(es), one had to move the screen away and reach behind it- often in the dark. Actually it should (or comparable) should have been recommended upon purchase of the TV. The Samsung Plasma 51' is a fine unit but really deserved more HDMi (&other), inputs.
        That said, It functions.

          To switch between multiple HDMI input to Single HDMI port 27" Monitor. Eliminates unplugging one HDMI Cable and plugging the other as needed. Very Handy. This switch is not externally powered is a drawback because signals from low power devices like small tablets doesn't produce full-screen image.I would suggest buy other powered switches available at B & H Photo for little additional cost.

            I ran out of HDMI inputs on my receiver so I bought this nifty device so I wouldn't have to keep swapping cables back and forth between my dvd player and my apple tv. It works like a charm. Haven't really tried the auto switching capability yet since streaming movies and tv shows is replace dvd's but even if it does switch automatically, all you have to do is get up and push a button.

                                        I bought this so that I can use the same screen with my PS3 and PC. It works perfectly and the 'smart' detection system automatically flips between devices based on which one is powered-up. Plus it doesn't feel or look cheap... definitely high-quality.
