        Connected a PS4, a broadband TV box in one side. And the other side a Denon amplifier to a Sony TV, and a Sony personal viewer in the other side. All well connected with nearly perfect pictures. Both the sound and video transfer perfectly between the inputs and outputs. It is cheaper than other expensive brands or models, but performs as perfect as them. Highly recommend to anyone need to split the output signals with various inputs!

          Not the fastest syncing unit, but it's pretty quick.

          Unfortunately, I couldn't get this to work for me. I have a projector, and a 46" Samsung TV, and it would work for a while, then not be able to sync the source. I returned the original one, got a new one. It worked intermittently, just as did the first. At this point, I will look for another 2X2 switch.

              This unit did not perform very well from the start. It had a lot of trouble syncing the signal out to 2 different TVs. It would take a long time and the picture would come and go several times before it would finally sync up and display the video and audio on the TVs. Then, five weeks after I got it, output #2 would not pass audio, only video. It was after the 30-day return period, so I am now looking for a better 4x2 switch. Not a KanexPro!

                Comments about KanexPro HDMI 4x2 True Matrix Switcher with Signal Equalization & Audio Support:

                While my wife is watching skating in the room, where all our devices are connected, I sit in the kitchen and watch my favorite film. Picture quality is excellent. I connect TV receiver, BD player and network media player. 4th input reserved for camera. I didn't expect that time delay would be so long. And I think - the light of diodes - too bright. Very useful remote control.

                  I tried several similar products, but I have to admit the KanexPro is the great. Easy to install & excellent performance. Just make sure you got HDMI 1.4 cables. Not so happy thou with the delay on switching the source.

                        It seems to work very well, but we have some sync problems with it. Kanex is very helpful in the troubleshooting. I'm actually not suspecting this device to be at fault. It's probably an attached scaler.
