IOGEAR GHSW Reviews

Does exactly what it should

By Stephen
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-07-22

Works perfectly driving my monitor from either my MacBook Pro or my Mac Studio. Automatically switches when either is powered up, or switch input manually. One note: I had trouble with mix/match outputs from computers ie one usb-c/ one hdmi) , but changing both to usb-c made all good.

4 port HMDI switch Met my requirements

The IOGEAR 4 port met my requirements. Switch recognizes what is the active input and switches that feed to line going to our TV.

Seems like a nice unit however....

Seemed like a nice unit from other reviews, however it did not work at all with my Samsung smart TV. The auto detect feature of our tv would not recognize the switcher.

Doesn't drop connection on PC

I like this switch over some others I have tried. If a PC is connected, the HDMI connection doesn't drop when you switch away from that input.

A great gift for a gamer!

I got this for my husband's media setup. He has at least 6 game consoles and a soundbar all on one tv. It took us a couple tries, some troubleshooting, and some googling to get it working (follow the included quick start guide! The order you plug things in MATTERS!), but it's been working great since. The main problem we had was that the soundbar wouldn't work, even though its HDMI was plugged into the tv and not the switcher. Changed the soundbar hookup from HDMI to optical and that did the trick!

Nice switch - needed a little configuration

By Porfirio

This is a very nice switch. The only problem I had with it is some of the default (out of box) configuration settings were not as described. For example, auto switch was enabled out of the box even though the documentation says it should be off, Had to get a usb to rs232 cable to reconfigure for my application. Configuration was simple using the cable and hyperterminal (hadn't seen that in a while). Solid unit once it was configured properly.

Great product

HDMI Switch allows our church to select different inputs for our LED wall depending on whether we're running a Sunday morning or if we're having a Youth event, or even if we have a guest speaker , etc. Worked without fail first time and every time we power it on.

question

Can you connect this switcher to itself with the RS232 control cable and control multiple units at once?
Asked by: William David
The RS-232 connection on this unit is available so it can be be paired with a high-end control system, such as products made by Crestron and Extron. You should be able to connect multiple of these units to such a control system, however you will want to consult with an AV Engineer about creating such an advanced system.

Can you set this to fade between video inputs?

Can you set this to fade between video inputs?
Asked by: Silas
That is not possible. This is a basic AV switcher. You would need a production switcher to be able to fade between inputs. The Blackmagic Design ATEM Mini HDMI Live Stream Switcher is a great starting option for that, BH #BLSWATEMMIN. https://bhpho.to/2VuTdCS
