Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Exactly what I needed.

Pros: Arrived quickly. Nice & compact. Basic piece of equipment with no unnecessary bells & whistles.

Cons: No info on how to set it up on a universal remote. Comes with an IR receiver cable but no instructions.

Works perfectly

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I purchased this HDMI switch from Crutchfield just because there are so many HDMI switches out there that don't actually work like I want them to work. This one works perfectly.

Pros: Works exactly as you would expect it to; no glitches, no re-booting, no audio sync problems.

Cons: None after three month of use.

Simple setup and easy to use

Stephen from Charlottesville, VA on 5/5/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I got this device to replace an older HDMI switch that no longer functioned properly. This was about one-half the cost of the older unit that I had purchased from Crutchfield about 5 years ago, and is smaller and works great. I added it as a device with activities on my Harmony Touch Remote and works like a charm. Its in my bedroom, and the red indicator light is pretty bright, and would be annoying if you're trying to sleep, but they thought of everything and included 4 stick on round rubber shields, about 1/4" diameter, that you can use to solve the problem. Works great.

Pros: Small, simple to connect, setup, link with remote and use

Cons: Bright indicator lights that could be distracting, but shields solve the problem. The instructions don't mention them, and you might not even notice them in the packaging, or if you do you might not know what their purpose is and throw them out with the trash.

Great item, easy install, easy to use.



Neat product that did the trick

AHubz from Illinois on 5/31/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have 3 devices I have to run from a single HDMI connection on my TV. I called Crutchfield about another product that I thought would do the trick, but when I described my situation, they realized I was about to order the wrong splitter and directed me to this one. Thank heavens. This does exactly what I want - connect my Bluetooth DVD player, my cable box, and my Roku to the TV. The device is easy to install and works efficiently by a remote. I would give it 5 stars, but it although it is very small and not intrusive, it has a clunky design with the sides sticking out past the front. I haven't figured out why that is, but it's a minor issue. Mainly I like it because it works smoothly and answers my need perfectly.

Pros: Easy to install and operate Compact design

Cons: Clunky look

EJ from Orlando, FL on 8/10/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great product for adding another HDMI line to a tv. Before we purchased this product, we had to disconnect one component from our tv in order to connect the Apple TV. With this product, we are now able to keep all of our other components and our Apple TV connected all the time. This enables us to get more use out of our Apple TV.

Pros: Easy to install and easy to use.

Cons: This product uses a dremote, which adds to our collection of them. It is, however, worth it because it has enabled us to easily utilize our Apple TV.

Q & A

Customer Q&A

Crutchfield asked  
Why did you buy this?

need more HDMI ports [ Jason  Nov 27, 2018 ]
My son's TV had only one HDMI input and I've read too many horror stories about HDMI switches not working. I chose this one from Crutchfield because I trust their technological prowess and their reputation to stand behind what they sell. [ Stephen  Jul 31, 2016 ]
I have only 1 HDMI input on my TV. This product will give me more HDMI inputs for my TV. [ Keith Barringto  Jul 30, 2016 ]
Appears simple to use, price point. [ Michael  Jan 03, 2016 ]

2 questions already asked

Yes. Works fine. [ RALPHAEL D  Dec 29, 2018 ]
I used this hdmi switch as a temporary solution until I upgraded my TV. I would NOT use this unless necessary especially with newer tech. [ LESLEY  Dec 28, 2018 ]
Frankly, I only bought this as a bridge of using new Tech with a old TV. I think it would degrade the quality of newer 4K etc [ LESLEY  Oct 04, 2018 ]
It's just a switcher. If your devices have HDMI outputs, it should work with them. [ JAY N  Oct 04, 2018 ]
