Super Compact 3-Port HDMI Selector Switch!
Connect three HDMI source devices to a HDMI display or receiver, with a single push-button to cycle between connected inputs one at a time.
Honey, I Shrunk the HDMI Switch! This darling little pocket-sized HDMI selector switch is by far the smallest device of its kind I've ever seen, but even though it's petite and discreet, it will make all the difference in your home theatre or office when it comes to expanding the number of HDMI ports available on your reciever or tv.
This semi-passive switch from Avencore allows you to connect up to three input devices (eg: DVD Player, Console and PVR) to one HDMI port on your TV, and cycle between them at the push of a button. It requires no external power, taking what few amps it needs for the LED indicators and chipset straight from the HDMI power rail.
That means there are no power packs or transformers - just plug in and play! Super small, super light, super easy to transport and super simple to use, it's fantastic for any application where switching HDMI is needed. It doesn't have a remote (because it's unpowered) but I think we can live with that for the savings!

Hi, what does it mean by "semi-passive" HDMI switch ?
"This switch uses the 5-volt power supply that is part of the incoming HDMI signal to run a simple chipset which allows output cycling from a single button press."

I will like to know if the 3-way compact passive hdmi switcher works with PS4 and if I can connect to a Computer monitor instead of a TV
"At the moment, we haven't tested with a PS4 ourselves, but there is no reason why it shouldn't. It can connect to a TV, Projector or PC Monitor without problems, and should be perfectly fine for your needs."

Where does the 5v power come from? TV on the output or other devices on the inputs?
"The power conductor inside HDMI cables is always supplied from the source device (not the display)."

I want to use this with my AppleTV. What is the difference with this product that is not guaranteed to work with AppleTV and some of your other switch products that do?
"This switcher uses a microchip and a tiny bit of power from HDMI to direct the signals around. This microchip has the potential to interfere with the strict content protection used by Apple TV. The 4-port passive switch is purely mechanical, using no HDMI power or microchips at all, so it can't ever be detected or blocked.
It is a small difference, but because Apple TV can issue a system update at any time, we can't guarantee ongoing operation of a non-mechanical switch."

I want to use this product to switch between input from a PC and input from a Mac (second screen) into a computer monitor. I don't expect an issue but I read your point about Apple TV... could this be an issue?
"No issue for Mac and PC. Apple TV has strict content protection which can block a lot of splitters and switches, but computer-based content like web, apps and games has either no content protection or the same level as Blu-ray, which this switch supports."
