Wow... what a great deal! seriously. HDMI cables go for like $20 in the stores (for crappy ones) and you get 3 here and a switch!!

I'm sure these are sold out by 9am

What's with the huge arse power cord? How much juice does this thing need?

And, no, it is NOT worth it for the cables. Why don't you people USE the internets to shop?

Well, the cords would be worth about $6-$9, so how good is a switch for $16? You can get one on Newegg for $35, $30 on monoprice, so still pretty good.

This will work great with my Dell 2408WFP monitor, which only has 1 HDMI port. I currently used it for my Xbox 360. Every time I switch from my PC (DVI) to my 360 (HDMI), I have to reach over and press the input button 5 times to get to the right input and another 5 times to switch back. It has been great pain in butt to do that.

With this switch, I am planning to have both PC and X360 connect to it with HDMI cable. Then I can change input by a remote and have 1080P with audio! The best part is that it even come with 3 HDMI cables! Awesome deal!

I'm gonna go with 3 six foot cables. By looking at the magnified picture they look like six foot cables but more than that- the goofy description is the one with the mention of the three foot cables--2 other places say six foot cables...

Everything is going HDMI and most displays don't offer enough ports. This is a great way to run all your equipment digitally without breaking the bank on a receiver. I have a similar unit running all my AV equipment. Cable box, Xbox 360, Upconverting DVD player, MythTV box all into the TV's 1 HDMI port. If you need more ports you can find good deals at Monoprice.. 1.3b certified stuff too.

Does anyone know how well these switches work when outputting to DVI using adapter cable? My TV is a little older but has a single HDCP DVI (I think it's HDCP... I should check) input instead of HDMI.

I'm glad all of the devices I want to plug in have separate optical digital outputs on them though. If I recall correctly DVI can't do audio...

The HDMI cables are 6 feet long (and there are three of them)

This is a great buy if you have an older or less expensive HDTV with only one HDMI input and now have found yourself owning multiple HD peripherals (HD Cable Box or DVR, Blu-Ray Player, etc.)

Aside from that, at this price it may be worth it to buy just for the 3 HDMI cables included and then toss this bad boy in the closet for use when you suddenly find a need for it in the future!

my tv has 2 HDMI ports, and i have a cable box with HDMI, a PS3, a 360, and my laptop i hook up DVI to HDMI, so i bought 2 just in case, and that was before i even realized they came with 3 HDMI cables as well

Can someone please answer a question for me? I went on and ordered this because I didn't want to miss out. However, when I went to confirm my order the order form changed from "you want 3 6 ft HDMI cables" to "you want 1 6 ft HDMI cable". I tried resubmitting twice with the same result. I, like most of you am doing this mainly for the cables and I want to make sure that I get 3.

Huh, I was actually planning on buying one of these since my Olevia TV only has one HDMI input Thanks woot! Now I can start the project to turn my PC into my new blu-ray player.

I was in the same boat. I have a Olevia 537H (which i still love) in my bedroom and will be adding a Uverse box to it.... so with only one HDMI, I needed extra ports for my HD DVD player and 360.... through in 3 more HDMI cables and this was a no brainer. In for one!

Awesome deal.. I was expecting to see a bookmark or laser pointer after yesterdays WootOff!! Picked one up for the same reason most of you did, the cables!! Well worth the price..

Don't worry about what people are thinking about you, because they're not thinking about you.. They're wondering what you're thinking about them...

Doesn't look like there are buttons on the front, so if you lose the remote, you're toast! Did a quick search for the manual but no luck. The Olevia site has a blurb about it (same as Woot's), but no more info.

Still it's such a deal (and I have an Olevia tv). I'm in for 2!

Tax and shipping hurt me but I went ahead and ordered it anyway. My current switch for some reason won't work, must be a handshake problem somewhere. I have my DishTV receiver and my Blu-Ray player and my Oppo DVD player all hooked up going to my Onkyo A/V receiver and from there, to my projector but it just won't work when I switch one to the other.

Will it work with a Logitech Harmony 550 universal remote? Which category of device would it be listed under?

EVERYTHING works with the 550 because even it it can't be found in their database, your remote can "learn" the commands needed from the devices remote.

Ugh... I would much rather buy cables and a better switch. Long story short if you lose/break you remote you are completely fxcked. I don't buy from companies that produce such carp... (ugly remote and ugly unit imho, and requiring a remote for functionality is just plain stupid.)

Yay gold connectors, but what kind of bs is running the length of the cable. Take your holier than though attitude and get off of woot if you are going to talk about quality. Seeing as how you are on woot though, I am inclined to believe you really don't care about the quality of the product, you just have enough HDMI ports to support your needs, and wanted to complain about something. Most people know that you can get a learning universal remote, and program it to control the box, nd who the hell is actually going to get up and press a button on the box anyway. Not an American."

-You are one of those people who think paying more = quality. The little bit of quality loss between a longer cable is something that only a true tard would worry about. If you have a nice big LCD tv you wouldn't be sitting that close anyway, and therefor would not notice that little bit.

nealpapin71 wrote:"Most people know that you can get a learning universal remote, and program it to control the box"


-Why would I get something I don't want... fact of the matter is, I shouldnt have to do anything extra to make a product do what I want.

just because it drives me crazy when people make statements about HDMI cables...

you DO NOT have signal degradation via HDMI cable over 3 feet.... 30 feet, perhaps (even then, you just buy 24awg cable instead of 28), but for 3ft, 6ft or 10ft HDMI cables, these, MONOPRICE, or any other bargain HDMI cable will do just fine. You don't deal with the analog issues of component cables with the 1's and 0's of digital.

My entire entertainment setup uses monoprice cables and wire. These cables and switch will be a welcome addition to my bedroom setup.

From Olevia's web site... shows all is 1.3 compliant, and remote control seems to be an option as there ARE buttons on the bottom right side... to the right of the I am awestruck by its beauty graphics there. ;)

3 to 1 HDMI Switch
With Olevia’s 3 x 1 HDMI™ Switcher, simultaneously connect up to three high-definition multiple resolution video sources such as HDTV Cable or Satellite Receivers, game consoles, or HD-DVD and Blu-Ray DVD players. Other Sources, including computers with HDMI video cards and SD-DVD players can also be used. The switcher routes both high-definition video up to 1080p, plus multi-channel digital audio. The single output sends the high-definition audio/video signals to any high-definition display (e.g. LCD, LCoS™, etc.). Switching is easily accomplished by the infrared (IR) remote provided with the unit. If integrating the switcher with an Olevia LCD, the universal remote controls both the TV and the HDMI switcher.
