How to Use HDMI Switch?


A high definition multimedia interface or HDMI switch is a device which is used to choose a source of video for the TV via the HDMI interface. HDMI switch would have three kinds of inputs of HDMI for the source components. When many TVs are used then there are HDMI switches with two or more outputs. The switch may be operated by remote control or automatically by priority. When an HDMI switch is turned on with the higher priority, those signals are directed to the TV. They are available in many types of inputs ranging from two to eight.

Put the HDMI switcher in a place where it is easily in reach of all components and the input you want to use and power outlet. The best place to hold it is on the middle shelf of your entertainment center so it has easy access to everything. Plug the power cable into the power switch.

Operate an HDMI cable from each device to one of the inputs on the HDMI switcher. To do, plug one end into the appropriate port in the side or back of the device. Each port has a button on the front associated with it.

Operate another HDMI cable from the switcher to the input on your TV, receiver or another input device. Never plug it into one of the parts. There will be a different port only for this purpose.

Switch on your input device and run through the input options until you get to the channel connected to the HDMI switcher. Then, push the button on the switcher that sits in front of the cable for the device you want to watch or listen to it.
