    Maybe because it only supports HDMI1.4b ??


    Not sure, but as a wise man once said .. "Buy cheap - buy twice"

    I have a feeling that I may need a powered splitter, as both tablet and freeview box are possibly not (after any cable loss) putting out quite enough voltage/current to power the switch properly....

    I had one of these. worked fine for some devices but for others I had to switch manually.

    Could it be that the resolution of what you are attaching is not being recognised, is there some sort of auto setting on the tv, for example if the device feeds it 1080p but does not upscale 720p?

    What happens when you select manually?




    Features :

    Support HDMI 1.4b
    Supports Highest Video Resolution 1080P
    Support 250MHz/2.5Gbps per channel (7.5Gbps all channel) bandwidth.
    Support 12bit per channel (36bit all channel) deep color.
    Support uncompressed audio such as LPCM.
    Support compressed audio such as DTS Digital, Dolby Digital including DTS-HD and Dolby True HD.
    HDMI Switcher routes high definition video (in multiple resolutions up to 1080p) and digital audio from Selected source to display units.
    HDMI pass-through.
    Manual switching between three sources to one display.
    All inputs accommodate the connections of the high definition video sources simultaneously, compatible well for SKY-STB, PS3, Xbox 360 (Can not work with PS4)
    Output sends high definition audio/video signals to a high definition display.
    Input : 3 ports
    Output : 1 port
    (Notice: DOES NOT SUPPORT: SKY+ HD, VIRGIN BOX, DVD Players.)

    I've got an HDMI switch of the same design, although I paid more for it (maybe £10?), and it works fine with my Freeview box and my Freesat box.
    But it won't recognize my Amazon Fire box as being connected to it, so won't even manually switch to it.
    Almost certainly down to the power output from it.
