hdmi switch/splitter

lp0889 12 22 April 6, 2016 at 11:17 AM
Is anyone using or does anyone know of an HDMI peripheral that will allow me to run a MacBook Pro and a Xbox360 or AppleTv to a monitor? I want to be able to switch back and forth as necessary without switching HDMI inputs manually. I'm reading way too much on Amazon haven't come to a conclusion. Thoughts?

You would want an auto-sensing HDMI switch. There are plenty of different makes. Personally, I found most of them to be junk in this regard esp. if you have many inputs and leave multiple sources on simultaneously and just prefer to hit the remote and switch inputs manually, but that is me.

Just to follow up. I've been using the urlhasbeenblocked splitter in the link and it's worked wonderfully to go between my MBP and X360.
