Lowest price I've seen. I'm not interested in the subscription, just want a nice HDMI switcher / universal remote.

To simplify this device, it is a 4k HDMI Switcher with universal remote. It can change inputs on TV as well as a receiver via infrared. With a subscription, it also gives you search access across many different platforms such as Netflix, Hulu, ect....
The remote is slick but not backlit.

I have had this device for some time and like it. I have to be honest though, I rarely use the search feature that now costs $129. For $19.99 it is a very good 4K HDR switcher and universal remote. It works great with the Xbox One and the Apple TV 4K. The remote is also a big upgrade over the terrible one the Apple TV has.

I did have issues using the PS4 Pro with this device. I would lose picture for several seconds in the middle of a game. Never had that issue with the Xbox.

It is steal for $19.99, but I would recommend trying the search feature before paying for it. The built in search features for things like the Roku, Apple TV, or Android TV are probably all you need and are free.

Not 4K but for the price it's hard to beat. I wonder what the input lag would be if I used it with an avr that upscales


I stand corrected. It is 4K, has hdr. 129 for lifetime service tho. Would it be better to get the new version bundle for 144 that includes lifetime service?

Would this be good to use simply as extra HDMI inputs for a tv? Or can I find a product for that purpose for cheaper? I don't really want another remote to have to use in my living room though but this price is tempting...

Thanks op. This is a cheap 4K hdmi switch that supports atmos and for the price compared to others it's very slick! You don't have to pay monthly to use the hdmi switching from what the review state!

So is there a way to cancel the subscription on this thing and just use it for basic device controls such as switching between Roku and Cable TV? I don't need the search functionality of it and just want basic switching and functionality without a monthly fee. Thanks in advance!

Got this on previous deal for $50 with lifetime sub.
Was excited for the search feature since it linked to PLEX. Found that it didnt work well.
Now, I just have my Roku connected directly to my receiver but still use Caava integrated with Alexa for turning my TV on/off via voice command.

would voice commands for input switching via alexa work w/o sub?

Does Control Center work without a Service Plan?
You can still use the remote manually to switch sources, search apps and navigate on screen and other basic remote control functions.

Why do I need a Service Plan?
Any Control Center requires a service plan to our hosted services to experience the full suite of Caavo features:

Voice commands: Tune to a channel, switch sources, say what you want to watch, set a sleep timer, turn on/off and other remote control features

Watch functionality: Editorial recommendations, For Your Consideration, Crowd Surfing, Caavo Cache, Content guides and the ability to create and store Lists.

Universal Search: Access to content libraries that allow you to search across all your linked content including YouTube videos
Still give it a quick read if you time or buy now and read later, return to Bestbuy if not valuable to you, but I heard Best buy charges restocking charges to some products like cell phones, cameras, but doubt they will charge restocking fees on this.
