IOGEAR 2x HDMI switch
Despite evidence to the contrary, IOGEAR is claiming it has the world's "first" HDMI hub that automatically selects active input, eliminating the need for remote or hands-on control. Its 2x1 Automatic Switch does remain in the minority however, and enables two HDMI devices to share the same input on an HDTV set. Resolutions up to 1080p are supported, and LEDs on the front panel indicate which source is being used. The 2x1 is on sale today for $170.
