HDMI Switch not supported?
Can't find an entry for my HDMI switch: "BYTECC HMSW401CK 4K2K Fast Switch with Audio". The only 4x1 switch I find listed is a Monoprice switch, but it doesn't appear to be compatible.
What HDMI 4x1 or 8x1 switches are supported? I may want to upgrade anyway since I'm out of inputs already.
We can add that device, our device driver team will let you know once that has been added to our database.
We already support many HDMI switches, maybe Andy can recommend some, or other users here on Planet NEEO. You can also check out what you can get locally and then ask here before buying it if we support it. Generally, we can also add these very quickly if they allow control over IR.
I actually just got around to testing out this new device entry, and I can report that none of the input commands actually switch the device.
In addition, the device is not a 'stupid' device. While it does have a physical switch for power on the front, there is also an IR power control that turns off the switch. The power light stays on, but all the input lights turn off. I can't speak for the parasitic power usage of the switch when 'off' via the IR remote, but I don't think that should be your concern. The fact is it has a power command and the 'stupid' screen should go away (and die a horrible death, but that's an opinion I'll continue on a different thread). :-)
Thanks! The input change commands all seem to work, albeit input 4 was a little finicky for some reason. Maybe it was just my device placement.
The power command is not doing anything, however. My expectation is that it would turn off all inputs, and no selection light would be on. This is the behavior of that button with the manufacturers remote. However, I treat this device as always on, and I don't know that turning it off has any effect on power usage. Most likely, it would just make it take longer to start up, so I'm fine with power commands not being a part of my recipes!
