Smart HDMI Switch?
My main TV only has 2 HDMI ports, so I'm in the market for a smart HDMI switch that will work well with neeo.
I see a few switches in the device list, but pretty much all of them are marked as stupid devices, for reasons I'm not totally sure of.
Has anyone had luck with a good HDMI switch that will work well with neeo? Are there any on the market that would work but aren't in the database yet? I'd rather not purchase something only to find out it doesn't work well..
Many thanks for your message! The following supported HDMI switches are supporting discrete Power and Input commands:
Accell UltraAV 4x8
Accell UltraAV 4x2
Accell UltraAV 4x1
IO Gear GHDSW4K4
IO Gear GHDSW3
IO Gear GHSW8241
IO Gear GWHDMS52MB
IO Gear GHDMIS3
IO Gear GHSW8141
IO Gear GHSW8181
HD Anywhere mHub 4K (4x4) MHUB4K431
Zektor MAS 7.1
Zektor HDMI 5
ZettaGuard 4K x 2K 3 Port 3 x 1 HDMI Switch with PIP (ZW310)
ZettaGuard 4K x 2K 4 Port 4 x 1 HDMI Switch with PIP (ZW410)
The following devices do not have discrete power commands, but are marked as "Always on", therefore no power command is sent and no stupid screen shown:

Also, you can just tell me which device you would like to buy and I'll check if we can add it and if it's stupid.
Hope this helps!
Kimberly Static my favorite switch is the Monoprice 8x1

it it is listed as a dumb device for NEEO but since it is always on that won’t matter. It works great with NEEO. It also has 8 hdmi inputs so that really helps.
We have this exact device at office and have pretty good contacts to this company. In other words, it's very well tested.
Andy That didn’t seem to count for much here: https://planet.neeo.com/t/63k7b0 - unresolved after 3 months.
Jamie Moore Nice to see someone else with an HDAnywhere MHUB 4K431 on Planet NEEO. Do you have the latest Alexa-enabled model?
There may have been a misunderstanding. It's the opposite. We are in contact with the company since a while now. That's why we have such a device at office, added the codes, tested it and even improved it with adding additional commands and macros that the original remote does not support. We are very interest in using NEEO with the devices from HDAnywhere.
Andy I’m fully aware of the history between NEEO and HDAnywhere, that the two companies are now closer than ever, and that the new business relationship between the two companies compels synergy between their respective products. This is precisely why it makes no sense for the topic I’ve referenced here to have so little engagement from NEEO staff.
I have every confidence in your personal commitment and aptitude, and your work rate really does deserve recognition. Unfortunately, I can’t say the same for everybody else from NEEO, as it’s just not evident.
Andy The reason it's labelled "3+1" is because there are 3 HDBaseT outputs and 1 HDMI output.
If you look at page 11 of the supplied mhub-431u-manual-05122017.pdf document, you'll see how the Brain might be connected directly to the MHUB 4K431 or MHUB 431U. This is why I also enquired about connecting the Brain to the MHUB's HDMI Output port to provide for control using HDMI CEC.
Hi Everyone, great to see how the community can progress an issue to being solved. Nice work! Cyan Sea you make a valid point, but if you consider that a single brain + MHUB can potentially be used to control 4/8 separate AV zones, that is saving the cost of 3 ($600) or 7 ($1400) additional brains potentially in a whole-home AV project. NEEO+MHUB users will be able to just buy additional remotes for zones where they want a remote in-situ. This is why the partnership has the potential to be so complimentary in our particular product category. Thanks for your interest!
Dear all, I'm looking for a True 4K HDMI switch and before to buy, can you please let me know if the model GHSW8441 or the GHSW8481 are Neeo Remote device compatible ? Thank you very much for your prompt reply.
If you have another model True 4K @60Hz that I'm looking for, I would be grateful.
