    Do they work with Directv boxes? I know they don't with some cable boxes and I want to make sure before looking for one.

    I don't think a switch would do what I need. I'm trying to feed two TV's at the same time. I need the option of being able to watch both at once. I was trying to decide on an HDMI splitter or to just hook up one TV via component.

    And it's not powered? Can't find anything about a power source on your link. I gave up on non-powered HDMI switches a long time ago. Perhaps they've improved?

    You can use a matrix switch.

    You're right Rich I installed them some time ago and they have a bright blue light to indicate which side is selected. Made me think of them as powered. Working well for me though.
