Using DirecTV HR24 and 3rd Gen AppleTV with HDMI (auto) Switch
Posted 22 April 2012 - 06:28 PM
What i do not know is if both HR24 and AppleTV actively drive their HDMI outputs even when "off" or "sleeping"?
Any tips on how to solve this would be greatly apprecaited.

I don't have my HR24 on a switch but I do have a 3 way HDMI switch on AppleTV (2nd) and 2 DVD players. Each switches correctly on power on/off. I'm sure the HR24 would work the same.
I'm actually surprised the $11 switch (free shipping) works as well as it did. It even included 3-6' HDMI cables! I should have bought 2!

But that could just be this switch. It was advertised as needing a power brick for auto switch but it works fine without power. Bonus!
