Without knowing your whole setup and why your using a switch in the first place it's hard to make any other suggestions.
I've got a PS3 and Directv Genie going into a 3 to 1 HDMI switch. The switch is like this one ... http://www.amazon.co...rds=hdmi switch ... except mine has a 5V adapter to keep it powered.
The switch then goes into an HDMI wall plate. That wall plate is connected to a 35 foot BlueRigger HDMI cable that then connects to another wall plate. That wall plate then connects to the tv.
I've used switches in the past, and had no problem (until the Genie and Genie Mini came along). The point of the switch is so that if I'm watching tv (through the Genie) and decide to turn the PS3 on, the switch will AUTOMATICALLY change the input to the PS3 (and this DOES work right now). Then, when I'm done with the PS3, when powering off, the switch should AUTOMATICALLY switch back to the Genie. However, this does not happen because of issues with the Genie. So I have to MANUALLY switch back to the Genie.
By the way, I have a similar setup for another tv, but instead of a Genie and PS3, a Genie Mini and blue ray player are hooked up. Same issue as the other switch with not switching back to the Mini.
So, everything in the setup works perfectly as it should, except the switches will not automatically choose the Genie or Genie mini, even when they are the only inputs powered on.
While the Genie is never really off, when is on standby, all of its outputs are off. So an automatic switch should detect when the Genie is "off" a Genie mini is actually off rather then standby
If you know of an HDMI switch that this is true for, that you KNOW automatically switches back to the Genie or Genie Mini, please tell me where I can find that switch. The ones I have, which I provided a link for above, do not automatically switch to them. But, I was told no switch will ever automatically switch to either box. From my testing, I find that to be accurate. But, I would love to be wrong.
