Grt solution for multiple analog inputs

By JP Verified Purchaser from NY on 11/08/2007


Lacks Functionality, Insufficient Instructions, Poor Remote


Improves Performance, Highly Compatible, Easy To Use

How long have you owned it:

A Month Or Less

Best Uses:

Home Movies

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I needed a solution to marry multiple analog video sources to a single HDMI input on an LCD TV and this did the trick at a very reasonable price. Upscaling looks great for HD and DVD content - SD analog channels are a bit grainy but perhaps that can be adjusted. Instructions in the box are not sufficient if you want to try and tweak every setting but info is available on the website.

Pretty Good

By BigRedDog Verified Purchaser from Chicago, IL on 08/10/2007

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Product works pretty well. Be warned, if you use it with the Gefen HDMI Matrix 4x4 Switch, you will need to open the Matrix and flip some switches... refer to Gefen forums. Otherwise works pretty well. Product does not have pass-through color/brightness/tint/etc. settings. The defaults settings are pretty bad... so you will have to do some adjustments. Gefen could certainly make the defaults better, and/or offer a pass-through mode. There is no direct switch for each input, so you have to "loop" through, which is also annoying. Lastly, if you accidently set the output resolution to something your monitor doesn't support... you are forced to loop through all the possible outputs before you can see anything - this can take a while. Frankly, it is more of an issue than it should be because there is a dedicated button to switch the output resolution right next to the input switch - so you will do this by accident more often than you might think - lol. My assumption is the remote was not meant to be a long term remote, but is just provided so you can get the IR codes and use your own personal programmable remote. But then, why don't they have dedicate input codes ??? argh... Otherwise, upscales SDV 480i component to 1080i (which I use - it supports 1080p), nicely. The switch works, but I'd buy a dedicated switch if you really want a switch. Overall, a good product, that works as advertised. Could be slightly better, could make some easy improvements. Recommend it if this is what you need.
