The Gefen ex-tend-it 2x1 HD Switcher (EXT-HD-241) enables effortless HDTV source switching using a single high definition display. A simple and reliable solution, the EXT-HD-241 links any two HDTV sources (DVD players and satellite set tops) to one HDTV display. It completely eliminates the need to disconnect then reconnect multiple HDTV sources, saving time by providing a fundamental tool that brings it all together behind the scenes. When all three devices (the display plus the two sources) are connected to the 2x1 HD Switcher and powered on, you simply select which source you want to view on the display using the Switcher, the IR remote that comes with it, or any universal remote you program to work with the Switcher.
*The EXT-HD-241 will ONLY support digital video signals.
How the EXT-HD-241 works:
Simply connect the HDTV display to the Switcher's display output. Then connect both HDTV sources to the Switcher's inputs using the HDMI cables that come with the Switcher. Once the sources, the Switcher and the display are all powered on and connected, you simply select which source you want to view.
