The Gefen ex-tend-it 2x1 HD Digital Audio Switcher (EXT-HD-241A) enables effortless HDTV source switching using a single high definition display. A simple and reliable solution,it links any two HDTV sources (such as HD DVD players and satellite set tops) to one HDTV display. It completely eliminates the need to disconnect and 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 EXT-HD-241A 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.

How the EXT-HD-241A works:

Simply connect your 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 and connected, you simply select which source you want to view.
