    Looks like this might be a good solution for me… I have an HP All-in-One Envy to which I want to connect my PS4 and Xbox. I have a Kinivo 501BN from another setup i used to have. I tried connecting the 2 HDMI cables from my consoles to 2 of the 4 ports on the switch and connected the output to my HP HDMI input port but my PC does not see the HDMI connection. I am wondering if there isn’t enough power in the switch to tell my HP there is a connection. Appreciate any advice.

    Your setup is really nice.

    What about image quality?

    Do hdmi splitters cause any input lag?



  5. Uncle Damfee on December 15, 2019 at 8:48 pm

    The volume remote next to the HDMI switch is wired…That’s why they have to say wireless. It’s not uncommon to see products having wired remotes..

    been looking around – but cannot seem to find. How does SOUND work??? What are the speakers connected to that allows sound from all these devices??



  7. Vinnie Sims on December 15, 2019 at 8:49 pm

    Simple and easy to use.



  8. Lord Abdul on December 15, 2019 at 8:49 pm

    so how do you stream on twitch with your face showing,i dont know how to stream with webcam on twitch while hdmi connected

    Will my free sync still work if I plugged a HDMI Splitter into my monitor? Because I have a switch and Xbox, and my Xbox one S supports free sync. But I’m not sure if I’m still gonna have free sync if I plug in a HDMI splitter. ( My monitor only has one HDMI)

    Hey I have the app but it won’t go to the app



  11. DiMosHigh on December 15, 2019 at 8:50 pm

    You have no idea how similar our setups are. I started following your channel about a year ago when I was building mine. I went to my 1st pax last year (pax east) so I was looking up pax vlogs and thats how I ran into your channel.

    Hello David, what if I want to record PS4, Switch and PC Gameplays?



  13. Freddy Torres on December 15, 2019 at 8:52 pm

    Does this work with the PS4 Pro? Also i noticed the brand in the video and the one you link in description are different, is there a reason for that? TIA



  14. Campwise05 on December 15, 2019 at 8:55 pm

    Nice video David, cool HDMI switch!



  15. Billy Shuig on December 15, 2019 at 8:57 pm

    I am a pc only person when I use a xbox controller thats a wired remotre when I plug it it with micro usb



  16. 3P3KVisuals on December 15, 2019 at 8:59 pm

    I’m watching this a year later, I think we have the same monitor. VP228? I’m now looking into a buying a 3×1 HDMI switch, but was worried about input lag. It arrives today, hopefully there’s no extra lag!



  17. cruiser122 S.D. on December 15, 2019 at 9:00 pm

    I love your videos. I learn about the coolest stuff.



  18. Gaming Dan on December 15, 2019 at 9:01 pm

    Hey David I need help on getting the switch on my iPhone app it just goes to website 😭



  19. Smitty Werbenjagermanjensen on December 15, 2019 at 9:01 pm

    Hi. If you turn one device off, for example the xbox while the Switch is on channel 1, does ist remain on the Channel or does it switch to the next input?



  20. Dazed in public on December 15, 2019 at 9:02 pm

    Can you switch to the tv ??



  21. Anthony Cruz on December 15, 2019 at 9:04 pm

    Can you connect the HDMI switcher to a HDMI splitter?



  22. Bonnie Lou Rivera on December 15, 2019 at 9:04 pm

  23. Rafael Sandoval on December 15, 2019 at 9:05 pm

    my set up is almost the same as this one lol



  24. AlphaMax on December 15, 2019 at 9:05 pm

    Yup I need to get a switch box. I also hate the ones that have the inputs on the front or the side it just looks ugly that way.



  25. Kyron Conrad Junus on December 15, 2019 at 9:10 pm

    hi mate, thanks for the video
    I’ve been looking a way to do this.
    Got a question for you though, switching those HDMI around, how about audio?
    does it also switch according to each HDMI?



  26. bnsf6951 on December 15, 2019 at 9:12 pm

    Will this work with 2 cameras.going to my lap top??



  27. Kevin Dagostino on December 15, 2019 at 9:12 pm

    Just curious why didn’t you make or a get a bigger gaming PC Screen. But this is cool



  28. karl olof on December 15, 2019 at 9:14 pm

    So i need a hdmi switch the



  29. MikeSki77 on December 15, 2019 at 9:14 pm

    David, do you have a video about your audio setup? Especially with switching between consoles has to be easier than what i’m doing.



  30. Lady Vavas hund on December 15, 2019 at 9:15 pm

    What happens if you have 2 inputs in use, say a pc and a console. Console is displayed. Then switch off the console. Dose it revert back to the pc automaticly?



  31. Liam Mcauley88 on December 15, 2019 at 9:17 pm

    There’s a lot better pc rigs out there you need a bigger monitor that’s just the start 😁



  32. ragnose1 on December 15, 2019 at 9:19 pm

    yeah uh… how about having the video stream go through the pc so i dont gotta use multiple headphones?



  33. kerosene on December 15, 2019 at 9:20 pm

    gamer boy problems……..



  34. Akudankka on December 15, 2019 at 9:20 pm

    How do you switch back to pc?



  35. Pancho_286s on December 15, 2019 at 9:23 pm

    I bought the HDMI Switch that you linked but now I am having trouble setting it up. All of the cables are connected but I’m still having problems having the screen popped up on my tv and/or monitor. You explained how to switch consoles easily but can you do a step by step video on how to connect everything correctly?



  36. Yate16 on December 15, 2019 at 9:27 pm

    What’s ur desk



  37. benjamin gomez on December 15, 2019 at 9:29 pm

    nice viedo but you said what you use to be able to play those cconsoles but you never said how you connect it or where



  38. redheadkingpin 27 on December 15, 2019 at 9:30 pm

    Dilly dilly philly insane Super Bowl champs awesome Super Bowl I’m at all to see my home team win



  39. OTG Honest on December 15, 2019 at 9:30 pm

    Does it reset the whole system when u switch to the new system? I’m trying to stream, and I only have one monitor. If I wanna use ps4 remote play on my pc while playing on my ps4 would that work



  40. michael on December 15, 2019 at 9:30 pm

    Is there a way to split my Xbox and PS4 (one at a time) to two screens? (Monitor and HDTV) but also use some type of switch to toggle through which I want to use at a time?



  41. Jasmine W. on December 15, 2019 at 9:30 pm

    Can I use the HDMI switch to connect my laptop and my nintendo switch without a capture card?



  42. Rythem Vidal on December 15, 2019 at 9:32 pm

    Biggest concern is input lag. Will you be able to test that and get an accurate answer?



  43. Eric A on December 15, 2019 at 9:33 pm

    So I am trying to use an hdmi switch for my ps4 and xbox one. I have both plugged into the switch and then the switch plugged into the el gato hd60, then another hdmi from the el gato to my monitor. However I get no visual on my monitor and el gato says it can not find a source. Any insight?



  44. Switch Kraft on December 15, 2019 at 9:33 pm

    Sweet vid. I gotta try and set up something like this is my setup!



  45. Damaris Estevez on December 15, 2019 at 9:33 pm

    Can you use the switch for tv also. Not working



  46. Rey Martinez on December 15, 2019 at 9:34 pm

    Love your setup!



  47. Samuel D'souza on December 15, 2019 at 9:35 pm

    can you use multiple switches on one hdmi



  48. TheMrfrodough on December 15, 2019 at 9:36 pm

    How does sound work? Especially considering most people won’t use the recording setup.



  49. Hindsight Reflections on December 15, 2019 at 9:36 pm

    What about the PC? Does that run directly through the Cathcart question



  50. WIDESPREAD GAMING on December 15, 2019 at 9:38 pm

    so can I use an elgato hds external, I’m only playing pc, and occasionally xbox on my stream. and I already own an elgato hds. I just haven’t incorporated it into my setup because I’m lacking the splitter.
