The Sabrent ST-HTMI will only auto-switch when there's one active line, which means it doesn't auto-switch with my setup since I leave the ATV and TiVo on all the time.
However, before it I had a Kinivo 501BN. It does auto-switch no matter how many ports are active. It's a nice unit and worked okay, but occasionally it would get confused and not switch properly between already active ports.
If you want to hide the switch and turn most of your equipment on and off, the Kinivo would be a good choice. But I like the directness of the Sabrent...sent a signal and it switches to the port with out any fussiness. Plus it has an on/off power toggle with the Kinivo lacked, not that either one uses much power.
Both devices are listed in my Harmony One device listings.
The Sabrent's lights are blue and white, the white matching the white light of the ATV. The Kinivo's are red and green, and BRIGHT...nice at christmas time, but otherwise a bit distracting.
