I have a five-port automatic HDMI switch that I ordered from a Chinese seller on eBay several years ago, and it worked really well for some time. However, I started having issues with my PS3 while connected to the switch several months ago, while my new PS4 won't work with it at all. The PS3 will display video, but the picture randomly garbles and the audio cuts extremely often. The PS4 doesn't work at all; it causes the box to flash between all the input lights and won't display anything.
My Wii U, Xbox 360, and PC all work flawlessly with the switch, and I've tried different cables between both the PS3/4 and the switch, as well as the switch and my TV. From what I can tell by searching around, it seems to be caused by the PS3/4's HDCP requirements not being met by the switch, so I doubt there is a solution for this.
Would anybody happen to have any tips on getting the PS3 and PS4 to play nicely with a switch, or failing that, know of an HDMI switch that will work for the PS3 and PS4? (I just don't want to spend a fortune on one, hence why I ordered this Chinese one in the first place.)
Listed below is the equipment in use:
TV: Samsung UN32EH4000 32" LED
Switch: "5T(0/O)1 SWITCH" 5-port HDMI switch
Thank you in advance!
