Please recommend a powered HDMI splitter with remote control
Feb 25, 2013

Wish to attach between Mac Mini, Roku Box and Comcast Cable Box, switch channels with remote to Panasonic Viera Plasma TV set.

Tried Portta PET0301S 3x1 HDMI Switcher Support 3D, two different units, it set up easily, the remote would switch between channels, BUT..it would constantly lose signal to TV or switch to Roku channel every 5 minutes or so...then I could click the channel with the little remote included, but this dismal action would only repeats itself within a few minutes at most...

Tried several Portta 3X1 Switchers, but both behaved the same, constantly dropping signal or switching to another channel...

The Portta 3X1 Switcher has a little input for 5 watts, but NO plug in, they say it'll be powered by the HDMI, but I'm wondering about that...

Read several on line forums, but some recommend a "powered" HDMI unit, please advise...
