DVDO Quick6 HDMI Switcher Review from Home Theater Review

DVDO's Quick6 is an HDMI switcher that's loaded with goodies designed to add newfangled functionality to old-fangled AV systems. Of course, the Quick6's first function is to give you the necessary ports to incorporate more HDMI-equipped sources into your system, from a cable/satellite receiver to a Blu-ray player to a gaming console to a streaming media player. The box sports six HDMI 1.4a inputs, as well as two HDMI outputs that can be set up in Mirror mode (to send the same signal to two displays simultaneously) or AVR mode (to split the video and audio).
