So, for Christmas I got myself a very nice Apple TV2, which I love. As we still own a pretty old Plasma TV set which features only 2 HDMI inputs, I had to get a HDMI switch to connect all of our gear. Without really paying attention, I chose a Philips 4-port automatic HDMI switch.
It worked very well for two weeks now – until this evening when it just went black and never came back. The power indicator LED doesn’t even come on anymore. Of course I tried it with everything disconnected and on various power plugs. It’s DEAD. I can surely have it replaced on warranty, but …
This put into the context of my other big Philips failure, makes me definitely now say that I will NEVER, EVER buy any of this cheap-ass Philips bullshit anymore. EVER!
