Is there an HDMI switcher that will auto switch with two or more "always ON" devices? My 360 and PS/3 have some kind of output that make the device appear to always be on. So I have to manually switch between them.

Does anyone have or heard of a switch smart enough to work with these "always on" devices?

I have a PS3, 360 and Wii (using the Wii2HDMI adapter) connected using this switch here:

Auto-switching works just fine.

Any good AV receiver will do this. I'm guessing you want something cheaper though (they start at around $200).

As for just a switch, something like this will work.
