Yes, do not buy cheap. I had two which did not work until I found a Thor product which did.

If you have a Sky HD box then it is very important that whatever you get make sure it is capable of manual switching. The reason? Sky HD boxes give off a signal even when on standby so switching another device on will not (unless you are very lucky) work with auto switching.

whatever it costs it's still cheaper than a new TV.
