    Can anyone out there point me in the direction of a 4K (3840 x 2160) HDMI switcher please, that actually works ? Tried several from Amazon, some quoting 4K, but none will pass 4K from each input. Just need 2 in, one out, to switch between a 4K PC (Alienware) and a 4K Satellite tuner, into a 4K TV. Tried several, as above, with various HDMI cables but no luck, so far. Many thanks.

    Your sources likely require support for 2160p at 50/60Hz plus HDCP 2.2.

    Many '4K' Switch will only support 2160p at 30Hz with HDCP 1.4.

    Our UHD41-ARC is one option to consider - UHD41-ARC – The Media Factory

    Sorted this now. I managed to get one to pass two 4K inputs successfully. Probably against forum rules, so I won't post a link to it, but it's small, needs no external power supply, and it's on Amazon. I had to try several different HDMI leads to get it to work, tho, but it does.
