Are you running it self powered? If so, you might need to use a DC adapter.

Also, the "auto detect" function on those boxes, especially cheap ones, is usually kind of wonky, so if it has a manual switching option, use the switch/button.

FWIW, I'd recommend checking out Monoprice, they have a huge selection of HDMI switchers, good prices, good return policies.
