I only have one HDMI socket on my TV so I bought a three way HDMI hub thought that would solve the problem.Boughr tHREE HDMI leads one for the dvd player one for the set top box and one for my media player ran a lead from each unit to the input socket on the hub and a lead from the output socket on the hub to the TVs HDMI socket but when I press the button on the hub the light comes on and then goes off again it never stays on.I have two hubs and it happens with both of them.I havejust unplugged everything and re-connected everything but still the same.Any help please

It could be a problem with one of your devices or a cable.

Try disconnecting 2 of the devices and then using the switch, if it works OK, disconnect that and connect another one , same for the third one.

If all OK individually, connect 2 of them and try again, If OK, repeat with other pairs until either you get a fault or it runs with 2 devices.

Now try again with all 3, if you still get the problem, I would suspect that you are losing signal strength through the adapter, which is causing the problem.
