I really wish my TV did that, I'm so tired of getting up and switching to HDMI2. Lets trade?

Terribly boring explanation coming:

Some model TVs, for the sake of simplicity because of a technologically incoherent society (my dad is a prime example of that in fact), are designed to automatically switch to the HDMI port if it becomes active while the TV is on. Seeing as the only ports on a TV that require power to be recognized are the HDMI/DVI ports, it makes sense.

So no magic or mysticism going on, just technology being designed to be smart because human society is largely dumb.


(And now I run for spoiling the fun discussion of this thread )

I wish my TV did this. It does the opposite - I turn anything on and it switches to a completely random input. I think it has dyslexia.

I could really do with a TV like this, I lose the remote everytime I need it.

I have a TV that switches to different input to without me getting up. It came with a little magic box called a remote.
