HD-A3 Problem with HDMI Switcher

I just got this 3-way HDMI switcher from monoprice:


My Comcast HD cable box and my PS3 work great through it, but my Toshiba HD-A3 does not work. I just get a black screen. The signal works fine when going directly from the HD-A3 to the TV via HDMI. I tried plugging the HD-A3 in all 3 ports on the switcher, and tried all 3 HDMI cables. Nothing worked. Any ideas????

This scares me...just bought an HDMI switcher today for my PS3/360/DirecTV/HD-A2. From the same site.

I have the 2X1 switcher from Monoproce and my A3/A2s work just fine (two different TVs, both switchers bought 6 months apart from each other)

Wanna hear something weird? I left the HD-A3 on for a while and the screen saver kicked in. That screen saver DID display through the HDMI switcher, even though the HD DVDs, standard DVDs, and even the Setup menu would not. I am thoroughly confused.

Can anyone recommend a 3X1 HDM1 switcher that works with the HDA3? (and the PS3 too if you happen to have both)
