HDMI Selector Switch

Here is my problem, I recently bought a Roku player and my TV only has 2 HDMI inputs and I have a Cable box, Blu-Ray player and now the Roku. Planning ahead for this I bought a HDMI selector switch on Amazon and $15. The product was advertised as an auto switch that would recognize the power change or signal change and switch itself. Since the Roku is apparently always on I hooked it up to the TV directly and then hooked the Blu-Ray and Cable box to the switch. Well the switch works when I select the different inputs right on the unit but does not automatically switch. This poses a problem since the switch is located behind the TV. There is also a high pitch buzz that appears to be coming from the unit or is feedback through the speakers, either way I had to disconnect it because it was giving me a headache.
I guess what I am looking for is if anyone has a suggestion for me as to where I can find a good quality selector switch that is automatic, I really want to keep my home theatre simple and if I add another remote that is going to drive my wife crazy and she will never use it.
Thank you in advance.
