What do I need to look for in an HDMI switch that will enable my Mini-DisplayPort video signal to reach my projector?

I've just successfully connected the Mini-DisplayPort > DVI adapter > HDMI directly to the projector. I also tested an HDCP-crippled video through iTunes, and it didn't complain to me about the display not being HDCP-enabled, so that's a load off my mind.
However, when I pass the HDMI through my extremely generic 4-port switch from Monoprice.com, I get nothing but a blank blue screen through the projector lamp. The laptop screen blinks gray for a second as if it were attempting to make a connection, but gives up.
Is it an HDMI version thing, do you think? What kind of specifics should I be looking for in a new switch?
Or is it maybe not the switch at all?
