Introduction
The EX-G009 HDMI 1.3 over CAT5 Extender with IR Control Path boosts up your HDMI
transmission distance up to 60m (200ft) in HDTV 720p / 1080i format. With two low cost CAT-5/5e/6
LAN cables, users can readily extend HDTV sources from DVD players, Blu-ray Disc player, PS3, PC,
and any other kinds of sources compliant with TMDS to distant display monitors including HDMI
enabled TV sets, LCD PC monitors, or projectors. This cost effective flexibility makes HDCP compliant
DVD players or PS3 transmit high quality video and audio with a greater distance at the minimal cost,
when integrating several components apart. In addition, with the embedded infrared (IR) receiving and
emitting units to facilitate the control path, users can enjoy high quality audio/video and control the
HDMI sources from the remote site instantly.
The EX-G009 includes two units: EX-G009-TX as the transmitting unit and EX-G009-RX as the
receiving unit. The transmitting unit is used to transfer the HDMI/DVI and IR signals input and carry the
signals through two RJ-45 connectors over two low cost CAT-5/5e/6 LAN cables. The receiving unit is
responsible for equalizing transferred TMDS multimedia data and re-sending IR signals. The
transmission distance between the sending and receiving units can be up to 60m (200ft) under HD
resolution (720p or 1080i) or 40m (130ft) under Full HD resolution (1080p). With 8-level equalization
control on the receiving unit, users can adjust the equalization scale to the received TMDS signals,
and therefore optimize the transmission distance between source and destination.

Hardware Installation
1. Connect your HDMI / DVI source (such as a DVD player) to the transmitting unit EX-G009-TX.
2. Connect the IR transmitting cable to the transmitting unit EX-G009-TX, and make the IR emitter
directly point to the IR of HDMI source.
3. Connect your HDMI / DVI display (such as a LCD TV or plasma TV) to the receiving unit
EX-G009-RX.
4. Connect the IR receiving cable to the receiving unit EX-G009-RX, and make the IR receiver
directly point to the user.
5. Connect your LAN cables between the transmitting and receiving units.
6. Make sure your LAN cables are tightly connected and not loose.
7. Plug in 5V DC power cord to the power jack of the receiving unit EX-G009-RX.
8. If a flickering or a blinking image is shown on the display, please try to adjust the rotational
EQ control to improve the cable skew. 0 stands for the strongest EQ while 7 stands for the
weakest. Try adjusting the EQ from 7 to 0.

Notice
1. If the DVI or HDMI device requires the EDID information, please use EDID Reader/Writer to
retrieve and provide DVI/HDMI EDID information.
2. All HDMI over CAT5 transmission distances are measured using Belden 1583A CAT5e 125MHz
LAN cable and ASTRODESIGN Video Signal Generator VG-859C.
3. The transmission length is largely affected by the type of LAN cables, the type of HDMI sources,
and the type of HDMI display. The testing result shows solid LAN cables (usually in bulk cable
300m/1000ft form) can transmit a lot longer signals than stranded LAN cables (usually in patch
cord form). Shielded STP cables are better suit than unshielded UTP cables. A solid UTP CAT5e
cable shows longer transmission length than stranded STP CAT6 cable. For long extension users,
solid LAN cables are your only choice.
4. EIA/TIA-568-B termination (T568B) for LAN cables is recommended for better performance.
5. To reduce the interference among the unshielded twisted pairs of wires in LAN cable, you can use
shielded LAN cables to improve EMI problems, which is worsen in long transmission.
6. Because the quality of the LAN cables has the major effects in how long transmission distance will
be made and how good is the received display, the actual transmission length is subject to your
LAN cables. For resolution greater than 1080i or 1280x1024, a CAT6 cable is recommended.
7. If your HDMI display has multiple HDMI inputs, it is found that the first HDMI input [HDMI input #1]
generally can produce better transmission performance among all HDMI inputs.
