General Information
The Model 1176 High Definition Cat 5 Matrix Router is a companion product to the Model 1166* High Definition Component Video AutoSelector™. It provides outputs to six Model 9878 Wallplates. Each Wallplate
is able to display any one of the six inputs of the Model 1166 at any time. Up to six Model 1176s may be
stacked with its host 1166, providing outputs for 6, 12, 18 or more Wallplates.
The Model 1176 is especially well suited for residential use, and professional venues, such as clubs and
restaurants, can benefit by using Model 1176 to send selectable video and/or audio to remote locations. In applications where all displays carry the same content, the Model 1170 High Definition Cat 5 MultiDriver™ Expander drives multiple Wallplates with the same program content as the 1166 main component video output.
Models 1170 and 1176 may be mixed in one system when some Wallplates are to have individually selectable
video and some are to have the same display content as the 1166 main output.

Installation
These instructions address the Model 1176, which is always used with either a Model 1156 or 1166 High
Definition Component Video AutoSelector™ as the head end and one or more Model 9878 Cat 5 HDTV Connection Plates (Wallplates) downstream. Refer to the Model 1166 instruction manual for complete directions
for installing this product.
You may wish to consult with a qualified custom electronics installer if you are inexperienced with DVI,
HDMI/HDCP, component video connections and compatibility. If you are installing 1170 or 1176, you should
be familiar with Cat 5 cable termination tools and techniques.
Pre-Setup
Many setup steps can be performed ahead of time using the Model 1166PC Setup Application. If the setups
were done using the Setup Application, plug the Flash Card containing the setup file into the memory slot
in the upper right corner in the back of the Model 1166. Temporarily apply power, go to the SETUP menu,
choose SAVE/LOAD FILE, and follow the instructions on the screen.
Infrared Capability
To activate infrared remote control of input sources, each Model 9878 Wallplate must have an infrared
receiver plugged into its IR Remote jack. Then, a Model 1105 Infrared Remote Control can be used at each
Wallplate location to select its input sources. Wallplate inputs can also be selected from the Model 1166,
whether or not IR receivers have been provided at the Wallplates.
The Model 1176 can also accept other brands of IR remote signals (through Wallplate IR ports) and repeat
them through the Model 1166 IR Output port. For example, by acquiring Model 1166 control codes, a learning remote can be used to control which source is playing at a particular Wallplate as well as control the
operation of the selected source. The Model 1166 IR Output port must be connected to an infrared distribution
system if other brands of IR remotes are to be extended through the Wallplates.
If the infrared system is to allow Wallplates selection of multiple sources of the same brand and model, add a
Model 1108 IR Router to the Model 1166 IR output. See the Model 1166 Instructions for details.
Operation
The Model 1176 is the switching center for Model 9878 Wallplates, which serve as the connection points for
video systems remotely fed from a main home theater system. At each Wallplate equipped with an infrared
receiver, you can select one of up to six audio/video sources connected to the main system, using a Model
1105 infrared remote control.
If a Model 1105 Infrared Remote Control has been provided, change the input source at any Wallplate by
pressing the predetermined number of the source, from 1 to 6, on the Model 1105.
If another brand of infrared remote control has been provided, it may be used to control local system components such as a television, satellite or DVD player or, if properly programmed, to select input sources from the
main system and control the functions of those sources. Ask your installer which option applies to you and for
specific instructions on how to use the infrared remote controls at Wallplate locations.

1176 Matrix Router Connections
Multiple Wallplates may be connected to a Model 1166 with Model 1176 Matrix Routers. A single 1176 has
a capacity of six Wallplates. IR signals sent over Cat 5 through the 1176 are then sent through the 1166 and
retransmitted on the IR output jack. IR signals from the 1105 (or other enabled remotes) are interpreted by the
1176 and affect only the output of the Wallplate originating the IR. If the system has multiple sources sharing
the same IR code, a Model 1108 Multi-source IR Router should be used.

A combination of 1176s and 1170s may be used with an 1166 to provide multiple Wallplate outputs. The 1166
responds to the 1105 IR signals sent over the Cat 5 run back to the 1176, whereas IR signals sent over Cat 5
and through to the 1170 are then sent through the 1166 and retransmitted on the IR output jack. 1105 IR signals from Wallplates connected through the 1170 do not control switching.
