DGHDP1 - DigiSender® HD Pro - 1080p Powerline AV Sender System
Introduction
The DigiSender® HD Pro is the latest state-of-the-art AV sender system from AEI Security & Communications Ltd.
Making use of the most recent advancements in high definition media distribution technology the DigiSender®
HD Pro will allow you to transmit 1080p High Definition video around your home using your existing mains power
lines. This avoids the complexities of re-wiring your house or buying new AV equipment for each viewing room.
This system consists of a Transmitter and a Receiver that delivers H.264 High Definition video and high quality
audio from HD Satellite receivers, HD Set-Top boxes , Blu-Ray™ players and HD Games Consoles (etc.) to compatible HDTV displays located near mains power sockets in your home.
Setup is quick and easy. The source device (e.g. HD Satellite receiver in lounge) is connected to the transmitter
and the receiver is connected to the second HDTV (e.g. Bedroom TV), both via HDMI™.
The system also features Remote Relay, allowing you to use the source remote (e.g. HD Satellite remote control)
from the receiving location.
It is recommended that you read the Information & Safety section on page 27 - 29 before installing this product.

in standby mode.
• Source device is sending a video
format that is not supported by
the DigiSender® HD Pro.
• PLC (Power Line Communication) network cannot support
sufficient bandwidth or the network quality is not high enough.
This results in the suspension of
the video picture.
• The Receiver is continuously

Resolution
• Try the ‘Transmitter & Receiver Syncing’
procedure on page 17, to re-establish connections.
• If the above has not resolved the issue, try
the ‘PLC Grouping’ procedure on page 18
first and then ‘Transmitter & Receiver Syncing’ procedure on page 17.
• Ensure that the source device is turned on.
• Check to see if the source device is sending

• Check the Specifications on back page to
make sure that the format being delivered
by the source device is compatible with the
DigiSender® HD Pro system.
• This problem will usually resolve itself
within a minute or two.
• If this problem persists then it may be due
to a faulty mains power socket. Try connecting the DigiSender® HD Pro to another
mains power socket instead.
• If the power LED keeps flashing on and

• Make sure that the source device (e.g. HD Satellite receiver) is working correctly and is outputting video via the HDMI socket you are using to connect it to the DigiSender® Transmitter. It is recommended that you connect the source device directly to a TV to confirm correct operation.
• Make sure that the receiving TV is working correctly and that it is set to the correct HDMI channel.
If the video is still not being displayed on the receiving TV, then please proceed to step 2 below.
Step 2: Syncing and Resetting Procedure
The Syncing and Resetting procedure is the last step in troubleshooting your product and should only be attempted when all other measures have failed to resolve your problem.
The flowchart on page 24 will instruct you on how to proceed with this procedure.
Note: It is assumed that the source device (e.g. HD Satellite receiver), DigiSender® Transmitter, DigiSender® Receiver
and the receiving TV are all connected properly and turned on.
Note: It is highly recommended that you perform this procedure with both the DigiSender® Transmitter and Receiver
in the same vicinity, preferably attached to the same dual-socket mains power outlet.

Troubleshooting
Remote Relay Problems
If you have any difficulty operating your source equipment remote control in your second room please follow the
advice below:
• Ensure the IR Emitter is connected to the socket labelled ‘IR’ on the Transmitter.
• E nsure you are using the correct remote control in the second room. For instance, if you are trying to
control your Satellite box you will need to use the Satellite remote control.
• Ensure the IR Emitter is facing the IR sensor on your source equipment.
• Ensure that cable connecting the IR Emitter to the Transmitter is not running directly over or under your
source equipment. This is because most modern set top boxes have a hard drive built into them which
can put out a bit of Electromagnetic Interference, disrupting the IR signal as it travels along the cable.
• Move the IR Emitter further away from the source equipment.
• Move the Transmitter AND Receiver further away from other electrical devices.
• Try operating your source remote control closer to the Receiver.
• Replace the batteries in your source remote control.
Often, the easiest way to get your Remote Relay system working perfectly is to get someone to help you.
• H
ave the person helping you go to the Receiver and try to change the Satellite channel or pause the
Blu-Ray™ whilst pointing the source devices remote control at the front of the DigiSender® Receiver.
• While the person helping you is doing the above, you should be adjusting the position of the IR Emitter.
Try moving the IR Emitter slowly, from one side of the source device to the other, making sure to keep
the face of the IR Emitter pointed towards the front of your source device at all times.
• When you find the right spot for the IR Emitter the channel will change or the disc will pause and the
person helping you can let you know that you have the exact right spot for the IR Emitter.

Information & Safety
Important Product Information & Abnormal Operation
Important Product Information
Power Line Communication or Power Line Carrier (PLC), are systems for carrying data on a conductor also
used for electrical power transmission.
The Transmitter and Receiver units must be operating on the same AC power circuit for guaranteed performance.
This product may not perform efficiently if plugged into Power Strips (especially those with Surge Protection and
EMI / RFI Filtration) or Extension Cords. For best results it is recommended that you connect the units directly
to a mains power socket. In homes with multiple mains circuits installed, it is recommended that both units are
installed on the same circuit so that they can communicate effectively with each other.
Power sockets and electrical wiring must all be part of the same electrical system. Certain electrical conditions in
your home, such as wiring conditions and configuration, may affect the performance of this product.
Note: Interference from devices that emit electrical noise, such as vacuum cleaners, refrigerators, hair dryers, old
electric motors and poor quality mobile phone chargers for example, may adversely affect the performance of this
product. This product may have the possibility to interfere with devices such as lighting systems that have a dimmer switch, short wave radios, or other power line devices that do not follow the correct wiring standard.
Abnormal Operation
• It will take 30 to 40 seconds to establish a connection between the transmitter and receiver. If
there is no signal coming through to the receiver after this time, please try the Syncing the Transmitter & Receiver procedure on page 17 and refer to the troubleshooting section of this manual. If
you are unable to resolve your problem, please contact our support helpline on 0207 193 1413.
• If a unit is accidentally exposed to water or the case is damaged in any way, you should immediately turn the unit off at the mains and disconnect the plug. The unit should be replaced at
the next available opportunity, failure to do so could result in an electrical short or fire. If you are
uncertain of your situation, please call our support hotline on 0207 193 1413.
• If any smoke or odors emanate from the units, you should immediately turn the unit off at the
mains and disconnect the plug. Continuing to use this product in these conditions could cause a
fire or damage the product irreparably. Please call our support hotline on 0207 193 1413.
