Panel Description
The EX-1UTP-IR-50-POH features Power-over-HDBaseT
technology, that enables the transmitter to draw 12v
power from a mains supply and pass the current along
the length of a single Cat5e/6 cable along with the video,
audio and control signals to power the receiver - no
power access is necessary at the display location for
ease of installation and connection; meaning no additional
power adaptors required and improved energy efficiency.

Introduction
The WyreStorm EX-1UTP-IR-50 and EX-1UTP-IR50-POH extender models feature Class B HDBaseT
technology for an even more affordable HDBaseT
extender solution over shorter distances up to
50m/164ft.
Designed for smaller projects that may not require the
feature set of full HDBaseT yet still benefit from the
signal stability and functions offered by this powerful
technology, including distribution of full 1080p HD
video, HD audio and bidirectional IR, with the PoH
model including remote power passed through a single
Cat5e/6 cable from the transmitter to power the display

2 Connect the IR TX jack to the IR TX port on the EX1UTP-IR-50 / EX-1UTP-IR-50-POH Transmitter.
For bidirectional control of display from Transmitter
location, if using a conventional remote control handset,
connect an IR RX from IR RX port of the Transmitter,
ensuring a clear line of sight between the IR RX eye and
the handset being used to control.
4
Connect the IR RX to the IR RX port on the EX1UTP-IR-50-POH Receiver. Using the adhesive backing,
affix the IR RX eye to the display, ensuring there is a clear
line-of-sight with the remote control handset in the room.
5
For bidirectional control, connect an IR TX to the IR
TX port of the Receiver. Place the IR TX eye directly over
the infrared receiving area of the display, securing with
the adhesive backing. Location of the IR TX eye on the
display device may need to be adjusted later to achieve
best IR performance.
ATTENTION We strongly recommend using supplied
mounting brackets to secure Transmitter & Receiver
baluns. Sudden movement of these devices could
lead to loss of picture/sound if connections become
loose or strained, resulting in unnecessary service
call-backs.
6
Connect the Transmitter & Receiver baluns with a
good quality, well terminated and tested Cat5e/6/7 cable
with RJ45 connectors wired to the 568B standard at both
ends. Ensure all connectors are pushed securely to each
port and supported by the connector strain relief clip to
prevent them from becoming loose.
ATTENTION The quality of cable and RJ45
termination is essential for successful distribution
of video, audio, control and power from Transmitter
to Receiver. Poor cable and terminations lead to
intermittent performance and longer install times.
7 Finally, add the provided power supplies to the
Transmitter and connect to the mains:
EX-1UTP-IR-50: 5VDC
EX-1UTP-IR-50-POH: 12VDC
NOTE EX-1UTP-IR-50-POH: 12v powers the
transmitter and carries power along the length
of the cable to power the display Reciver so no
additional power is required at the display location.
Technical Support: support@wyrestorm.com US: +1 866 677 0053 EU: +44 (0) 1793 230 343
NOTE A 5v power input is included on the
Receiver for optional use should power issues be
encountered at the Transmitter location.
9.
EDID & Distance Setting
Distribution of HD signals through devices requires
mutual communication or ‘handshake’ between source
and display. If there is any disparity between the two,
successful transmission becomes problematic.
EX-1UTP-IR-50 / EX-1UTP-IR-50-POH extender
sets comes equipped with EDID management on the
Transmitter to encourage communication between INPUT
and OUTPUT devices and Distance SETTINGS on the
Receiver to toggle Long Cable mode ON/OFF should the
length of the cable run impact transmission quality.
If compatibility or transmission issues arise during
installation, check the settings on your connected devices
and adjust the DIP settings as required.
ATTENTION Changes to DIP settings become
effective upon powering ON baluns. Changes to
settings should be made with all devices OFF, ideally
with all power cables and HDMI leads and UTP
cables removed to guard against electrostatic build
up that may damage your system.
DO NOT HOTSWAP your cables when changing DIP
SETTINGS.

TROUBLESHOOTING
10.
Troubleshooting
Generally, the majority of HD distribution installation
issues are either caused by minor connection
errors, communication problems between devices,
or when the transmission of high signal bandwidth
is attempted using insufficient cable. Should you
encounter any technical difficulties when installing
and configuring the matrix, we are confident
solutions can be found by working through the
following troubleshooting checklist before seeking
alternative technical support.
No picture or poor quality picture
1) Power – are your HDBaseT transmitter and receiver
baluns powered at both ends?
HDBaseT transmitters and receivers each require their
own 5v power sources to operate.
HDBaseT PoH-enabled transmitters require their own 12v
power supply, while PoH display receivers typically do not
need to be locally powered. However, if power issues
from the transmitter location are experienced, a 5v power
source can be used at the display receiver location.
Are all sources definitely powered and firmly connected?
2) If possible, always use test equipment prior to
installation and to troubleshoot any problems.
Test Monitor
Part Number
TTMONITOR
Signal Generator
Part Number
10
TTSIgnal
3) Distance – Is your cable too long for the signal to be
transmitted effectively?
HDBaseT allows transmission of 1080p various distances
from 50m/164ft, 70m/230ft, and 100m/328ft so make
sure you cable distance matches your requirements,
model of extender, and is well within the maximum
transmission distance of the signal.
Note: If you are approaching the limits of the transmission
capabilities, you will need to use an additional WyreStorm
Extender set for the signal to transmit effectively.
4) Cable joins? Joins in your cable run can impact on
signal strength, resulting in reduced transmission that
may manifest itself in poor picture quality or a complete
lack of picture
.
5) Signal Reduction – Are you using stranded patch
leads as interconnects between patch panels or
wall outlets? Such use reduces signal strength – we
recommend solid core straight through connections to be
used wherever possible.
6) Resolution – If you reduce the resolution of the
source, do you get a picture? If so, this suggests a
discrepancy between source and display resolution or
a bandwidth capacity issue with your cable. Check that
your inputs and outputs share the same resolution and
that the signal is being successfully transmitted along
your cable run.
7) Correct connection – It may seem obvious but
double check all UTP, HDMI, power and IR cables are
connected to the correct ports.
Note: Even a fraction off can be the difference between
a perfect picture and a blank screen. Double check all
connections are firmly made in the correct ports.
9) Cable wired to 568B standard? Is your cable wired
and terminated correctly and are those terminations
connected to the correct ports?
10) Electrical interference – HDBaseT is less
susceptible to interference compared to regular
transmissions but the location of cables and devices
should be considered - could any form of interference
be generated? If so, attempt to remove the source of
electrical interference or move the cable run to decrease
the effects of the interference.
11) Do you get a picture if you connect the source
directly to the display? If not then the problem could lie
with the input or output device rather than the means of
distribution i.e. the cable or matrix itself.
Technical Support: support@wyrestorm.com US: +1 866 677 0053 EU: +44 (0) 1793 230 343
No sound or poor quality audio
13) Picture snow/HD ‘noise’ – represents a poorly
established signal that may be caused by poor quality
terminations or excessive cable lengths. Try swapping the
display adaptors from a location you know is functioning
properly or swapping the outputs of the matrix switch
used.
If the problem remains on the same screen this may be
caused by a connection problem between matrix and
display – turn off all equipment and swap the signal
carrying cables at both ends to ascertain if the cable or
termination is at fault.
Note: If you experience problems when an AV receiver is
used, the cause is usually the settings of the AVR itself.
Refer to the AVR manufacturer’s guidelines on the correct
settings to use for your requirements.
14) Blu-ray: Deep Colour – make sure Deep Colour is
turned on in your Blu-ray settings and displays.
Note: Occasionally with some sources, the device
settings allow the specification of audio output through
a TV or an HDMI port. If using an AV receiver, check the
HDMI output option is selected.
15) Blu-ray: Resolution – if a reduction of resolution to
720/1080i produces an image, cable issues such as
interference, patch panels, wall outlets, stranded cable
use or excessive cable length are likely restricting
transmission of a full 1080p signal.
16) Blu-ray: 3D – is the equipment used 3D enabled/
compatible? Is a 3D disc being played in a 3D enabled
Bluray player or through a compatible amplifier?
17) Colour distortion – a pink or green screen indicates
an incompatibility between colour spacing formats – the
commonly used RGB or YUV used by older displays.
Some sources allow switching between RGB and YUV
which may solve any colour problems. If not, try changing
the HDMI cable between the source and the matrix to rule
out defective cabling.
Audio is transmitted within the video signal – there
is no separate audio track – so generally a problem
with sound will be accompanied by a problem with
picture. However, if technical issues with audio are
experienced, the cause is typically communication
between sources, displays and/or AV receiver
settings.
1) If using an AV receiver, check your source input
assignment – do you have specific speaker sets or zones
enabled? Some AV receivers allow individual speaker
selections assigned to specific zones in the set up so
check the speakers used are fully connected to the
amplifier and correctly assigned within the system set up.
2) Consistency of audio output between devices – Is
there any discrepancy between the audio output of the
source, the audio or zonal settings of the AV receiver and
the speaker configuration used needed for successful
audio replication? If you are outputting 5.1, make sure all
devices connected are also outputting 5.1
3) Do all the local sources work through the AV
receiver?
Check the operation of each source individually.
Bandwidth
1) Check you are using the correct IR magic eyes/cables,
connected to the correct ports of each Transmitter and
Receiver device at locations: IR TX (small/round eye) connected to device IR window and enable control of
device. IR RX (larger/rectangular eye) - positioned in clear
line of sight with the remote control handset used in the
room.
IR
1) Check you are using emitters at the IR TX
transmitter end and receivers at the IR RX receiver
end – are they connected to the correct ports on the
matrix and display receiver.
2) Is the IR eye correctly positioned on the source?
Fix the IR eye directly over the infrared sensor of the
source and attach using the adhesive backing.
Note: Locate the infrared source sensor by using a

TROUBLESHOOTING
12) HDMI lead condition and quality – HDMI cables
and connectors are delicate and can be damaged much
easier than component or coax cable. Furthermore,
lead quality varies dramatically, particularly in lower price
brackets. Swap your HDMI or VGA leads and check
operation – damage to or quality of your leads could be
the problem. If in doubt, swap them over. Always take
care inserting and extracting your cables from ports so as
not to damage the connectors or ports.
FAQ’S
flashlight to find s small sensor within the facia of the
source display. If necessary, secure the IR eye over the
sensor with a small amount of contact adhesive.
3) Is your remote powered and sending a signal?
Note: IR is invisible to the naked eye, so use a digital
camera/ phone camera to check the remote signal – point
the camera at the remote control when pressing a button.
You should see the remote transmittion diode flashing to
indicate a signal being sent. Replace batteries if flashing is
not seen on the digital camera screen.
4) IR dropout issues can be due to exterior influences
emitting infrared radiation that can interrupt IR signals.
Ensure IR TX and IR RX eyes are away from the following
causes of IR interference.
• Direct sunlight
• Halogen lighting
• Plasma screens
5) UTP Termination Issues - swap cables over at
both transmitter and receiver ends to see if control is
established. If so, a possible re-termination of the cable
could remedy the problem.
6) Are you using WyreStorm IR TX, IR RX and IR Link
cables? The use of third party products/magic eyes may
not be compatible. Always use WyreStorm components
included with your purchase or check compatibility of third
party control systems with your WyreStorm dealer.
7) If problems persist, swap out the IR TX / IR RX,
transmitters and receivers to rule out faults with the units
themselves. Use IR TX and IR RX cables/eyes you know
are fully operational to test working condition.
8) If connected to a matrix switcher, reactivate the IR
callback function on the matrix and swap IR ports on the
matrix to rule out a fault with the device connection ports.
9) Should IR remain unresponsive, turn off and disconnect
all cables and reconnect zones one at a time to assess
if one location in particular is the problem. If so, run new
cables directly to the display – if this fixes the problem, it
is likely that electromagnetic interference /damage to the
cable somewhere along the run is causing the IR signal
to drop out. Investigate and remove EM interference from
the run or replace damaged UTP cable.

FAQ’s
5e or 6?
While our equipment is tested and graded to Cat 5e
cable standard; tests have shown that better results
are achieved when using Cat6 cable. The lower gauge,
thicker copper cores ensure better signal transfer.
Newly installed cabling should always conform to Part P
Regulation and BS 7671 (17th Edition), and should be
terminated to 568B standard
Can I use a single Cat 5e cable?
Although conventional transmission is considered to be
two Cat 5e cables, it is possible to send the signal down
a single cable if necessary. All of our pro-matrix switches
and UTP splitters support single UTP mode, however in
this mode IR control of sources and matrix switching is
not possible. However using HDBaseT transmission; all
of the twin cable features are supported with the added
benefit of Ethernet and RS232 control.
How far can the signal travel?
Under perfect transmission conditions our HD receivers
will operate at 30, 50 or 100m (@1080p) depending on
the model used. Perfect conditions mean no electrical
interference, straight cable runs with no bends or kinks
and no patch panels or wall outlets. If some of the above
are factors in your installation then signal strength and
bandwidth can be compromised. If a cable run is reaching
the upper limit of the receivers’ capabilities, then the
signal can be boosted by way of an extender set (Rx TX)
or by simply using an in-line repeater. Our transmission
signals can be repeated up to 5 times (250m) using
a conventional TMDS signal or 7 times (700m) using
HDBaseT technology.
What about 3D?
All of our matrix switches and most of our extender
products will pass-through a 3D Blu-ray signal. The 30m
and Coax extender sets do not support frame sequential
3D (Blu-ray), but will still pass-through interlaced stereoscopic 3D (Satellite etc.)
How do I control the sources?
Most of our HDMI distribution products support some
kind of IR pass-through from point-to-point extender sets
to pro and HDBaseT matrices. Most of the range now
supports wideband IR meaning it is compatible with any
IR device available on the market. Our Pro and HDBaseT
matrix range (Cat 5e) has IR pass-through from each of
the outputs and has discrete IR outputs at the switch end,
meaning you can have multiple identical sources yet the

Do I need power at the TV end?
Yes. Our HD display adaptors require a 5v power supply
at the TV end to operate. It’s important that these are
powered locally and do not receive remote power from
the rack as there can be issues resulting from voltage
drop along the length of cable. Our new USB power
cables overcome the problem of having a second mains
outlet behind the TV. These useful leads draw the 5v from
the USB socket on the TV to power the receiver, this also
means that the receiver is only powered when the TV is
on making the system more environmentally friendly.
Are WyreStorm products compatible with
HDMI 1.4?
HDMI 1.4 refers to a list of ‘features’ that a device is
capable of supporting, including Ethernet channel, return
audio channel, 3D etc. Due to the continuously evolving
nature of the technology, HDMI Licensing LLC have now
decided to simplify terminology by testing and referring to
cable in terms of STANDARD or HIGH-SPEED rather than
in generations 1.3, 1.4 etc.
• STANDARD (or “category 1”) HDMI cables perform
at speeds of 75Mhz or up to 6.75Gbps, which is the
equivalent to a 720p/1080i signal.
• All WyreStorm equipment support HIGH-SPEED (or
“category 2”) HDMI cables that have been tested to
perform at speeds of 340Mhz or up to 10.2Gbps, which
is the highest bandwidth currently utilised over an HDMI
cable and can successfully handle 1080p signals including
those at increased color depths and/or increased refresh
rates from the Source. High-Speed cables are also able
to accommodate higher resolution displays, such as
WQXGA cinema monitors (resolution of 2560 x 1600).
What about screens with different
resolution capabilities?
When sending a signal point to point a TV will
communicate it’s capabilities to the source, then the
source will output a suitable signal that compatible (i.e.
1080p Stereo audio). If you were to use a matrix switch
with three 1080p screens and one 1080i screen, the
resultant image would be 1080i across all screens. The
matrix switches do not scale per output but instead
negotiate with the source a signal that all screens are
capable of supporting.
How do WyreStorm devices handle HDCP?
HDCP (High Definition Copyright Protection) is a feature
built in to HDMI devices to prevent theft of or illegal
distribution of HD content. Unlike competing products,
WyreStorm devices are legal and comply with HDCP
regulations. They do this by assigning a “key” to every
display connected to the switch. HDCP “keys” are
assigned to a display when connected to a HDMI device
normally. This doesn’t change when connected to a
switch; it just assigns more of them.
I can get 1080i but not 1080p at a TV
location
Firstly ensure that both the source is outputting 1080p
and that the TV is Full HD 1080p screen. If this is the
case then the receiver may need setting up for long cable
mode using the DIP switches. This useful feature uses an
alternative Equalisation method to re-sync the signal over
longer distances. (feature available on selected models)
I cannot get a signal out from my A/V
receiver along a Cat 5e extender set
Check to ensure that the A/V Receiver isn’t adding CEC
(HDMI Control Protocol) to the outgoing signal, this can
sometimes have an effect on the HDMI signal.
