including other units that may produce heat.
6. Only clean unit with a dry cloth.
7. Unplug unit during lightening storms, or
when not used for an extended period
of time. A surge protector is strongly
recommended.
8. Protect the power cord from being walked
on or pinched, particularly at the plugs.

CAUTION
HDMI is a very complex technology requiring continuous authentication of the signal and the same
video resolution and audio settings on all electronic equipment in the system. When there are multiple
sources and displays, the video resolution and audio setting on all connected units must be adjusted
to correspond with that of the display having the lowest video and audio capability.

FEATURES
The Vanco HDBTEX70 HDBaseT Extender with Bi-directional IR, RS-232, and PoE, extends
4K/60Hz Ultra High Definition video and audio signals with 4:2:0 chroma subsampling, at a
distance of up to 130ft/40m over a single shielded Cat6 cable. 1080p high definition video and
audio signals can be extended up to 230ft/70m over a single Cat5e/6 cable. Power over Ethernet
(PoE) Technology transmits power over Cat5e/6, allowing either the Transmitter or Receiver to
be powered without the use of a power supply. No EDID or EQ adjustments are necessary as
the units automatically adjust for compatibility and gain. In addition, RS-232 and bi-directional
IR pass-through allows for source and/or display control. For extending HDMI signals over a
single Cat6 with IR at a long distance, with Power over Ethernet, and maximum 4K and 1080p
extension, the HDBTEX70 is a great plug and play solution for connecting the latest components!

CONNECT AND OPERATE
1. Connect a source such as a Blu-Ray Player, game console, A/V Receiver, Cable or Satellite Receiver, etc.
to the HDMI input on the Transmitting unit.
2. Connect a display such as an HDTV or HD Projector to the HDMI output on the Receiving unit.
3. Connect a single Category 5e/6/7 to the UTP output of the Transmitting unit, and the other end to the UTP
input of the Receiving unit.
4. For power, plug in either the Transmitting unit or Receiving unit with the included power supply, opposite
unit will not have to be plugged in as it features Power over Ethernet (PoE).
5. Power on each device in the same sequence (receiver and transmitter will already be powered when either
unit is plugged in.)

IR PASS THROUGH
The bi-directional IR system allows you to control the source that is connected to the extender unit, from the display; or the display from the source, not simultaneously. There
are two important things to note when setting up the IR system:
1. The IR Receiver (IR RX) is always what you point your remote at to send an IR signal. This pigtail is placed
at the display for controlling the source; or at the source for controlling the display.
2. The IR Transmitter (IR TX) is what sends the IR signal to what you are intending to control, whether it’s
the source or the display. This pigtail is placed at the source; either pointed at the source, or placed on
the front panel of the source, see below for placement tips. Or placed at the display to control the display
from the source.

IR TRANSMITTER (TX)
To control the source: Plug IR Transmitter into IR OUT port of transmitter unit (HDBTEX70-TX); place transmitter in front of the IR eye of the source.
To control the display: Plug IR Transmitter into IR IN port of receiver unit (HDBTEX70RX); place transmitter in front of the IR eye of the display.
Note: Placement of the IR Transmitter is important and can result in the IR system not
working if improperly placed.
• First, locate the IR eye or window on the source
• If placing the IR transmitter right on the front panel of the source, do not stick right on
top of the IR eye or IR window. The IR signal cannot travel through the double-sided tape
on the Transmitter. Instead place the transmitter on either side, or on the top or bottom of the IR eye or window, with the tip of the transmitter facing the IR eye or window.
See below for illustration of where IR signal shoots from on IR Transmitter:

IR RECEIVER (RX)
To control the source: Plug IR Receiver into IR IN port of receiver unit (HDBTEX70RX); place receiver at or near display.
To control the display: Plug IR Receiver into IR OUT port of transmitter unit
(HDBTEX70-TX); place receiver in position where it is able to receive remote
signals.

NOTICE
1. Vanco HDMI and Cat5e/6 cables are strongly recommended for use with this product to ensure best
results.
2. Incorrect placement of IR Transmitter and Receiver may result in the failure of the IR extenders. Please
check carefully before plugging in the IR extender to the respective IR sockets.
3. The transmission length is largely affected by the type of Cat5e/6 cables utilized, the type of HDMI
sources, and the type of HDMI display. The testing result shows solid UTP cables (usually in the form of 300m
[1,000ft] bulk cables) can transmit a lot longer signals than stranded UTP cables (usually in the form of fixed
length patch cords). Shielded STP cables are better suited than unshielded UTP cables. A solid UTP Cat5e/6
cable shows longer transmission range than stranded STP Cat-6 cable. For long extension applications, use
solid UTP/STP category cables.
4. EIA/TIA-568-B termination (T568B) for Cat5e/6 cables is recommended for better performance
5. To reduce the interference among the unshielded twisted pairs of wires in Cat5e/6 cables, one can use
shielded STP cables to improve EMI problems, which worsens in long cable transmission.
6. The quality of Cat5e/6 cables can have a major effect on how long the transmission limit can achieve and
quality of picture, the actual transmission range is subject to the Cat5e/6 cable utilized. For the best results,
Cat6 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.

TROUBLE-SHOOTING
1. Best results are usually achieved when the source and display resolutions are the same. If resolutions
differ, the extenders will try to adjust the signal to match the resolution of the HDTV with the lowest
resolution. This will result in a picture with a lower resolution on the other HDTV sets.
2. If you do not get audio and video, access the “setup” menu on the TV to adjust the audio and video
settings. If the HDMI control circuit cannot establish a handshake, then there usually will be no audio or
video in addition to a blue or black screen with a statement similar to “this protocol not supported” or
“weak signal”.
3. If the above mentioned messages display, reset the receiver by disconnecting the power supply. You can
also disconnect all of the HDMI and power cables, wait 15 minutes for any voltages to decay and then
reconnect all of the cables.
4. If you are still encountering issues, attempt the “hot-plug” concept. With all of the HDMI cables
disconnected, turn on the source and plug in the HDMI cable into it’s output, then power up the Vanco
unit and plug the HDMI cable into it’s input, finally turn on the display and plug the HDMI cable from
the receiver into it. This activates all of the devices in corresponding order and results in a signal being
plugged into a device that is on and will attempt to connect the signal.
5. Most of the major source and display manufacturers employ a proprietary control channel to communicate
between devices from the same manufacturer (CEC). Sometimes this can interfere with the HDMI control
circuit or the authentication of the signal. Call the manufacturer if you experience this issue. Sometimes
a player, an audio/video receiver, or a cable/satellite box may not have the latest software update, usually
this can be downloaded from the manufacturer’s website.
6. If you have problems with the IR control circuit, make sure that the IR RX pigtail is plugged into extender
receiver and pointed at the display, and the IR TX pigtail is attached to the extender sender and pointed at
the source.
