Built-In Rx Edid
Structure:

The system support 4 sets Built-in Rx EDID, one is active and others are
for backup.
 The Active EDID will copy the EDID from backup EDID. (Go to "System
Setup" function)
 The system will copy the Sink EDID and built-in into Rx EDID to analysis
display information.
 RS-232 PC software programs can support Rx EDID contents.
RS-232 Connection
and Protocol:

Connection between the unit and remote controller with RS-232
modem
cable (No Wire Crossing).
Pin definition

RS-232 transmission formats:
Baud Rate=19200bps
Data Bit=8bits
Parity=None
Stop Bit=1bit
Flow Control=None

Command / Response codes of RS-232 transmission:
note 1: After computer sends command to the system, computer has to
wait for response from the system.
Then computer can send next command to the system.
If this system is under autorunning, RS-232 communications maybe fail.
note 2: To configure Autorun follows a sequence of commands --- ATNxxx
+ ATTxxx + ATPxxx + ATIxxx …
note 3: If this system is not on Pattern 47.Color Setting, respond CRR300,
CRG300, CRB300 or CRY300.
note 4: Procedure of setting RX EDID name string :
send "ERX00?" -> wait "ERX00?" response -> send name string (12 bytes) ->
wait "ERX004"
note 5: In the name string, the rest unused bytes (<12bytes) should be filled
with 0x00.
note 6: After ERX99? response, name string (12 bytes) is followed.
note 7: After ERD001 response, this system reads sink's EDID and transmits
them (datastream) to remote terminal. If this system reads sink's EDID fail,
the system sends '0xfe' and stop datastream.
This system supports 2-block EDID, datastream length=block0+block1=256
bytes
note 8: After ERS001 response, this system erases sink's EDID and fill with 'FF'.
After erase completely, the system response is ERS002
If erase fails, the system response is ERS003
note 9: After EWR001 response, this system will waits for EDID datastrem(256
bytes) from PC After receive datastream completely, the system writes
datastream to sink. If write successfully, the system responses EWR002,
otherwise EWR003
note 10: Procedure of setting custom string :
send "MOT001" -> wait "MOT001" response -> send custom string (12
bytes) -> wait "MOT002"
note 11: In the custom string, the rest unused bytes (<12bytes) should be
filled with 0x00. Custom string supports English language only.
note 12: After MOT999 response, custom string (12 bytes) is followed.
