However, like all electronic equipments, the HSW44C should be used with care. Please read and follow the safety instructions to protect yourself from possible injury and to minimize the risk of damage to the unit. • Follow all instructions and warnings marked on this unit. • Do not attempt to service this unit yourself, except where explained in this manual. • Provide proper ventilation and air circulation and do not use near water. • Keep objects that might damage the device and assure that the placement of this unit is on a stable surface. • Use only the power adapter and power cords and connection cables designed for this unit. • Do not use liquid or aerosol cleaners to clean this unit. Always unplug the power to the device before cleaning. NOTICE 1. If the DVI or HDMI device requires the EDID information, please use EDID Reader/Writer to retrieve and provide DVI/HDMI EDID information. 2. All HDMI over CAT5 transmission distances are measured using Belden 1583A CAT5e 125MHz LAN cable and ASTRODESIGN Video Signal Generator VG-859C. 3. The transmission length is largely affected by the type of LAN cables, the type of HDMI sources, and the type of HDMI display. The testing result shows solid LAN cables (usually in bulk cable 300m/1000ft form) can transmit a lot longer signals than stranded LAN cables (usually in patch cord form). Shielded STP cables are better suit than unshielded UTP cables. A solid UTP CAT5e cable shows longer transmission length than stranded STP CAT6 cable. For long extension users, solid LAN cables are your only choice. 4. EIA/TIA-568-B termination (T568B) for LAN cables is recommended for better performance. 5. To reduce the interference among the unshielded twisted pairs of wires in LAN cable, you can use shielded LAN cables to improve EMI problems, which is worsen in long transmission. 6. Because the quality of the LAN cables has the major effects in how long transmission distance will be made and how good is the received display, the actual transmission length is subject to your LAN cables. For resolution greater than 1080i or 1280x1024, a CAT6 cable 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. 8. The HSMR has been tested extensively and found that it doesn’t require external power supply. If in rare situation you find it cannot work with the HSW44C, please use any +5V power adapter to plug in the power jack and see if it can work. If not, please contact your technical support for further service. 9. Additional IR remote controls and IR blaster cables can be purchased as optional accessories to control the HDMI sources located separately.

If the RS-232 connection is not firmly established, you will see the online status is “Disconnect.” If so, please check the RS-232 connection until the online status becomes “Wait to Connect.” INTRODUCTION The HSW44C 4x4 HDMI Matrix Switch with CAT5 Output provides the most flexible and cost effective solution in the market to route high definition video sources plus multi-channel (up to 7.1-channel) digital audio from any of the four HDMI sources to the remote displays at the same time. Through low cost CAT5/5e/6 LAN cables, not only high quality video and audio can be transmitted to the display sites, but also users can switch among 4 HDMI sources using the push button or remote control. With single power design at the source site, each remote module is easily installed without power supply. Furthermore, the built-in IR extension function makes users at display site access the DVD player, PS3 or any HDMI equipped devices directly! 4x HDMI Source Two LAN cables PS3 HDMI cable HSMR 4x HDTV IR receiver 8.

If the HDTV shows video but without audio, please try to set audio mode to stereo. 2. Factory default of SW1-SW4: Pin#1-OFF [ ] & Pin#2- OFF [ ] for 1080p with stereo. 3. If you encounter any unsolved audio/video output problem during system installation, please turn any SW1-SW4 to Pin#1-OFF[ ] & Pin#1-ON[ ], for safe mode to enforce the most compatible 720p stereo output for system check. However, the safe mode cannot be initiated if your HDMI source is set to enforce 1080p output. In this case, please reconfigure your HDMI source to all resolution output for troubleshooting. 4. Bypass means the matrix will maintain playing the original format of HDMI signals in video and perhaps audio. By setting at this mode, the users may encounter compatibility issue among different kinds of HDMI sources and displays. If you cannot get the audio and/or video output normally at the system installation, please change the DIP switch setting to default mode or even safe mode to verify thefunctionality of the device. 5.
