DXP DVI Pro and DXP HDMI Series • Operation
Remote Control
This section describes selected SIS commands that pertain to system
setup. It also contains instructions for obtaining, installing, and
starting the Matrix Switchers Control Program and for accessing the
DXP HTML pages. The following topics are discussed:
•• Establishing a Network (Ethernet) Connection
•• SIS Commands
•• Installing and Starting the Matrix Switchers Control Program
•• Accessing the HTML Pages
Establishing a Network (Ethernet) Connection
You can send SIS commands over an Ethernet link (rear panel RJ-45
LAN port) or a serial connection (front panel Config port or rear panel
Remote RS232/RS422 port). The network connection procedure is
described below; for information about the serial connection, see the
DXP DVI Pro and DXP HDMI Series User Guide.
Establish a network connection as follows:
1. Open a TCP socket to port 23 using the switcher IP address.
NOTE:
The factory default IP address is 192.168.254.254.
The switcher responds with a message consisting of the copyright
date, the name of the product, firmware version, part number,
and the current date and time.
Example (with an Internet connection):
(c) Copyright 20nn, Extron Electronics DXP DVI-HDMI,
Vn.nn, 60-nnnn-01]
Ddd, DD Mmm YYYY HH:MM:SS]
NOTES: • If the switcher is not password-protected, the device is now
ready to accept SIS commands.
• If the switcher is password-protected, a password prompt
appears.
2. If the switcher is password-protected, enter the appropriate
password.
3. If the password is accepted, the switcher responds with Login
User or Login Administrator.
4. If the password is not accepted, the Password prompt reappears.

21
Connection Timeouts
The Ethernet link times out and disconnects after a designated
period of no communications. By default, this timeout value is set to
5 minutes but the value can be changed.
NOTE:
Extron recommends leaving the default timeout at
5 minutes and periodically issuing the Query (Q) command
to keep the connection active or disconnecting the socket
and reopening the connection when necessary.
Number of Connections
A switcher can have up to 200 simultaneous TCP connections,
including all HTTP sockets and Telnet connections. When the
connection limit is reached, the switcher accepts no new connections
until some have been closed. No error message or indication is given
that the connection limit has been reached. To maximize performance
of your switcher, keep the number of connections low and close
unnecessary open sockets.
Verbose Mode
Telnet connections to a switcher can be used to monitor for changes
that occur on the switcher, such as front panel operations and SIS
commands from other Telnet sockets or a serial port. For a Telnet
session to receive change notices from the switcher, the Telnet session
must be in verbose mode 1 or 3 (see the Set verbose mode command
in the Command and Response Table for SIS Commands).
SIS Commands
The switchers have SIS commands that you can use for operation and
configuration. You can issue these commands from a PC connected to
either of the DXP serial ports or the Ethernet port (see "Rear Panels
and Connections" in the "Setup" section for connection information).
Host-to-switcher Instructions
The switcher accepts SIS commands through the LAN port or through
either serial port. SIS commands consist of one or more characters per
command field. They do not require any special characters to begin or
end the command character sequence. Each switcher response to an
SIS command ends with a carriage return and a line feed (CR/LF = ]),
which signals the end of the response character string. A string is one
or more characters.

DXP DVI Pro and DXP HDMI Series • Remote Control
EDID (Extended Display Identification Data)
EDID is a communications protocol or instruction set for the
identification of display devices to computers using the DDC (Display
Data Channel) transmission standard. EDID information consists of
the resolution, refresh rate, and pixel clock information of a display
device.
You can apply an EDID to a selected input by selecting one of the
following categories of EDID files, shown in the EDID table on the
next page.
•• The EDID of the display connected to an output (numbers 1
through the number of outputs on your DXP)
•• One of 28 factory-loaded EDID files (numbers 9 through 36)
•• One of the four user-defined files, to which you have assigned
your own EDID values (numbers 37 through 40)
