Front Panel Operation
Creating a Tie
Creating a tie in the low resolution video group
N When creating video and audio ties in the low resolution
video group, audio must be redirected (tied to a different,
but corresponding, output than the video) because there are
only audio outputs 1 through 6. In this case, the audio is
tied to an output in the computer video/audio group.
• If the video is tied to output 7, the audio is tied to
output 1.
• If the video is tied to output 8, the audio is tied to
output 2.
• If the video is tied to output 9, the audio is tied to
output 3.
• If the video is tied to output 10, the audio is tied to
output 4.
• If the video is tied to output 11, the audio is tied to
output 5.
• If the video is tied to output 12, the audio is tied to
output 6.
N If you select an input in the low resolution video input
group (inputs 9 through 14), you can only select outputs
in the low resolution video output group (outputs 7
through 12). The switcher automatically redirects the
audio. This restriction applies to tying and untying.

Remote Control
Selected SIS Commands
The switchers have Simple Instruction Set (SIS ) commands that
you can use for operation and configuration. You can run these
commands from a PC connected to any of the switcher’s three
serial ports or the Ethernet port. See l, m, and o, on pages 2-5,
for connection information.
™
Establishing a network (Ethernet) connection
Establish a network connection as follows:
1.
Open a TCP socket to port 23 using the switcher’s IP
address.
N The factory default IP address is 192.168.254.254.
The switcher responds with a copyright message including
the date, the name of the product, the firmware version,
the part number, and the current date/time.
N 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.
If the password is accepted, the switcher responds with
Login User or Login Administrator.
If the password is not accepted, the Password prompt
reappears.
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. See the
Configure port timeout SIS commands on page 4-10.
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, the number of
connections should stay low and unnecessary open sockets
should be closed.
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 3. See
the Set verbose mode command on page 4-10. In verbose
mode 3, the Telnet socket reports changes in messages that
resemble SIS command responses.
Host-to-switcher instructions
The switcher accepts SIS commands 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.
N The table that begins on the next page is a partial list
of SIS commands. For a complete listing, refer to the
MPX Plus 866 A User's Manual.
N 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.

N • Video ties cannot be made between the computer video group and the low resolution video group.
• Program audio ties can only be made to the computer/audio output group (outputs 1 through 6).
• Mixing audio inputs into the output audio using SIS commands requires a complex command. Refer to the MPX Plus 866 A User's
Manual.
• Video and audio ties between the low resolution video input group and the low resolution video outputs group are always made with the
program audio redirected. In such an operation, the switcher automatically ties the audio to an output in the computer/audio outputs group
(outputs 1 through 6) as follows:
 If the video is tied to output 10, the audio is tied to output 4.
 If the video is tied to output 7, the audio is tied to output 1.
 If the video is tied to output 8, the audio is tied to output 2.
 If the video is tied to output 11, the audio is tied to output 5.
 If the video is tied to output 9, the audio is tied to output 3.
 If the video is tied to output 12, the audio is tied to output 6.
•Commands can be entered back-to-back in a string, with no spaces. For example: 1*1!02*2&02*04%4*6$.
•The matrix switchers support 1-, 2-, and 3-digit numeric entries (1*1!, 02*02&, or 003*003%).
N The & tie command for RGB and the % tie command for video can be used interchangeably, but you cannot switch between groups.

Additional description
Several useful Windows®-based programs are available on the
Extron Software Products CD-ROM that is included with the
switcher, including the DSP Configurator program and the
Matrix Switchers Control Program. These programs are also
available on the Extron Web site, www.extron.com.
MPX Plus 866 A • Remote Control
Refer also to the MPX Plus 866 A User’s Manual at www.extron.com.
The DSP Configurator program is required for full operation of
most of the switcher's DSP functions and to save partial presets.
It also provides some limited control of the switcher's non-DSP
functions. Refer to the MPX Plus, 866 A User's Manual and the
program Help file for more information.
The Matrix Switchers Control Program is another way to
operate the switcher's more basic, non-DSP, functions.
Run either program on a PC connected to either of the
switcher’s serial ports or the Ethernet port. See l, m, and o,
on pages 2-5, for connection information. The program must be
installed on a Windows-based computer and cannot be run from
the CD.
N For details on operating the programs, refer to the
MPX Plus 866 A User's Manual, chapter 5, “Matrix
Software”.
