Compatibility
The TP115-110 provides transmission of computer
video and audio signals over Twisted Pair-type
(CAT-5) cable when used together with an
ALTINEX Twisted Pair receiver, such as the
TP115-111. Stereo audio input is received via the
3.5 mm jack and is converted to mono prior to
transmission over the CAT-5 cable. The TP115-110
is lightweight, streamlined, and easy to use.
Signal types
This unit offers video equalization for up to 400 ft
(122 m) and the signal detect feature shows when
a signal is present.

The latest generation of Twisted Pair devices uses
an innovative, patented technology* developed by
ALTINEX. The new signal processing technology
allows transmitting and receiving fully equalized
computer video signals, stereo, and audio signals
over long distances. The maximum distance at full
UXGA resolution is 400 ft (122 m) between devices
and may reach up to 750 ft (230 m) at VGA
resolution.

OPERATION
Step 1. Determine the best location for the
TP115-110 and TP115-111. Where
possible, locate the TP115-110 as close
to the video source as possible and the
TP115-111 as close to the receiving
component as feasible.
7
The TP115-110 requires only one adjustment be
made for optimal performance. The adjustment is
video equalization for long cable lengths.
7.1 VIDEO EQUALIZATION
Video equalization is provided to fine-tune the
displayed image on the remote display.
Typically, the equalization will be set to near
minimum for short cable runs. Cable lengths up
to 400 ft (122 m) will require near maximum
equalization.
Step 2. Apply power to the TP115-110 using the
power adaptor provided. The Power LED
should be on and red.
Step 3. Connect the video source to the input of
the TP115-110 using a high-quality video
cable.
The equalization adjustment on the TP115-110
works together with the TP115-111 to provide
equalization for maximum cable lengths. For
example, for cable runs less than 50 ft (15 m),
both equalization settings may be set to near
minimum. Cable runs of 400 ft (122 m) will see
equalization settings at about the three-quarter
position.
Step 4. The Power LED should change from red
to green indicating a signal is present.
Step 5. Connect the audio input source to the
audio jack on the TP115-110.
Step 6. Run
a
CAT-5
cable
from
the
4TP OUTPUT of the TP115-110 to the
4TP INPUT on the TP115-111.
TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE
8
We have carefully tested and have found no
problems in the supplied TP115-110. However, we
would like to offer suggestions for the following:
NOTE: Ensure good signal transmission
by routing the cable avoiding any
sharp angles, creases, or bends.
8.1 NO DISPLAY
Step 7. Connect the TP115-111 video and audio
outputs to their receiving devices.
Cause 1:
The source has a problem.
NOTE: The L+, L- and GND outputs on
the TP115-111 terminal block
output contain the mono audio
output signal. The R+ and Rpins are not used.
Solution:
Check the source and make sure
there is a signal present and all
source connections are correct. If
the source is working and there is
still no display, see Cause 2.
Step 8. Apply power to the TP115-111 using the
power adaptor provided. The Power LED
should be on and red; green if a signal is
present.
Cause 2:
The path has a problem.
Solution:
Connect the transmitter directly to
the receiver using a short CAT-5
patch cable. If the image is good,
there is a problem with the cable.
Otherwise, see Cause 3.
Cause 3:
Cable connections are incorrect.
Solution:
Make sure the cables are properly
connected. Also, make sure that the
continuity and wiring are good. If
there is still no display present, see
Cause 4.
Step 9. The units are now operational.

SPECIAL APPLICATION
Cause 4:
Video equalization required.
ALTINEX POLICIES
Solution:
Adjust the VIDEO EQUALIZATION
on the TP115-110. Long cable runs
may require adjustment on both the
TP115-110 and TP115-111.
9.1 LIMITED WARRANTY/RETURN POLICIES
Please see the ALTINEX website at
www.altinex.com for details on warranty and
return policies.
In general, cable runs less then 50 ft
(15 m) require little or no video
equalization and should be set to
minimum. Cable runs up to 400 ft
(122 m) will require near maximum
equalization on both the transmitter
and receiver.
Cause 5:
The display has a problem.
Solution:
Make sure the display is powered
and is turned on. If there is still no
display, please call ALTINEX at
(714) 990-2300.

8.2 NO SOUND
Cause 1:
The source has a problem.
Solution:
Check the source and make sure
that there is a signal present and all
source connections are correct. If
the source is working and there is
still no sound, see Cause 2.
Cause 2:
The volume is too low.
Solution:
Increase the gain at the source
toward maximum. If there is still no
sound present, see Cause 3.
Cause 3:
Cable connections are incorrect.
Solution:
Make sure that cables are properly
connected. Also, make sure that the
continuity and wiring are good. If
there is still no sound, see Cause 4.
Cause 4:
The receiving
problem.
Solution:
Make sure the receiving device is
powered and is turned on. If there is
still no sound, please call ALTINEX
at (714) 990-2300.
