Introduction
The ASP-CATX1RS HDMI over Single CAT6 Extender with RS-232, IR, and Auto EDID learning
boosts up your video/audio transmission distance up to 60m (200ft) in HDTV 1080i format, 40m
(130ft) in HDTV 1080p format,(24 bit) and 20m (65ft) in HDTV 1080p with 36-bit color depth.
ASP-CATX1RS also supports the most advanced 3D video format complaint with HDMI 3D
specification and therefore guarantees the highest 3D video compatibility on the market. With only
one cost effective Cat.5/5e/6 cable, users can readily extend HDTV sources from DVD players,
Blu-ray Disc player, PS3, PC, and any other kinds of sources compliant with TMDS to distant
display monitors including HDMI or DVI enabled TV sets or LCD PC monitors. With the advanced
design for the latest HDMI technology, deep color video, DTS-HD or Dolby TrueHD audio, and
HDCP supports and compatibility are all further insured. This flexibility makes HDCP compliant
DVD players or PS3 transmit utmost high quality video and audio with a greater distance at the
minimal cost, when integrating several components apart. In addition, ASP-CATX1RS is also
equipped with bi-directional IR pass-through path. This bonus feature allows users to boost IR
control distance up to 100m (330 ft) and makes IR control possible through only single Cat.5/5e/6
cable including HDMI signals.
The ASP-CATX1RS includes two units: transmitting unit ASP-CATX1RS-TX and receiving unit
ASP-CATX1RS-RX. The transmitting unit is used to capture the input HDMI / DVI signals with IR
control packets and carry the signals via one cost effective Cat.5/5e/6 cable. The receiving unit is
responsible for equalizing the transmitted HDMI signal and reconstructing IR signals. The
transmission distance between the sending and receiving units can be up to 60m (200ft) at HD
720p or 1080i; or 40m (130ft) at Full HD 1080p. With an 8-level equalization rotary control on the
receiving unit, users can adjust the equalization strength to the received HDMI signals
accordingly, and therefore optimize the transmission distance between source and destination.

3. Connect IR Blaster/Receiver to both TX and RX units and or RS-232 connections.
4. Connect a Cat-5/5e/6 cable between the transmitting and receiving units.
5. Make sure this Cat-5/5e/6 cable is tightly connected and not loose.
6. Plug in 5V DC power supply unit to the power jack of the receiving unit ASP-CATX1RS-RX.
7. Plug in 5V DC power supply unit to the power jack of the transmitting unit ASP-CATX1RS-TX.
8. If you see flickering or blinking image on the display, please adjust the rotary control switch to
improve the cable skew. 0 stands for the strongest HDMI signal level for longest possible
transmission length while 7 stands for the weakest HDMI signal level for short transmission
length. Please adjust the signal level from 7 to 0 and stop turning the rotary switch whenever
the audio/video is playing normally. Inappropriate signal level setting may cause overpowering
issue that would shorten the product life significantly!

Notice
1. All HDMI over CAT5 transmission distances are measured using Belden Cat-5e 125MHz LAN cable and
ASTRODESIGN Video Signal Generator VG-859C. The transmission distance is defined as the distance between the
transmitting unit (TX) and the receiving unit (RX).
2. 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 results show solid LAN cables (usually in bulk cable [300m/1000ft] style) can transmit signals a lot
longer than stranded LAN cables (usually in patch cord style). Shielded STP cables are better suited than unshielded
UTP cables. A solid UTP CAT5e cable shows longer transmission range than stranded STP CAT6 cable. For long
transmission applications, solid UTP cables are the only viable choice.
3. EIA/TIA-568-B termination (T568B) for LAN cables is recommended for better performance.
4. To reduce the interference among the unshielded twisted pairs of wires in UTP cable, one can use shielded STP cables
to improve EMI problems, which is worsen in long transmission.
5. Because the quality of the Cat-5/5e/6 cables has the major effect on how long the transmission limit can achieve and
how good is the received picture quality, the actual transmission range is subject to one’s choice of Cat-5/5e/6 cables.
For desired resolutions greater than 1080i or 1280x1024, a Cat-6 cable is recommended.
6. 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.
