If the HDTV shows video but without audio, please try to set audio mode to stereo.
Factory default setting of [SW1]-[SW8] is pin 1 at OFF [] & pin 2 at OFF [] for 1080p and
surround sound audio.
If you encounter any unsolved audio/video output problem during system installation, please
turn any [SW1]-[SW8] to pin 1 at OFF [] & pin 2 at ON [] for safe mode to enforce the
most compatible 1080p 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.
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 the functionality of the device.
To learn the EDID of the HDMI display for respective HDMI source devices, please see the
[EDID Learning] section for more detail information.

EDID Learning
The EDID learning function is only necessary whenever you encounter any display connected to
the HDMI output port that cannot play audio and video properly. Because the HDMI source
devices and displays may have various level of capability in playing audio and video, the general
principle is that the source device will output the lowest standards in audio format and video
resolutions to be commonly acceptable among all HDMI displays. In this case, a 720p stereo
HDMI signal output would be probably the safest choice. Nevertheless, the user can force the
matrix to learn the EDID of the lowest capable HDMI display among others to make sure all
displays are capable to play the HDMI signals normally by performing the procedures stated
below.
SW1-SW8’s Pin 1 must be set to “ON” and left there for EDID Learning Mode.
Turning to “OFF” will return to factory defaults.

1. Push EDID button to enter EDID learning mode
2. Select one or multiple INPUTS 1-8 buttons that you want those input ports to learn
the EDID of the display from certain OUTPUT port. The input port is selected when
the LED is on. Push the INPUT button again if you want to cancel this input port to
learn EDID.
3. Select the HDMI display that you want the matrix to learn its EDID by push the
OUTPUT button connected to this display.
4. Press the EDID button to initiate the EDID learning sequence. If the sequence is
done successfully, the front panel will get back to normal operation mode. If the
sequence is failed, the LED of the chosen input ports will flash then please try again.

User Guide
Method 2: Manually connect HDMI displays to HDMI input ports
1. Power up the matrix. Connect the HDMI display that its EDID needs to be learned to any of
the HDMI INPUT1-INPUT8 port where your source device has trouble to show the picture
normally.
2. To learn the display’s EDID for source device connected to respective HDMI
INPUT1-INPUT8 port, pull both pins of respective DIP switch SW1-SW8 up-and-down to
stay at ON[]-ON[] and wait for about 5 seconds to complete the EDID learning process.
You DON’T NEED to pull up the DIP switch again unless you want to learn another display’s
EDID by pulling both DIP switch pin 1 & pin 2 of SW1-SW8 up-and-down one more time.
3. Repeat step1 & step2 if you want to learn the EDID of this HDMI display on any other HDMI
input ports that have same trouble playing the audio/video properly.
