Introduction
Thin is the new thick.
As part of the WyreStorm Pro Plus range, the slim-line
RX-70-PP Display Receiver offers HDBaseT Class B
distribution when connected to a WyreStorm HDBaseT
transmission device such as matrix switcher, transmitter
or AMP-001-010 digital audio amplifier.
Supporting a feature set including 70m/230ft
transmissions of Full HD 1080p@60Hz video with 36bit
deep color, HD audio and discrete bidirectional IR control
IR, the RX-70-PP also features RS232 with switchable
selection for firmware updates or third party control
serial control, all along a single Cat5e/6 cable to display
devices. Pushing chassis design to the limit, the RX-70-PP offers
an incredibly low-profile for a greatly reduced form factor
behind the screen for even more convenience and ease of
installation at the display zone.
Featuring threaded bushings that allow use of both
standard and locking DC power plugs for improved
connection options, the RX-70-PP also includes LED
indication for power supply, signal status to show
established connection to display, transmission link and
HDCP confirmation to illustrate the presence of encryption
within a signal.
WyreStorm Pro Plus HDBaseT products offer flexibility
combined with an ease of use and cost-efficiency to
provide solutions where reliabile HD transmission and
control over distance is required whether in a residential or
commercial setting.

Initial Connection
1
Firmly connect an HDMI input (such as Blu-Ray, games console, satellite/cable, media server etc.) to a HDBaseT
transmission device (such as a WyreStorm HDBaseT transmitter, AMP-001-010 digital amplifier or Pro Plus matrix
solution.)
2
Connect a good quality, well terminated Cat5e/6 cable of no more than 70m/230ft in length between the UTP/
HDBaseT output of the transmission device to the HDBT IN of the RX-70-PP
Attention 70m/230ft is the maximum recommended transmission distance for this classification of
HDBaseT equipment and denotes perfect transmission conditions - including straight cable runs with no
electrical interference, bends, kinks, patch panels or wall outlets. If any of the above are a factor in your
installation, transmission range may be affected – take care to avoid where possible.
3
Connect the HDMI sink (LED /Plasma display / digital projector) to the HDMI OUT of the RX-70-PP receiver.
NOTE We strongly recommend using the supplied mounting brackets to secure the receiver. Any sudden movement of
devices can lead to loss of picture/sound if connections become loose or strained,
resulting in unnecessary service call backs.
4
If daisy-chaining receivers, repeat process for all RX-70-PP units installed from your transmission devices.
7iv.
IR/RS232 Control Connection
1
For two way control of connected sources and displays from either location, connect IR transmitters to the IR TX
ports of the HDBaseT Transmitter devices and RX-70-PP.
2
Insert IR receivers into IR RX ports of the HDBaseT Receiver devices and matrix.
3
If using an RS232-based control system, insert cables into the RS232 ports of devices to enable RS232 control.
4
Ensure IR TX transmitters are firmly attached over IR sensors of devices to be controlled.
NOTE If unsure of positioning, IR sensors can be located on devices by shining a flashlight onto the facia
of the device - the IR sensor should be identifiable as a small round sensor behind the panel. Consult your
device manufacturer handbook if difficulties are experienced.

Understanding RS232 Connection & Signals
RS-232C, EIA RS-232, or simply RS-232, refers to
the same standard defined by the Electronic Industries
Association in 1969 for serial communication.
DTE and DCE
DTE stands for Data Terminal Equipment. A computer
or control system is DTE and connects to Data
Communication Equipment, or DCE such as an Amp,
Matrix or Modem.
DTE equipment typically feature a Male Connector, while
DCE contains a Female Connector, although that is not
always true - a simple way to confirm is to measure Pin
3 and Pin 5 of a DB-9 Connector with a Volt Meter. If a
voltage of -3V to -15V is achieved, the device is DTE. If
the voltage is on Pin 2, then the device is DCE.
NOTE: The result for a DB-25 Connector is reversed

RS232 Connections
A straight-through cable should be used to connect a DTE (e.g. computer) to a DCE (e.g. Amp, Matrix or Modem), with
all signals from one side connected to the corresponding signals on the other side in a one-to-one basis.
A crossover (null-modem) cable can be used to connect two DTE directly, without a modem in between to cross
transmit and receive data signals between the two sides. There are numerous variations on how control signals are

RS232 Logic Waveform (8N1)
The graphic (p.8 bottom left) illustrates a typical RS232 logic waveform (Data format: 1 Start bit, 8 Data bits, No Parity,
1 Stop bit). The data transmission starts with a Start bit, followed by the data bits (LSB sent first and MSB sent last),
and ends with a “Stop” bit.
The voltage of Logic “1” (Mark) is between -3VDC to -15VDC, while the Logic “0” (Space) is between +3VDC to
+15VDC.
RS232 connects the Ground of 2 different devices together, which is the so-called “Unbalanced” connection. An
unbalanced connection is more susceptible to noise, and has a distance limitation of 15m/49ft.

Troubleshooting
Generally, the majority of HD distribution installation
issues are either caused by minor connection
errors, communication problems between devices,
or when the transmission of high signal bandwidth
is attempted using insufficient cable. Should you
encounter any technical difficulties when installing
and configuring the matrix, we are confident
solutions can be found by working through the
following troubleshooting checklist before seeking
alternative technical support.
No Picture or Poor Quality Picture
1) Power – is your HDBaseT transmission device and
RX-70-PP receiver powered with correct LED indication?
All units should have their own power source connected
ie. 12v for most 70m/230ft for HDBaseT devices – Please
use power supplies included.
Are all sources definitely powered and firmly connected?
2) If possible, always use test equipment prior to
installation and to troubleshoot any problems.
3) Check sink device supports HDCP, is switched to the
correct source inout mode and is compatible with the
receiver - if any issue is suspected, replace sink device
with another model.

WyreStorm Install
Test Kit
TT-HDMI-KIT
4) Distance – Is the cable too long for the signal to be
transmitted effectively? The HDBaseT classification used
within the transmitters and receivers allow transmission of
1080p up to 70m/230ft so make sure the cable distance
matches the project requirements and is well within the
maximum transmission distance of the signal.
Note: If approaching the limits of the transmission
capabilities, transmission should be extended by using
another extender set to ensure the signal reaches its
destination effectively.
5) Cable Joins – Joins in the cable run or RJ45
connectors can impact on signal strength, resulting in
reduced transmission that may manifest itself in incorrect
picture quality, picture dropping out or a complete lack of
picture
6) Cable Choice and Signal Reduction – Are stranded
patch leads being used as interconnects between patch
panels or wall outlets? CCA (Copper Clad aluminium)
Technical Support: support@wyrestorm.com US: +1 866 677 0053 EU: +44 (0) 1793 230 343
7) Correct connection – It may seem obvious but
double check all UTP, HDMI, power and IR cables are
connected to the correct ports.
Note: Even a fraction off can be the difference between
aperfect picture and a blank screen. Double check all
connections are firmly made in the correct ports.
8) Cable wired to 568B standard? Is the cable wired
and terminated correctly and are those terminations
connected to the correct ports? Incorrect wiring and
termination will result in unstable operation or a blank
screen.
9) Electrical interference – HDBaseT is less susceptible
to interference compared to regular transmissions but
the location of cables and devices should be considered
- could any form of interference be generated? If so,
attempt to remove the source of electrical interference
or move the cable run to decrease the effects of the
interference.
10) Is a picture achieved when connecting the
source directly to the display? If not then the problem
could lie with the input or output device rather than the
means of distribution i.e. the cable, receiver or matrix
itself.
11) HDMI lead condition and quality – HDMI cables
and connectors are delicate and can be damaged much
easier than component or coax cable. Furthermore,
lead quality varies dramatically, particularly in lower price
brackets. Swap HDMI leads and check operation –
damage to or quality of your leads could be the problem.
If in doubt, swap them over. Always take care inserting
and extracting your HDMI from matrix ports so as not to
damage the connectors or ports.
12) Picture speckles/HD ‘noise’ – represents a poorly
established signal that may be caused by poor quality or
excessive HDMI cable lengths. Try swapping the display
adaptors from a location that is functioning properly or
swapping the outputs of the matrix switch used.
If the problem remains on the same screen this may be
caused by a connection problem between matrix and
display – turn off all equipment and swap the signal
carrying cables at both ends to ascertain if the cable or
termination is at fault.
HD Noise (NO image) may be an HDCP Issue between
the source and display but poor cabling can also cause
this due to poor communication.
13) Blu-ray: 3D – is the equipment used 3D enabled/
compatible? Is a 3D disc being played in a 3D enabled
Blu-ray player or through a compatible AV receiver?
14) Colour distortion – a pink or green screen indicates
an incompatibility between colour spacing formats – the
commonly used RGB or YUV used by older displays.
Some sources allow switching between RGB and YUV
which may solve any colour problems. If not, try changing
the HDMI cable between the source and the matrix to rule
out defective cabling.
No Sound or Poor Quality Audio
Audio is transmitted within the video signal – there is no
separate audio track – so generally a problem with sound
will be accompanied by a problem with picture. However,
if technical issues with audio are experienced, the cause
is typically communication between sources, displays
and/or AV receiver settings.
1) Have specific speaker sets or zones been
enabled? Some AV receivers allow individual speaker
selections assigned to specific zones in the set up so
check the speakers used are fully connected to the
amplifier and correctly assigned within the system set up.
It may be an EDID issue in that the source reads the audio
EDID from the display and only requests two channel
audio and EDID copy from the AVR may be required or
use an embedded EDID in the AMP or Matrix.
Note: If problems are experienced when an AV receiver is
used, the cause is usually the settings of the AVR itself.
Refer to the AVR manufacturer’s guidelines on the correct
settings to use for your requirements.
2) Consistency of audio output between devices – Is
there any discrepancy between the audio output of the
source, the audio or zonal settings of the AV receiver and
the speaker configuration used needed for successful
audio replication? If outputting 7.1, make sure all devices
connected are also outputting 7.1
Note: Occasionally with some sources, the device settings
allow the specification of audio output through a TV or an
HDMI port. If using an AV receiver, check the HDMI output
option is selected.

TROUBLESHOOTING
cables being used? These can reduce transmission
rates by up to 40% – we recommend solid core straight
through with minimum connections used wherever
possible.
TROUBLESHOOTING AND FAQS
3) Do all the local sources work through the AV
receiver?
Check the operation of each source individually.
Bandwidth
1) If using a graphics-based source (such as a PC/Mac/
media server), make sure the source resolution is set to
a maximum of 1080p, 50Hz. Higher resolutions available
for graphics-based systems require higher bandwidth
that may affect transmission of signals as well as
incompatibility with devices.
IR
1) Check emitters at the IR TX transmitter end
and receivers at the IR RX receiver end – are they
connected to the correct ports on the matrix and display
receiver.
2) Is the emitter correctly positioned on the source?
Fix the emitter directly over the infrared sensor of the
source and attach using the adhesive backing.
Note: Locate the infrared source sensor by using a
flashlight to find the sensor within the facia of the source
display. If necessary, secure the emitter over the sensor
with a small amount of contact adhesive.
3) Is the remote handset powered and sending a
signal?
Note: IR is invisible to the naked eye, so use a digital
camera/ phone camera to check the remote signal – point
the camera at the remote control when pressing a button.
The remote transmitter can be seen flashing to indicate a
signal being sent. Replace batteries if flashing is not seen
on the digital camera screen.
4) IR dropout issues can be due to exterior influences
emitting infrared radiation that can interrupt IR signals.
Ensure emitters and receivers are away from the following
causes of IR interference.
• Direct sunlight, Fluorescent lighting (on cold start up)
• Halogen lighting
• Plasma screens
5) UTP Termination Issues – ensure cables and RJ45
terminations are correct and in good condition at
both transmitter and receiver ends to see if control is
established. If so, a possible re-termination of the cable
could remedy the problem.
6) Are WyreStorm emitters and receivers being used?
12
The use of third party products/magic eyes may not be
compatible. Always use WyreStorm components included
with your purchase or check compatibility of third party
control systems with your WyreStorm dealer.
7) If problems persist, swap out the IR emitters and
receivers to rule out faults with the units themselves. Use
emitters you know are fully operational to test working
condition.
8) Reactivate the IR call-back function on your matrix
and swap IR ports on the matrix to rule out a fault with
thematrix or connection ports.
9) Should IR remain unresponsive, turn off and disconnect
all cables from the matrix and reconnect zones one at a
time to assess if one location in particular is the problem.
If so, run new cables directly to the display – if this fixes
the problem, it is likely that electromagnetic interference /
damage to the cable somewhere along the run is causing
the IR signal to drop out. Investigate and remove EM
interference from the run or replace damaged UTP cable.

FAQs
Cat5e or 6?
While our equipment is tested and graded to Cat 5e
cable standard; tests have shown that better results
are achieved when using Cat6 cable. The lower AWG
(American Wire Gauge) uses thicker copper cores ensure
better signal transfer/Transmission rates. Newly installed
cabling should always conform to Part P Regulation and
BS 7671 (17th Edition), and should be terminated to 568B
standard.
Can I use a single Cat 5e/Cat 6 cable?
Although conventional transmission used to be
considered two Cat5e cables for video, audio and control,
HDBaseT transmission only requires a single cable.
All features found with dual cable transmissions are
supported with HDBaseT, with addition of RS232 serial
control, Power and Ethernet passed along a single
Cat5e/6/7, depending on feature set/model of product
How far can the signal travel?
Under perfect transmission conditions WyreStorm
HDBaseT receivers will operate at 50m, 70m or 100m
(@1080p) depending on the model used.
Perfect conditions denotes no electrical interference,
straight cable runs with no bends or kinks and no patch
Technical Support: support@wyrestorm.com US: +1 866 677 0053 EU: +44 (0) 1793 230 343
Should a cable run approach the upper limit of the
receiver capabilities, the signal can be boosted by
connecting to an HDBaseT AMP-001-010 digital audio
amplifier/receiver act as an in-line repeater up to 7 times
up to 490m/1607ft.
What about 3D?
The RX-70-PP, all of our matrix switches and the majority
of our extender products will pass-through a 3D Blu-ray
signal.
How do I control the sources?
All of our HDMI distribution products support IR passthrough from point-to-point extender sets to AMP and
HDBaseT matrices. Most of the range now supports
wideband IR meaning it is compatible with any IR device
available on the market. Our PP and HDBaseT matrix
range (Cat 5e/Cat6) has IR pass-through from each of the
outputs and has discrete IR outputs at the switch end,
meaning you can have multiple identical sources yet the
IR would be routed only to the applicable source.
Do I need power at the TV end?
Yes. This product requires its own 12v local/mains power
at display zones to operate.
WyreStorm PoH enabled devices require no power supply
at the TV end by drawing power from a PoH matrix or
PoH transmitter. See www.wyrestorm.com for details on
our PoH range.
Are WyreStorm products compatible with HDMI 1.4?
HDMI 1.4 refers to a list of ‘features’ that a device is
capable of supporting, including Ethernet channel, return
audio channel, 3Detc. Due to the continuously evolving
nature of the technology, HDMI Licensing LLC have now
decided to simplify terminology by testing and referring to
cable in terms of STANDARD or HIGH-SPEED rather than
in generations 1.3, 1.4 etc.
• STANDARD (or “category 1”) HDMI cables perform
at speeds of 75Mhz or up to 6.75Gbps, which is the
equivalent to a 720p/1080i signal – These HDMI cables
are NOT recommended.
• All WyreStorm equipment support HIGH-SPEED
(or “category 2”) HDMI cables that have been tested
to perform at speeds of 340Mhz or up to 10.2Gbps,
which is the highest bandwidth currently utilised over
an HDMI cable and can successfully handle 1080p
signals including those at increased colour depths and/
or increased refresh rates from the Source. High-Speed
cables are also able to accommodate higher resolution
displays, such as WQXGA cinema monitors (resolution of
2560 x 1600).
FAQS
panels or wall outlets. If some of the above are factors in
your installation then signal strength and bandwidth can
be compromised.
What about screens with different resolution
capabilities?
When sending a signal point to point a TV will
communicate it’s capabilities to the source, then the
source will output a suitable signal that compatible (i.e.
1080p Stereo audio). If you were to use a matrix switch
with three 1080p screens and one 1080i screen, the
resultant image would be1080i across all screens. The
matrix switches do not scale per output but instead
negotiate with the source a signal that all screens are
capable of supporting.
How does the Trasnmission device handle HDCP?
HDCP (High Definition Copyright Protection) is a feature
built in to HDMI devices to prevent theft of or illegal
distribution of HD content. Unlike competing products,
WyreStorm equipment are legal and comply with HDCP
regulations.
They do this by assigning a “key” to any display
connected to the device. HDCP “keys” are assigned to a
display when connected to a HDMI device normally. This
doesn’t change when connecting to an extender, receiver
or matrix switch; rather keys are duplicated or more are
assigned.
I can get 1080i but not 1080p at a TV location
Firstly ensure that both the source is capable of outputting
1080p and that the TV is Full HD 1080p screen. If this is
the case then the AMP, 70 metre receiver or PP Matrix
may require EDID management setting up using the DIP
switches. This useful feature provides a successful “send
and receive” to ensure swift and stable EDID negotiation
between the source and display. See Troubleshooting
section for more tips on problem solving.
I cannot get a signal from my A/V receiver along a
Cat 5e extender set
Check to ensure that the A/V Receiver isn’t adding CEC
(HDMI Control Protocol) to the outgoing signal, this can
sometimes have an effect on the HDMI signal.
