Introduction
Overview
The VE829 5x2 HDMI Wireless Extender is the first of its kind to send full
uncompressed HD 1080p, while connecting up to 5 source devices and
allowing users to switch and independently select any source to display on two
HDTVs. Its wireless matrix feature is the biggest breakthough in Audio / Video
solutions to date. This means you can watch cable TV in one location
(transmitter side) and, at the same time, independently select a Blu-ray movie
to watch in another location (receiver side). The VE829 is capable of streaming
Full HD 1080p with support for 3D content and digital audio up to 30m away,
within the home or any desired setup.
Note: Distance, quality and signal may vary depending on the environment;
solid structures, such as steel, concrete and brick may result to shorter
distance coverage or complete loss of signal.
The solution consists of a Wireless Transmitter and a Wireless Receiver with
connections for the HDMI and Component, along with a loop through (local
port) for advanced two-HDTV setups. It also features USB HID connectivity
for adding a computer / laptop to the installment, giving you wireless control
from the VE829R. Infrared (IR) pass-through enables wireless control of your
source devices and helps consolidate your HD A/V electronics, such as a
DVDs / Blu-ray players, DVRs / Cable boxes, Game consoles and computers
allowing you to design your own custom entertainment space.

IR Blaster Extender Cable Setup
To use the remote controls for your input source devices (i.e., DVD player,
game console, Set-top box, etc.) from the Receiver side, use the provided IR
Blaster Extender Cable and IR Sensor Extender Cable. This setup conveniently
enables a user to control the input source devices even while physically located
up to 100 feet away them. Do the following steps for your units:
Transmitter
1. Connect one end of the IR Blaster Extender Cable to the IR Out port on
the VE829T.
2. Attach the IR Blaster heads to the input source device panels –
specifically, over the IR sensor of the audio/video device.
Receiver
3. Connect one end of the IR Sensor Extender Cable to the IR In port on the
VE829R.
4. Attach the IR sensor to a visible area where you can point your IR remote
control (i.e. front panel of the display device or against a wall).
Note: The VE829 IR sensors support 38 KHz, 47 KHz and 56 KHz remote
signal protocol.

Basic Operation
Overview
The VE829 Transmitter and Receiver communicate wirelessly. At startup,
ensure that the units first establish a connection with each other.
See Transmitter and Receiver Link below for details.
There are various convenient methods to operate the VE829: manually via the
panel pushbutton, using the IR remote control, and via the On-Screen Display
(OSD). Manual operation involves pressing the Source pushbutton located on
the unit’s top panel or using the Source button on the remote control.
Input source switching, as well as adding/removing Transmitters and
modifying the Transmitter name, via OSD using the remote control are
discussed in Chapter 4.
Transmitter and Receiver Link
After powering on the Transmitter and Receiver, the panel LEDs blink to
indicate that the two units are establishing a connection. This takes around 15
to 20 seconds. The LEDs light a steady green when the boot up is completed
and the VE829 devices are ready for use.
Note: 1. If the LEDs continue to blink after 80 seconds, check the distance
between the Transmitter and Receiver. The maximum distance
between VE829T / VE829R is 100 feet, while the minimum distance
between VE829 devices is 6.5 feet if you have more than one set of
VE829.
2. Distance, quality and signal may vary depending on the environment;
solid structures, such as steel, concrete and brick may result to shorter
distance coverage or complete loss of signal.
Make sure your display device is set in HDMI input mode. Refer the user
manual of your HDMI display for more information.

Naming Source Devices
You can give names the input source devices attached to the VE829T
(Transmitter) to easily identify them. To do this, follow these steps:
1. Press and hold the Source button on the top panel of the VE829T for over
3 seconds.
2. In the screen that appears on your HDMI display, input the name you want
to give the input source device. Do this pointing the remote control at the
VE829T and using the Up and Down keys to change the letters / numbers;
use the Left and Right keys to move the cursor. The IR key serves as a
backspace.
3. Save the input source device name by either pressing the Source key on
the remote control or on the top panel of the VE829T.
The name should appear on screen when the input source device is selected for
both Transmitter and Receiver sides.
Note: Refer to Modify Transmitter Name, page 23 for steps on using the
Transmitter No. button to change the Transmitter name.
Device Pairing
If you want to link another VE829T (Transmitter) with an existing VE829R
(Receiver), do the following steps:
1. Enter the Pairing mode for the VE829T. Power off the unit by unplugging
it.
2. Press and hold down the Power button. Plug the unit but keep pressing the
Power button until the LED is blinking orange indicating that the VE829T
has entered the Pairing mode.
3. Do the same steps for the VE829R. Once the receiver enters the Pairing
mode, the screen shows a progress bar.
4. Once the pairing is finished, both units reboot and are ready to work
together.

OSD Operation
Overview
The On-Screen Display (OSD) is a menu driven method to handle VE829T /
VE829R control and switching operations. It appears on the attached HDMI
displays (Transmitter or Receiver) after hardware connections are made and
the devices are powered on.
Source Device Switching
You can switch between source inputs via the OSD using the IR remote control
as follows:
Š VE829T (Transmitter): Press the Up / Down keys.
Š VE829R (Receiver): Press the Left / Right keys.
The OSD cycles through the input devices and you can press OK
once the desired source is selected.
Adding and Selecting Active Transmitter
You can add up to 4 VE829T (Transmitter) unit to a VE829R (Receiver) via
the OSD. If more than one Transmitter is within range and/or are added with
the Receiver, you can use the OSD to select which one to use for the session.
The original transmitter paired with your Receiver is named Transmitter 1,
while the transmitter to be added is named Transmitter 2 in this section.
21
VE829 User Manual
To add another Transmitter to a Receiver, do the following steps:
1. Make sure Transmitter 1 is powered off. Press Transmitter No. on the IR
remote control (pointing to the Receiver).
2. Press the Up / Down button on your remote control and go to SETUP,
press OK.
3. Select Add New Transmitter. The VE829R starts searching for
Transmitters within range.
Note: Press Transmitter No. key to exit the Searching screen.
During this period, press and hold the Power pushbutton on the top panel
of the Transmitter you want to add, then power it on. Hold the power
button down until the Power LED on the Transmitter starts to blink
(orange), which indicates that the unit has entered Connecting Mode. Once
the process is successful, the OSD displays Transmitter 2 on screen.
Note: Refer to Naming Source Devices, page 18 for details on how to edit
the name of a Transmitter.
4. After successfully connecting the Receiver with Transmitter 2, you can
now power on Transmitter 1. The Receiver can be linked with either
transmitters (1 and 2), which can be selected through the Transmitter No.
button on the remote control.
Note: 1. To add more transmitters, repeat steps 1 to 4.
2. Although you can connect the Receiver with multiple
Transmitters, only one Receiver can operate at a time.
3. If you have more than one pair of this product, each Transmitter
and Receiver should be at least 6.5 feet away from one another.
4. When Receiver 1 is connected to Transmitter 2, the original
receiver paired with Transmitter 2 (Receiver 2) gets
disconnected. You need to pair Transmitter 2 to Receiver 2 again
to use them together. See Device Pairing, page 18 for details.
22
OSD Operation
Remove Transmitter
To remove a Transmitter from the list of transmitters paired with a receiver, do
the following:
1. Press Transmitter No. on the IR remote control, go to SETUP then press
OK.
2. Select Remove Transmitter.
3. Go to the Transmitter you want to remove and press OK.
Modify Transmitter Name
To change a Transmitter name, do the following:
1. Press Transmitter No. on the IR remote control, go to SETUP then press
OK.
2. Select Modify Transmitter Name.
3. Go to the Transmitter that you want to rename.
4. Using the IR remote control, press the Up and Down keys to change the
letters / numbers; use the Left and Right keys to move the cursor. The IR
key serves as a backspace.
Note: Refer to Naming Source Devices, page 18 for steps on using the Source
