CAUTION
HDMI is a very complex technology requiring continuous authentication of the signal
and the same video resolution and audio settings on all electronic equipment in the
system. When there are multiple sources and displays, the video resolution and
audio setting on all connected units must be adjusted to correspond with that of the
display having the lowest video and audio capability.

FEATURES
INTRODUCTION
The Evolution by Vanco EVRX3001 HDMI over Single Cat5e/6 Receiver with Bi-directional
IR and EQ management receives high definition video and audio signals and IR, at a distance
of up to 131ft/40m over a single Cat5e/6 cable when utilized with an Evolution by Vanco
standard matrix unit or splitter over single Cat5e/6. Features EQ management, which
allows for fine tuning video quality for seamless integration. The result is an easy and
flexible installation with low maintenance. With only one cost effective Cat5e/6 cable, high
definition sources with HDMI outputs can be connected to high definition displays with HDMI
inputs over long distances. Deep color video, DTS-HD or Dolby TrueHD audio, and HDCP
is supported and compatible with the EVRX3001. In addition, EVRX3001 is also equipped
with bi-directional IR pass-through which allows for source or display control.
The EVRX3001 receiving unit is responsible for equalizing the transmitted HDMI signal and
reconstructing IR and serial control signals from any standard Evolution by Vanco matrix unit
or splitter transmitting HDMI signals over a single Cat5e/6 cable. The EVRX3001 offers
the most convenient solution for HDMI extension over a single Cat5e/6 with long distance
capability, and is the perfect solution for any application.

transmission length from longest possible range to short distance. Adjust the signal level
from MIN to MAX until desired video quality is displayed. Inappropriate signal level setting
may cause overpowering issue that would shorten the product life significantly!

CONNECT AND OPERATE
1. Connect a standard Evolution by Vanco matrix unit or splitter to a source such as a BluRay Player, game console, A/V Receiver, Cable or Satellite Receiver, etc.
2. Connect a display such as an HDTV or HD Projector to the HDMI output on the
Receiving unit.
3. Connect a single Category 5e/6 up to 131ft/40m to the output of the standard
Evolution by Vanco matrix unit or splitter, and the other end to the input of the Receiving
unit.
4. For power, plug in the Receiving unit with the included power supplies.
5. Power on each device in the same sequence (receiver will already be powered when
main unit is plugged in.)
At this point the display connected should display the source signal connected to the extender set. If no signal
is being displayed, connect a shorter Cat5e/6 cable (jumper or patch cable). If a display is having difficulty
receiving a signal, see EDID section and perform EDID learning or access the display’s menu and adjust the
resolution (lowest to highest until signal is displayed) of the standard Evolution by Vanco matrix unit or splitter.
A 24 Hz vertical refresh rate may work better than 60 Hz or higher. Use the source remote at the receiver
emitter to test IR functionality. If the IR remote function is not responding, check the emitters to ensure they
are placed correctly and are plugged into the correct IR jacks on the Extender set receiving and transmitting
units.

NOTICE
1. Vanco HDMI and Cat5e/6 cables are strongly recommended for use with this product
to ensure best results.
2. Incorrect placement of IR Blaster and Receiver may result in the failure of the IR
extenders. Please check carefully before plugging in the IR extender to the respective IR
sockets.
3. The transmission length is largely affected by the type of Cat5e/6 cables utilized, the
type of HDMI sources, and the type of HDMI display. The testing result shows solid UTP
cables (usually in the form of 300m [1,000ft] bulk cables) can transmit a lot longer
signals than stranded UTP cables (usually in the form of fixed length patch cords).
Shielded STP cables are better suited than unshielded UTP cables. A solid UTP Cat5e/6
cable shows longer transmission range than stranded STP Cat-6 cable. For long
extension applications, use solid UTP/STP category cables.
4. EIA/TIA-568-B termination (T568B) for Cat5e/6 cables is recommended for better
performance.
5. To reduce the interference among the unshielded twisted pairs of wires in Cat5e/6
cables, one can use shielded STP cables to improve EMI problems, which worsens in
long cable transmission.
6. The quality of Cat5e/6 cables can have a major effect on how long the transmission
limit can achieve and quality of picture, the actual transmission range is subject to the
Cat5e/6 cable utilized. For the best results, Cat6 is recommended.
7. 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.

TROUBLE-SHOOTING
1. Best results are usually achieved when the source and display resolutions are the same.
If resolutions differ, the extenders will try to adjust the signal to match the resolution of
the HDTV with the lowest resolution. This will result in a picture with a lower resolution
on the other HDTV sets.
2. If you do not get audio and video, access the “setup” menu on the TV to adjust the audio
and video settings. If the HDMI control circuit cannot establish a handshake, then there
usually will be no audio or video in addition to a blue or black screen with a statement
similar to “this protocol not supported” or “weak signal”.
3. If the above mentioned messages display, reset the receiver by disconnecting the power
supply. You can also disconnect all of the HDMI and power cables, wait 15 minutes for
any voltages to decay and then reconnect all of the cables.
4. If you are still encountering issues, attempt the “hot-plug concept. With all of the HDMI
cables disconnected, turn on the source and plug in the HDMI cable into it’s output,
then power up the Vanco unit and plug the HDMI cable into it’s input, finally turn on the
display and plug the HDMI cable from the receiver into it. This activates all of the devices
in corresponding order and results in a signal being plugged into a device that is on and
will attempt to connect the signal.
5. Most of the major source and display manufacturers employ a proprietary control
channel to communicate between devices from the same manufacturer. Sometimes this
can interfere with the HDMI control circuit or the authentication of the signal. Call the
manufacturer if you experience this issue. Sometimes a player, an audio/video receiver,
or a cable/satellite box may not have the latest software update, usually this can be
downloaded from the manufacturer’s website.
6. If you have problems with the IR control circuit, make sure that the IR RX pigtail is
plugged into extender receiver and pointed at the display, and the IR TX pigtail is
attached to the extender sender and pointed at the source.
