MultiView™II DVI-Rx-1K Receiver: Quick Start Guide
The Magenta MultiView™II DVI-Rx-1K receiver extends DVI-D digital video, and optionally audio, and serial auxiliary signals over
F/UTP‡ cable. There are user-configurable settings for audio and serial options which can be controlled from the front panel. For more
details please refer to the complete MultiView™II DVI-Rx-1K User Guide, available for download at www.tvone.com.
NOTE: The MVII-DVI-Rx-1K receiver will ONLY work correctly with a matching MVII-DVI-Tx transmitter (Fixed-Sync mode).
Required Tools / Hardware / Materials: Tools include appropriate screwdriver(s) and mounting hardware (optional, for example: rackmount, wall or under-desk mounting). Required materials include appropriate cables for your specific application.
PRECAUTIONS: (1) Do not apply AC power until instructed to
do so. (2) This equipment is not intended for, nor does it
support, distribution through an Ethernet network. Do not
connect these devices to any sort of networking or
telecommunications equipment! (3) Use only tvONE-approved
MultiView™ power adapters. Failure to do so may damage this
device and will void the warranty.

(Optional) Depending on installation requirements: At
any time during installation, the receiver may be securely
mounted using appropriate brackets and hardware.

(Optional) Make your serial and/or audio connections
via the DB9 IOIO or AUX I/O connectors, as needed.
Note: The DB9
serial port is only
available when the
“SAP” option is
present.
Connect the DVI
OUT connector to
the display device.

Power-up Check: Connect all signal and power cables, then apply AC power. The power ON indicator should light. If there is a DVI
OUT monitor attached, a video image should appear on the monitor. If there is no image on the display, recheck the MVII DVI-Tx has a
valid source, all cables are connected, and ensure the display is turned on.
Setting the EQ and Skew: By default, the MVII-DVI-Rx-1K has the “auto-EQ/Skew” feature enabled. Within a few seconds of
connecting the F/UTP cable to the link-input, EQ and Skew settings should be automatically found which give a picture on the DVI
OUT. While the receiver is actively auto-detecting, the range LEDs will repeatedly scan from 1 to 8 (this is EQ-hunt mode). When valid
EQ and Skew settings are found, the range LEDs will stop and display the final EQ setting. The “auto-EQ/Skew” will give a picture, but
during installation you MUST fine-tune for good video output. The EQ/Skew setting is critical – or there will be no video output at all.
Front Panel Controls: (Refer to Figure-2) There are four buttons (CFG/MODE, SKEW/SEL, DOWN and UP), and several green LED
status indicators. These are used to control the operating modes of the receiver, and to display current status.
Status Indicators at power-up: When the receiver is first powered on, the status indicators will cycle through a test sequence. If the
auto-EQ feature is enabled, the receiver will then immediately begin its auto-EQ procedure. The “normal” LED status will then be:




‡
POWER-ON indicator is on.
CFG indicator is off.
SKEW/RGB indicator is off.
EQ/SKEW indicators will be hunting for the correct EQ setting, then display the current EQ settings (1 to 8 = 0 to 100% range).
F/UTP cable is constructed of 4 unshielded twisted pairs, with a foil screen around all 4 pairs

Manual EQ Adjustment: To manually adjust the EQ setting, simply use the UP or DOWN buttons. The EQ/SKEW indicators 1-8 will
show the current setting as 1-8 (0-100%) of the available EQ adjustment range.
(starting in normal-mode)
 Press & hold the UP or DOWN button until the SKEW/RGB indicator turns on (VIOLET). Release the UP or DOWN button.
 Press the UP or DOWN buttons repeatedly to adjust the EQ setting, either one step at a time or hold for auto-repeat.
 To exit EQ-ADJUST mode, leave the buttons untouched for 10 seconds, or press the CFG button once.
Note: For best results, use the Magenta EQ/Skew “test pattern” image if possible. This is available from the tvONE website.
Manual Skew Adjustment: To manually adjust the Skew setting, simply use the UP or DOWN buttons after getting into “Skew-adjust”
mode. The EQ/SKEW indicators 1-8 will show the current setting as 1-8 (0-100%) of the available Skew adjustment range for each
color.
(starting in normal-mode)
 RED skew adjust: Press & hold the SKEW/SEL button until the SKEW/RGB indicator turns on RED. Release SKEW button.
 Press the UP or DOWN button repeatedly to adjust the RED skew value.
 GREEN skew adjust: Press and release the SKEW/SEL button. The SKEW/RGB indicator will turn GREEN.
 Press the UP or DOWN button repeatedly to adjust the GREEN value.
 BLUE skew adjust: Press and release the SKEW/SEL button. The SKEW/RGB indicator will turn BLUE.
 Press the UP or DOWN button to adjust the BLUE value.
 Pressing the SKEW/SEL button again will return you to step-2, allowing adjustment of the RED skew again.
 To exit SKEW-ADJUST mode, leave the buttons untouched for 10 seconds or press the CFG button.
Note: For best results, use the Magenta EQ/Skew “test pattern” image if possible. This is available from the tvONE website.
Re-enabling the auto-EQ/Skew feature: From normal mode, press both the UP and DOWN buttons simultaneously. Hold both buttons
down for 1 second or more. The auto-EQ/Skew feature will be enabled and the receiver will immediately enter EQ-hunt mode. Within
seconds, valid EQ and Skew settings will be found. You MUST manually adjust for the best picture.
Changing Internal Settings: In configuration-mode (CFG indicator = on), the CFG and SKEW/SEL buttons, plus the LED indicators
(1-8) will allow you to change internal configuration settings. The changes are effective immediately and are saved in non-volatile
memory.

To enter configuration-mode: Press and hold the CFG button until the CFG indicator is ON. Once in this mode, LEDs 1-8
will display the current settings as described in the tables below.

To exit configuration-mode: Leave the buttons untouched for 10 seconds or press the CFG button again. The CFG indicator
will turn off (normal-mode).

Configuration Mode, 4th Pair Options: The MVII-DVI-Rx-1K provides several options for using the 4th-pair signals (pairs 1-3 are
generally used for video). The factory-default settings support analog audio (L+R summed) on the 4 th-pair. Note that the connected
MultiView transmitter and any daisy-chained receivers must be configured with a matching 4 th-pair operating mode. Otherwise, the
desired 4th-pair signal will not work as expected – but the video will not be affected. Note: If the optional SAP daughterboard is installed
then the 4th-pair options are fixed and unchangeable.

has an effect only for “-S”, “-A” and S/PDIF operating modes. Note: It is not possible to access the 4th-pair setting if an option board is
installed – since this setting is ignored.

Troubleshooting: In many cases, problems encountered when installing MultiView™II extension products can be resolved by checking
the F/UTP cable termination. It must be pinned out according to the TIA/EIA 568B standard wiring specification. For additional
troubleshooting information or to obtain the TIA/EIA 568B wiring specifications please refer to the MVII-DVI-Rx-1K User Guide,
