2. Enable or disable automatic routing of the local and remote inputs by clicking the
appropriate Auto Route radio button:
•
To enable automatic routing, click the TRUE radio button (default setting).
•
To disable automatic routing, click the FALSE radio button.
3. In the text entry boxes of the Output, Local Inputs, and Remote Transmitter
(HD-TX-201-C-2G-E or HD-TX-301-C-E) sections, rename the output and inputs
if desired, and then click Save Name.
NOTE: The Output section displays the resolution and frame rate being transmitted

input radio button. The input is routed to the output.
To manually disconnect the route of a local or remote input, click the <clear Route> radio
button in the Local Inputs section of the page.
Configuring Input Settings
The web interface allows the desired EDID to be selected and sent to the inputs. Three
built-in EDID files are available for selection, and a custom EDID file can also be selected.
The EDID can be selected on a global basis and sent to all inputs, or it can be selected on
an individual basis for each input. In addition, inputs can be renamed. HDCP support can
also be enabled or disabled for each input on an individual basis. The routing priority level of
inputs can also be set. For the HD-MD-400-C-E only, TT-100 support can also be
configured.
To configure inputs, do the following:
1. In the navigation bar, click INPUTS. The Inputs page opens.

Click Load. A prompt appears asking for confirmation that the EDID file be
uploaded to the input device.
d. Click OK. The following occur:
•
In the Global EDID section of the page, the custom EDID filename is
added to the Send EDID to All inputs drop-down list.
•
In the Local Inputs and Remote Transmitter (HD-TX-201-C-2G-E or
HD-TX-301-C-E) sections of the page, the custom EDID filename is added
to the EDID drop-down lists.
NOTE: Only custom EDID files can be deleted. Built-in EDID files cannot be
deleted. To delete a custom EDID file, click Delete in the Global EDID section of
the page. The custom EDID file is deleted from the Send EDID to All inputs dropdown list and also from each individual EDID drop-down list in the Local Inputs and
Remote Transmitter (HD-TX-201-C-2G-E or HD-TX-301-C-E) sections of the
page.
NOTE: When a custom EDID file is deleted, the EDID reverts to the default EDID
for any input that was loaded with the custom EDID. The default EDID for an HDMI
input is DM Default EDID. The default EDID for the VGA input is DM Default
VGA EDID.

3. Configure the inputs as follows:
a.
(Optional) In the Global EDID section of the page, globally apply the same EDID
to all inputs simultaneously by doing the following:
i.
In the Send EDID to All inputs drop-down list, select the desired built-in
EDID file or a custom EDID file. The built-in EDID files are as follows:
1 DM Default EDID
16 DM Default VGA EDID
Output
NOTE: Selecting Output copies the EDID from the output to all of the
inputs.
ii.
Click Apply to All. The selected EDID is automatically sent to all inputs
and appears in the EDID drop-down list for all inputs in the Local Inputs
and Remote Transmitter (HD-TX-201-C-2G-E or HD-TX-301-C-E)
sections of the page.
b. In the Local Inputs and Remote Transmitter (HD-TX-201-C-2G-E or
HD-TX-301-C-E) sections of the page, configure each input as desired:
NOTE: For each input, the Sync icon denotes whether a source is detected at
the input. If a source is detected, the icon is green. If no source is detected, the
icon is gray.
i.
In the Name text box, rename the input if desired.
ii.
If an EDID other than the Global EDID is to be assigned, select the desired
EDID in the EDID drop-down list.
iii.
(Applicable only to inputs 1–2 of the HD-MD-300-C-E and inputs 1–3 of
the HD-MD-400-C-E) In the HDCP Support drop-down list, select
Enabled or Disabled. The default setting is Enabled.
iv.
(Applicable only to input 3 of the HD-MD-300-C-E and input 4 of the
HD-MD-400-C-E) In the Audio Only drop-down list, select Enabled or
Disabled. When Audio Only is enabled, analog audio can be transmitted
from the VGA input without video (a blue frame is displayed). If Audio Only
is disabled, an active VGA video source must be connected to the
VGA input. The default setting is Disabled.
NOTE: When Audio Only is enabled and when Auto Route is set to
TRUE on the Routing page, automatic switching from the VGA input to
another input occurs when a new source is detected at another input.
Automatic switching from the VGA input to another input will not occur if
an active VGA video source is disconnected from the VGA input.
v.
(Applicable only when Auto Route is set to TRUE on the Routing page)
In the Priority drop-down list, select the priority level for routing of the
input.
NOTE: In order for a priority level to be selected, the Priority Routing
radio button in the Priority Routing Support section of the Inputs page
must be set to Enabled.
Supplemental Guide – DOC. 7797C
HD-MD-300-C-E/HD-MD-400-C-E: HD Scaling Auto-Switchers • 9
Priority levels for automatic routing of an input range from Priority 1
(highest priority) to Priority 3 (lowest priority for the HD-MD-300-C-E) or
Priority 4 (lowest priority for the HD-MD-400-C-E). Automatic routing of
an input occurs according to the routing priority level and the detection of
a source at the input. Routing of an input remains until the input is
disconnected. If the input that is being routed is disconnected, automatic
routing switches to another input based on the routing priority level and
the detection of a source at the input. If Priority 1 is set for all inputs, the
last connected input is automatically routed.
vi.
c.
Do one of the following:

•
Quick Selection: (Default setting) The HD-MD-400-C-E switches among
the active inputs each time a button on a cable caddy is pressed while the
button LED is green. The selected active input is displayed on the output.
A button LED is green when an active input is routed and is blue when no
inputs are connected to the HD-MD-400-C-E.
•
Standard: Operates according to the SIMPL program (refer to the SIMPL
Windows help file for information)
