Power off all devices, including the source HDMI device and display. Connect your HDMI source (such as a Bluray Disc player) to the transmitter's HDMI IN connector. Connect the RS-232 cable (not included) to the transmitter's RS-232 connector. Connect the IR cable to the transmitter's IR connector. Use the appropriate IR cable and socket depending on the desired IR direction. Connect your HDMI display (such as a LCD TV) to the receiver's HDMI OUT connector. Connect your Cat5/5e/6 LAN cable (do not use crosscover LAN cable) between the transmitter and receiver. Make sure the cable is securely connected and not loose. Connect the RS-232 cable (not included) to the receiver's RS-232 connector. Connect the IR cable to the receiver's IR connector. Use the appropriate IR cable and socket depending on the desired IR direction. Plug one of the included power adapters into to the +5V DC power jack of the transmitter, plug the second power adapter into the +5V DC power jack of the receiver, then plug both power adapters into reliable power sources. If you see flickering or blinking image on the display, please adjust the Signal level switch to improve the cable equalization. MAX stands for the strongest HDMI signal level for short transmission length. Please adjust the signal level from MIN to MAX and stop turning the rotary switch whenever the audio/ video is playing normally. Inappropriate signal level setting may cause overpowering issue that would shorten the product life significantly! 7 Note: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8 When adjusting the signal level on the receiver unit, please dial the rotary control switch from MIN to MAX and stop turning the rotary control whenever the audio/video is playing normally. Inappropriate signal level setting may cause overpowering issue that would shorten the product life significantly! Inserting the IR blaster and IR receiver into the wrong 3.5mm infrared sockets may result in the failure of the IR extenders. Please check carefully before plugging in the IR extender to the respective IR sockets. If the DVI or HDMI device requires EDID information from the connected display, please use EDID Reader/Writer to retrieve and provide DVI or HDMI display EDID information. All HDMI over CAT5 transmission distances are measured using Belden 1583A Cat5e 125MHz UTP cable and ASTRODESIGN Video Signal Generator VG-859C & VG-870B. The transmission length is largely affected by the type of Cat5/5e/6 cables, the type of HDMI sources, and the type of HDMI display. The testing result shows solid UTP cables can transmit longer signals than stranded UTP cables. Shielded STP cables are better suited than unshielded UTP cables. For long extension applications, solid UTP/STP cables are the only viable choice. EIA/TIA-568-B termination (T568B) for Cat5/5e/6 cables is recommended for better performance. To reduce EMI interference over long distances, always use shielded STP Cat5/5e/6 cabling. 8. 9. Use high quality Cat5/5e/6 cable, especially over longer transmission distances. For resolution greater that 1080i or 1280x1024, a CAT6 cable is recommended. 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. 9 Blank Page 10 Technical Support and Warranty QUESTIONS?
