INTRODUCTION
The 5496 HDMI extender over single cat.X with bi-directional IR boosts up your video/audio
transmission distance up to 60m (200 ft) in HDTV 1080i format, 40m (130ft) in HDTV 1080p format, and
20m (65ft) in HDTV 1080p with 36-bit colour depth. 5496 also supports the most advanced 3D video
format and therefore guarantees the highest 3D video compatibility on the market. With only one cost
effective Cat.5/5e/6 cable, users can readily extend HDTV sources from DVD players, Blu-ray Disc player,
PS3, PC, and any other kinds of sources compliant with TMDS to distant display monitors including HDMI
or DVI enabled TV sets or LCD PC monitors. With the advanced design for the latest HDMI technology,
deep colour video, DTS-HD Master Audio or Dolby TrueHD audio, HDCP support and compatibility are
all further ensured. This flexibility makes HDCP compliant DVD players or PS3 transmit utmost high
quality video and audio with greater distance at the minimal of cost, when integrating several components
apart. In addition, 5496 is also equipped with bi-directional IR pass-through path. This bonus feature
allows users to boost IR control distance up to 100m (330 ft) and makes IR control possible through only
single Cat.5/5e/6 cable including the HDMI signals.
The 5496 includes two units: transmitting unit 5496-TX and receiving unit 5496-RX. The
transmitting unit is used to capture the input HDMI / DVI signals with IR control packets and carry the
signals via one cost effective Cat.5/5e/6 cable. The receiving unit is responsible for equalising the
transmitted HDMI signal and reconstructing IR signals. The transmission distance between the sending
and receiving units can be up to 60m (200 ft) at HD 720p or 1080i; or 40m (130 ft) at Full HD 1080p. With
an 8-level equalisation rotary control on the receiving unit, users can adjust the equalisation strength to
the received HDMI signals accordingly, and therefore optimise the transmission distance between source
and destination.

● Extends the transmission up to 20m (65 ft) from the HDMI source at Full HD 1080p 36-bit
● HDCP 1.1 compliant
● Minimises the cable skew by the adjustable 8-level equalisation control
● Pure, unaltered and uncompressed 7.1ch digital HDMI over Cat.5/5e/6 cable transmission

The claimed transmission distance here is subject to the grade of installed cable(s), source
device and display.
For over CAT5/COAX transmission, the cable(s) has to be solid, not stranded. Any keystone
jack along the transmission path will kill the transmission performance significantly!

HARDWARE INSTALLATION
1. Connect a HDMI or DVI source (such as a Blu-ray Disc player) to the transmitting unit 5496-TX.
2. Connect a HDMI or DVI display (such as a LCD TV) to the receiving unit 5496-RX.
3. Connect IR Blaster/Receiver to both TX and RX units.
4. Connect a Cat-5/5e/6 cable between the transmitting and receiving units.
5. Make sure this Cat-5/5e/6 cable is tightly connected and not loose.
6. Plug in 5V DC power supply unit to the power jack of the receiving unit 5496-RX.
7. Plug in 5V DC power supply unit to the power jack of the transmitting unit 5496-TX.
8. If you see flickering or blinking image on the display, please adjust the rotary control switch to improve
the cable skew. MAX stands for the strongest HDMI signal level for longest possible transmission
length while MIN stands for the weakest 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!
EDID LEARNING
1. Turn off 5496-TX and disconnect the Cat.5/5e/6 between 5496-TX and 5496-RX.
2. Connect the HDMI display to "HDMI IN" on the 5496-TX with a HDMI cable.
3. Set "MODE" on the transmitting unit 5496-TX at H.
4. Turn on the 5496-TX.
5. The LED on the RJ45 of 5496-TX will dim and light again, which indicates the EDID learning
procedure is complete.
6. Unplug the HDMI cable from the display and follow the instruction in [Hardware Installation] to set up
the 5496 and enjoy the experience.

NOTICE
1. When adjusting the signal level on the receiver unit, please dial the rotary control switch from MIN to
MAX and stop turning the rotary switch whenever the audio/video is playing normally. Inappropriate
signal level setting may cause over powering issue that would shorten the product life significantly!
2. Incorrect insertion of the IR blaster and IR receiver into the wrong 3.5mm infrared sockets may result
in the failure of the IR extenders. Please check them carefully before plugging in the IR extender to
the respective IR sockets.
3. If the DVI or HDMI device requires the EDID information, please use EDID Reader/Writer to retrieve
and provide DVI or HDMI display EDID information.
4. All HDMI over CAT5 transmission distances are measured using CAT5e 125MHz UTP cable and Video
Signal Generator.
5. The transmission length is largely affected by the type of Cat-5/5e/6 cables, the type of HDMI sources,
and the type of HDMI display. The testing result shows solid UTP cables (usually in the form of 300m
[1,000 ft] 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 Cat-5e cable shows longer transmission range than stranded STP Cat-6 cable. For long
extension applications, solid UTP/STP cables are the only viable choice.
6. EIA/TIA-568-B termination (T568B) for Cat-5/5e/6 cables is recommended for better performance.
7. To reduce the interference among the unshielded twisted pairs of wires in Cat-5/5e/6 cable, one can
use shielded STP cables to improve EMI problems, to improve long transmission.
8. Because the quality of the CAT5/6 cables has the major effect on how long the transmission limit can
achieve and how good is the received picture quality, the actual transmission range is subject to one's
choice of Cat-5/5e/6 cables. For desired resolutions greater than 1080i or 1280x1024, a Cat-6 cable is
recommended.
9. 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 of the other HDMI inputs.
