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.

INTRODUCTION
The EVMX44SL is a high-performance matrix with multiple modes to produce seamless matrix switching, as well as having
multiview, and video wall modes. The switching of the matrix mode allows the speed of switching to be controlled
allowing inputs to fade in/fade Multiview mode allows all of the sources to be seen on the displays equally in Quadview,
or in PIP with a main source being larger than the other smaller sources. Video Wall mode allows the matrix to be
configured to fit a 2x2 video wall with vertical and horizontal adjustments to account for different sized display bezels.
The EVMX44SL also incorporates a scaler function to achieve a variety of formats to to a unified output signal with
embedding audio. At the same time it with infrared matrix function. Flexible control mode possible through the front
panel, IR, RS-232 and TCP/IP control.

IR CONTROL SYSTEM
At Matrix end: Insert the 3.5mm jacks of the IR TX Emitters included with the unit into the IR TX Emitter
ports at the rear of the matrix according to input. The IR signal is added to the HDMI of the input device so,
for example, if the user is watching Blu-ray on input 1, the IR signal will be directed through the IR TX1
socket to control the device.
As each IR TX port is allocated to an individual HDMI input port, if the user is unable to establish IR control
of the device, care should be taken to check firstly, that the IR emitter and HDMI input ports match (Input
1-TX1, Input2-TX2 etc.) with plugs secured in correct ports, and secondly, that the IR TX emitter sensors are
firmly attached directly to the front of inputs and covering infrared sensor windows of the source devices.
Some later adjustment may be needed to the location of the sensor to achieve the best performance
results - sometimes moving the sensor to different areas on the source can improve IR performance.

NOTE: Infrared receiving areas of devices can be located by shining a flashlight onto the front of the device
– the sensor should be able to be seen through the plastic as a small, round object inside. Insert 3.5mm
jacks of IR RX receivers into RX ports, making sure the receivers themselves are placed in clear view to
receive an infrared signal from the remote handset used to control the display outputs.

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.
