Introduction
The CV-57J HDMI 1.3 over Single CAT5 Extender with IR Pass-through boosts up your video/audio
transmission distance up to 60m (200ft) in HDTV 1080i format, 40m (130ft) in HDTV 1080p format, and 20m
(65ft) in HDTV 1080p with 36 bit color depth. With only one cost effective LAN 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/DVI enabled TV sets or LCD PC monitors. With the
state-of-the-art Silicon Image chipsets equipped, deep color video, DTS-HD or Dolby TrueHD audio, and HDCP
supports and compatibility are all further insured. This flexibility makes HDCP compliant DVD players or PS3
transmit utmost high quality video and audio with a greater distance at the minimal cost, when integrating several
components apart. In addition, CV-57J 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 type cable including HDMI signals.
The CV-57J includes two units: transmitting (CV-57J[Tx]) and receiving (CV-57J[Rx]) units. The transmitting
unit is used to capture the input HDMI/DVI signals with IR control packets and carry the signals through one
RJ-45 connector into one cost effective Cat-5/5e/6 cable. The receiving unit is responsible for equalizing the
transmitted HDMI signal and reconstructing IR signals. The transmission distance between the sending and
receiving units can be up to 60m (200ft) under HD (720p/1080i) or 40m (130ft) under Full HD (1080p). With an
8-level equalization rotary control on the receiving unit, users can adjust the equalization strength to the received
HDMI signals accordingly, and therefore optimize the transmission distance between source and destination.

Note for EDID (Extended Display Identification Data) learning
1. If you cannot get the audio/video output from the connected display from the first time setup. Please
follow the instructions below to check if the extender is OK:
Step 1 – Please set the rotary arrow on TX at “Mode 5” for Safe Mode, and wait for the LED of the
RJ-45 connector blinks for a couple seconds.
Step 2 – Please turn the rotary arrow counterclockwise [
] from Mode 5 to Mode 3. If you can get
audio/video from the display, you can stay tune at this setting for 720p or 1080i and stereo
audio. If you need to get 720p/1080i with 7.1ch audio output, please turn the rotary arrow
counterclockwise [
] from Mode 3 to Mode 2. For better audio/video output, please check
Note#2. If you still cannot get the audio/video out normally, please go on the next step.
Step 3 – Please turn the rotary arrow counterclockwise [
] from Mode 3 to Mode 7. Wait a few
seconds until the LED of the RJ-45 connector dims and then lights again.
Step 4 – Please turn the rotary arrow clockwise [
] from Mode 7 to Mode 1. You should have normal
audio/video output. If not, please contact technical support.
~5~
2. For desirable 1080p video output, please follow the instructions below:
Step 1 – Please set the rotary arrow on TX at “Mode 6” for Default Mode, and wait for the LED of the
RJ-45 connector blinks for a couple seconds.
Step 2 – Please turn the rotary arrow clockwise [
] from Mode 6 to Mode 1. If you can get
audio/video from the display, you can stay tune at this setting for 1080p and stereo audio. If
you need to get 1080p with 7.1ch audio output, please turn the rotary arrow
counterclockwise [
] from Mode 1 to Mode 0. If you cannot get the audio/video out
normally, please go on the next step.
Step 3 – Please turn the rotary arrow counterclockwise [
] from Mode 0/1 to Mode 7. Wait a few
seconds until the LED of the RJ-45 connector dims and then lights again.
Step 4 – Please turn the rotary arrow clockwise [
] from Mode 7 to Mode 0/1. You should have your
desirable audio/video output. If not, please follow the instruction in Note#1.
3. To learn EDID from the HDMI display, please follow the instruction below:
Step 1 – Please connect the display which you want to read EDID with a HDMI cable to the
transmitter’s HDMI IN and set the rotary arrow at Mode 7 so the TX can learn the EDID
information from the connected display. The LED on the RJ45 connector of TX will dim and
light again in a few seconds, which indicates the EDID learning procedure is complete.
Step 2 – Please turn the rotary arrow clockwise [
] from Mode 7 to Mode 0 or Mode 1 for desirable
audio setting and enjoy the experience. DO NOT let the rotary arrow pass by Mode 5 and
Mode 6 which will erase the EDID just learned and restore the default EDID.

Hardware Installation
1. Connect a HDMI or DVI source (such as a Blu-ray Disc player) to the transmitting unit CV-57J[Tx].
2. Connect a HDMI or DVI display (such as a LCD TV) to the receiving unit CV-57J[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 CV-57J[Rx].
7. Plug in 5V DC power supply unit to the power jack of the transmitting unit CV-57J[Tx].
8. If you see flickering or blinking image on the display, please adjust the rotary control switch to improve
the cable skew. 0 stands for the strongest HDMI signal level for longest possible transmission length
while 7 stands for the weakest HDMI signal level for short transmission length. Please adjust the signal
level from 7 to 0 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 on CV-57J[Tx].
2. Turn “MODE” on the transmitter unit CV-57J[Tx] counterclockwise [] to 7.
3. Connect the HDMI display to “HDMI IN” on the CV-57J[Tx] with a HDMI cable and better not connect to video
source. The LED on the RJ-45 connector of CV-57J[Tx] will dim and light again, which indicates the EDID
learning procedure is complete.
4. Turn “MODE” on the CV-57J[Tx] clockwise [
] from 7 to 0 (for surround sound) or 1 (for stereo). The most
important thing is don’t let the rotary arrow pass through mode 5 and Mode 6 which will erase the EDID just
learned and restore to default EDID.
5. Unplug the HDMI cable from the display and follow the instruction in [Hardware Installation] to set up the
CV-57J and enjoy the experience.

Notice
1. When adjusting the signal level on the receiver unit, please dial the rotary control switch from 7 to 0 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!
2. 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.
3. All HDMI over CAT5 transmission distances are measured using Belden 1583A CAT5e 125MHz UTP cable and
ASTRODESIGN Video Signal Generator VG-859C.
4. 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 [1,000ft]
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.
5. EIA/TIA-568-B termination (T568B) for Cat-5/5e/6 cables is recommended for better performance.
6. 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, which is worsen in long transmission.
7. 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.
8. 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.
