B-500-MTRX-230-4x4 Installation Manual

7.3. Installation Tips

Following these tips during the installation process will help guarantee a successful installation.

• Test every cable before use.

Always test cables before use. Field-terminated cables should be checked for continuity after termination to be sure the connectors were installed correctly.

• Label each cable as it is installed.

This will aid in connection setup and programming, and will also make it easier to come back to a job at a later date and immediately know what is connected where.

• Complete the System Layout Chart (page 26) in the back of the manual during installation.

Record the source connected to each input, the output number of each display, and the method of routing signal in the chart for reference during installation and setup. Use it afterward to keep track of equipment in use, open ports for expansion, and to help identify where to troubleshoot issues if they arise later.

• Leave an RS232 connection easily accessible for using the Configuration Utility.

The B-500-MTRX-230-4x4 is equipped with many setup functions that must be accessed by using a PC and the

Configuration Utility. Leave an RS232 cable connected during setup and testing that can be connected to the PC with ease. If the matrix is being controlled by RS232, disconnect the control system while using the Utility.

• Do not fully secure wiring and equipment until setup and testing has been successfully completed.

Wait until all programming, sources, and zones have been set up and thoroughly tested to strap wiring and equipment down, in order to avoid restricting access to connections and settings on the equipment.

• Complete initial setup with all sources connected to the matrix locally.

If a source will be connected to an input by an HDMI extender, complete initial setup by connecting directly to the input with a short HDMI cable. Relocate the source and install the extender after the source has been set up and tested, and then confirm the new arrangement works.

7.4. Switcher Location and Placement

Binary matrix switchers are designed to deliver unsurpassed technology with superior performance. However, where you install the switcher can have a large affect on the performance that you receive, and the life of the unit. Here are some guidelines to follow when installing a B-500-MTRX-230-4x4 Switcher.

• Be sure that the unit is in a well-ventilated area that provides adequate cooling.

• Do not block the cooling vents located on both sides of the unit.

• Do not place the unit on carpeting or any similar material.

• Do not install the unit near a source of heat, or in an extremely humid or wet location.

• If your installation lacks good air flow (such as solid cabinet doors or wall-mounted racks), it may be necessary to create ventilation to allow outside air into the space.

• Allow a minimum of 3” of free air space on either side of the unit. (Does not apply to rack mounting)

• Allow a minimum of 2” of depth behind unit to accommodate cables and connectors.

• When placing on a cabinet shelf, position the unit with all feet resting on a solid level surface.

7.4.1. Rack Installation

The B-500-MTRX-230-4x4 can be mounted in a rack with the front or rear panel facing outward, and will displace 1U of vertical space when installed. Rear-facing installation allows for easy access to the connections for installations that do not require the front panel of the unit to be accessed. Front-facing mounting is useful for applications where the front panel must be accessible or visible.

The rack ears are packaged separately from the matrix switcher in the box. Attach the ears to the sides of the matrix at the front or back using the included screws. Tighten them with a #2 Phillips Screwdriver. It may be necessary to remove the feet from the bottom when rack mounting the matrix switcher. Remove the screws for the feet with a #2 Phillips

Screwdriver, and store the feet and screws together in case they are needed in the future.

Note: The rack ears and mounting holes are only designed to safely hold the weight of the B-500-MTRX-230-4x4.

Do not use the matrix switcher as a shelf for other equipment in the rack.

B-500-MTRX-230-4x4 Installation Manual

7.5. HDMI Input Connections

Each of the four inputs on the B-500-MTRX-230-4X4 utilizes a standard HDMI port for connection. Follow these guidelines when connecting sources to the inputs.

• Always use the shortest cable possible between source equipment and the matrix switcher inputs. Use high speed rated cables to guarantee the best possible performance.

• Avoid using HDMI cable adapters in runs. Always run one unbroken cable when possible.

7.6. Output Connections

The B-500-MTRX-230-4X4 matrix switcher is equipped with one HDMI and one HDBaseT output port for each of the 4 output zones. See the sections below for specific instructions and details for each connection type.

Note: Any input selected on an output zone is played on both the HDMI and HDBaseT outputs for that zone simultaneously.

This can be used to feed the same source to two devices. Read more about this feature below.

7.6.1. Choosing the Correct Output

Outputs to displays can be connected using an HDMI cable or a Cat5e/6 cable and HDBaseT Receiver (with a short

HDMI cable connecting the Receiver to the display). For any run over about 50 feet, or for any output that will utilize IR pass-through, use HDBaseT.

For short runs where HDMI cables can be routed to the display and/or no IR pass-through is needed, or if there is HDMI equipment connected between the matrix output and the display (like an AV receiver), it may be best to use the HDMI output to connect equipment.

In some situations it may be beneficial to use both outputs. If two displays need to be fed the same source at all times, one display can be fed from the HDBaseT output, and one from the HDMI output. In jobs with an AV receiver feeding surround sound to a zone, the audio can be fed to the receiver via HDMI, and an HDBaseT receiver can be used to route video to the display. This is beneficial with AV receivers that have older or less reliable HDMI scaling or pass-through.

7.6.2. HDMI Outputs

To use an HDMI output to feed a display, connect between the output of the matrix switcher and the input of the display.

Follow the guidelines below when using HDMI outputs for the best performance and reliability.

• Always use the shortest cable possible between equipment. Use high speed rated cables to guarantee the best possible performance.

• Avoid using HDMI cable adapters in runs. Always run one unbroken HDMI cable.

• When routing HDMI to an AV receiver for surround sound, then out of the receiver to a display, make sure to set the

AV receiver to an HDMI mode where the signal will not be processed or scaled to a different format. This will avoid signal timing issues that can cause intermittent sync or total loss of sync. Contact the device manufacturer for details regarding HDMI setup.

7.6.3. HDBaseT Outputs

Follow these guidelines when selecting and installing the HDBaseT cable, and then follow the instructions afterward to complete the connections for an output.

7.6.3.1. HDBaseT Wiring Recommendations

Cable Type- Shielded or Unshielded Cat5e/6

Cable Distance Limitations:

Cat5e/ Cat6: Up to 200 ft

Cat6a: Up to 230 ft

• Use at least Category 5e high-quality twisted pair solid conductor cable rated to no less than 350 Mhz bandwidth.

The higher the cable standard, the better it will perform.

• For the best results install a shielded cable. This will prevent signal dropout and artifacts from being caused by electromagnetic and radio interference (EMI/RFI) from ceiling fans, appliances and electric motors.

• Use no more than two 5 meter or shorter, solid or stranded, 568B terminated patch cables in the run. Use shielded patch cables if the run is shielded to maintain shield continuity.

• Use no more than two keystones or couplers in the run. Use shielded keystones or couplers with shielded cable to maintain continuity.

• Cleanly terminate all cable ends and test every cable used before connecting the extender to avoid troubleshooting termination problems later.

• Mark each end of the HDBaseT cable with the included labels to avoid confusion later.

Connector Type- RJ45

• Use a high quality RJ45 connector that matches or exceeds the standard of the cable in use. Shielded connectors must be used with shielded cables, and must maintain continuity of the shield to both connectors to protect from interference.

• We highly discourage the use of “EZ” style, open end RJ45s with HDMI extenders.

• Always terminate RJ45 connectors in the HDBaseT signal path to the 568B termination standard as required by

HDBaseT standards.

The diagram above illustrates a typical installation with a B-500-MTRX-230-4X4 where all of the equipment is being controlled by a control system that uses RF (Radio Frequency) remotes in each output zone.

• The RF remotes transmit commands back to the control system which then sends commands to each device being controlled. Custom programming by the installer sets the control system up to automatically switch inputs and outputs in the matrix switcher as needed, so the end user only has to select the source they want to watch.

• Each display (only one is pictured for reference) requiring IR control is connected to the system via the HDBaseT output of the matrix switcher. Cat5e/6 cable connects to a B-500-RX-230-IR Receiver, which is attached to the display via HDMI for signal. An IR flasher connected to the IR flasher port sends the IR commands to the display.

Sources are directly controlled by the control system.

• IR control for displays is routed from the control system to the matrix switcher using 3.5mm mono mini cables plugged into IR INPUT TO ROOM ports. The commands pass from a matrix switcher port to the HDBaseT output of the same number. In the diagram the mono cable used to send commands to the output 4 zone is plugged into IR

INPUT TO ROOM port 4. This allows discrete control of each display connected, even if they are models with the same codes.

• Some displays and projectors can be controlled by other methods than IR. The projector pictured features IP control, so it is receiving commands from the control system over an Ethernet connection. An HDMI cable is connecting it to the matrix switcher output since it is installed close enough to the equipment and requires no IR flasher.

• When the system is in use, if two outputs are connected to the same input, the source will change on both outputs with any command sent since it can’t send two HDMI streams at once. This must be considered when deciding on the sources to connect for distribution.

Example: In a home with four displays connected, if users in every room want to watch satellite on different channels, there must be four satellite receivers set up as sources. With custom programming, each output can be programmed to use only one of the satellite source inputs, giving each output a dedicated cable box, while allowing other less-used sources to connect to any output.

The diagram above illustrates a typical installation with a B-500-MTRX-230-4X4 where all of the equipment is being controlled by IR remotes in each output zone.

• In each room with a connected display, an entry-level universal IR remote is being used to control the display and sources in use. Custom programming set up in each remote by the installer sends IR commands out of the remote meant for the display device in the room, the sources, and the matrix switcher simultaneously. The matrix commands are programmed to be sent automatically as needed so the end user only has to select the source they want to watch.

• To make this system work seamlessly, two advanced IR options have been enabled in the matrix switcher

Configuration Utility “Other Settings” menu: IR Source Routing and IR Matrix Control from room.

o IR Source Routing allows the commands from the room to be routed directly to the source selected to be displayed in the room. This simplifies IR routing because only one flasher has to connect to the source.

o IR Matrix Control sets the matrix switcher so that any command sent from any HDBaseT output to control the matrix is automatically received internally, eliminating the need for an external connection back to the matrix for control. See Section 9. Advanced Setup Using the Configuration Utility on page 20 for more information on changing these settings.

• When the commands are sent, the display device is controlled directly by the remote. The commands for the matrix switcher and sources are picked up by the IR receiver connected to the B-500-RX-230-IR and sent back to the correct IR OUTPUT TO SOURCE port and to the matrix.

• When the system is in use, if two outputs are connected to the same input, the source will change on both outputs with any command sent since it can’t send two HDMI streams at once. This must be considered when deciding on the sources to connect for distribution.

Example: In a home with four displays connected, if users in every room want to watch satellite on different channels, there must be four satellite receivers set up as sources. With custom programming, each output can be programmed to use only one of the satellite source inputs, giving each output a dedicated cable box while allowing other less-used sources to connect to any output.

B-500-MTRX-230-4x4 Installation Manual

8. EDID Configuration

The displays used within an installation usually vary from room to room, and some may not support all resolutions available from a source. It is necessary to make sure sources will provide a video and audio format compatible with all connected displays programmed to use them. To accomplish this, the B-500-MTRX-230-4X4 includes built-in EDID management for each source input. The stored EDID is per source, so all display locations will see the same resolution and have the same audio format when that source is selected.

Note: Source is only able to output one video resolution and one audio format.

Note: The default EDID for each input is always 1080p with 2 channel stereo audio, since this format is accepted by most displays with no issues.

The following sections explain configuring EDIDs via the included IR Remote. Before configuring the EDID, be sure to refer to the source and display manuals for available features and resolutions for each device. For more information about using the included remote, see Section 11.1 IR Remote on page 21.

While all EDID configurations are available via the remote, the Configuration Utility can be used for faster setup.

Download the Configuration Utility and manual on the Support Tab for the B-500-MTRX-230-4X4 at www.SnapAV.com.

What is EDID? EDID, or Extended Display Identification Data, is a stream of information sent from a display to a source when the two devices are connected to tell the source what video and audio formats the display can use. This prevents sources from outputting media that won’t work with the display.

8.1. Source Setup

Check each source and confirm that the audio format and video resolution are set so that they will change based on the

EDID. Normally this setting is called “Auto” or similar.

Note: EDID setup is not required if the source supports setting one fixed video resolution and audio format.

8.2. Display Setup

It is recommended that Consumer Electronics Control (CEC) be turned OFF in all displays when using the B-500-MTRX-

230-4X4. This will provide for proper communication of video/audio signals and allow EDIDs to function at their optimum performance. Refer to the display’s manual for information on how to turn this function OFF.

8.3. Auto EDID Configuration

The quickest and easiest method for configuration is to use Auto EDID. When this mode is used the matrix switcher looks at the EDID from each of the connected displays. It uses the highest common video resolution to create a new

EDID and saves that EDID in all of the inputs.

Note: Auto EDID sets audio to 2ch stereo for all inputs regardless of the capability of the connected displays. If multi-

channel audio is desired, embedded EDIDs or Learned EDIDs will need to be used.

When to use Auto EDID

• All sources will be available on all displays.

• As a first step to configuration, following up with advanced methods for particular displays and dedicated sources.

Note: For advanced EDID configuration when using a legacy display and/or dedicated sources, use embedded EDIDs

or learning as described in the following sections.

8.3.1. How to Configure Auto EDID

To set up Auto EDID configuration, first make sure that all displays are powered on and connected to the matrix switcher.

Then, press the following remote buttons in this order. Be sure to press each button within 10 seconds of the previous button-press to prevent the command from resetting.

8.4. Embedded EDID Configuration

In addition to the automatic configuration method, EDIDs in the B-500-MTRX-230-4X4 can be set to inputs manually by selecting an EDID from the embedded list (default EDIDs programmed into the matrix switcher).

The matrix switcher contains eight ‘embedded’ EDIDs that may be assigned to inputs. These EDIDs define groups of video and audio capabilities that are useful for configuring sources in most systems.

Explanation of Embedded EDIDs

Video Resolution in the Embedded EDIDs is the highest resolution a connected source will output. That is, if the source is capable of [email protected] it will be required by EDIDs 1-6 to provide that resolution. However, if the source is only capable of 1080i it will output 1080i, etc. It is assumed that any display that can accept the specified video resolution can also accept all standard video resolutions less than that specified.

Color Depth is the maximum number of bits used to encode color. 24bit color depth is 8bits per color (red, blue, green).

36 bit color depth is 12 bits per color (red, blue, green).

3D indicates that the source can output 3D if it is available in the content.

Audio Format indicates the maximum number of audio channels, as well as the audio format that the source is allowed to output. For an Embedded EDID with 7.1ch Audio Format, the source device will output the highest audio possible based on the content. For example, if 7.1ch is not available and 5.1ch is available, then the output will be 5.1ch.The same is true if 2ch stereo is the only audio available from the source. Embedded EDIDs with 2ch stereo will limit output to that audio format regardless of what is available in the content.

Embedded EDIDs 7 and 8 are provided for legacy displays that can only accept resolutions up to a maximum of 1080i /

720p. The 1080i is listed first since almost all older HD displays can accept 1080i but not all can accept 720p. For these two Embedded EDIDs, (7&8) the source will output 1080i. Should 1080i not be available, the source will output 720p.

Note: There is a possibility that 720p may not work for a very small number of older displays that may still be in use. It will be necessary to use a Learned EDID from the display to store in the Input EDID of any sources that will be routed to that display if 720p is not supported. See Section 8.5. EDID Learning on page 18 for directions to set a learned EDID.

When to Use Embedded EDIDs

• For most current displays and sources, using embedded EDID #2 is recommended unless multi channel audio is needed. In that case, use embedded #3. The other embedded EDIDs are useful for supporting legacy equipment.

8.5. EDID Learning

For more advanced EDID configuration, learning can be used to assign EDIDs directly from displays to one or more inputs. This is useful when the system contains a display that cannot accept the highest resolution available from sources, but all sources need to be available to all displays.

Note: EDIDs can be learned from displays connected via the HDBaseT or the HDMI output.

When to Use Learned EDIDs

• An older display does not work properly with any of the embedded EDIDs.

• When the source is a PC it may be necessary to use a learned EDID.

• Learning EDID to a single input

Notes about EDID Status

• If the EDID was learned from an output, the exact EDID specifications will not be shown, but the output number will be identified. Review the specifications of the display attached to the output to determine its compatible resolutions.

• If the second digit (the Input being queried) has a dot after it, then the first digit is the EDID number from the

Embedded EDID table.

• If the second digit (the Input being queried) does not have a dot after it, the first digit is the Output the EDID was learned from (step 4 from example above).

9. Advanced Setup Using the Configuration Utility

There are several setup options available that can only be modified using the matrix switcher Configuration Utility.

These items are defaulted to the most common settings that should work in most installations.

The Configuration Utility and manual are available for download on the Support Tab of the B-500-MTRX-230-4X4 product page at www.SnapAV.com. Download and run the Utility to gain access to these settings by connecting to the matrix and clicking “Other Settings.”

9.1. IR Source Routing

Default Setting:

Yes

The IR Source Routing feature allows discrete control of the source selected from any connected HDBaseT output using an IR receiver plugged into the B-500-RX-230-IR. This setting is only relevant when using in-room IR remotes to control sources connected to the matrix switcher. When set to Yes, the matrix will route commands from the HDBaseT Receiver to the IR Output to Source port that matches the source input number currently selected on that output.

When set to No, commands will be sent only out of the IR Output to Source port that matches the HDBaseT Receiver number from which it originated.

9.2. IR Front Panel IR Enable

Default Setting:

Yes

This setting controls the operation of the front panel IR receiver built into the B-500-MTRX-230-4X4. This should be disabled if using the SYSTEM IR IN port to control the matrix switcher via IR, or if the matrix switcher is missing or receiving extra commands during use (stray IR interfering with the port).

9.3. Matrix Control from Room Enable

Default Setting:

Yes

The Matrix Control from Room Enable option allows Matrix Control IR commands to be sent from the room as if a source were being controlled. Turn this option off if the matrix switcher is being controlled by any other method than in-room IR.

Note: To use Matrix Control from Room, it is recommended to program a universal remote control with discrete commands for matrix control to keep in each zone, rather than using the included IR remote or commands learned from it.

Go to the Support Tab of the B-500-MTRX-230-4X4 product page at www.SnapAV.com to see and download the available IR codes and drivers for IR remote programming.

9.4. Front Panel Power Button Active

Default Setting:

Yes

The Front Panel Power Button can be disabled if desired. Disable the button when the matrix switcher is programmed to be on at all times or in jobs where turning off the matrix from the switcher can cause issues with control.

10. Firmware Update

Binary may occasionally release new firmware for the B-500-MTRX-230-4X4 to address new standards and technology.

It will never be necessary to perform an update to an existing, correctly functioning system, but during installation or service it is recommended to check the installed version to be sure it is the newest available.

For full update instructions, see the section titled, “Firmware Update” in the Configuration Utility manual. New firmware, the Configuration Utility, and the Configuration Utility manual are available for download on the Support Tab of the

B-500-MTRX-230-4X4 product page at www.SnapAV.com.

12. Troubleshooting

If issues arise during installation or testing of the B-500-MTRX-230-4X4, follow these guidelines to troubleshoot. Use the System Layout chart on the next page to record a description of each part of the system. If a problem cannot be solved using the methods listed here, fill out the System Layout Chart as completely as possible and contact Binary Tech

Support for assistance at (866) 838-5052.

12.1. General Troubleshooting Guidelines

• Always set up the connections between the matrix switcher and all equipment before attempting EDID setup or testing video and audio to be sure that all displays have been accounted for.

• Only change one part of a setup at a time when troubleshooting. Changing more than one variable may lead to inconsistent results.

• When any issue arises with video or audio, inspect the cable connections first. Most issues arise from a connector not being fully seated in its port or a poorly terminated Cat5e/6 cable.

• Try to simplify the signal route when troubleshooting. Remove any additional equipment from between the source and display as possible, and add one piece back until the issue re-appears.

• If a source will not work with all displays, or a display will only work with some sources, the issue is usually either an incorrect EDID for an input, or a source menu is set incorrectly.

• Swap devices to different ports on the matrix to determine whether issues follow the devices or the ports in use.

Issues following sources are almost always related to the internal settings of the source. Set the source output to adjust automatically for the EDID of the display. Then set up the EDIDs using a learned EDID from an output with a “problem” display, or selecting an embedded EDID compatible with all of the connected displays’ supported resolutions.

12.2. No Signal from Source to any Display

If a source will not send a signal to any connected display, it is probably due to an issue with the cable in use, the EDID setting for the input, or the settings in the source:

• Swap the cable between the source and the input of the matrix for a short, working HDMI cable.

• Test the source using a different input. If the source works with displays when connected to a different input, the

EDID needs to be changed to one that is compatible with all displays.

• If the problem follows the source, either its output settings are not compatible with the displays in use, or the source is not working correctly. Test the source and set it up to work by connecting directly to a display with an HDMI cable.

12.3. No Signal from any Source to any Display

If a display connected to a matrix output will not sync to any source, the issue is usually either an incompatible EDID on all inputs or a problem with the cable connecting the display to the matrix switcher:

• Learn the EDID of the “problem” output to all inputs.

• Re-terminate the HDBaseT cable (if applicable) and test it for continuity, and try a different HDBaseT receiver.

Replace any HDMI cables with known working units.

• Bypass all other equipment and wire directly from the output of the matrix to the input of the display with the shortest

HDMI cable possible to eliminate other equipment as the cause of the issue.

• Connect the display wiring to a different matrix switcher output.

• Connect each source directly to the display using an HDMI cable and test to be sure the display and its input port work correctly with sources. If this works there may HDBaseT or HDMI wiring issues.

• Use a known working HDBaseT receiver and a test run of Cat5e/6 cable outside the wall to help identify HDBaseT issues. If the B-500-RX-230-IR HDBaseT Receiver is being used, see its manual for more troubleshooting tips directly related to HDBaseT.

B-500-MTRX-230-4x4 Installation Manual

12.4. Audio Issues

If a display on an output using 2 channel stereo audio is switched to an input with an EDID set to surround sound audio format, audio at the display speakers may be garbled, missing pieces of the audio track, or muted altogether. This symptom indicates that the display cannot down-convert the audio stream from the source. To fix this issue, the source must be set to output only 2 channel stereo audio.

This may result in less-than-ideal audio quality in zones with surround systems; however with some sources like cable or satellite boxes, surround sound audio isn’t critical to the end user experience, so these sources can send stereo audio through the speaker system with no perceived difference. For sources like Blu-ray players or streaming devices where sound quality is critical, the compromise would be to add a second source of the same type to the system so that one is set to stereo and one is set to surround sound.
