INTRODUCTION
Atlona’s AT-HD-V40SRS HDMI 1.3 over Single CAT5 Extender 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.
The AT-HD-V40SRS includes two units: Sender (AT-HD-V40SS) and Receiver (AT-HD-V40RS) units.
The Sender unit is used to capture the input HDMI/DVI signals and carry the signals through one RJ-45
connector into one cost effective CAT-5/5e/6 LAN cable. The Receiver unit is responsible for equalizing the sent TMDS multimedia data. The transmission distance between the sender and receiver units
can be up to 60m (200ft) under HD (720p/1080i) or 40m (130ft) under Full HD (1080p). With an 8-level
equalization control knob on the receiving unit, users can adjust the equalization strength to the received TMDS signals accordingly, and therefore optimize the transmission distance between source and
destination.
FEATURES:
• State-of-the-art Silicon Image (founder of HDMI) chipset embedded for upmost compatibility and reliability
• HDMI 1.3c compliant
• Extend the transmission length up to 60m (200ft) from the HDMI sources under HD resolution (1080i
or 720p at 24-bit color depth)
• Extend the transmission length up to 40m (130ft) from the HDMI sources under Full HD resolution
(1080p at 24-bit color depth)
• Extend the transmission length up to 20m (65ft) from the HDMI sources under Full HD resolution
(1080p at 36-bit color depth)
• HDCP 1.1 compliant
• Minimize the cable skew by adjustable 8-level equalization control
• Pure unaltered uncompressed 7.1ch digital HDMI over LAN cable transmission
• DTS-HD and Dolby True HD high bit rate audio support
• Allows cascading
• Wall mounting housing design for easy installation
• Perfectly integrated with other HDMI over CAT5 series products
Note: The length depends on the characteristics and quality of the cables. Higher resolutions and longer transmission distances require low skew cables (<25ns/100m) for best performance. Unshielded CAT6 with metal
RJ-45 connectors is recommended.

6 = [Default Mode] – uses default EDID2 with video supported up to 1080p
7 = [EDID Learning Mode] – learns EDID3 from the display
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 Sender 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.
2.For desirable 1080p video output, please follow the instructions below:
Step 1 – Please set the rotary arrow on Sender 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 Sender can learn the EDID information from the connected display. The LED on the RJ45 connector of Sender 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 the HDMI/DVI source (such as a Blu-ray Disc player) to the Sender unit AT-HDV40SS.
2.Connect the HDMI/DVI display (such as a LCD TV) to the Receiver unit AT-HD-V40RS.
3.Connect a CAT-5/5e/6 LAN cable between the transmitting and receiving units.
4.Make sure this CAT-5/5e/6 LAN cable is tightly connected and not loose.
5.Plug in 5V DC power cord to the power jack of the receiving unit AT-HD-V40RS.
6.Plug in 5V DC power cord to the power jack of the transmitting unit AT-HD-V40SS.
7.If a flickering or a blinking image is seen, try to adjust the rotational switch to improve the
cable skew. 0 stands for the strongest HDMI signal level while 7 stands for the weakest. Try
adjusting the signal level from 7 to 0 to accommodate the length of HDMI over CAT5 transmission.
EDID LEARNING
1.Turn on AT-HD-V40SS.
2.Turn the Mode of AT-HD-V40SS to 7.
3.Connect the HDMI display to the “HDMI IN” of AT-HD-V40SS with a HDMI cable. The LED
on the RJ-45 connector of AT-HD-V40SS will dim and light again, which indicates the EDID
learning procedure is complete.
4.Turn the Mode of AT-HD-V40SS 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 AT-HD-V40SRS and enjoy the experience.

NOTICE
1.If the DVI or HDMI device requires the EDID information, please use EDID Reader/Writer to
retrieve and provide DVI/HDMI EDID information.
2.All HDMI over CAT5 transmission distances are measured using Belden 1583A CAT5e
125MHz LAN cable and ASTRODESIGN Video Signal Generator VG-859C.
3.The transmission length is largely affected by the type of LAN cables, the type of HDMI
sources, and the type of HDMI display. The testing result shows solid LAN cables (usually in bulk cable 300m or 1000ft form) can transmit a lot longer signals than stranded LAN
cables (usually in patch cord form). Shielded STP cables are better suit than unshielded UTP
cables. A solid UTP CAT5e cable shows longer transmission length than stranded STP CAT6
cable. For long extension users, solid LAN cables are your only choice.
4.EIA/TIA-568-B termination (T568B) for LAN cables is recommended for better performance.
5.To reduce the interference among the unshielded twisted pairs of wires in LAN cable, you
can use shielded LAN cables to improve EMI problems, which is worsen in long transmission.
6.Because the quality of the LAN cables has the major effects in how long transmission distance will be made and how good is the received display, the actual transmission length is
subject to your LAN cables. For resolution greater than 1080i or 1280x1024, a CAT6 cable is
recommended.
7.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.
