Operation
EDID Emulation
Manual operation
This switch features EDID emulation enabling you to choose the best
display settings available from any of your connected video source
devices.
The EDID display settings are selected based on the first port that
the switch detects the use of beginning with port 1. Once the EDID
display is defined all other EDID information from additional video
source device(s) will be ignored. Please follow the below steps to
specify your EDID selection.
Manual mode enables you to switch between video sources with
push button operation.
Manual operation with selection button
Press the Input Selection button, on the front of the switch to toggle
between each video source device.
The active port LED indicator will light as video sources are switched,
indicating which port is selected.
Manual operation with remote control
Press L1, L2, L3 or L4 on the remote control to switch between HDMI
ports 1, 2, 3 or 4 respectively.
Automatic operation
The HDMI switch features automatic operation that allows the switch
to automatically select the most recently activated or connected
HDMI source device.
Simply connect a new device or turn on an already connected device
to automatically switch video sources.
1. Disconnect the power source to the switch.
2. Determine which video source has the preferred EDID settings to
be shared with your display.
3. Plug your preferred EDID video source into port 1 of your HDMI
switch and ensure this source remains connected at all times.
4. Connect your remaining video source(s) to the switch, and power
the switch back on.
The EDID settings have now been set.
Note: If the switch is rebooted or loses power, EDID settings will
be rescanned and reselected. To avoid this scenario causing your
preferred EDID settings to be lost, it is recommended you connect
your preferred EDID display to Port 1 at all times.
