Due to the limitation of HDMI, the source only can choose one video and one audio format to play, which can be

can support. Therefore, based on the EDID information, media player will pick up the most suitable resolution and
audio setting to the display. In order to faithfully transmit the EDID information from display to the media player,
learning EDID from display to this device is necessary.
5.
What should I do to learn EDID for the Matrix?
Due to the limitation of HDMI, the source device can only output one format of video and audio. In other words,
the source device cannot output 720p and 1080p video at the same time, or output stereo and surround sound at
the same time. Therefore, you may need to manually setup each HDMI input for desirable audio/video output
format. The mechanism of EDID Learning is to pick up the HDMI display with the lowest capability among the
ones you would use for this input source.
For example, if user would like to play the Input-2 upon output-2, output-3 and output-4, and only output-3 cannot
support 1080p (support up to 720p only), please learn EDID from the display connected to the output-3 at the
Input-2 port. Of course, if outpt-3 would get the HDMI signals from every HDMI input, please learn EDID
information from output-3 to all four HDMI inputs. For more information about EDID Learning, please refer to EDID
LEARNING section.
6.
My TV can support 1080p, but why there is no audio?
The Factory Default EDID of this device is 1080p & 2ch audio. However, there would be a problem after you
change to use 1080p & 7.1ch if the TV cannot support 7.1ch audio. Please use the Default EDID, 1080p & 2ch
