Introduction
The ET-HD0101-MC HDMI over CAT5 Extender with IR Pass-through boosts up
your HDMI transmission distance up to 60m (200ft) in HDTV 720p / 1080i format. With two
low cost Cat-5/5e/6 LAN cables, 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 remote HDMI displays such as HDTV, LCD PC monitors, or projectors. This cost
effective flexibility makes HDCP compliant DVD players or PS3 transmit high quality video
and audio at a greater distance and the minimal cost. In addition, with the embedded
infrared (IR) receiver and blaster to facilitate the IR pass-through, users can enjoy high
quality audio/video and control the HDMI sources from the remote site instantly.
The ET-HD0101-MC includes two units: ET-HD0101-TC as the transmitting unit and
ET-HD0101-RC as the receiving unit. The transmitting unit is used to transfer the
audio/video and IR signals through two low cost Cat-5/5e/6 LAN cables. The receiving unit
is responsible for equalizing transferred HDMI multimedia data and re-sending IR signals
received from the remote control of the HDMI source device. The transmission distance
between the sending and receiving units can be up to 60m (200ft) under HD resolution
(720p or 1080i) or 40m (130ft) under Full HD resolution (1080p). With 8-level equalization
rotary control switch on the receiving unit, users can adjust the strength of the signal level
to the received HDMI signals accordingly, and therefore optimize the transmission length
between HDMI source and display.

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.

Supported IR Data Format
1. Connect your HDMI or DVI source (such as a Blu-ray Disc player) to the transmitting
unit ET-HD0101-TC.
2. Connect the IR blaster to the transmitting unit ET-HD0101-TC, and make the IR
blaster directly point to the IR sensor of the HDMI source device.
3. Connect your HDMI or DVI display (such as a LCD or plasma HDTV) to the receiving
unit ET-HD0101-TC.
4. Connect the IR receiver to the receiving unit ET-HD0101-TC, and make the IR receiver
directly point to the user.
5. Connect two Cat-5/5e/6 cables between the transmitting and receiving units via A/V
SIGNAL and CTRL CHANNEL ports respectively.
6. Make sure your LAN cables are tightly connected and not loose.
7. Plug in 5V DC power cord to the power jack of the receiving unit ET-HD0101-TC.
8. If you see flickering or blinking image on the display, try to 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. Try adjusting the signal level
from 7 to 0 to find the optimal setting for the HDMI over CAT5 transmission.

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 solid 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/1000ft form) can transmit a lot longer signals than
stranded LAN cables (usually in patch cord form). Shielded STP cables are better
suited than unshielded UTP cables. A solid UTP CAT5e cable shows longer
transmission range than stranded STP CAT6 cable. For long extension users, solid
LAN cables are the only viable 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,
one 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 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 LAN cables. For desired resolutions
greater than 1080i or 1280x1024, a Cat-6 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.
