INTRODUCTION
Congratulations on your purchase of the Gefen 2x1 DVI DL Switcher. Your complete
satisfaction is very important to us.
Gefen’s line of KVM (Keyboard Video & Mouse), DVI, USB, switches, extenders, converters and hubs is designed to make computer use more comfortable, more productive
and less expensive. KVM switches allow access to multiple computers from a single
keyboard, while the extenders give the user control over a computer up to 330 feet
away from the work area.
Gefen products offer solutions for noise, space and security concerns, data center control, information distribution, conference room presentation, and school and corporate
training environments.
Our Commitment
Gefen will always offer the finest quality product at the best possible price. Included in
that price is a lifetime of free support from a team of outstanding engineers.
Now you can switch easily and reliably between any combination of two dual link DVI
& USB 2.0 equipped computers (PC or Mac) - using only one keyboard, display and
mouse. The DL cross platform switcher saves space - there’s no need to work on a desk
crowded with double displays, keyboards and mouse devices. It saves time - there’s no
need to move from one monitor to another to access different computers. And, it saves
money - there’s no need to purchase additional displays, mouse devices, keyboards etc.

2x1 DVI DL OPERATION NOTES
Operation Notes
When turning on or rebooting your computers, the DVI DL Switcher must be selected to
the computer that is booting until the computer completes the boot cycle. This step can
be eliminated using the Gefen DVI Detective, which stores the displays EDID.
If you loose your picture when switch from source 1 to source 2 or vice-versa you will
need a DVI Detective.
If you are experiencing USB dropouts try using the switcher just as a USB hub by only
connecting the USB cables from your computers to the switcher. Connect your devices
to the USB out portion of the switcher and connect your display to your computer
directly. Start your computer up and try switching. If your USB devices do come
up normally then you will need a DVI Detective to negotiate the video/USB signals
for faster switching. If they do not come up normally, then you will need to call tech
support.

RMT2-IR INSTALLATION
1. Remove battery cover from the back of the RMT2-IR remote.
2. Verify that dip switches 1 & 2 are in the down (OFF) position.
3. Insert the battery, hold the battery so that you can see the positive side facing up. The
side that is not marked must be facing down.
4. Test the RMT2-IR remote by pressing ONLY one button at a time. The indicator light
on the remote will flash once each time you press a button. WARNING: Do not press
multiple buttons simultaneously and do NOT press buttons rapidly. These actions will
cause the remote to reset and steps 1-4 will have to be repeated.
Note: The RMT2-IR ships with two batteries. One battery is required for operation, the
second battery is complimentary.
Optional RMT-2 wired remote control

IR CODE CONFLICTS
In the event of IR conflicts, please do the following:
1. Remove the battery cover from the back of the RMT 2-IR remote.
2. Locate the Dip Switches above the batteries
3. Switch the Dip Switches on the RMT 2-IR to any of the combinations pictured below.
4. Dip Switches 1 and 2 in the RMT 2-IR correspond with Dip Switches 1 and 2 on the
outside of the 2X1 DVI DL Switcher respectively. Flip the switches on the outside of
the 2x1 DVI DL Switcher to match the same Remote Channel as the RMT 2-IR. The
2x1 DVI DL Switcher is now set to a new IR Code.
