Model: 33-12500
INTRODUCTION
Thank you for your purchase of the Stellar Labs Model 33-12500 Matrix Switcher. This switcher is
designed to simplify the use of multiple high definition A/V devices in a home theater system.
The 33-12500 Matrix Switcher is ideal for Home Theater, gaming room, HTiB (or Sound bar) devices,
and even in public installations such as sports bars and retail displays, anywhere that two video
displays are intended to share multiple high definition sources.
Coaxial and TOSLINK audio outputs are also provided, on video output A, making it simple to
separately send digital audio of the four source devices to a separate audio system, without having to
occupy an HDMI connection.
With the splitter and matrix functions, users can share the same source device to two HD video
devices, or select from the four sources independently.
This unit provides eight different video format detection modes.

NOTE:
✔ If you want to select or distribute 3D source to either one or two of the displays, please make
sure all of the sink devices support the same HDMI 3D video format as the source. The 3D
image cannot be delivered to TVs which do not support 3D video format.
✔ Output-A supports an unmodified SPDIF (coaxial/optical) digital audio output. Users can use it
to connect to a Home Theater system which supports a coaxial/optical digital audio input.
✔ The output of the SPDIF (coaxial/optical) digital audio format is based on the HDMI Output-A.
If the sink devices (HDTV or Projector), which connected to Output A and Output B, can only
support stereo audio, the coaxial/optical digital audio may also send out PCM stereo audio.
✔ For audio output format adjustment: (Please refer to the source device manual.)
®
®
1. Check the supported audio format of the feature film. (Stereo, DTS 5.1, and Dolby Digital
5.1...etc)
®
2. Set the audio output format of source device. Ex. uncompressed PCM or Bit Stream (Dolby
®
Digital 5.1, DTS 5.1 ...etc.)
3. Select the output of audio format and language from the main feature menu.
®
✔ For HD quality audio (Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD Master AudioTM), or other audio formats that
need high bandwidth for audio transmission, please use HDMI connection for the HD audio
transmission.
✔ If the output audio format is not supported by the sink device (HDTV, Home Theater receiver,
Sound Bar Speaker), you may hear noise form the speakers or you will not hear any sound
from the speakers.
✔ If you want to use a Home Theater System or other speaker system for audio output, it is
recommended to mute the audio speaker of the HDTV.
✔ It is recommended all the connected sink devices (HDTV, Projector, Home Theater
Receiver…etc.) and source devices (Blue-ray Player, PS3…etc.) support the same highest
resolution, color deep and audio format.
CONNECTION & OPERATION
Connection
Step 1: Connect the DC 5V power adaptor to the Matrix Switcher.
Step 2: Connect the HDMI cables from the HD sources (PS3, DVD player, Blue-ray Player…etc) to the
input ports of the Matrix Switcher.
Step 3: Connect the HDMI cables from your HD display (HDTV or projector) to the output port (Port A
or Port B) of the Matrix Switcher.
Output Port A supports additional SPDIF digital audio output. If your Home Theater (or Sound
System) doesn’t support HDMI input, you can use a coaxial/optical audio cable to connect the
digital audio to your Home Theater (or Sound System).
Step 4: After you finish the connection, the Active-A (or Active-B) indication LED (red), and input
indication LED (green) will light.
Operation
Matrix Mode:

Splitter Mode:
Sharing same HD source to both outputs
A.
If source devices do not support the function of Auto Detection & Auto Adjustment, please
set the output audio and video signal of the source device first, and make sure the setting can be
supported by the sink devices. For example, if user set the source to send out a 1080p video
4
signal, but the sink device can only support up to 720p or 1080i, you will not have picture the sink
device.
B.
If source devices support the function of Auto Detection & Auto Adjustment, the source
device will auto adjust the output audio and video signal to the optimal standard based on the
following 8 different modes. Users can also set the audio/video output signal by themselves.
Please make sure the setting can be supported by the sink devices.

TROUBLESHOOTING
1. When there is no picture presented, please:
❧
Make sure the direct connection from the source device to the display device without the
HDMI Switcher is working.
❧
Check all connectors connect well or not.
❧
Check the connecting cable is damaged or not.
❧
Check the power of matrix switcher (or reset the matrix switcher)
2. When there is only picture displayed and without sound:
❧ Check the cable connection to see if it fits properly.
❧ Check your cable to see if it supports video transmission only (DVI) or it is damaged.
❧ HDCP may not match very well at first connection; please reset your matrix switcher.
❧
Do you connect any output to your video recorder? HDCP will lock up audio part.
3. When use a coaxial/optical audio cable to connect the matrix switcher to a Home Theater System,
no sound is delivered by the Home Theater System.
❧
Please check the connection.
❧
The coaxial/optical audio cable needs to be connected to the coaxial/optical audio input port
of the Home Theater System.
❧
The audio input selection of the Home Theater System needs to be selected to a
corresponding coaxial/optical audio input.
❧
Please make sure the output audio format can be supported by the Home Theater System.
®
®
®
If the audio format is in Dolby or DTS format, the Home Theater needs to support Dolby or
®
DTS decoding.
4. When use a coaxial/optical audio cable to connect the matrix switcher to a Home Theater System,
the coaxial/optical audio output only delivers stereo audio signal to the Home Theater System.
❧
Because the HDTV (or Projector) which connected to the Output-A can only support stereo
audio signal, the coaxial/optical audio output will send out the audio signal based on the Output
A.
❧
Please refer to the page 3 for audio output format adjustment.
5. When resolution could not show in 1080p.
❧
Make sure your sources and displays are fully supporting 1080p.
❧
Make sure your HDMI cables are capable of transmitting 1080P video signal.
6. When 3D content could not be shown on your display.
❧
Please make sure your sources and displays are 3D supported devices and also support the
same 3D format.
❧
Please check the play mode of Blue-ray player has been set 3D mode or AUTO mode for
video output.
❧
Please make sure the video content is 3D content.
7. If the presented picture is not a proper 3D image, please check whether the 3D format of your
sources (Blue-ray player, PS3, etc.) and displays (TV or projector) are correct setting.
8. If the presented picture is symmetric, which showed with up and down or right and left symmetric
image, please check whether the TV or projector supports 3D display function and make sure the
function is enabled. If the TV or projector does not support 3D video format, please turn off the 3D
play mode of sources.
