Introduction
The HSW44C 4x4 HDMI Matrix Switch with CAT5 Output provides the most flexible and cost effective solution
in the market to route high definition video sources plus multi-channel (up to 7.1-channel) digital audio from any
of the four HDMI sources to the remote displays at the same time. Through low cost CAT5/5e/6 LAN cables, not
only high quality video and audio can be transmitted to the display sites, but also users can switch among 4 HDMI
sources using the push button or remote control. With single power design at the source site, each remote
module is easily installed without power supply. Furthermore, the built-in IR extension function makes users at
display site access the DVD player, PS3 or any HDMI equipped devices directly!

EDID Learning & Stereo Mode5 – for learning EDID from the
display while enforcing stereo output if any HDTV cannot play
surround sound normally
Note
1
If the HDTV shows video but without audio, please try to set audio mode to stereo.
2
Factory default of SW1-SW4: Pin#1-OFF [] & Pin#2- OFF [] for 1080p with stereo.
3
If you encounter any unsolved audio/video output problem during system installation, please
turn any SW1-SW4 to Pin#1-OFF[] & Pin#1-ON[], for safe mode to enforce the most
compatible 720p stereo output for system check. However, the safe mode cannot be initiated if
your HDMI source is set to enforce 1080p output. In this case, please reconfigure your HDMI
source to all resolution output for troubleshooting.
4
Bypass means the matrix will maintain playing the original format of HDMI signals in video
and perhaps audio. By setting at this mode, the users may encounter compatibility issue
among different kinds of HDMI sources and displays. If you cannot get the audio and/or
video output normally at the system installation, please change the DIP switch setting to
default mode or even safe mode to verify the functionality of the device.
5
Set Pin#1 at ON[] first then connect the HDMI Input to HDTV through a HDMI cable. Wait
for 20 seconds. The EDID learning procedure will be finished. If you want to learn the EDID
from another HDTV, you must set Pin#1 at OFF[] first and repeat this procedure.

Firmware Update
Warning!
There could be unexpected consequences resulted from inappropriate firmware update
operation. Please do it with caution.
1. Please unzip the Matrix_Firmware_Update.zip into your designated folder.
2. Please turn off the power of the HSW44C and set DIP location of [SW Main] at Pin#1-ON(), Pin#2-ON(),
Pin#3-OFF(), & Pin#4-OFF().
3. Please execute the file Matrix_Firmware_Update.exe
4. In the pop-up window, at [Select Chip], please select W78E365.
5. In the pop-up window, at [Select File], please choose the BIN file in the designated folder, as shown in the
picture.
17
6. In the pop-up window, please select the [File Format] to Binary.
7. Please make sure your PC has direct connection to the RS-232 port of the HSW44C, as shown in the picture
(left), that in [Communication Setting] the onlne status should be “Wait to connect”. If the RS-232 connection
is not firmly established, you will see the online status is “Disconnect.” If so, please check the RS-232
connection until the online status becomes “Wait to Connect.”
8. Please turn on the HSW44C. The firmware update process will automatically initiate. If nothing happens,
please turn off and turn on the HSW44C again to initiate the automatic firmware update.
9. The firmware update process is successful if you see the [Information] window pops up to inform you that
the process is complete. If you see the [Error] window pops up, please turn off the HSW44C and turn it on
again. If necessary, please redo the whole sequences 1-9.
10. The message “Program: OK!” means the firmware update process is successful. If you see the [Error]
window pops up after the message [Program: OK!], please ignore it.
11. Turn off HSW44C. Set DIP location of [SW Main] at Pin#1-OFF(), Pin#2-OFF(), Pin#3-ON(), &
Pin#4-OFF().
12. Turn the HSW44C back on and return to normal operation.
18
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 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 suit than unshielded UTP cables. A solid UTP CAT5e cable shows longer transmission length than
stranded STP CAT6 cable. For long extension users, solid LAN cables are your only 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, you 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 effects in how long transmission distance will be made
and how good is the received display, the actual transmission length is subject to your LAN cables. For
resolution greater than 1080i or 1280x1024, a CAT6 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.
8. The HSMR has been tested extensively and found that it doesn’t require external power supply. If in rare
situation you find it cannot work with the HSW44C, please use any +5V power adapter to plug in the power
jack and see if it can work. If not, please contact your technical support for further service.
9. Additional IR remote controls and IR emitter cables can be purchased as optional accessories to control the
HDMI sources located separately.
