The MT103-116 is a high-resolution 2-in 2-out
CAT-5 to VGA receiver. The MT103-116 card
receives computer video signals over twisted pair
CAT-5 (Category 5, 5e, 6) type cable that are
transmitted by a compatible transmitter card such
as the ALTINEX MT103-115 or stand alone
DA1920SX transmitter. The MT103-116 converts
differential signals to single ended video signals
and distributes the source to large screen
projectors or other displays.

The MT103-116 offers two RJ-45 female input
connectors and two fully buffered 15-pin HD female
output connectors. The MT103-116 can receive
signal resolutions from VGA thru UXGA depending
upon the cable length and quality. Used together
with an ALTINEX CAT-5 transmitter, the maximum
cable distance is approximately 500 feet/152
meters for VGA (640 x 480, 60 Hz refresh rate) and
250 feet/76.2 meters for UXGA (1600 x 1200, 60
Hz refresh rate). Built-in equalization controls allow
the image to be fine tuned based on the cable
length. Please see the complete specifications for
other resolutions and their maximum cable lengths.

Cause 1:
The source has a problem.
Solution:
Check the source and make sure
that there is a signal present and all
source connections are correct. If
the source is working and there is
still no display, see Cause 2.
Cause 2:
Cable connections are incorrect.
Solution:
We have carefully tested and have found no
problems in the supplied MT103-116; however, we
would like to offer suggestions for the following:
Make sure the cables are connected
properly. Also, make sure the
continuity and wiring are good. If
there is still no display, see Cause 3.
Cause 3:
The display has a problem.
7.1 LED IS NOT LIT
Solution:
Make sure that the display is
powered. If there is still no display,
call ALTINEX at (714) 990-2300.
There is only one adjustment necessary to operate
the MT103-116. The adjustment is for equalization
on long cable runs. It is adjustable according to the
cable length.
The unit will operate successfully as long as cables
are attached properly and other technical
specifications are followed.

9.2 CONTACT INFORMATION
Solution 1: Test the card in other slots. If other

cage slot. The card cage may
require service. Call ALTINEX at

Solution 2: Take any other known good card
with an LED and verify that the slot
used is good by seeing if the other
card’s LED lights in that slot. If it
lights, then the original card may be
the source of the problem. Call
