The GefenTV Wireless for HDMI Multi-Room Solution
The GefenTV Wireless for HDMI - Multi-Room Solution sends high definition audio
and video to any HDTV display up to 100 feet (30 meters) away. It extends HDMI from
computers, set-top boxes, Blu-ray players, and other audio/video sources to a remote
HDTV display. The Wireless for HDMI - Multi-Room Solution supports resolutions up
to 1080p Full HD along with support for up to 7.1 channels of LPCM, and up to 5.1
channels of Dolby® TrueHD, and DTS-HD Master Audio™. The included IR emitter can
be connected to the Sender unit and placed by the Hi-Def source, allowing full control of
the source from another room simply by pointing the IR remote at the Receiver unit. The
Wireless for HDMI - Multi-Room Solution transmits through walls and does not require
line-of-sight for good reception. Additional features allow multiple units using the included
handheld remote control.
How It Works
Connect one of the included HDMI cables from the Hi-Def source to the Sender unit.
Connect the other included HDMI cable from the Receiver unit to the HDTV display.
Connect the included power supplies to the Sender and Receiver units and to available
electrical outlets. Connect the included IR Emitter to the Sender unit and place it near the
IR sensor window of the device to be controlled. Power-up the source and the display.
Within approximately one minute, the “Video” indicators on both units should now glow
solid blue to indicate a successful connection between the Sender and Receiver unit. If the
Sender and Receiver units do not pair automatically, the LEDs on the Sender will continue
to blink. Navigate through the on-screen menu and have the Receiver unit look for a
Sender unit. If the remote is not available, you can press and hold the recessed pairing
button on the Receiver with a paper clip until its Link LED stops blinking and goes dark.
Press and hold its recessed pairing button on the Sender unit with a paper clip until the Link
LED stops blinking and goes dark. If navigating the menu using the remote, press the OK
button on the IR remote. A message indicating that the Sender and the Receiver units have
been paired will appear on the display. Point the source’s IR remote at the IR window on
the Receiver unit to control the source* that is placed near the Sender unit.

FCC STATEMENT
This device complies with part 15 of the FCC
Rules. Operation is subject to the following
two conditions: (1) This device may not cause
harmful interference, and (2) this device must
accept any interference received, including
interference that may cause undesired
operation
INSTRUCTION TO THE USER
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a class
B digital device, pursuant to part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed
to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential
installation. This equipment generates, uses and can radiate radio frequency
energy and if not installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may
cause harmful interference to radio communications. However, there is no
guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this
equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which
can be determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged
to try to correct the interference by one or more of the following measures:
•
Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna
•
Increase the separation between the equipment and Receiver unit
•
Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which
the Receiver unit is connected
•
Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
In order to maintain compliance with FCC regulations, shielded cables must be
used with this equipment. Operation with non-approved equipment or unshielded
cables is likely to result in interference to radio and TV reception. The user is
cautioned that changes and modifications made to the equipment without the
approval of the manufacturer could void the user’s authority to operate this
equipment.

•
DVI-D Support
•
Gefen recommends placing both units into the provided stands, with
the Gefen logo pointing down, to help maintain the strongest possible
transmission signal.
•
Interference caused by other RF products may reduce performance and
reception distance.
•
Use with multiple Sender units:
»»
Can be used with a single Receiver unit to provide source-switching
capability.
»»
Up to 8 Senders are supported. Local RF interference can limit the
number of Sender units that can be used. Each Sender unit needs
to be placed at least 1 meter apart for optimum performance.
»»
US Models: Up to 4 pairs of Sender and Receiver units can be
operated in the same environment. Local RF interference can limit
the number of units that can be used. Each Sender unit needs to be
placed at least 1 meter apart for optimum performance. If additional
Sender / Receiver pairs are to be used, each set of units must be placed
beyond the reception range (100 feet / 30 meters) of the other in order
to prevent interference.

•
EU Models: Up to 2 pairs of Sender and Receiver units can be
operated in the same environment. Local RF interference can limit
the number of units that can be used. Each Sender unit needs to be
placed at least 1 meter apart for optimum performance. If additional
Sender / Receiver pairs are to be used, each set of units must be
placed beyond the reception range (100 feet / 30 meters) of each
other in order to prevent interference.
IR back-channel compatibility:
IMPORTANT: Only products with 38 kHz IR carrier frequency
are compatible. If in doubt, please check with the equipment
manufacturer.
»»
•
Due to complexity in some manufacturers’ IR codes, not all 38kHz IR
devices may be compatible with the IR Back Channel of the
Wireless for HDMI. For a list of compatible brands, see
www.gefentv.com
Operational Limitations:
»»
Regarding US and EU models, note that all RF devices are designed
by compliance regulation to accept interference from all other
devices. Operation of wireless products is therefore dependent on the
environment they are in. Other RF products, even ones that seemingly
might not be in the frequency range, do create harmonics and other
artifacts that could interfere with the operation of the Wireless for HDMI.
