HDMI is a very complex technology requiring continuous authentication of the signal and the same
video resolution and audio settings on all electronic equipment in the system. When there are multiple
sources and displays, the video resolution and audio setting on all connected units must be adjusted
to correspond with that of the display having the lowest video and audio capability.
The Vanco 280564 HDMI 4x4 Compact Matrix Selector Switch allows 4 HDMI sources
to be distributed to up to 4 displays simultaneously. Have multiple sources displayed
simultaneously on any display or have a single source duplicated on multiple displays,
flexibility for the perfect solution. The 280564 is capable of up to 4K2K (2160p) Ultra
High Definition resolution and HD multi-channel audio distribution with simple control
using the front panel or remotely via IR Receivers at display locations. Also features EDID
management, which allows and encourages source and display “handshake” for seamless
integration. In addition, the 280564 is also equipped with RS-232 connectivity which allows
for third party integration. For reliable, no-nonsense HDMI distribution and control on a
budget, over short distances, the 280564 Matrix Selector Switch is a great choice for any

The EDID switch allows for EDID learning or to pre-set an EDID to encourage a “handshake” between the
display and source.
The EDID learning function is only necessary whenever any display on the HDMI output port is not outputting
audio and video properly. Because the HDMI source devices and displays may have various level of capability in
playing audio and video, the general principle is that the source device will output the lowest standards in audio
format and video resolutions to be acceptable among all HDMI displays connected. In this case, a 720p stereo
HDMI signal output would be probably the safest choice. The EDID function can also force the matrix to learn
the EDID of the lowest capable HDMI display among others to make sure all displays are capable to play the
HDMI signals normally.
There are two methods for EDID Learning as shown below:
1. EDID Dip Switch Adjustment: Please see below for EDID settings via EDID Dip Switch
2. IR Remote Control: Please see below for OPERATION CONTROL – SOFTWARE CONTROL THROUGH RS232
EDID Dip Switch Adjustment
To adjust EDID via Dip Switch, power off matrix unit and adjust to desired EDID setting on dip switch, then
power the matrix unit on. There will be an audible beep sound confirming the changes.
EDID Settings:
There are 16 embedded default EDID settings as shown below:

IR Transmitter
IR Receiver
1. Connect up to 4 sources such as a Blu-Ray Player, game console, A/V Receiver, Cable or Satellite
Receiver, etc. to the HDMI inputs on the unit.
2. Connect the output HDMI ports, starting with output 1, to high-definition displays such as an HDTV or HD
projector that has HDMI inputs. Note that high-speed HDMI cables are recommended for the distances
that are required for each connection.
3. For power, plug in the source first, followed by the Matrix Selector Switcher (power supply included),
followed by each output connected.
4. Power on each device in the same sequence.
At this point each display connected should display the assigned source (input 1 at default when powered
on initially), scroll through each of the sources on each display to ensure everything is in working order. Use
included IR remote at each display receiver to test switching function between sources and IR function itself.
If a display is having difficulty receiving a signal, access the display’s menu and adjust the resolution (lowest to
highest until signal is displayed). A 24 Hz vertical refresh rate may work better than 60 Hz or higher. If the IR
remote function is not responding, check the emitters to ensure they are placed correctly and are plugged into
the correct IR jacks on the Matrix Selector Switcher unit.
Plug IR Blaster into IR TX port of matrix unit (280564); place blaster in front of the IR eye of the
corresponding source.
Plug IR Receiver into IR RX port of matrix unit (280564); place receiver at or near corresponding display.
1. Vanco High Speed HDMI cables are strongly recommended for use with this product to ensure best
2. Incorrect placement of IR Blaster and Receiver may result in the failure of the unit. Please check carefully
before plugging in the IR accessories into the respective IR sockets.
3. 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.
1. Best results are usually achieved when the source and display resolutions are the same. If resolutions
differ, the extenders will try to adjust the signal to match the resolution of the HDTV with the lowest
resolution. This will result in a picture with a lower resolution on the other HDTV sets.
2. If you do not get audio and video, access the “setup” menu on the TV to adjust the audio and video
settings. If the HDMI control circuit cannot establish a handshake, then there usually will be no audio or
video in addition to a blue or black screen with a statement similar to “this protocol not supported” or
“weak signal”.
3. If the above mentioned messages display, reset the receiver by disconnecting the power supply. You can
also disconnect all of the HDMI and power cables, wait 15 minutes for any voltages to decay and then
reconnect all of the cables.
4. If you are still encountering issues, attempt the “hot-plug concept. With all of the HDMI cables
disconnected, turn on the source and plug in the HDMI cable into it’s output, then power up the Vanco
unit and plug the HDMI cable into it’s input, finally turn on the display and plug the HDMI cable from
the receiver into it. This activates all of the devices in corresponding order and results in a signal being
plugged into a device that is on and will attempt to connect the signal.
5. Most of the major source and display manufacturers employ a proprietary control channel to communicate
between devices from the same manufacturer. Sometimes this can interfere with the HDMI control circuit
or the authentication of the signal. Call the manufacturer if you experience this issue. Sometimes a player,
an audio/video receiver, or a cable/satellite box may not have the latest software update, usually this can
be downloaded from the manufacturer’s website.
6. If you have problems with the IR control circuit, make sure that the IR RX pigtail is plugged into extender
receiver and pointed at the display, and the IR TX pigtail is attached to the extender sender and pointed at
the source.
