FEATURES/
DESCRIPTION
SW104-130
Inputs
The SW104-130 Auto-Switcher is designed to
switch between two video+ audio sources. The
selected source is converted and transmitted using
ALTINEX’s Twisted Pair standard as well as
buffered and output locally. The SW104-130 is
designed for use with an equivalent ALTINEX TP
Receiver such as the TP115-111.
The SW104-130 features three modes of operation:
auto, manual, and remote. In auto mode, Input 2 is
the default selection and the SW104-130
automatically switches to Input 1 on signal
detection. In manual mode, the input is selected
using a switch on the side of the unit. Remote
switching is made via a contact closure connected
to the Input Select jack. The contact may be
controlled manually, or by using a control system.

INSTALLING YOUR SW104-130

OPERATION
Step 1. Make sure to use the ALTINEX power
adapter supplied with the unit. Connect
the power adapter to the power port. The
Power and Input 2 LEDs should turn on.
The SW104-130 requires only one adjustment to be
made for optimal performance. The adjustment is
video equalization for long cable lengths. The
remaining controls are for input selection only.
7.1 VIDEO EQUALIZATION
NOTE: Input 2 is the default if there is no
signal on Input 1 and the Control
Switch is in the Auto position.
Video equalization is provided to fine-tune the
displayed image on the remote display. The
equalization adjustments on the SW104-130
and Twisted Pair receiver work together.
Step 2. Connect a video and audio source to
Input 1. If there is a properly formatted
input signal on Input 1, the switcher will
switch to Input 1 automatically, and the
Input 1 LED will turn on.
Start by setting both units to minimum and then
increase slowly. Some monitors respond very
quickly to changes in the equalization, others
may not display an image until the equalization
is set precisely.
Step 3. Connect a video and audio source to
Input 2. If there is a properly formatted
input signal on Input 1, the switcher will
remain on Input 1.
7.2 SWITCH MODES
7.1.1 AUTO-SWITCH MODE
Step 4. Connect the local video and audio outputs
to the local monitor and speakers.
In auto-switch mode, the SW104-130 automatically
selects Input 2 if no active signal is present on
Input 1. If a signal is on Input 2 and not on Input 1,
the SW104-130 will maintain Input 2. However,
when an active signal is applied to Input 1, the
SW104-130 will switch to Input 1. If active signals
are on both inputs, the SW104-130 will
automatically switch to Input 1.
Step 5. If a remote switch is to be used, connect
the control cable to the Input Select port.
See Section 7 for operation control.
Step 6. Verify that the picture quality on the
display is good. If a signal is not being
received, make sure that the display is
compatible with the resolution of the
computer graphics card.
7.1.2 MANUAL-SWITCH MODE
The SW104-130 control switch allows switching
between Input 1 and Input 2. Placing the control
switch in either the Input 1 or Input 2 position forces
the source signal to the main and local outputs
thereby disabling auto-switching.
Step 7. Connect the 4TP Main Output to the input
of the Twisted Pair receiver.
NOTE: Connect the Twisted Pair
receiver per its instructions.
Step 8. The SW104-130 is now ready for
operation. Depending on the length of the
cable, the video equalization adjustment
may need to be adjusted for optimal
performance.

7.1.3 REMOTE SWITCH MODE
Remote switching is achieved via a contact closure
on the Input Select jack. Remote switching mode
disables both auto-switching and the Control Switch
position. A closed contact selects Input 1 and an
open contact selects Input 2.

TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE
Cause 3:
8
We have carefully tested and found no problems in
the supplied SW104-130 unit. However, we would
like to offer the following suggestions:
Solution 1: Remove the input signals from the
switcher. If the Input 2 LED is off,
call ALTINEX at (714) 990-2300. If
the Input 2 LED is on, see
Solution 2.
8.1 LEDs ARE OFF
Cause 1:
The power adapter is installed
wrong.
Solution 2: Connect a properly formatted video
type signal to Input 1. If the switcher
does not switch to Input 1, see
Solution 3.
Solution 1: Make sure the adapter output is
connected to the power input jack on
the unit. If one of the LEDs is still not
on, see Solution 2.
Solution 3: Bypass the switcher and connect the
output of the source directly to the
display. If the display is good, then
see Cause 4.
Solution 2: Ensure the adapter is plugged into
an AC outlet that has power. If the
adapter has AC power and the LEDs
are still off, see Cause 2.
Cause 2:

Solution 1: Please use the ALTINEX supplied
external adapter. If one of the LEDs
is still not on, please call ALTINEX
at (714) 990-2300.
8.3 NO DISPLAY
8.2 UNIT DOES NOT AUTO-SWITCH
Cause 1:
The source has a problem.
Cause 1:
The remote override switch is
installed.
Solution:
Solution:
Remove the connection to the Input
Select jack on the unit. If a plug is in
the jack, even without a switch
connected, the SW104-130 will not
auto-switch properly. If the unit does
not auto-switch with the plug
removed, see Cause 2.
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:
Manual override is ON.
Solution:
Make sure there is nothing
connected to the Input Select port
on the switcher. If there is nothing
connected, see Cause 3.
Cause 2:
The control switch is not in the
auto position.
Solution:
Switch the Control Switch to the
auto position. If the unit does not
auto-switch, see Cause 3.
