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 Evolution EVEX2007 HDMI Extender with ARC transmits HDMI video, audio and control signals, over a single Cat5e/6/7
up to 164ft/50m. It also supports bi-directional IR control, EDID call back, CEC pass through and ARC (audio return channel).
The special ARC pass through feature supports stereo ARC audio channel transmitting from a connected TV to an audio video
receiver or soundbar. The EVEX2007 can also be configured to break audio out from a local source. This product can achieve
all functions through single CAT5e cable. Extending distance is 50 meters for 1080p 60Hz HD signal.

Feature Clarification
1. HDMI ARC Receiver: The HDMI port of the EVEX2007 receiver supports HDMI 1.4 ARC RX feature, which means its HDMI
port can negotiate with a connected LCD TV or other HDMI sink device using CEC and accept ARC audio input. Please note
that the connected HDMI sink device must be with ARC and CEC supported also, and EVEX2007CONFIG DIP switch 1 and
3 (CEC and ARC setting) must be set to ‘ON’ so that ARC feature is constructed. All HDMI cables must be rated as HIGH
SPEED or HIGH SPEED with ETHERNET so that it can provide ARC and CEC functionality.
2. HDMI ARC Transmitter: The HDMI port of EVEX2007 transmitter supports the HDMI 1.4 ARC feature, which means its
HDMI port can negotiate with connected AVR or other HDMI source device (by CEC) and send ARC audio received from CAT5e
cable out. Please note that the connected HDMI source device must be with ARC and CEC supported also, and the EVEX2007
CONFIG DIP switches 1 and 3 (CEC and ARC setting) must be set to ‘ON’. All HDMI cables must be rated as HIGH SPEED or
HIGH SPEED with ETHERNET so that it can provide ARC and CEC functionality.
3. ARC SPDIF Toslink output (extender transmitter side): The EVEX2007 transmitter has 1 SPDIF Toslink port, which can also
send audio received from the receiving end and send it to an external audio device. This requires the switch configuration
mentioned above. The SPDIF Toslink port can also be selected to extract audio from the HDMI connected source and send it to
an external audio device. This is done by having the 2nd CONFIG SWITCH in the ON position.
1. Set the dip switches according to the mode or feature you would like to achieve.
2. Connect a source such as a Bluray player, game console, A/V receiver, Cable/Satellite Receiver, etc. to the
HDMI input on the transmitter.
3. Connect a display such as an HDTV or HD projector to the HDMI output on the receiving unit.
4. Connect a single Category 5e/6/7 cable up to 164ft/50m to the UTP output of transmitting unit and the
UTP input of the receiving unit.
5. To break audio out from the transmitting source or have the ARC audio used outside of the HDMI between
the transmitter and source, connect an Optical Audio cable to the SPDIF output on the transmitter to the
device you want the audio to be sent to. (Optional)
6. Connect the IR cables provided with the unit to the correct direction which IR is needed to be received
and transmitter. (OPTIONAL)
7. For power, connect the transmitter and receiver to the included power supplies.
8. Power on the source and display components. At this point audio, video and control functionality should be
The bi-directional IR system allows you to control the source that is connected to the extender unit, from the
display; or the display from the source, not simultaneously. There are two important things to note when
setting up the IR system:
1. The IR Receiver (IR RX) is always what you point your remote at to send an IR signal. This pigtail is placed
at the display for controlling the source; or at the source for controlling the display.
2. The IR Blaster (IR TX) is what sends the IR signal to what you are intending to control, whether it’s the
source or the display. This pigtail is placed at the source; either pointed at the source, or placed on the
front panel of the source, see below for placement tips. Or placed at the display to control the display
from the source.
To control the source: Plug IR Blaster into IR TX port of transmitter unit (EVEX2007-TX); place blaster in
front of the IR eye of the source.
To control the display: Plug IR Blaster into IR TX port of receiver unit (EVEX2007-RX); place blaster in front of
the IR eye of the display.
Note: Placement of the IR Blaster is important and can result in the IR system not working if improperly
• First, locate the IR eye or window on the source
• If placing the IR blaster right on the front panel of the source, do not stick right on top of the IR eye or
IR window. The IR signal cannot travel through the double-sided tape on the Blaster. Instead place the
blaster on either side, or on the top or bottom of the IR eye or window, with the tip of the blaster facing
the IR eye or window. See below for illustration of where IR signal shoots from on IR Blaster:
• To control the source: Plug IR Receiver into IR RX port of receiver unit (EVEX2006-RX); place receiver
at or near display.
• To control the display: Plug IR Receiver into IR RX port of transmitter unit (EVEX2006-TX); place
receiver in position where it is able to receive remote signals.
To Control the Source:
To Control the Display:
1. Plug the IR Blaster into the
IR TX Port on the Transmitter
1. Plug the IR Receiver into the
IR RX Port on the Transmitter
2. Plug the IR Receiver into the
IR RX Port on the Receiver
2. Plug the IR Blaster into the
IR TX Port on the Receiver
1. Vanco HDMI and Cat5e/6 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 IR extenders. Please check
carefully before plugging in the IR extender to the respective IR sockets.
3. The transmission length is largely affected by the type of Cat5e/6 cables utilized, the type of HDMI
sources, and the type of HDMI display. The testing result shows solid UTP cables (usually in the form of
300m [1,000ft] bulk cables) can transmit a lot longer signals than stranded UTP cables (usually in the
form of fixed length patch cords). Shielded STP cables are better suited than unshielded UTP cables.
A solid UTP Cat5e/6 cable shows longer transmission range than stranded STP Cat-6 cable. For long
extension applications, use solid UTP/STP category cables.
4. EIA/TIA-568-B termination (T568B) for Cat5e/6 cables is recommended for better performance.
5. To reduce the interference among the unshielded twisted pairs of wires in Cat5e/6 cables, one can use
shielded STP cables to improve EMI problems, which worsens in long cable transmission.
6. The quality of Cat5e/6 cables can have a major effect on how long the transmission limit can achieve and
quality of picture, the actual transmission range is subject to the Cat5e/6 cable utilized. For the best
results, Cat6 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.
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.
