HDMI devices (any source / player, LCD, Plasma etc) have different results when inserting HDMI Repeater devices depending on the equipment you are using (a repeater device is any switch / splitter / extender etc). Please ensure to get confirmation from the manufacturer of your source / player / LCD that the specific player or LCD can communicate via a HDMI Repeater. Some source devices might not allow any HDMI device between itself and the LCD and will only function via a direct HDMI cable to the LCD. The opposite is also possible where the LCD needs a direct connection to the source / player and will not accept a regenerated signal from a HDMI Repeater device. Your display or source manufacturer can confirm if their product supports the functions required.

As the name states this is a True Matrix switcher meaning you can independantly assign any of the 4 inputs to each of the 2 ouputs. The device is 1.3a spec'd meaning it will pass the high output signal needed to enjoy Full HD video. Additionally, the device will support new high resolution, multi-channel digital audio formats. The unit also comes with a remote control with direct access input buttons for each out the ouputs.

HDMI CABLES AND EQUIPMENT SHOULD NEVER BE CONNECTED / DISCONNECTED WHILE YOUR EQUIPMENT IS POWERED ON SINCE THE HDMI PORT CARRIES A LOW VOLTAGE BUT CAN CAUSE DAMAGE TO EQUIPMENT WHEN PLUGGED / UNPLUGGED WHILE POWERED ON. The sequence below should be followed when installing new cables or equipment between source/player and LCD / Plasma.
1.) Power-off all equipment (At the wall socket).
2.) Connect all Cables, Splitters, Switches, Extenders within HDMI Distribution Network.
3.) Power on all Splitters, Switches, Extenders within HDMI Distribution Network.
4.) Power on all LCD / Plasma's and set to HDMI input from HDMI Distribution Network.
5.) Power on Sources / Players (Sources negotiates HDCP Handshake via HDMI Network to displays which is set to HDMI input to respond to handshake).
After power-on sequence was done, the inputs on the LCD / Plasma can be changed normally and source / displays can be powered on/off as usual. The equipment within the HDMI Distribution Network should never be powered off and if powered off should be powered on first. LCD's should always be powered on first during normal usage and set to the correct HDMI input port before the source/players are powered on. Repeat this power-on sequence after a general power failure has occurred. Power-on sequence is recommended for HD PVR / Blu-rays and most HDCP devices.
Please check the Home Entertainment Wiring Diagram section on our website for common uses of this switch and for alternative wiring options.
Use high quality Surge Protection plugs on your equipment to ensure unstable power from electrical wall socket / electrical surges will have less chance of damaging your equipment. a UPS (Uninterruptible power supply) is highly recommended in all areas of your home or business where LCD's, players and HDMI Equipment is installed.
