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.
1. Best results are usually achieved when the source and display resolutions are the same. If resolutions differ, the splitters will try to adjust the signal to match the resolution of the HD TV with the lowest resolution. This will result in a picture with a lower resolution on the other HD TV sets.
2. If you do not get audio and video see if you can use the “set-up” menu on the TV to adjust the audio settings and the video settings. If the HDMI control circuit can’t establish a hand-shake, then there usually will be no audio or video and a blue or black screen with a statement like “this protocol not supported” or “weak signal”.
3. If you get the above messages, re-set the Transmitter by disconnecting the power supply. Alternately, you can disconnect all of the HDMI and power cables, wait 10 or 15 minutes for any voltages to decay and then connect all of the cables from the source, to the Transmitter and to the display.
4. If you still have trouble, then try the “hot-plug concept. Turn on the source and plug the HDMI cable to it and then power-up the Transmitter and plug the cable into it, then plug the output cable into the Receiver and finally turn-on the display and plug the HDMII cable from the Receiver into it. This activates all of the devices in order and results in a signal being plugged-in to a device that is on and will try to connect to the signal.
5. Most of the major player 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 problem. Sometimes a player, an audio/video receiver, or a cable/satellite box may not have the latest software update and needs to have this downloaded from the manufacturer’s web site.
6. If the above actions do not result in a satisfactory result, focus attention on the Cat 5e or Cat 6 cables used. The HDMI signals run at digital data rates, which are at least ten times faster than for conventional Ethernet. If 8-position modular plugs are attached in the field, the connection may not be able to support the HDMI signal. This is why factory terminated assemblies are strongly recommended. To determine if the field-assembled cables are at fault, move the source close to the display and connect with a 3 ft or 6 ft computer cable assembly.
7. If you have problems with the IR control circuit, make sure that the IR RX pigtail is plugged into the extender receiver and pointed at the display and the IR TX pigtail is attached to the extender sender and pointed at the source. Click here for more products.
