OPERATION Notes

READ THESE NOTES BEFORE INSTALLING OR

OPERATING THE Multi Format Switcher

When initially powering on HDMI sources, it is important to have the Multi

Format Switcher for HDMI’s output selected to that source to ensure that the

EDID is relayed properly.

Compatible with all HDMI and DVI* displays

The Multi Format Switcher has a 15-footlimit on how far it can transmit the DDC (Display Data Channel) information out of the HDMI output jack to the display. Connections to displays at distances longer than 15 feet should use a true DDCre-clockingsolution such as ourCAT-5based HDMI signal extender device (Gefen part numberEXT-HDMI-CAT5-MS).

HDMI/HDCP compliant

Entering the Menu System

Pressing the Menu button on the included RMT-SR-IRremote control will display the GUI (graphical user interface) for adjustment options.

The GUI is overlaid onto the outgoing video to the display. Therefore, the selected source must be outputting a compatible resolution for viewing on the display. If video is not visible on the display, the GUI will also fail to be displayed. To correct this, please follow the steps below.

1.Verify that the source is on and outputting a video signal.

2.Verify that the RMT-SR-IRremote channel is in the default position (page 13).

3.Verify that the Multi Format Switcher is selected to the chosen source.

4.Press the Output button on the RMT-SR-IRremote control to cycle through output resolutions until video is displayed.

IR CODE CONFIGURATION

How to Resolve IR Code Conflicts

In the event that IR commands from other remote controls conflict with the supplied RMT-SR-IRremote control, changing the remote channel will alleviate this issue. TheRMT-SR-IRremote control has DIP SWITCHES for configuring the remote channel. The Multi Format Switcher must match the remote channel set in theRMT-SR-IRremote control. Please see page 10 for instruction on how to configure the channel on the Multi Format Switcher. By default, both the Multi

Format Switcher and the RMT-SR-IRremote control are set to Channel 1.
