The GefenTV Wireless for HDMI Multi-RoomSolution

The GefenTV Wireless for HDMI - Multi-RoomSolution sends high definition audio and video to any HDTV display up to 100 feet (30 meters) away. It extends HDMI from computers,set-topboxes,Blu-rayplayers, and other audio/video sources to a remote HDTV display. The Wireless for HDMI -Multi-RoomSolution supports resolutions up to

1080p Full HD along with support for up to 7.1-channelsof digital audio in PCM, and up to 5.1 channels in Dolby® and DTS® formats. The included IR emitter can be connected to the Sender unit and placed by theHi-Defsource*, allowing full control of the source from another room simply by pointing the IR remote at the Receiver unit. The Wireless for HDMI -Multi-RoomSolution transmits through walls and does not requireline-of-sightfor

good reception. Additional features allow multiple units using the included handheld remote control.

How It Works

Connect one of the included HDMI cables from the Hi-Defsource to the Sender unit. Connect the other included HDMI cable from the Receiver unit to the HDTV display.

Connect the included power supplies to the Sender and Receiver units and to available electrical outlets. Connect the included IR Emitter to the Sender unit and place it near the IR sensor window of the device to be controlled*. Power-upthe source and the display. Within approximately one minute, the “Video” indicators on both units should now glow solid blue to indicate a successful connection between the Sender and Receiver unit. If the

Sender and Receiver units do not pair automatically, the LEDs on the Sender will continue to blink. Navigate through the on-screenmenu and have the Receiver unit look for a

Sender unit. If the remote is not available, you can press and hold the recessed pairing button on the Receiver with a paper clip until its Link LED stops blinking and goes dark.

Press and hold its recessed pairing button on the Sender unit with a paper clip until the Link

LED stops blinking and goes dark. If navigating the menu using the remote, press the OK button on the IR remote. A message indicating that the Sender and the Receiver units have been paired will appear on the display. Point the source’s IR remote at the IR window on the Receiver unit to control the source that is placed near the Sender unit.

*Please see www.gefentv.com for a list of compatible brands and models.

FCC STATEMENT

This device complies with part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the following two conditions: (1) This device may not cause harmful interference, and (2) this device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operation

INSTRUCTION TO THE USER

This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a class B digital device, pursuant to part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential installation. This equipment generates, uses and can radiate radio frequency energy and if not installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this

equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the following measures:

Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna

Increase the separation between the equipment and Receiver unit

Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the Receiver unit is connected

Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.

In order to maintain compliance with FCC regulations, shielded cables must be used with this equipment. Operation with non-approvedequipment or unshielded cables is likely to result in interference to radio and TV reception.

640x480

Obstructions such as walls and furniture may reduce performance and reception distance.

DVI-DSupport

Gefen recommends placing both units into the provided stands, with the Gefen logo pointing down, to help maintain the strongest possible transmission signal.

Interference caused by other RF products may reduce performance and reception distance.

Use with multiple Sender units:

Can be used with a single Receiver unit to provide source-switchingcapability.

Up to 8 Senders are supported. Local RF interference can limit the number of Sender units that can be used. Each Sender unit needs to be placed at least 1 meter apart for optimum performance.

US Models: Up to 4 pairs of Sender and Receiver units can be operated in the same environment. Local RF interference can limit the number of units that can be used. Each Sender unit needs to be placed at least 1 meter apart for optimum performance. If additional

Sender / Receiver pairs are to be used, each set of units must be placed beyond the reception range (100 feet / 30 meters) of the other in order to prevent interference.

OPERATION NOTES

Continued from previous page

EU Models: Up to 2 pairs of Sender and Receiver units can be operated in the same environment. Local RF interference can limit the number of units that can be used. Each Sender unit needs to be placed at least 1 meter apart for optimum performance. If additional Sender / Receiver pairs are to be used, each set of units must be placed beyond the reception range (100 feet / 30 meters) of each other in order to prevent interference.

IR back-channelcompatibility:

Only products with 38 kHz IR carrier frequency are compatible. If in doubt, please check with the equipment manufacturer.

Due to complexity in some manufacturers’ IR codes, not all 38kHz IR devices may be compatible with the IR Back Channel of the Wireless for HDMI. The following brands have been tested by Gefen: Panasonic, Sony, and Samsung.

Operational Limitations:

Regarding US and EU models, note that all RF devices are designed by compliance regulation to accept interference from all other devices. Operation of wireless products is therefore dependent on the environment they are in. Other RF products, even ones that seemingly might not be in the frequency range, do create harmonics and other

artifacts that could interfere with the operation of the Wireless for HDMI.
