EDID. What is it and what is it used for?
Under normal circumstances, a source device (digital and analog) will require information about a connected device/display to assess what resolutions and features are available. The source can then cater its output to send only resolutions and features that are compatible with the attached device/display. This information is called EDID (Extended Display Information Data)
and a source device can only accept and read one EDID from a connected device/display. Likewise, the source an only output one resolution for use by a connected device/display.
Why is EDID so important with the HDMI Matrix ?
The Matrix is complex piece of technology that replicates and switches between multiple inputs and outputs. Each connected source device will require one EDID to read. EDID management is carefully handled by HDMI Matrix to provide a single EDID for each source to read.
What options do I have to manage the EDID in the HDMI Matrix ?
First, it is important to note that each source device can only output one video/audio signal type. This includes resolutions and timings. When multiple devices/displays are used, such as with the HDMI Matrix, it is important to use devices/displays that have similar or compatible resolutions/features. This will ensure that the single video/audio signal produced by the source device is accepted by all of the connected output devices/displays.The user has the option, through the EDID management window, to choose how the unit will manage the EDID from multiple HDMI devices/displays. Therefore the user has some control over the resolutions/features that the source devices will output. The HDMI Matrix for has a multiple EDID management modes that will control how the EDID information from multiple devices/displays are combined, ignored, and routed.

2.Press these button to select output A,B,C,D for input 1,2,3,4 port.
7. Super IR Control system(IR Call-back of Matrix and Source Devices)
The matrix is not only a switcher and extender of multiple HDMI signals to multiple HDMI receivers located remotely, it also passes IR control signals through the IR call-back system to the matrix and HDMI sources for full, independent control of all connected inputs from output locations.
Two-way IR Call-back Between matrix, Sources and Displays from Multiple Locations
A key feature on the matrix is discrete IR control of the matrix, sources and displays from any location - so inputs at the matrix end can be controlled at a display location and displays can be controlled at the matrix location. This is accomplished by placing a series of IR Emitters on devices to control and IR Receivers at all locations you wish to control from to enable the IR signal to travel both ways via the single Cat5e/6/7 cable.
01. At Matrix end: Insert the 3.5mm jacks of the IR TX Emitters included with the unit into the IR TX Emitter ports at the rear of the matrix according to input. The IR signal is added to the HDMI of the input device so, for example, if the user is watching Blu-ray on input 1, the IR signal will be directed through the IR TX1 socket to control the device.
As each IR TX port is allocated to an individual HDMI input port, if the user is unable to establish IR control of the device, care should be taken to check firstly, that the IR emitter and HDMI input ports match (Input 1-TX1, Input2-TX2 etc.) with plugs secured in correct ports, and secondly, that the IR TX emitter sensors are firmly attached directly to the front of inputs and covering infrared sensor windows of the source devices.Some later adjustment may be needed to the location of the sensor to achieve the best performance results - sometimes moving the sensor to different areas on the source can improve IR performance.
NOTE: Infrared receiving areas of devices can be located by shining a flashlight onto the front of the device - the sensor should be able to be seen through the plastic as a small, round object inside.Insert 3.5mm jacks of IR RX receivers into RX ports, making sure the receivers themselves are placed in clear view to receive an infrared signal from the remote handset used to control the display outputs.
02. At display end: Insert the IR RX Receiver jack into the IR RX port of the display receiver balun, with the receivers themselves placed in clear view on or near the displays to receive an infrared signal from the remote handset used to control inputs.Insert the IR TX Emitter jack into the IR TX port of the display receiver balun, ensuring that the emitter sensor is securely attached to infrared sensor window of the display.Follow the same connection and positioning for all baluns/displays connected to the matrix.If all IR TX Emitters and IR RX Receivers are positioned and connected correctly with sources, displays and display receivers fully powered and the matrix set to IR call-back enabled and IR TX Swicth mode activated, two-way IR will now be possible.
Note: Misplaced or poorly secured IR Emitters and Receivers may result in intermittent IR control signals passed to and from the matrix. Check your placement and adjust if necessary.
Typically, unless alternative methods of controlling the matrix are chosen or problems with device communication through the matrix encountered, basic operation is all that is required to operate your matrix. However, the following information on advanced operation will detail how the matrix system can be configured and for advanced control and settings can be altered or data manually input should such problems arise, as well as configuring the system for third party control.

10. Operate and Connect
1. Connect up to 4 sources such as a Blu-Ray Player, game console, A/V Receiver, Cable or Satellite Receiver, etc. to the HDMI inputs on the unit. Do not hotplug! Insert and extract cables carefully with the power SWITCHED OFF. Connecting and disconnecting while the unit is powered can result in damage to circuitry.
2. Connect the output UTP ports and/or HDMI output ports, starting with output 1, to the E50IR Receiver display receivers (sold separately) (using well terminated or pre-terminated Cat5e/6 cables no longer than 160 ft)
3. If utilizing UTP, connect the output HDMI ports of the E50IR Receiver display receivers (sold separately) to high-definition displays such as an HDTV or HD projector that use HDMI inputs. Note that high-speed HDMI cables are recommended for the distances that are required for each connection.
4. Plug in IR transmitters to the back of the Matrix Selector Switcher unit (IR TX), the transmitters are labeled IR TX, place in front of the IR receiver of the source, ensure that each emitter is placed in front of the IR receiver eye. Double-sided adhesive tape provided.
5. Plug in IR receivers to the port of the E50IR Receiver display receivers (sold separately) ,the receivers are labeled IR RX, use provided double-sided adhesive tape to stick emitters at each display at a desired place that will receive a remote signal.
6. For power, plug in the source first, followed by the Matrix Selector Switcher (power supply included), followed by the display receivers, followed by each output connected.
7. Power on each device in the same sequence.
At this point each display connected should display the assigned source (input 1 at default when powered on initially), scroll through each of the sources on each display to ensure everything is in working order. Use included IR remote at each display receiver to test switching function between sources and IR function itself. If a display is having difficulty receiving a signal, access the display's menu and adjust the resolution (lowest to highest until signal is displayed). A 24 Hz vertical refresh rate may work better than 60 Hz or higher. If the IR remote function is not responding, check the emitters to ensure they are placed correctly and are plugged into the correct IR jacks on the Matrix Selector Switcher unit.
