This matrix features a set of 7- EDID modes in addition to allowing any input source to receive a copy of the EDID information of any selected output. Changing the EDID settings may be necessary when connecting to or from a surround sound receiver or for passing 3D content derived from a cable or satellite set top box if the default EDID has problems.

Using one of the the internal EDID modes can also speed up the switching process with cable or satellite and many other sources.

If you use one of the internal EDID settings the source device will see the matrices EDID you chose instead of the display’s EDID and overrides the display’s own EDID information. If your display is not capable of accepting the video resolution or audio type selected, you may not have audio and/or video. In this case choose another more compatible EDID or use the default EDID.

Note: If connecting the outputs to both displays and AV receivers, the audio output will only be stereo due to the limitations of the display. If all devices are AV receivers then multi-channel audio such as Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD can be output. Likewise, the switcher will also look at the resolution of all flat panels connected and output the resolution of the lowest display.

Why should I want a 4x2 HDMI Matrix Routing Switcher with CEC? Consumer Electronics Control (CEC) allows your HDTVs remote to manage up to ten devices that are connected via HDMI (such as Blu-ray Disc players or home theater receivers) and no special programming is needed. You can use your TVs remote to turn on your TV, your player, and your receiver at the same time and adjust the system volume with one button. All devices must have the CEC option, though, as this splitter does.

Q: This product has CEC, what is CEC?

A: This product features CEC (Consumer Electronics Control) allowing your HDTV's remote to manage up to ten devices that are connected via HDMI (such as Blu-ray Disc players or home theater receivers) with no special programming needed. For example, you can use your remote to turn on your TV, your player, and your receiver at the same time, and adjust the system volume with one button. All devices must support CEC, though.

Most major TV manufacturers now support CEC, and an HDTV with HDMI 1.3 will likely have the technology. Manufacturers call it by different names; LG Electronics, for instance, calls its implementation SimpleLink, whereas Toshiba calls its version CE-Link. Interoperability isn't mandatory, so some manufacturers limit control to their own products; Sony, for one, allows only Sony-to-Sony communication.
