WHAT I NEED TO KNOW ABOUT EDID

NEED MORE HELP...See our UNDER $2,000 8X8 HDMI MATRIX COMPARISON to help you make a decision.

HDTV Supply is a leader in supplying 3D equipment for this new, fast growing 3DTV market. Our test lab includes the latest equipment for designing, testing and supporting 3D video equipment. The chips sets we use support the below 3D formats and work with many of our HDMI 1.3 and HDMI 1.4 compliant devices. These HDMI Matrix Switcher supports these 3D formats:
  • Side-by-Side 3D Format
  • Top-and-Bottom 3D Format
  • Blu-ray 3D Format
  • Frame packing
  • and more
We not only test these HDMI Matrix Switcher with lab equipment we also test many of our 3D devices with 3D products you are likely to use. The products used for the test are:
  • Sony PS3 with the 3D 3.41 firmware
  • Samsung model PN50C7000YF 3DTV
  • Samsung model BD-C6900 3D Blu-ray player FORCED to 1080p
  • Samsung model SSG-P2100T 3D glasses
  • DirecTV models HR21-100 and the HR24 high definition receiver.
  • HDTV Supply's true HDMI 1.4 cables
  • It works with all HDMI devices including the new 3D units.
The 3D viewing results were awesome in our lab and did not have any picture or audio degradation. The normal and standard (2D) results equally exhibited a superb picture quality.

Q: You have a great selection of 8x8 HDMI Matrix Switchers, do you have a comparison of them?
A:
Yes, see our UNDER $2,000 8X8 HDMI MATRIX COMPARISON to help you make a decision.

Q: Can I use unpowered HDMI over CAT5/6 extenders with this matrix?
A:
We don't recommend them with our matrices, or anyone else's, due to them consuming power from the matrix and the matrices are not designed to power many external devices.

Consider the example of 9 - HDMI balun transmitters that need 0.5a amp each to power it times 9 or 4.5 amps the matrix would have to supply. The power supply of this matrix is rated at 12v at 3.5 amp so in that example the matrix would probably break down and your warranty may be voided. See the companion powered HDMI extenders in the above OPTIONS that have 2-AC adapters.

HDMI cables with built-in boosters also consume power also and we don't recommend more than 2, if at all. You must use our low power ones, also.

Q: I've made EDID changes but don't see an affect.
A:
When you make changes to the EDID, you need to either power cycle the display or change the inputs. This forces the display to relock onto the source.

Q: Would I be able to used an HDMI connection for audio only going to my audio receiver. This way I could get True HD Audio. Will this output work how I am describing?
A:
Yes, provided you do not turn On a display device that might be connected to the Output of your audio receiver. Some older displays do not have the ability to decode anything other than 2 channel stereo and when connected to a receiver via HDMI.

Q: I have a PC with HDMI out, how do I set it up?
A:
When your computer boots up, it looks for an EDID (extended display identification data) from the display to tell it what monitor is connected and what resolution to output. During boot up of the computer you should have ONLY one output selected to one input at a time so that the computer gets the EDID of the display that is selected. If you have multiple outputs selected to one computer, the computer will read the EDID of the last output selected to it. If all your displays are the same, or all displays are capable of running at the same resolution then this step does not matter.

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.

Q: The front panel power light comes on but there is no LED numbers in the display, what do I do?
A:
For tech support always call 800-841-9238.
