HDTV Supplys new EDID Cheater is used to emulate EDID information allowing the maximum video display performance when using extenders or other devices that have difficulty supporting EDID communication. The HDMI EDID Cheater is designed to emulate the EDID (Extended Display Identification Data) information of a display

Without the addition of the HDMI EDID Cheater, the video system performance may be limited to a lower video resolution that the maximum capability of the display. Many EDID cheaters tout they solve HDMI EDID problems but the more presets you have the better the chance. This HDMI Cheater has the most available today with 16!

  4. Your PC is not capturing the EDID from your display when you are using HDMI matrix switchers
  5. Your PC is not capturing the EDID from your display when you are using HDMI over CAT5 extenders
  6. Your AppleTv is not capturing the EDID from your display when you are using any of the above HDMI devices

EDID contains information about the capabilities of a display, including maximum supported resolution, color characteristics, etc., which allows a source device and display to operate at their highest collective performance level. Without the addition of the HDMI EDID Cheater, the video system performance may be limited to a lower video resolution that the maximum capability of the display.

The EDID Cheater is designed to solve the problem that computers and other devices can sometimes lose the Extended Display Identification Data (EDID) from the widescreen. The DDC EDID data is vital for the video extension as it is a data structure provided by a computer display to describe its characteristics to a graphics card. However, when you switch or disconnect and then reconnect the displays such as a widescreen, you may lose DDC EDID communication, and the user's computer then fails to display the image properly if at all.

No longer will this be the case if you use EDID Cheater. The EDID Cheater allows the user to have the best video image setting all the time. Through an easy manual 16-switch process the display's DDC EDID is memorized in the EDID Cheater thus preventing blank screens and boot problems as well as resolving the issue of display resolution and color due to a lack of DDC EDID information.

WHAT I NEED TO KNOW ABOUT EDID

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. This unit 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 Switchers 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: 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.

Your question:


EDID Extended Display Identification (User Adjustable EDID) Data is a VESA standard data format that contains basic information about a HDTV and its capabilities, including vendor information, maximum image size, color characteristics, factory pre-set timings, frequency range limits, and character strings for the monitor name and serial number. The information is stored in the display and is used to communicate with the system through a Display Data Channel (DDC ), which sites between the monitor and the source device. The system uses this information for configuration purposes, so the HDTV and system can work together.
