NOTE: A MAJOR feature of this 4x1 HDMI Router with audio is you can set the EDID via DIP switches on the back of the 4x1 HDMI Router to set up different audio signals so that it can auto-sense the correct audio to output or you can manually set the switches for either two or five channel. Many 4x1 HDMI Routers do not work this way as they get the EDID from your widescreen of which is normally 2-channel. See the above COMPATIBILITY TAB for how to set the 4x1 HDMI router up.

USER TIPS: When the switch is in 2CH mode, it will tell all the video sources connected to this switch to send audio in 2CH and when switch is in 5.1CH mode, it will also tell all video sources that it can support 5.1CH audio. The video sources should ALWAYS send the highest audio and video formats if they are supported, so as long as the source material has 5.1CH audio content, it will send audio in 5.1CH. But if the source content does NOT have 5.1CH, it will still send 2CH audio even if the switch asks for 5.1CH.
If the switch is in 5.1CH mode, you will not have sound from the TV, to solve this problem, you have to return to the 2CH mode. Just use that audio / reset button to solve this problem. The SPDIF output will always have sound, identical to the audio coming into the switch, either in 5.1CH or 2CH.

Q: This 4x1 HDMI Router 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: What is ARC?
A: The (ARC) Audio Return Channel in HDMI 1.4 enables a TV, via a single HDMI cable, to send audio data "upstream" to an A/V receiver or surround audio controller, increasing user flexibility and eliminating the need for any separate S/PDIF audio connection.
TVs have always been able to receive multi-channel audio through an HDMI connection, and this is still a typical use-case, with the TV positioned "downstream" from content sources and any connected audio equipment. However, if a user had a TV with a built-in tuner or DVD player, and wanted to send content "upstream" from the TV back to the audio system, a separate connection had to be installed, typically an S/PDIF cable.
