The 4X2 HDMI Matrix Switch with User Adjustable EDID has 8 standard HDMI inputs and 8 standard HDMI outputs and one HDMI PREVIEW port. An Intelligent EDID learning function is added to increase its compatibility to any HDTV, unlike cheaper units that you have to guess their compatibility. Intelligent EDID learning is only found in professional HDMI switchers.
When should I consider a 4-4 HDMI Matrix Switcher that has user adjustable EDID:
If your TVs have mixed HDMI resolutions like some 720p and some 1080p, aand some 1080i, etc
If your TVs have mixed audio like some stereo and some Dolby Digital, etc
If you have TVs greater than 5 years old
If you have off brand cheaper TVs like Westinghouse, etc
If you have a lot of devices in series with the source device, like an amp, matrices, boosters, splitters, etc.
The 4x2 HDMI Matrix Switcher provides this built-in EDID management for recognizing multiple display formats and sources and helps eliminates EDID conflicts as the matrix replaces the EDID in the displays. More can be read at WHAT I NEED TO KNOW ABOUT EDID.
The 4x2 HDMI Matrix Switcher with RS232 control allow the switcher to be controlled by control systems like Crestron or any computerized software/hardware control system.
NOTE: 24AWG or thicker (lower AWG number) HDMI cables are HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for best performance. Some devices will require thicker gauge, category 2 cables to work with this switch. For runs up to 15ft, use 24AWG. For runs of 20ft or more, use 22AWG HDMI cables (which is thicker than 24AWG.)
This matrix features a set of 8- 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.

Q: Would I be able to use 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.
