HDTV Supplys WolfPack 8x8 HDMI Matrix Router Over CAT5 is made up of a true 8x8 HDMI Matrix Router with each of the 8-outputs bundled and going to 8-separate HDMI extenders that can extend the HDMI signal up to 175 feet. The separate HDMI extenders are made up of 8-transmitters and 8-HDMI receivers and 8x2 = 16 AC adapters.
Controlling the WolfPack WolfPack 8x8 HDMI Matrix Router Over CAT5 is simple with the front-panel buttons, the included infrared remote control, and the RS-232 port. The TCP/IP controls can also be used to manage the unit from a web browser. For example, if you wanted your DVD Player going to 5 displays and your DVR going to 3 displays all at the same time, then this is the device you need. What if you wanted to have your Xbox going to 4 displays downstairs, your DVD player to the display in your bedroom upstairs, and your cable box to your living room display and you wanted all of this to happen simultaneously? Well then this HDMI Matrix switch is for you.
NOTE: We also have free Control4 drivers & user donated, non-supported, ELAN drivers. Even though the one-way Control4 drivers are free they are licensed to each matrix order and must be ordered again when the matrix order is placed. You cannot get the free, or any, Control4 drivers without ordering a matrix system. We send you the drivers by an email attachment when the matrix switcher ships.

Q: Does this HDMI Matrix Switch support remote IR?
A: No, as it has separate transmitters and receivers.
Q: I see the the HDMI extenders come with 2-remote IR cables, will the remote IR work with this matrix?
A: No, the cables are used when the application has one source and one widescreen. They can't be used with this matrix and need to be set aside and not used.
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: Do the optional HDMI extenders support Remote IR?
A: They send perfect audio and video but the remote IR doesn't support this device as it only works with with 1-source & 1-TV. See our RF remote controls if you want to control all your devices from afar.
