Why not buy this EDID Cheater today?
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.

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.

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.
