4X1 HDMI 1.4 Switch w/COAX Audio Out & RS232 Specifications:
Here are the major enhancements introduced in the HDMI 1.4 specification:
HDMI Ethernet Channel: Adds high-speed networking to an HDMI link, allowing users to take full advantage of their IP-enabled devices without a separate Ethernet cable.
Audio Return Channel: Allows an HDMI-connected TV with a built-in tuner to send audio data "upstream" to a surround audio system, eliminating the need for a separate audio cable.
3D: Defines input/output protocols for major 3D video formats, paving the way for true 3D gaming and 3D home theater applications.
4K Support: Enables video resolutions far beyond 1080p, supporting next-generation displays that will rival the Digital Cinema systems used in many commercial movie theatres.
Content Type: Real-time signaling of content types between display and source devices, enabling a TV to optimize picture settings based on content type
Additional Color Spaces: Adds support for additional color models used in digital photography and computer graphics.
(*) NOTE: Since this 4x1 HDMI Switch w/Audio decodes the digital audio in the HDMI data stream your source devices MUST be set up correctly to get sound. Go in to the source devices AUDIO MENU and experiment with ALL the settings. Do the same with the HDTV's AUDIO MENU and any surround sound receiver.
The SPDIF and Optical audio outputs are LPCM 2-channel, Dolby 5.1 or DTS 5.1. Please refer to each of the manuals of your source devices on how to set the audio.
The S/PDIF Optical (Toslink) and Digital Coax audio output formats are based on the HDMI audio output. If any of the sync devices (e.g., HDTV, Projector, etc.) connected to the output can only support stereo audio, then the S/PDIF Optical (Toslink) and Digital Coaxial outputs will be limited to PCM stereo audio. The 5.1 channel audio output is only available for the digital audio outputs and requires both a 5.1 channel audio input and output. Additionally, the analog 3.5mm channel will always output 2-channel (stereo) audio.

Q: How do you set up the audio?
A: Since this 4x1 HDMI Switch w/Audio decodes the HDMI digital audio to separate Stereo, Optical & COAX Audio Outputs your source devices MUST be set up correctly to get sound. Go in to the source devices AUDIO MENU and experiment with ALL the settings. Do the same with the HDTV and any surround sound receiver.
Q: Your 4X1 HDMI Switch says it supports FST, what is FST?
A: This 4X1 HDMI Switch incorporates FST (Fast Switching Technology). FST allows faster switching when selecting different audio/video sources. In addition to fast switching, it improves overall audio/video system behavior as well as performance when more than one HDTV display is used in the system. FST allows you to connect and disconnect, and turn on/off, HDTV displays without affecting other hi-def sources routed to other HDTV displays in the same system.
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闁瑰吋娼tream 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闁硅崵wnstream 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闁瑰吋娼tream from the TV back to the audio system, a separate connection had to be installed, typically an S/PDIF cable.
