The result is an easy and flexible installation eliminating the need for any separate S/PDIF audio connection. Also features of a digital audio breakout to extract audio, as well as an HDMI loop out for an additional HDMI output. With only one cost effective Cat5e/6 cable, high def sources with HDMI outputs can be
connected to high definition displays with HDMI inputs over long distances. Deep color video, DTS-HD or Dolby TrueHD audio, and HDCP is supported and compatible with DVI. In addition, is also equipped with bi-directional IR pass-through which allows for source or display control.
The Extender includes two units: transmitting unit (TX) and
receiving unit (RX). The transmitting unit is used to capture the HDMI input with IR signals and carries the signals via one cost effective Cat5e/6 cable.

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.

Q/AQ: Does the WolfPack HDMI extender send ARC to my AV receivers HDMI output?
The HDMI extender can't return the ARC to Transmitter. It can output the ARC audio from Receiver coaxial port only. If you open the ARC function, the TV audio will return to the HDMI extender Receiver and output to coaxial port.Q: My picture is jumpy, what do I do?
Q: ARC doesn't seem to be working, can you help?
- Set the source device resolution to the same resolution of the TV, like 1280x720p to 720p.
- Set the EDID properly per the above manual.
- Makes the CAT5e/6 cable per the above manual.
- Use Cat5e/6 home runs and do not use internet hubs, wall plates and couplers.
- See the Q/A Tab.
Q: What is ARC?
- Make sure you are installing HDMI 1.4 cables that include ARC, see our specs at HDMI cables with ARC
- The TV must support ARC and it must be turned ARC ON
- The unique TVs HDMI input must say it supports ARC
- Wire the HDMI transmitter coax's output to the coax input of your AV receiver
- Make sure CAT5e/6 STP connectors are put on "B"
- Turn CEC ON
- Leave EDID at its default.
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. You will need a coax audio cable (not supplied) to connect the HDMI transmitter to to the coax audio input on your AV receiver.Q: Do I need special HDMI cables for ARC?
Yes, you need HDMI 1.4 or above HDMI cables that support internal Ethernet and ARC. See our above OPTIONS.Q: I am in a church and don't want to see a "No Signal" on my display when the PC is turned off, how does this work?
The picture will be black and blank without displaying any type of signal.Q: Is it HDMI 1.4 or HDMI 1.3 as the manual says both?
The HDMI loop out supports V1.4 if used with a short HDMI 1.4 cable and when it extends over a CAT6 cable it only supports HDMI 1.3Q: Is it 164 feet with 3D and 1080p?
Yes with this CAT6 cable
.Q: Will it do 1080p 3D with CAT5e stranded at 164 feet?
Sometimes the quality of a CAT cable will affect transmission distance so we suggest customers to use a solid CAT6 cable.Q: What are the AC adapter specs other than 5V/1a? Will it work worldwide?
We use DC 5V 1A for the power supply. For worldwide use you will need an optional universal plug.Q: If both TVs have ARC how does the ARC work?
There is an ON/OFF switch for ARC on the receiver and it can only controls the ARC of the TV (which connects to the receiver). The HDMI loop out does not support ARC.Q: If both TVs have different EDID, what are the EDID settings?
The extender can copy EDID from TV and you can choose copy EDID from transmitter HDMI loop out or receiver HDMI outQ: There are no 720p EDID settings, how is that handled?
We can update software to get 720P EDID as required. Call usQ: Can these units be cascaded.
Yes, we managed to cascade 3 sets with solid CAT6 cables to over 400 feet.Q: What is the IR frequency
The frequency of our wideband IR receiver is 20-60KHz.Q: I'm not getting 3D.
Please set the EDID to the appropriate 3D and audio starting at Position 6.Q: Will the Remote IR work with all remote controls?
The IR repeater works well with 26 KHz single band remotes but may not work with multi-band remotes used on a few satellite boxes. Look for 2 emitters on the nose of the remote. If you are pre-wiring make sure to run a 3rd cat5 cable so you can add an IR system that can handle multi-band remotes. If you have multi-band remotes you might want to upgrade your remotes to UHF, which goes through walls. This will bypass the IR system completely on the extender or change to a universal remote control to handle all your devices.Q: Does this HDMI over CAT5 cable extender support 4K?
No, please see our 4K HDMI to CAT5 Extenders
.Q: Does the remote IR work with a HDMI matrix switch or HDMI splitter?
These HDMI extenders will send both HDMI video and audio from a matrix or splitter, etc but the remote IR is designed to be used with only one source, like a cable box, to one widescreen. There would be too many IR cables to attach on the sources IR window. See our HDMI switchers and splitters that have it integrated.
