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: Does the WolfPack HDMI extender send ARC to my AV receivers HDMI output?
A: 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?
A: Try these
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: ARC doesn't seem to be working, can you help?
A: Try this:
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.
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 "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?
A: 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?
A: 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 1.3
Q: Is it 164 feet with 3D and 1080p?
A: Yes with this CAT6 cable.
Q: Will it do 1080p 3D with CAT5e stranded at 164 feet?
A: 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?
A: 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?
A: 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?
A: The extender can copy EDID from TV and you can choose copy EDID from transmitter HDMI loop out or receiver HDMI out
Q: There are no 720p EDID settings, how is that handled?
A: We can update software to get 720P EDID as required. Call us
Q: Can these units be cascaded.
A: Yes, we managed to cascade 3 sets with solid CAT6 cables to over 400 feet.
Q: What is the IR frequency
A: The frequency of our wideband IR receiver is 20-60KHz.
Q: I'm not getting 3D.
A: Please set the EDID to the appropriate 3D and audio starting at Position 6.
Q: Will the Remote IR work with all remote controls?
A: 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 the remote IR work with a HDMI matrix switch or HDMI splitter?
A: 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.
