    4x4 Matrix HDMI® Switch & Splitter over CAT5e/CAT6 Cable w/ Remote - Extend Upto 131ft

    If you've got a sports bar or restaurant and you want to show different programs on different TVs, or if you've got a house full of kids and family, each of whom wants to watch their own shows, you need an HDMI® Matrix!

    This 4x4 Matrix HDMI Switch & Splitter is the perfect way to get ultimate flexibility out of your entertainment system. You can plug up to four different HDMI sources (e.g., blu-ray player, DVR, Xbox 360, PS3, etc.) into the Matrix and up to four output displays. The Matrix will let you independently switch between the four inputs for each display. Each display can simultaneously use the same signal or any combination of different signals.

    Unlike most Matrix Switch/Splitters, this model also includes the capability of extending either or both outputs over a pair of Cat5e/Cat6 cables up to 40 meters (131 feet) away! This lets you deliver full 1080p signals further than you could with HDMI cable alone (about 25 feet) and saves you money by using cheaper Cat5e/Cat6 cable for the longer distance delivery.

    The kit comes with five remote controls, including a main remote for controlling the Matrix directly, and four smaller remotes for controlling it from the rooms where the Cat5e/Cat6 receivers are located. Additionally, it comes with infrared repeaters, allowing you to control your source devices from the remote location(s). As a bonus, the receivers and/or matrix unit can be controlled with a computer using the RS232 interface.

    In addition to the Matrix's own remote controls, each receiver unit can receive the remote control signals from the remotes for your various source devices (blu-ray player, cable box, etc.). These IR signals are then transmitted back down the Cat5e/Cat6 cables to the main Matrix unit, which then distributes the IR signal to an IR emitter that corresponds to the source device feeding the signal to that receiver. This allows you to use identical source devices with identical remote control codes, yet still independently control each from the remote location, providing the emitters and devices are not positioned so that one can "see" the IR signal intended for the other.

    Features:

    • View any of up to 4 sources on any of up to 4 displays
    • Supports High Speed 1080p video
    • Supports 3D
    • Supports HDCP
    • Connect either or both displays directly, using HDMI cable, or up to 40 meters (131 feet) distant, using Cat5e/Cat6 cable and included receivers
    • Supports 225 MHz/2.25 Gbps per channel (6.75 Gbps all channel) bandwidth
    • Supports 12-bit per channel (36-bit all channel) deep color
    • Supports uncompressed audio such as LPCM
    • Supports compressed audio such as DTS® Digital, Dolby® Digital, DTS-HD Master Audio™, and Dolby TrueHD™
    • Includes five remote controls to select input devices for each output (one main remote for both outputs and four individual remotes for each output)
    • Select inputs using included remote controls, with switch on front of matrix, with switch on front of receivers, or with a computer using RS232 input
    • Includes infrared emitters to control source devices through remote receivers
    • Gold-plated HDMI connectors
    • CE, FCC, UL (Canadian and US), and RoHS compliant

    Note: Monoprice strongly recommends the use of minimum 24 AWG HDMI cables when connecting a device, such as this matrix, between the source and destination devices to ensure minimal signal loss and maximum High Speed signal reliability.


    For best results, use Cat6 STP cable whenever possible, especially for longer runs.

    worked good for a while...then not good

    • cashpot,
    •  Detroit, MI

    Pros: worked good while it worked

    Cons: didn't work as long as it should

    This product worked great for 2 years. Everything was functional, IR, picture quality, speed. Now the picture turns black, a screeching noise over speakers, followed by snowy screen, then nothing, just Black. Maybe 2 min later it comes on again for 5 min, then repeats the horrible and frustrating problem. It's obviously the power adapter (5V 5.5A) because people have had the same issue, replaced the power adapter and theirs is working fine again. But I cannot wrap my head around why MONOPRICE.com wouldn't sell these replacements? I live in Canada so ordering the PS to fix this costs me ~$50 from google PST-AC0560 - to fix the issues

    Flashing Blue Lights

    Pros: Great flexibility, especially for the price.

    Cons: Quirky. There is a very large gap in price between this unit and "professional" units that provide the same functionality. I would rather see Monoprice charge a little more and improve the quality of the components that cause these reliability issues.

    I originally purchased the unit about 3 years ago. I had to replace it once already. This time around, it failed with the flashing blue lights. Before deciding to replace this unit with a different model, I followed the advice in the post from Anonymous, Troy, MI. I purchased a 5v 8a DC power supply off eBay. The unit is working again.

    Like Anonymous, Troy, MI, no telling how long it will continue to work, but a $15 fix is better than purchasing another unit or an alternative that doesn't provide the same flexibility.

    Unreliable

    • Edward,
    •  Sherman Oaks, CA 
    • 3/12/2016 10:49:57 AM

    Pros: HDMI matrix works well

    Cons: No rack ears
    Unreliable CAT6 video transmission

    We're using this device to send one video source to multiple projectors. The idea was that the PJs are too far apart to run HDMI, so this would solve that problem. It has turned out that this device is the most unreliable piece of equipment on our show. Some times it will work fine, other times the image will suffer from severe degradation in the form of skewed colors and pixelization.

    Swapping cables (HDMI and CAT6) and receiver boxes doesn't solve the problem. In fact, I can't discern what does solve the problem except switching every cable out and back again, powering it down several times (both Rx and Tx) and jumping on one foot while rubbing your stomach and patting your head.

    I would much rather use an HDbaseT device, even though they cost 3 times as much. Having a reliable piece of equipment and NOT spending 45 minutes plugging in one projector is worth an extra $800. Also, no rack ears!? It's 19 in. wide, but doesn't come with ears to mount into a 19 in. rack!

    Hi Edward,

    Thank you for your review and sorry to hear of the signal issues you have experienced with this HDMI matrix. If you have not done so already, I would recommend getting in contact with our Tech Support team to see if there may be a solution or if a replacement can be set up for you. They would be best reached via online chat (6:00am - 6:00pm PST) or by phone at 877-271-2592 (6:00am - 5:00pm PST). My apologies again for the trouble and thank you for your feedback.

    first time I ever returned an item to Monoprice

    • BF,
    •  A, CA 
    • 2/29/2016 11:07:50 AM

    Cons: Too flaky to risk installing at a commercial site unless you want to spend your entire life there.

    I love Monoprice. This is the first product I have ever returned. With eager anticipation I purchased and installed this 8151 switch at a customer site. I messed with it for two days. I only had one source to test which was a new Samsung DVD player. I sent the signal to 4 Samsung TVs. The picture and sound were non-existent on one TV, and totally intermittent on the other three. All lights were correct. The unit was not defective. Live chatted with tech support and they told me the problem would be solved with 24 gauge HDMI cables. I replaced all of the HDMI cables which were only three feet long. My CAT5E runs were all less than 50 feet. Still didn't work right. I was embarrassed in front of the customer as I had promised any-to-any source-to-device compatibility. I have since come up with a different solution. I lost all of my labor time amounting to several times the cost of this switch. That's when I threw in the towel.

    Disappointment

    • Robin B,

    Pros: none

    Cons: Lack of reliability.
    Washed out color
    "Soft" definition picture

    While this matrix may be adequate for some applications, those where color saturation and clear clean lines are not a significant concern, it is not the right choice if you are looking for a truly Hi-Def experience. It is an excellent low cost low results option, but inadequate for the average viewer.
    The picture via HDMI and Cat 6 extender were equally soft in definition and pallid in color. I could get no sound from the cat 6 extender and the local HDMI connection was not consistent with the picture dropping out intermittently.
    I do know someone who has one which has operated consistently well with one and only one source (no switching to multiple displays, but he does not use the sound.
    Monoprice promptly responded to my return request and issued a refund within 24 hours of receiving my return. Excellent customer service in this regard.
