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.

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.

Great Little Switcher

  • KingEdward3753,

Pros: Features for the price.
Complete package system.

Cons: A little quirky. The IR repeater system isn't always reliable. Fluorescent lights seem to interfere with the Rx. Sometimes, the switcher will indicate that its switching, but the Rx will not follow. A reboot of the main switcher always fixes this. I'm waiting to see if a UPS fixes this. Clean power on inexpensive electronics is always a good plan.

Didn't try the RS232 control although I eventually will.
So inexpensive, it concerns me. Bought one and it works as advertised. First unit lasted about 3 months, then failed, but it wasn't a warranty thing, I believe it was hit by lightning during a storm. Added a UPS and purchased a new unit and we're back in business. At this price, I cannot complain.
Do not skimp on the Cat6. Do exactly as specified for the cabling. My longest run is 100ft and it is delivering 1080p with good quality.

Great solution - while it works

  • Jack,

Pros: When it works it does a great job, easy setup and smooth switching between sources from local and remote TV's.

Cons: It doesn't last long. Monoprice really needs to get on the manufacturer in China to beef up their quality control.

I have just ordered my 5th unit. 1 was DOA (loses sound & video for 5 seconds about every 15 minutes on the local HDMI connection), 1 lasted 2 months, 1 for 11 months and the other for 14 months. I am using a local HDMI connection and 2 remotes via 75' of 24AWG CAT6 shielded cable. Monoprice has a great product here, it is just unfortunate that they can't enforce any degree of quality control over this one. I don't seem to be the only one with this experience.

When it is working it provides an excellent 1080P clear picture to one local and two remote TV's. My only complaint with the overall design is the brightness of the LEDs in a darkened room, but a set of LightDims takes care of this problem. I keep hoping against all reason that the next unit will work for at least a few years. I highly recommend an extended warranty.

Same ongoing issue

  • Igor,
  • 8/3/2015 6:09:52 PM

Pros: Great functionality, in some cases one of the best solutions, but unfortunately doesn't last long.

Cons: All units break right after the warranty expiration - flashing LED lights and no signal.

I installed 5 units to my customers, but all of them lasted for a little bit over a year, which is when the warranty expires. I received many complaints from my customers and had to hurriedly find some different solutions. Now I have these broken units at home that are nothing but expensive garbage for over $300 each. The solution I was offered was to order the same new ones at the bulk order price, which is not an acceptable solution for me.

unreliable, at best

  • Anonymous,

Pros: When it works, it works.
Distributes everything I use it for without a problem... until....

Cons: slow to sync on device power on.
Really, really bright lights, lots of them. Cover them with electrical tape and you fly blind. Boo.
power hungry and no standby, it/they are either on or off.
after a power outage, this octopus may, or may not work.

I lost one port on the main unit after a couple months. no big deal, I was only using three at the time, then I lost another port. etc, etc. Now I'm down to one input and 2 outputs working. On the receiver side, I've got 3 still working, one died some time ago.

When it works, this unit is good, no complaints. I've bought a lot of tech from Monoprice, most has been good, but I'd advise staying away from this unit. Too sketchy. Generally a poor implementation. I'm reluctant to try newer single cat 6 cable distribution system due to problems with this unit. I'll likely revert to running HDMI cables and 'traditional' splitters, that seems reliable.

Thank you for your review on PID 8151. Just to verify, which ports on the matrix have stopped working exactly? Regarding the receivers, did the one that died stop powering on completely or is it turning on but failing to output a signal? Can you describe to me your setup a bit more such as what devices are connected, the length and gauge of the HDMI cables in use, and the length and type of Cat cables? Also, do you happen to have the order number for this purchase? Please let me know so we can look into this matter further. Thank you in advance!
