    I can't seem to find the IP Address for controlling via a web browser. I've searched my routers logs/connections, and nothing. Is there a default IP address or a way to see what IP address the device is using?
    Charles P on Jul 22, 2017
    What are the commands to control by rs232?
    Where is the software for this device downloaded?

    Can you use a single cat5e as well?
    Christopher L on Jul 10, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. You can use a Cat5e cable as well. We would highly recommend the use of Cat6 cables for a more reliable signal.
    Okay, so you supply one remote to change the matrix itself, the customer must obtain the remote for the device selected on the matrix(blue ray player), is there a way to change the device you require at the television, so to select a different input at the tv?
    New User U on Jul 12, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Each receiver has a IR in which is used to send IR signals to both the matrix and the input you are connecting to - instead of buying multiple remotes, I have Logitech Harmony's in each room which control the inputs and the Matrix. the Matrix is in the Harmony database for easy installation
    Is the telnet or rs232 protocol published anywhere?
    A shopper on Aug 23, 2017

    If I connect 4 different input devices and 4 different output output devices. Can I play these combinations ?
    1. Input 1 on Output 1 & 2; Input 2 on Output 3 & 4
    2. Input 1 on Output 1; Input 2 on Output 2; Input 3 on Output 3; Input 4 on Output 4
    3. Input 1 on all 4 outputs
    New User U on Oct 16, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Yes, the combinations you list are all possible. We have just installed this device and it works very well.

    In fact, as it's a matix switcher, it allows you to have any combination you require.
    This says 4K in the title but the specs has max resolution of 1080. Which is it?
    Nigel M on Jul 29, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Hi Nigel,

    The extender portion of this matrix is limited to 1080p video resolution. The HDMI outputs for this device are 4K compatible. So the unit is fully 4K compliant. If you are looking for a Matrix that will extend 4K video over an ethernet cable, we would recommend a unit like PID 27841. Regards,
    Can I take a single input to all outputs on this device?
    A shopper on Jul 5, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Yes you can.
    Thanks!
    So the remotes you would use from the televisions in away from the matrix, where do I purchase them? How long are the ir sensor leads?

    Is it possible to have more than one remote control for this product?
    A shopper on Jun 15, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. The unit would only come with one remote control for the Matrix. For your other devices connected to the unit, you can use multiple remote controls from your devices. We would not carry the remote control separate from the unit. I hope this helps.
    I need to transition from SD signal over VGA to HDMI. We will be all HDMI over the next year, but was wondering if anyone is using this box for HDMI to TV/projectors with SD signal? I will have a converter from VGA to HDMI or it may be SD-SDI to hdmi.
    Ira H on Oct 18, 2017
    Will this work with a 1080p@50hz signal (ie. the Uk standard) ? I presume it would as it says upto 1080p@60hz?
