    Is there a version that supports HDR?
    A shopper on Jan 16, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: Hi Shopper, At this time there is not. We are working on an HDR version, hopefully it will be available soon.
    Hello, is there a IP or RS232 driver for control4 systems?

    BEST ANSWER: Not at this time.
    Does this unit come with IR receivers/emitters?
    Michael M on Apr 11, 2018
    Can I use any remote with the IR feature?
    Jacob E on Jul 17, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Understand that there are several different IR features. 1) the device itself can be controlled via is remote. it receives these commands via an IR Receiver on a cable that plugs into "IR Eye" 3.5 port on the matrix. It comes with that IR receiver. 2) It can pass IR signals from the TV location back to the matrix location. For this you need to plug in an IR receiver into the remote HDBaseT device's IR In port and an IR emitter into the IR out port on the matrix. 3) It can pass IR signals from the matrix location to the remote TV. Tor this you need to connect a separate IR receiver and emitter to the opposite ports ("in" on the matrix and "out" on the remote HDBaseT device). Each of the HDBaseT connections have 4 IR ports -- two to enable passing IR from the remote TV and two to enable passing IR to the remote TV. It does not come with these IR receivers and emitters.

    In general, the IR passing features will pass the signal of any remote. It depends on the carrier frequency of the particular remote but I think that is pretty standardized so it generally works.

    The IR control feature works well with learning remotes. To use the included remote, you press multiple keys for each operation (like input 1 key -> output 2 key -> enter key) but it only sends a IR command when you press "enter". So you end up with one IR command that you can learn into a particular learning remote's key or function.
    Does this unit support full CEC functionality?

    Is this item rack mountable? If so does it come with brackets for a 19inch rack?
    Barry H on Jul 10, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: It is smaller in height and width than a 19" device. It comes with two L brackets that mount to the ends which provide mounting holes to screw it into a wall. It also comes with 4 small angle brackets. Two can be attached per side which gives it the same general shape as rack ears but are much smaller than 19" mounting ears. So no, its not 19" rack compatible.
    Looking at using this for my business. Should the cables be directly between devices or is it possible to involve a patch panel?
    A shopper on Sep 20, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Yes. I have the 8x8 version. I have CAT6 from 6 TVs to a central location punched down to a patch panel. 3 ft CAT6 from the patch panel to the matrix and 3 ft CAT6 from TV to the receiver.
    The title says the it is HDCP 2.2 but the specs and manual says it is HDCP 1.4, Which is it?
    Marc L on Jul 18, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: The entire set is HDCP 2.2

    What transmit distances will you get when using Cat 5e vs the recommended Cat6? Will it even work at all?

    Which IR bands does this support?
    Daryl C on Mar 10, 2018
    When I read the instructions and description, I am assuming I need to use the included remote to change what input is being sent to what location TV I am watching. As an example on my Output 1, I can choose input 1 -4. So can someone confirm that I have to use the included remote to do this? If so, am I correct to assume that as long as I have an IR receiver plugged in at every receiver, when using the remove at that location will automatically allow me to change the inputs for that specific TV - ie I can walk around my house with the same remove and change the output settings for each location?

    Will this unit support 108p resolution at 120 hrtz?
    George S on Feb 14, 2018
    Is there a noticeable delay between the HDMI output and the HDbaseT outputs if the TVs are fairly close to each other? My previous experience with direct HDbaseT has seen there be about .8-1.0 seconds of delay. If you're replicating to TVs in the same room and switch them all to the same input, will the HDMI-connected TV be slightly ahead of the others or does it compensate for this somehow? I don't want to have audio offset jitter between my displays.

    Works great
    We use this for the screen in our church auditorium. It is simple to use. We have about 150' of shielded cat6 between the unit and the projector. There is no lag between the audio of the computer that is hooked into our sound system and the image on the screen. I also purchased a digital to analog audio converter for our Blue Ray player but have not been able to check it yet. I would recommend this unit to others and I already have.
