Input 2- 2%0d
Input 3- 3%0d
Input 4- 4%0d
*-Note don't send the input label, just send X%0d where X is the input number. I also had to crossover pins 2 and 3 on one end of the serial cable, straight through didn't work for me.
For reference, here are the connection information and commands:
The Command codes are “1” , ”2” , ”3” , ”4”
PROS: Easy to Set up, decently built.
CONS: Does not include RS232 Commnads. 5v Power Supply - Every other piece of SDI equipment I have uses a 12v.
-Works as advertised
-Switching between sources has about a 3 second delay (much better than the 13 seconds I was getting with my HDMI matrix)
-RS232 port works
PROS: Reliable SDI switcher at a great price
CONS: LED lights are pretty bright, but no big deal. Wish there was an 8x1
The serial commands posted by TVGuy are correct, thank you. When sending serial commands, you need to use a carriage return, rather than line feed.
Works with http://www.monoprice.com/product?p_id=2067 for usb to rs232 connection.
Wrote a little autoitscript to control it for direct switching to an input, with an auto switching based on window detection, now I can switch between inputs with out touching it or thinking about.
PROS: supports 3g sdi 1080p 60Hz, and rs232 control.
CONS: Not an instant or a production sdi switcher
No rack mount or mounting options of any kind.
PROS: Small, cheap, works.
CONS: Signal drops out when switching.
PROS: Fast switch
CONS: I would like a model with a button for each input to jump to that input. but for the price great product.
PROS: Small size, Metal case
