Hardware Installation

  1. Power off all devices including your HDMI source and HDMI display(s).
  2. Connect your HDMI source device to the 1×4 HDMI 1.4 Splitter/Extender’s HDMI In connector with an HDMI cable (HDMI cable not included).
  3. Connect your CAT6/7 cables between the Splitter/ Extender and CAT6/7 Receivers.
  4. Optional: Connect an HDMI display to the HDMI Out connector of the Splitter/Extender using an HDMI cable (HDMI cable not included). This connection is needed only if you require local monitoring of the HDMI signal.
  5. Connect an HDMI display to each CAT6/7 Receiver’s HDMI Out connector with an HDMI cable (HDMI cables not included).
  6. Optional: Connect the IR Receiver cables and the IR Emitter cable to the IR interface ports. This connection is needed only if you need to control your HDMI devices from a remote location. See IR Control, starting on page 9, for proper IR connection.
  7. Plug the included power adapter into the Splitter/ Extender’s Power Jack, then plug the power adapter into a reliable power outlet. Note: The CAT6/7 Receivers do not need power adapters, they can be powered from the Splitter/Extender over CAT cable with PoC technology.
  8. Power on your HDMI source device and HDMI display(s). The Splitter/Extender is ready for use.

CAT Cable Wiring
We suggest both RJ-45 connectors be wired identically using the T568B wiring standard for the best performance and compatibility. Both connectors must be wired identically, to the T568B standard.

Note: You may use cat5e. cat6 UTP (cat6 preferred) in conjunction with the RJ45 output: however for best performance use cat6a or cat7 (particularly in electrically noisy environments). The maximum distances & transmission performance for HDMI and USB may be compromised by cable quality and patch panels. poor termination, wall plates. cable kinks and electrical interferences. Generally, ensure the cat cable is a solid copper core of 23AWG (avoid CCA type). in one straight run (avoid/minimize patches) and avoid close proximity to any noisy electrical sources.
IR Control
Provides IR control of the connected devices. The IR feature is bi-directional so either the source device or the display device(s) can be remotely controlled. Controlling the Source Device

  1. Connect an IR Emitter Cable to the IR Out port of the Splitter/Extender.
  2. Point the IR Emitter Cable’s IR eye in line with the source device’s IR window.
  3. Connect an IR Receiver Cable to the IR In port on each CAT6/7 Receiver

Controlling the Display Device(s) using IR In
Allows you to remotely control each display individually.

  1.  Connect an IR Receiver Cable to the IR In the port of the Splitter/Extender.
  2. Connect an IR Emitter Cable to the IR Out port on each CAT6/7 Receiver.
  3. Point the IR Emitter Cable’s IR eye in line with the display’s IR window.gofanco HDExt4P-HD14 1x4 HDMI 1.4 Splitter Extender - IR Emitter

Controlling the Display Device(s) using IR All-In Port
Allows remote controlling of all of the display devices simultaneously.
1. Connect an IR Receiver Cable to the IR All-In port of the Splitter/Extender.
2. Connect an IR Emitter Cable to the IR Out port on each CAT6/7 Receiver.
3. Point the IR Emitter Cable’s IR eye in line with the display’s IR window.gofanco HDExt4P-HD14 1x4 HDMI 1.4 Splitter Extender - fig 4

Note:
The IR All In will relay the received IR signal to all the CAT6/7 outputs whereas the IR IN connectors associated with each CAT6/7 output will only relay the IR signal to its respective CAT6/7 Receiver. The Splitter/Extender’s IR Out connector will output the IR signals received from any of the CAT6/7 Receivers, so as to allow control of a source from any of the remote CAT6/7 Receivers.

FAQ & Troubleshooting

Q: Poor video quality or no video signal on display:
A1: Check whether the HDMI cables are connected properly and are in good working condition.
A2: Make sure the resolution of the display is compatible with the splitter’s resolution
Q: No HDMI signal output from the CAT6/7 connectors while the local HDMI out port is working normally:
A1: Check whether the HDMI cables are connected properly and are in good working condition.
Q: Splash screen on the displays:
A1: Cause of damaged or low-quality HDMI cables. Change to a higher-quality HDMI cable.
