How it Works

The WyreStorm SP0108 splitter is connected using an HDMI cable from the SkyHD HDMI output to the HDMI splitter input. There is a single HDMI output for direct connection of an HDMI cable to a local HDTV (or into another splitter for cascading into large systems) and another 7 outlets over Cat5e/6. The WyreStorm SP-UTP0108 splitter supports 720i, 720p, 1080i and 1080p resolutions.

You will need one receiver for each remote TV. These are not included in the price shown.

WyreStorm HDMI over Cat5e/6 receivers - wall mount (RX-50IR-PRO-IW) or free standing (RX-50IR-PRO)

The optional WyreStorm RX-50IR-PRO receivers use dual STP/UTP LAN cables (Cat5e/6) to substitute for the HDMI cables to achieve long range transmission. Using these US style extenders, the HDMI 1080p signals can be transmitted up to 50 metres with Cat6 cable (less for Cat5e cable).

Data transmission rates support the HDMI 1080P signal. LED indicators show the power and video signal status.

The receivers handle the infrared control signal of the matrix and source equipment in addition to the HDMI signal.

If you only have a single Cat6 cable, please call and ask for the RX-50-PRO receiver (NB without IR).

WyreStorm RX-50IR-PRO
With the WyreStorm RX-50IR-PRO HDMIv1.3b is supported with data transmission rates of up to 2.25Gbits. Also this receiver has an EDID setting function, to ensure the compatibility with the greatest variety of equipment. The RX-50IR-IW unit has built-in ESD (Electro Static Discharge) protection to avoid interference of the AV quality.

WyreStorm RX-50IR-PRO-IW
The RX-50IR-PRO-IW wall mount receivers can fit any of the US style faceplates that we supply, for other finishes and styles, and back boxes to suit, see here.

To puchase these optional extenders see "compatible products" below.

For longer distances, you can add a WyreStorm HDMI Cat6 repeater. There are two versions available:

a WyreStorm Dual UTP HDMI repeater for systems using twin Cat5e/6 cables and
a WyreStorm Single UTP HDMI repeater for systems using a single Cat5e/6 cable
NB. Do not run the Cat5e/6 cable through a patch panel or terminate on RJ45 wall outlets as this will reduce the maximum operational distance significantly.

Connecting TVs with different resolutions

This system, like all HDMI matrix switchers and distribution amplifiers, can only output a single resolution to all screens/projectors. Normally this is determined by the display device connected to output 1. Thus if you connect a 720p screen to output 1 all other screens will have to be 720p or set to 720p even if they are capable of 1080p.

If you connect a 1080p screen to output 1, then you either have to have all 1080p display devices on outputs 2, 3 and 4, or you have to downscale the 1080p output to 720p on each output. Without doing this the resolution of 1080p will just give you a blank screen on that output.

This leaves you with two options, either upgrade your screens or downscale (or upscale) the resolutions using a scaler. This is where the TV One 1T-VS-626 HDMI scaler is used. The 1T-VS-626 can also take audio on a separate Toslink input, eg from a SkyHD box at the central loation and merge it into the HDMI output signal for subsequent distribution around your home.
