The CHD-110 is an HDMI communicator that fixes most of the EDID handshake and HDCP copyright related problems. Female to male pigtail does not need mounting. A must for all AV installers.
Troubleshoot first before using this product:
One of the most common and puzzling symptoms of any HDMI based system is that the display having a flashing or snowy picture or no picture at all, even if the system is well designed and installed and each component is tested thoroughly. The 2 most likely causes of this problem are 1) the system does not have enough bandwidth or the cable is too long for the signal data rate; 2) the DDC (hand shaking or copyright) communication breaks down. First bring the source device next to the display and connect the two directly with a short (6') HDMI
cable to verify if the display is compatible with the source. Lower the source device output data rate (primarily the resolution) by one step (e.g., from 1080p to 1080i/720p, or from 1080i/720p to 480p), then
reconnect the source device back to its original place in the system. If the picture comes out, then you know the problem with the system before was caused by not enough bandwidth of the system.Add a
Luxi Extender, P/N LXL-EHD-111 at the display input to fix the problem. If the picture still does not come out after lowering the resolution, then most likely it's a DDC communication problem and use this product to fix it. External power is not always required; it draws power from source device first. If not enough, then external power.
This product can draw power from the source device via HDMI cable or from the optional external power supply. To determine if the source device has enough power to power this device, connect this device in
between the source and display devices via a short HDMI cable. If a normal picture appears on screen, then this device can get enough power from the source device and no need for an external power supply. If no normal picture on screen, then it needs an external power supply. You can buy the optional Luxi power supply (P/N LXL-PWA-052U.)
