Summary: Howto and Tips for Using UHD-PRO3 IR and RS-232—This article provides helpful information relating to UHD-PRO3 IR and RS-232 control and pass-through.


 

Infrared Pass-Through

  • Each "IR IN" and "IR OUT" port is hardwired to the respective output zones.
    • You cannot route IR from port X to zone Y.
  • You must use an HDBaseT receiver which supports IR.
    • Atlona recommends the AT-UHD-EX-100CE-RX.
    • If your display device has a direct HDBaseT port, that display device must support HDBaseT 5Play to receive IR over HDBaseT.
  • Send signals into Atlona RX ports. Signals are sent from Atlona TX ports.

 

RS-232 Pass-Through

  • RS-232 commands can be routed to any output zone.
    • Commands can be sent from another control system into the UHD-PRO3 series matrix "MAIN" RS-232 port.
    • Commands can be received at the LAN port and sent as RS-232 out of any zone port.
    • RS-232 commands must be of the form: RS232zoneX[command] where X is the zone the command is to be routed to.
      • Example: RS232zone1[PWON]
  • You must use an HDBaseT receiver which supports RS-232.
    • Atlona recommends the AT-UHD-EX-100CE-RX.
    • If your display device has a direct HDBaseT port, that display device must support HDBaseT 5Play to receive RS-232 over HDBaseT.
  • Ensure the RS-232 zone output is set to the correct parameters specified by the devices you would like to control.
    • This setting is found on the "Control" page of the UHD-PRO3 series web GUI.
    • See this article for more information on accessing the web GUI.
  • If you are not using the feedback from your display device, leave the RX terminal at the HDBaseT receiver unconnected.
    • Some displays will send out excessive and unnecessary data and this can cause processing delays.
    • Make sure the floating RX wire cannot short against any shielding or the TX wire.
