Active digital video & audio six to one switch, remote controlled
Model TMDS61 Accepts any Remote Control
The TMDS61 is the most feature rich AND most compatible
switch available today. At the heart of this product is a cutting edge
active TMDS (transition minimized differential signaling) switch instead of the
typical DVI or HDMI decoder & encoder. This new technology enables our
product to switch and amplify the signals only at the electrical level, while
leaving the protocol and encryption levels completely unchanged! The
result is a high performance product which is fully compatible with all current AND
future forms of DVI & HDMI. A further benefit is you never need to
worry about future HDCP encryption problems or incompatibilities, our switch
does not modify the source to display interaction in any way.
TMDS61 is one of the only switches on the market which is compatible with ALL
the features in HDMI 1.3. Most 1.3 compliant switches support only the
mandatory features. TMDS61 will pass ALL the features, including the
Deep Color enhanced video delivered by Playstation 3! Don't let your
switch be the limiting factor in your home theater.
The TMDS61 can support the following typical applications
- Switching 3 HDMI & 3 DVI inputs to 1 display/receiver/storage
- Switching 6 HDMI inputs to 1 display (with 3 HDMI/DVI
- Switching 6 DVI inputs to 1 display (with 3 DVI/HDMI
- Switching 6 digital audio inputs (4 optical, 2 coax) to 1
set of transcoded digital audio outputs (coax and optical)
This unit delivers ultra clean noise performance and has
selectable output high frequency amplification for driving long cables.
The TMDS61 is also the easiest switch on the market to setup and use. Our proprietary ZeroKey technology allows
switching to be performed by any key on any remote. No need for
separate remotes or remote programming.

The TMDS61 switch can be controlled manually by toggle button,
or by remote control. The remote control interface uses ZeroKey infrared
code cloning to map any remote control key to each one of the four video & audio
Here are the steps to program the TMDS61 for your remote.
- Press the toggle button to select the input you would like
- Hold the toggle button for 3 seconds and release
- The LED indicator for the selected channel will now flash
continuously, this means it is ready to be programmed
- Aim your remote control at the TMDS61 and press the key you
would like to use to select this input
- The LED indicator will stop flashing, this means the code
has been stored.
- Repeat for the other inputs (up to 6 total).
ZeroKey technology is compatible with virtually all remote
controls and does not interfere with the normal operation of the remote.
The best way to use this is to program the TMDS61 with the same keys you normally
push to switch your AV receiver or TV. The TMDS61 will switch at the same
time as your TV or receiver without the need for complicated macros or pushing
ZeroKey programming is stored in flash memory, and you will
not need to reprogram even if you lose power. If you buy a new remote in
the future, don't worry, the TMDS61 can be reprogrammed as much as you like.
You can also use a programmable remote such as the Pronto to
control TMDS61. You can download the Pronto codes needed
