TMDS61: Digital video & audio 6:1 switch
Product ID: TMDS61
TMDS61: Digital video & audio 6:1 switch

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 digital video 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.

Ideal for Playstation 3:  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 device
  • Switching 6 HDMI inputs to 1 display (with 3 HDMI/DVI cables)
  • Switching 6 DVI inputs to 1 display (with 3 DVI/HDMI cables)
  • 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.

ZeroKey technology

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 inputs.  Here are the steps to program the TMDS61 for your remote.

  1. Press the toggle button to select the input you would like to train
  2. Hold the toggle button for 3 seconds and release
  3. The LED indicator for the selected channel will now flash continuously, this means it is ready to be programmed
  4. Aim your remote control at the TMDS61 and press the key you would like to use to select this input
  5. The LED indicator will stop flashing, this means the code has been stored.
  6. 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 extra buttons!

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 here
