Introduction
HDMI-TPS-TX86 and -RX86 twisted-pair HDBaseT TM
extenders provide an extension of uncompressed 4K/UHD video with embedded audio for long distances over a single CATx cable.
The extender offers uni-directional RS-232 and IR pass-through on the same CATx cable that carries the video signal. The TPS extenders support full HDCP and EDID compliance and work on all standard AV resolutions and also 120 Hz 3D signals. 12V remote powering is available through the single CATx cable, but a local power supply can also be used.
Compatible Devices
It is not recommended to be used with third-party HDBaseT TM
devices due to the special remote powering feature of the device.

TPS Link Modes
The TPS working mode between the transmitter and the receiver parties is determined by the mode set in them. Both parties influence the setting that determines the final TPS transmission mode. The following TPS modes are defined:

  • Long reach (LR): Longer CATx cable length, less bandwidth (limited resolution). The LPPF mode is not available in LR TPS link mode.
  •  HDBaseT TM (HDBT): more bandwidth (higher resolutions), shorter CATx cable length. If no video is present, the units change to LPPF mode automatically.
  •  Low Power Partial Functionality (LPPF): Only RS-232 and IR are extended.

Toggling Between TPS Link Modes

The toggle switch on the extenders can be used to toggle between the LR and Auto TPS modes. If both units have an Auto state and there is a valid video signal on the transmitter, the common mode will bed bt. If the video signal disappears, devices go into LPPF mode.
TPS mode between an extender and a port of a matrix board

If an extender and a TPS matrix board are paired, the board forces the extender to use the settings of the matrix. The extender’s TPS mode switch has no effect.LIGHTWARE HDMI-TPS-RX86 HDBaseT Receiver with Integrated Scaler User Guide  & troubleshooting 4LIGHTWARE HDMI-TPS-RX86 HDBaseT Receiver with Integrated Scaler User Guide  & troubleshooting 5 Always use the Auto mode with third-party devices!

Bi-directional Pass-through Data Lines
The direction of the video extension is fixed from TX towards RX, but the pass-through datalines are bi-directional. It means the RS-232 and IR source and sink devices can be connected either to the TX or the RX.

Infra-Red (IR)
One emitter and one detector is enough for remote controlling one IR sink device. If there is an IR sink device to be controlled next to the TX and the other one is next to the RX, two emitter-detector pairs are needed. The IR emitter and the detector have standard 3.5 mm TRS (jack) connectors. The emitter’s plug has two poles (mono) and the detector’s plug has three poles (stereo).

RS-232
Third-party devices with standard RS-232 port are supported, as the extenders work in pass- through mode. TX and RX provide a 9-pole D-sub female connector. Use straight-serial cable to connect a DTE device to an extender and use a cross serial cable in case of pairing a DCE device to the other TPS extender. The RS-232 options – the baud rate and the parity bits – are set on the third party devices and they can be anything. The extenders support any kind of serial settings. The signal levels are the following:

Output voltage (V)
Logic low level 15-Mar
Logic high level -18

Connecting Steps

LIGHTWARE HDMI-TPS-RX86 HDBaseT Receiver with Integrated Scaler User Guide  & troubleshooting 13

CATx Connect the TPS output port of the Transmitter to the TPS input port of the
Receiver by a CATx cable.
HDMI Connect a source to the HDMI (DVI-D) input port of the transmitter.
IR Connect an IR emitter unit to the IR output port of the transmitter.
HDMI Connect a sink device to the HDMI (DVI-D) output port of the receiver.
RS-232 Connect a serial cable between the sink device and the RS-232 port of the receiver.
IR Connect an IR detector unit to the IR input port of the receiver.
Power Firstly connect the power adaptor to the DC input of the power injector, then secondly to the AC power socket.

Power Supply Options

The extenders can be powered by any of the following ways:

  1. Local adaptor: 12V DC input for local power supply.
    LIGHTWARE HDMI-TPS-RX86 HDBaseT Receiver with Integrated Scaler User Guide  & troubleshooting 14
  2. Remote power: The extender pair can power each other when one of them is locally supplied with 12V DC adaptor. The extender sends remote power via the TPS IN (on the receiver) or the TPS OUT (on the transmitter) RJ45 connector to other device.

LIGHTWARE HDMI-TPS-RX86 HDBaseT Receiver with Integrated Scaler User Guide  & troubleshooting 15

LIGHTWARE HDMI-TPS-RX86 HDBaseT Receiver with Integrated Scaler User Guide  & troubleshooting 16Read carefully all the detailed instructions about remote powering devices! Never use remote powering with third-party units!

Maximum Extension Distances

The values below are valid when the transmitter is powered by a local adaptor; distances may
