Why the direct one to one connection cannot be used？
You must use a super Cat5 / 6e network cable (wire sequence T-568B), please check if the addresses of the DIP switches of the transmitter and receiver match.
Why does "Check input signal" appear on the screen?
The input signal is inaccessible, please check if the source of the HDMI input signal is connected normally. It is recommended to replace the shorter HDMI cable. Input signal recommended within 5 meters.
What does "Searching TX" on the screen mean?
The network cable is partially disconnected, please check if the network cable is normal. It is recommended to use Super Category 5 and Category 6 network cables.
Will this work over ethernet through a switch etc, or does it have to be a dedicated cable between the sender and receiver?
No. You need a direct Cat5/6/7 connection between the transmitter and receiver. This is not IP communication.
Can I run 1 transmitter to 2 receivers with a dedicated network switch?
No. It is a point to point extender. You may want to get one that has a two or three port.
Hooked it up exactly like the picture shows but the mouse and keyboard don't work?
You can try to download Driver Booster or slim drivers and see if it will install the drivers for it. You also may try a hardwired keyboard.
