Gefen EXT-HD-EDIDPN overview

  • 1Description

The HDMI EDID Detective Plus from Gefen keeps HDMI sources and displays in sync. This device has been designed specifically to ensure that a connected high-definition source sends compatible audio and video signals without losing the EDID (Extended Display Identification Data). This is done by recording the HDMI display EDID and making it available to the high definition source reliably and on a continuous basis.

With DDC re-clocking technology, the reliability of HDCP handshaking is improved, ensuring that the high definition source always receives the correct EDID. Using the Gefen EDID Tool+ PC software or terminal emulation via USB, the installer can also manipulate/modify the EDID data to meet installation-specific requirements and resolve system-specific compatibility issues. The device has been designed for quick and easy programming and installation.

    Gefen EXT-HD-EDIDPN reviews

    HDMI EDID Detective Plus is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Roku3 to Samsung SMART TV problem solved. I had a Roku3 EDID handshake problem. My Roku3 would work with my 15 inch Coby flat panel TV, but NOT with my Samsung Smart TVs, very frustrating. However, the Samsung would play from a DVD player and from a Chromcast device, so I knew it worked ok. I used the Gefen to capture the EDID handshake from the Roku3 to Coby TV connection that worked. Then switched the Gefen to playback and put it between the Samsung Smart TV and the Roku3. Worked great! I suspect the Roku3 to Samsung TV EDID handshake has a timing problem but the Gefen fixes that. A little pricey but I wanted to get to the root of the problem.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Problem solved This little device solved some problems in our professional environment in a matter of seconds. One of them was connecting any macbook to digital video switcher via HDMI. It can effectively filter HDCP in video signal thus making it compatible with any video switcher. Our particualr switcher in question is Sony MCS-8M.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Problem solver This little device solved all the problems we had connecting all sorts of laptops to our digital video switcher. The switcher in question is Sony MCS8M and it's especially problematic to connect any sort of Macbook to it. Not anymore.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works reliably. High price - but it's worth it I had an old GEFEN Detectiv HDMI since 2007 as component in my Media Center environement. After it has met its end of life I ordered the new one. It works as ecpected. For me it's unbelievable using a MCE without the GEFEN because of the often losing of HDMI signals.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't waste your money. Product didn't work at all. Never was able to read signal from devices. What a waste of money. False advertising at it's worst.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This one Worked for me Good unit, quick set up once I understood the directions. It appeared to fix my issue, and I think made the video sharper.
