Plug the HDMI cable into the panel connection (see the illustration at right, 1). 3 2. Loosen the HDMI connection mounting screw from the panel enough to allow the LockIt lacing bracket to be placed over it (2). The screw does not have to be removed. 2 3. Place the LockIt lacing bracket (3) on the screw and against the HDMI connector, then 1 tighten the screw to secure the bracket. ATTENTION: • Do not overtighten the HDMI connector mounting screw. The shield it fastens to 3 is very thin and can easily be stripped. • Ne serrez pas trop la vis de montage du connecteur HDMI. Le blindage auquel 4 elle est attachée est très fin et peut facilement être dénudé. 4. Loosely place the included tie wrap around the HDMI connector and the LockIt lacing bracket as shown (4). 5. While holding the connector securely against the lacing bracket, use pliers or similar tool to tighten the tie wrap, then remove any excess length. Front Panel Features The front panel buttons have primary and secondary functions. The table on the next page contains descriptions of some of the basic functions. For more details, see the DXP HD 4K PLUS Series User Guide, available at extron.com. Each button has an LED beside it. These bicolor LEDs light green when video is selected and red when audio is selected. D F

DXP 42 HD 4K PLUS Front Panel A Power and Reset LED — This green LED lights steadily while the switcher has power. In addition, while you are holding the Reset button, the LED blinks every 3 seconds to indicate the level of reset that will occur if the button is released at that point. RESET B Reset button — This recessed button initiates four levels (modes) of reset. Use a pointed object such as a small screwdriver to press and hold the Reset button. • Factory firmware reset (mode 1) — Hold the Reset button while powering up the switcher to restore the DXP to the factory firmware for a single power cycle. This type of reset maintains all the current user settings, such as audio adjustments, IP settings, and the configuration. • IP settings reset (mode 4) — While the DXP is running, press and hold the Reset button until the LED blinks twice (approximately 6 seconds). Release the button and press it again momentarily to reset the switcher IP settings. • Absolute reset (mode 5) — While the DXP is running, press and hold the Reset button until the LED blinks three times (approximately 9 seconds). Release the button and press it again momentarily to restore the switcher to the default factory conditions. This reset, equivalent to the E ZQQQ } SIS command, removes the initial serial number passwords that are set at the factory and resets them to no password. NOTE: The factory configured passwords for all accounts on this device have been set to the device serial number. In the event of a complete system reset (Mode 5), the passwords convert to the default, which is no password. 4 C Config port — This USB mini-B port serves a similar communications function to the rear panel Remote RS-232 port, but is easier to access than the rear port after the matrix switcher has been installed and cabled. Use a USB type A to mini B cable to connect this port to a USB connector on the computer to enable SIS commands to be sent from the computer, connection to the PCS configuration software, and uploading firmware. Front Panel Button Functions Primary Function Secondary Functions D Input buttons Select inputs. View ties. E Output buttons Select outputs. View ties. F Signal LEDs — The DXP has a green Signal LED for each input. Each LED lights when a signal (TMDS clock activity) is present on the input. G HDCP LEDs — The DXP has a green HDCP LED for each input. Each of these LEDs lights if the source connected to its input is HDCP encrypted. Operation Creating Ties A tie is an input-to-output connection. Ties can be made using the front panel buttons, SIS commands, or PCS. You can tie an input to one or more outputs. NOTES: • A "Set of ties" is an input tied to two or more outputs. (An output can never be tied to more than one input.) • A "Configuration" is one or more ties, one or more sets of ties, or a combination. • Audio ties can be made only with de-embedded audio. • Audio ties cannot be made using the front panel buttons. However, they can be created using PCS or SIS commands.
To make ties: 1. Press an input button on the front panel (see the illustration at right). The LED next to it lights. • If the selected input is already tied to one or more outputs, the tied output LEDs light. • If you press the tied output button, the output is disconnected (untied) from the input. The LED lights to indicate the selection. 1
2. Within 5 seconds, press the output button or buttons to which the input is to be tied. All selected output LEDs light, then turn off after 5 seconds. The illustration at right shows a tie between input 1 and output 1. NOTE: If no output is selected within 5 seconds, the input LED turns off and no tie is made to the input. To break existing ties: The input LED lights to indicate the selected input. Input Output 1 1 After 5 seconds, all LEDs turn off. The output LED lights to indicate the output is tied to the selected input.
1. Press the button for the input to be untied. The LEDs for the tied outputs light. 2. Press the output button to be untied. The output button LED turns off, indicating that the tie is broken. Viewing Ties
• To view ties to an input: Press the desired input button. The button LEDs light for all outputs that are tied to that input. The illustration at right shows a tie between input 1 and output 1. Pressing the input 1 button causes its LED to light. The output 1 button LED also lights, indicating that a tie exists between input 1 and output 1. • To view ties to an output: Press the desired output button. The LED for the selected output button lights. In addition, the button LEDs for the tied input and for all outputs tied to that input light. Press an output button. The output button LED lights.

5 DXP 42 HD 4K PLUS Series • Setup Guide (Continued) Locking and Unlocking the Front Panel (Executive Mode) Lock mode (executive mode) limits control of the DXP 42 from the front panel, so that functions such as input switching and output muting are not allowed from the front panel. The executive mode selection remains in effect after a power cycle. The matrix switcher front panel buttons can be locked and unlocked using the following SIS commands (see the Front Panel Lock (Executive) Modes commands on page 8 for information on issuing SIS commands to the unit): • To lock the front panel buttons, enter 1X. • To unlock the front panel, enter 0X. Remote Configuration and Control You can send SIS commands over an Ethernet link (rear panel RJ-45 LAN port, see figure 2, E, on page 2), a serial connection (rear panel Remote RS-232 port, D), or USB (front panel Config port, see figure 5, C, on page 4). The network connection procedure is described below. For information about the serial and USB connections, as well as a complete list of the available SIS commands, see the DXP HD 4K PLUS Series User Guide, available at extron.com. Establishing a Network (Ethernet) Connection To establish a network connection: 1. Open a TCP socket to port 23 using the switcher IP address. NOTE: The factory default IP address is 192.168.254.254. You can change this address using SIS commands, the PCS configuration software, or the internal web page (see the DXP 42 HD 4K PLUS User Guide, available at extron.com, for instructions). The switcher responds with a message consisting of the copyright date, the name of the product, firmware version, part number, and the current date and time. For example, with an internet connection: (c) Copyright 20nn, Extron Electronics, DXP 42 HD 4K Plus, Vn.nn, 60-1678-01 ] Ddd, DD Mmm YYYY HH:MM:SS ] NOTES: • If the switcher is not password-protected, the device is now ready to accept SIS commands. • If the switcher is password-protected, a password prompt appears. 2. If the switcher is password-protected, enter the password. NOTE: The factory configured passwords for all accounts on this device have been set to the device serial number. In the event of a complete system reset (Mode 5), the passwords convert to the default, which is no password. 3. If the password is accepted, the switcher responds with Login User or Login Administrator. 4. If the password is not accepted, the Password prompt reappears (see your network admin for the assigned password). Connection timeouts The Ethernet link times out and disconnects after a designated period of no communications. By default, this timeout value is set to 5 minutes but the value can be changed. NOTE: Extron recommends leaving the default timeout at 5 minutes and periodically issuing the Query (Q) command to keep the connection active or disconnecting the socket and reopening the connection when necessary. Number of connections A switcher can have up to 200 simultaneous TCP connections, including all HTTP sockets and Telnet connections. When the connection limit is reached, the switcher accepts no new connections until some have been closed. No error message or indication is given that the connection limit has been reached. To maximize performance of your switcher, keep the number of connections low and close unnecessary open sockets. SIS Commands The switchers have SIS commands that you can use for operation and configuration. You can issue these commands from a PC or control system connected to the DXP serial port, USB port, or Ethernet port (see Rear Panel Connections on page 2 for connection information). 6 Host-to-switcher instructions The switcher accepts SIS commands through the LAN port, the Remote (RS-232) port, or the front panel USB Config port. SIS commands consist of one or more characters per command field. They do not require any special characters to begin or end the command character sequence. Each switcher response to an SIS command ends with a carriage return and a line feed (CR/LF = ]), which signals the end of the response character string. A string is one or more characters. NOTE: Input and output numbers in commands can be entered as one-digit, two-digit, or three-digit numbers. All input and output numbers are reported as two-digit numbers in the response. Verbose mode Telnet connections to a switcher can be used to monitor for changes that occur on the switcher, such as front panel operations and SIS commands from other Telnet sockets or a serial port. For a Telnet session to receive change notices from the switcher, the Telnet session must be in verbose mode 1 or 3 (see the Set verbose mode command on page 9). NOTE: If tagged responses is enabled (modes 2 and 3), all view commands return the same constant string and the value as the set command does (for example, the view matrix name command E CN}, returns Ipn • X3) ]).
