When you first turn on the V-160HD, it is set to mix all XLR, RCA, and embedded input audio at their current levels and output the mix via the video and USB outputs. You can adjust the levels using a combination of the Audio Input/Output menus and iPad Remote App.

 

If you are using the USB Streaming Output, make sure that both the Master Output and USB Stream knobs are turned up to 0 dB.

CONNECTING LAPTOPS


On your PC or Mac, there are two ways to set up the HDMI output to your V-160HD: Duplicate and Extend. Duplicate creates a copy of your Desktop, including your Taskbar or Dock. Your mouse will appear on both screens. Extend creates a clean desktop, and you can move your mouse between the two.

HDCP TROUBLESHOOTING


The V-160HD supports many video source devices, but DVD/Blu-Ray players and Streaming Boxes require HDCP to be turned on in the system settings. Once enabled, the signal will pass through.

 

But there are exceptions. If the V-160HD's HDMI output is connected to a recording or streaming device, or a converter that outputs SDI or Analog video, that device will block the DVD/Blu-Ray player's HDCP copy-protected signal passing through the switcher.

 

So long as the only destination devices are displays or projectors, then you should not have any issues with enabling HDCP.

 

On the V-160HD, turning on HDCP will also disable the SDI and USB streaming outputs.

 

Regarding HDMI CAT Extenders: Many of these extenders add HDCP to the signal, even if the source is a camera. Please check with the extender's manufacturer regarding compatibility. SDI converters or HDBaseT extenders are recommended as they do not add or require HDCP.
