HDMI Super Slim 2x4 True Matrix IR Compatible
Really, REALLY true matrix?
Can I switch input 1 to any combination of the 4 outputs, such as 1,2, and 4 and similarly could I then switch input 2 to output 3, etc.? I have found that some companies advertise matrix switchers that are not true matrix switchers. Also, does the switching have to be done via the remote?
Yes, you are reading this correctly, this is a true 2 x 4 matrix; you can have a different input assigned to different outputs at the same time. The matrix can be controlled by either the remote or the buttons on the face.

Can the HDMI Super Slim 2x4 True Matrix be cascaded?
Switchers can be configured with much imagination. The trick is to what degree. In broadcast - video is in the original uncompressed format. With this unit - if you don't go to crazy, you shouldn't suffer signal degradation. Too many splits and the signal will become weak.

Does it come with all the IR extender hardware?
The title says "with IR Extender" but the pictures do no show any extender hardware and the description indicates it may only be a capability, possibly requiring part 180-596 or something else. (180-596 says it is for the 4x2 not the 2x4 but I'm guessing it would work for both). Again, please tell me if the IR extender hardware come with part 180-630.
No this product does not come with the IR extender hardware. It is only IR extender compatible. I'm not sure how well this works either, I have not tried it.

How many RX cables can be used at one time?
Are there plugs for more than one RX cable to be plugged into the matrix switch? If more than one, are extra RX cables available separately?And/or if only one, can the unit be control by the CEC IR function of an HDMI cable at one of the for output fed HDTVs? Would this allow 2 ways to remotely control the unit? Can I buy additional remotes? Or do many learning remotes work by learning the remote's coded outputs?I don't have the device yet. I just ordered it.
I appologize, I'm not w video expert. Call PE Tech and they will be glad to assist you.
