Setting up the Detective is both quick and easy. The initial step requires programming the Detective to store the display’s EDID information into its internal memory. Two options are provided: automatic and manual. In the automatic mode, the option I used, you power the Detective with the supplied power supply and connect it to your display. The DIP switches all need to be in the off position, and the write-protect switch needs to be in the E, write enabled, position. The EDID recording sequence is then initiated by holding down the program button. Once the LED starts to rapidly flash green, the program button can be released. A transition of the LED to a solid green color indicates a successful programming sequence. Once the programming is complete, the external power supply can be disconnected and put away. A red LED indicates an unsuccessful programming. If this happens, check the position of the DIP switches and the position of the write protect switch; then power-cycle and re-try. If programming is still unsuccessful or if you need to force a specific resolution and audio combination, use the manual option.
