  • "We received the SE-DVI-4ARS DVI Video Only switch with custom designed RMT-4-RS Remote Controller and had a chance to test it out. Once we corrected the serial cable pin-out, it works like a champ and will do exactly what we need. The front panel works for us without any changes. Thanks for all the hard work."
