Just out of curiosity, is there any advantage in using CAT 5 / 6 cables for HDMI instead of the standard HDMI cables?Friends
Has anybody done an HDMI connection over CAT 5/6 cable. I just need to know few details like, which kit was used and where could it be available.....
As reddymail said, cat5 is damm cheap as compared to HDMI for a particular distance, plus HDMI looses signal after 4,5 meters I suppose, thats where CAT5 comes in to play. Extenders are expensive, that is what I want to know if the over cost of running cat5 in my House comes lesser than other alternatives.....Just out of curiosity, is there any advantage in using CAT 5 / 6 cables for HDMI instead of the standard HDMI cables?
Yea yea we know now you have a company.... ..... Anyway where is the site, or any link where I can check the product you are offering for HDMI over CAT5/6Our company has a solution for HDMI over Cat 5 solutions and as it has already been discussed in this thread that it helps in reducing the cost of the cable where we have to run it for a long length.
Yes that is fairly possible, I knew this for quite a while but, never ventured in to this in detail.........There are products like Trippl Lite, Atlona that have the provision for the same. By extenders I mean adapters that convert the signals. usually we have a complete small kit that has these extenders/boosters at each end of the path, with an HDMI plug. The ends are connectec with cat5/6 cable. You just need to plug in the source (AVR) and destination (HDTV) and thats it.I had no clue that this was possible. Some links on these products would be appreciated. By extenders, do you mean repeaters?
Also, have a question about Cat5/6 cables? Can these be run outdoors? Do we need to take any precaution - conduit, watertight etc? I have such a requirement, hence the question.
Thanks in advance!!
