Thanks enthuzist. Appreciate the detailed response
Using CL2 for in wall use is a must for code and eliminating issues later. ALWAYS use the requested wiring standard. You are taking the time to line it up, so why not do it right the first time. Did you use a cable tested to test each run after you terminated the cables? Another must to eliminate frustration before you button up the plates. Testers are cheap and can be found at your local Lowe's, Home Depot or Radio Shack or the like.
Checked that these are CL2 for in wall use.
Sadly running these 2 cat6 cables was a last minute thing that I hadn't put too much thought into. I had already run a HDMI cable. The cat6+extender solution was meant to be a backup. But I agree. I should have checked these before sealing things up
Seems simple, but I have seen this issue way too often being overlooked. the HDMI OUT plate should be near your TV/Projector.
This I have verified. Made sure that source goes to HDMI in
Another simple but easily overlooked issue I have found. This is why color coded or properly labeled cables will always be best.
Yet another thing I missed. Both cables are of the same color.
Though by connecting a single cable between the extenders and by checking if the power led lights up I am able to at least map the cables
I always use the power for 35' and over runs...yes you can go very long distances but you will need to use Fiber Optic cables to do so. Even though it isn't listed, make sure that it passes HDCP signals...strangely I have seen some that will not pass it nor IR if over a certain distance, but will pass video at longer distances.
I will go and get a couple of 5V DC power sources ASAP
But I wonder if the termination is the problem here.
I can see both the LEDs light up (power and status). Maybe the HDCP handshake is failing because of some wires not being terminated correctly.
Any tips on what else I could do to debug this.
Get a patch cable tester?
