I have a DISHTV receiver connected to my plasma TV sitting in the living room on the first floor.
In my second floor, I have a bonus room in which, I have a EPSON projector with HDMI (1080p) that is connected to a Yamaha receiver. I have a DVD and HTPC also connected to the receiver.
To my DISHTV receiver, I have a sling adapter connected to it and when I have to watch DISHTV on my projecter, I use my HTPC and watch TV on my projector through dishanywhere.com
Although I get 8mbps streaming on dishanywhere.com because it is within my internal network, the quality is not nearly as good as connecting the DISH receiver directly .
I wish to use a HDMI switch like http://www.amazon.com/Sewell-HDMI-Bi-Directional-Switch-Passthrough/dp/B00629NHW6
to route the DVR HDMI signal to either the Plasma TV in my living room or to my YAMAHA receiver in my bonus room upstairs.
- Should I buy a long HDMI cable (> 75 feet , I am guessing)
- Should I buy a HDMI to CAT5e/6 http://www.amazon.com/Generic-HDMI-Extender-Cat5e-Cables/dp/B003LZA95W/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1377018578&sr=1-1&keywords=hdmi+to+cat5
and a long CAT5e or Cat6 cable ?
I have read user reviews on amazon on the HDMI to Cat5e converter and they seem to be mixed. Some users rating it a 5star and some at 1star. So, it is kind of hard to tell if it really works.?
I have also read that some people have trouble getting video on audio over HDMI on long distances.
Could the experts here on the forum recommend an approach.? any help is appreciated
