our new puppy found my Owl Link fiber optic cable runs to 3 rooms: I had installed the fiber optic runs myself several years ago to distribute HD

the Owlink gear is old and not the latest version of HDMI: so I want to upgrade anyway

problem is there are no cable runs available: best I can think of is to run CAT 6 on outside of house: it is a 100 ft run max: was thinking of an HDbase T HDMI balun...or Just Add Power? or I could run RG6

I need recommendations of what to use that is the latest HDMI spec

any suggestions would be appreciated...

please take the high road in every post:do not respond to or quote a problematic post: report it

IMHO HDBaseT is your best bet for longer runs.
