Any extender should work fine since it would be independent of the matrix switch. There is another model that integrates 2 wire CAT5e/6 transmitters in the switcher.

There is also a brand new model out a lower price of $3000 MSRP:

Skip the 8x8... for the price of one, you can buy 1 blu ray for each zone. And 1 WD TV Live (or similar) for each zone. I was once considering one, but when weighing the practical uses of it versus the costs, the cons far outweighed the cons.

BTW, 3D TV is dead.

Where in the thread did the OP list his needs or even mention a BD player as a source? Supposing that was one of his desired sources, are you suggesting that if he wishes to move from room to room while watching a movie, he stop the disc, take it to the next room, skip to where he left off, then continue watching? That's bad enough--what if he was in the middle of watching streaming content?.

Zektor, Atlona, Intelix, SnapAV, and Leaf come to mind as far as 8x8 matrices. Look for HDBaseT models.
