I need a little help to figure out a problem.
New home has a small TV/DVD player mounted underneath counter in the kitchen. Problem is builder put the TV in but did not run a Coax for me to send Cable TV to this TV.
However, there is a CAT-5 cable that terminates very closely to it. Since all my Coax (for Cable TV) and CAT-5 runs are distributed from a wiring closet, I am hoping I can figure out some way to figure to send the Cable TV signal from my wiring closet to this kitchen TV, via the CAT-5.
I started looking for baluns to send Cable TV signal over CAT-5 (with a standard "F" connector (regular coax cable connector) on one side and a RJ-45 or terminal screws on the other side to connect to CAT-5. I have found the following (hope this link works) :http://www.mcminone.com/product.asp?...5Fid=33%2D9630
Is the solution that simple? Connect Cable TV coax in wiring closet to one of these baluns, then on other end of CAT-5 put another balun and connect the TV ?
This balun says it only uses one twisted pair. So is this going to send audio and video of Cable TV?
I don't really understand what the Coax Cable TV combined audio/video signal is like, but it kinda amazes me if I can send that over one twisted pair.
Anyway, please advise if you think this is right kind of balun for me to get, or if you have another idea.
