Wow, you sure sound frustrated!

My first recommendation is to not even try crimping plugs on Cat-5/6 cable -- typical RJ45 connectors are pretty easy to do wrong. Another problem is that many...

It would help if you let us know the Kalatel model of your DVR. I looked a few up, and some the 16 channel units have loop through video inputs, so you could easilly loop the camera to the Axis...

Sorry, I should have read your post more thoroughly. Your setup won't work as described. You need 2 splitters -- they only work in pairs, one at each end of a run. One end with 2 connections to a...

These splitters will work with Cat 5, 5e, 6, whatever, but you will be limited to 100BaseT Ethernet (100 Mb/s). They take advantage of the fact that 10Base-T and 100Base-T Ethernet only use 2 of the...

Since you have no composite input, using a cheap RF demod would be difficult.

I struggled with this, too. You need an MCE certified remote/IR blaster. You'll get a remote, IR receiver, and two separate blasters (for controlling 2 STBs). You can get it from Hauppauge for $30:...

I would recommend the Leviton inserts, sticking with the Decora plates. You'll have no problem fitting 6 Leviton modules in the Decora insert.

For home use, I think Decora is the way to go; it...

If I were you, I would make it right and fix one end or the other so everything is wired with one standard.

While it may work with auto-sensing Ethernet hardware, it will cause big headaches if...

You should look in to the Blonder Tongue DHDP-V, or Drake DDC864 + DUC864. Both do what you're looking for by downconverting an ATSC channel to 44 MHz IF, then upconverting the IF to a broadcast or...

A composite video DA (distribution amplifier) should work fine, like the sb-3701rca on the same site (sorry, I couldn't post a link!)
