I didn't think they would do it for the same $100 price but I didn't expect quite that much of an up charge. Thanks for the info.

And I think it is unlikely that you would ever have a need for...

If you select one of the AVR "simulated surround sound" or ("multi-channel stereo" modes, you can get sound from all speakers (more...

Sound control is tough.

High frequency sounds - not too hard - low frequency sounds - darn near impossible without spending a ton of money.

No it's not a semantic difference.

The only thing Ethernet and those TrippLite HDMI Extenders have in common is they both use CATx cable.

The technology used by Ethernet to carry information...

Have you or an associate had an occasion to use this hardware?

If so how did it perform?

Thanks.

I would not be surprised if the JAP approach required a dedicated "network".

Any idea if this so?

Well to keep it simple Ethernet is a way for computers to communicate and it is often done over CATx cable.

TrippLite makes good stuff.

JFYI this is not HDMI over Ethernet - it's HDMI over CATx.

Are you going to be using passive or active receivers?

Well if money is not an issue - sure why not go POE.

But a run of 2 conductor, say, 16 gauge stranded is going to have a a good deal less resistance then the 4 conductors of the CATx cable that...

The only thing I see him mention is video from the cameras.

If he doesn't need Ethernet and he is prepared to run a separate cable for power why go the POE route? No point spending...

Weren't you wanting to use some form of HDMI over Ethernet?

If I'm reading it correctly those POE devices you referenced are assuming that there are 2 free pairs in the Ethernet cable.

Yeah but I doubt the whoever is doing the work for the builder is going to stick to that figure for shielded - more work, more expensive materials - maybe they would but it seems unlikely.

The real concern in a case like this is not heat but voltage loss over the cable run.
