There is a Runco TV in the home I just bought. The Runco only accepts DVI (or component video). All wiring is in an upstairs closet, and there is only cat5 connections behind the Runco. I have a new Panasonic Blur-Ray player (DMP-BDT210P) with HDMI out. My thought/hope was to convert the HDMI signal to DVI (through a simple adapter), then transmit the DVI signal through an Atlona DVI over ethernet Extender to the Runco. While I can transmit a computer signal, I cannot get any signal transmitted from the bluray player. Does this have anything to do with copyright protection in the hardware that prohibits the HD signal out of the bluray player to be transferred via cat5e to the Runco? Or could it be something else? Thanks!
