HDbaseT

Years ago I worked in Magnolia. We used HDbaseT to do home theater projector set ups.

I just built a room onto my house just for a HT. Ran my wires but they are hung in the wall in some way shape or form... (Silly mistake).

I ran a 30 foot HDMI and a 30 foot cat5 cable. I am 3 inches to short than I need to be for my UHD60 and the screen is set really cant bring it up any higher. This is all very aggravating. I have tried female to female HDMI couplers but they wont pass a 4k signal. I am guessing there is a bandwidth drop off or something.... Audio tries to come through but drops out every few seconds. Display just says searching....

So before putting holes in my drywall what does anyone know about HDbaseT or devices similar. When I was in the audio video game we just had 1080p not 4k. Any help would be appreciated.

Best,

Best,
Yep. You'd be best to post this in the HDMI Forum. That being said, for 4k HDR the recommendation is to use a hybrid fiber cable (Ruipro4k), source to sink. No extenders, adapters, wall plates, etc. HDBT can work but it works best with solid core CAT-6 (non-CCA and not CAT-6 ethernet patch cable). However, there will still be some compression even with the new Valens chipsets, once they are released for HDBT.

I never trust an atom, they make up everything.
