However it forced me to really think about what I was trying to accomplish. I believe SDvOE will replace HDMI and cat6a is reputed to be better for SDvOE. If I had cat6 already installed I would not rip it out and I would wait and see how the technology evolves.
Thanks for the heads up on SDvOE. Never heard of it before. When I built my addition and patio 8 years ago, I neglected to run a HDMI cable to the patio. I would use Baluns to run the TV out there using my Dish Hopper. I have 2 RF and a Cat5e connections on the patio. My Dish Hopper had component outs and I able was use it with Baluns using the Cat5e. But now I have Comcast X something 4k. The Comcast box does not have component outs.
Looking forward to see how this new tech progresses.
