  4. Audio Theory, Setup, and Chat
    Ok, so my Denon 1913 runs my system in the basement and has an unsued zone 2. I ran some additional Cat5 lines when I mounted my TV in the living room fo futrure use. I decided to use zone 2 to feed audio to my living room TV & sound bar, so I bought this little adaptor. When I went to...
  5. Home A/V Distribution
    Hey guys, I'll start by saying I am the typical DIY'er with not a whole lot of particular experience with this area. My house has Cat5E ports throughout most rooms and it all runs to the box in my basement. These ports are all cold. I usually keep my modem upstairs in my living room so the...

    Is it possible to have some sort of intercom system over CAT5 cabling and does it need to be separate from the lines used for the internet? Would like to setup an intercom to 4 rooms that are pre-wires with CAT5. Only other option would be some sort of wireless system I'm guessing?

    Does anyone know about a good product to distribute video from a pc, DVD player, security cameras, etc to all the devices in my house. I only have a single Cat6 cable running behind the walls. Is there such a product?

    I'm in the middle of a remodel and I'm planning pre-wire for next week. There's about 5 windows and 4 skylights I'd like to pre-wire for shades. All the low voltage guys have said just run a cat5 to the window and leave it there and that should be ok. But after researching I'm a bit...
  9. HDMI Q&A - The One Connector World
    I have an issue, When I had my house built I had the builder run a hdmi and two cat 6 cables to above the fireplace from where my receiver is. I recently was messing with the tv and broke the hdmi end off. I bought one of those cat5 to hdmi converters and have it working, but only if I plug the...

    I just installed a budget outdoor speaker system and ran a cat5 and 2 speaker wires from the amplifier inside to a junction box outside. I would like to use 1 pair out of the cat5 to switch on/off the amplifier from outside by installing a simple toggle switch inside the waterproof flip open...

    So I finally decided to try a few bluray iso's and they play great locally. However, over the network they seem to suck, and by suck I mean it is impossible to watch with it constantly stuttering. I believe this is due my CAT5 in-house wiring. I can stream all of my compressed h264 files but...

    Hey guys, Bringing this post over from another thread as this section seems to be more relevant: So is it currently preferred to do cat5 to deliver video to different destinations in the house vs coax? I would imagine it would be more consistent, but I'm just a n00b
  13. HDMI Q&A - The One Connector World
    Four years ago I moved into a new place and decided that if I'm going to mount a TV on the wall, I didn't want to see annoying cables, so I dedicated an area in the basement to house all my A/V equipment. So, I hired an electrician to install an outlet where I wanted the TV and we discussed...

    Hi all, I've been researching this as best I can, and I have not been able to determine a definitive answer unfortunately. I am in the process of designing a new house and looking to satisfy my cabling needs as uniformly and as cost effective as possible. This will be in a remote location...

    I am looking for an HDMI over Cat5 extender (Active) that can run about 70' which also supports HDMI CEC control. Tried an Atlona HDMI over Cat5 product today which worked fine but does not support CEC. I have a passive HDMI extender which has been going out a lot lately. However, it did...

     Hello, Short story: I have 2 runs of CAT5 from my bluray player to my projector and am currently using baluns ( http://www.knollsystems.com/prod-ubw-hdmi.htm ) to transit video to the projector. These baluns do not support HDMI 1.4a so my new 3D projector cannot play 3D blurays. I'm...

    I just bought a house that was prewired for a WHA system and I was looking at hooking it up. There is Cat5 from the basement wiring closet to the volume control location in each room, and speaker wire from the volume control to the speaker locations. Since there isn't speaker wire running all...

    Are there any ~6 zone amps that have nice volume knobs (i.e. not screwdriver gain pots) in front but also allow for remote volume adjustment via cat 5 (or any hardwiring) from wall volume controls? Don't care about IR nor for $$ complex whole-house systems. Thanks.
