as far as i know certified cat5 only uses two of the pairs in the cat5 cable itself


so my question is for a HDMI over cat5 extender could I use the one cat5 cable and split it to two RJ45 connectors ?

No, definitely not.


Actually, what you mean is that 10/100 only uses two pairs. Gigabit ethernet uses all 4 pairs.


However HDMI media adapters are a completely different animal, the pairs they use depend on the product but AFAIK they use basically all the pairs I believe.


However, there are HDMI media adapters that only use one Cat, so you might want to try those, I think there's a Calrad HDMI balun for e.g. if I remember correctly that only uses one cat.

Laird Telemedia units use one Cat cable for HDMI as well.
