I need to extend an HDMI signal to about 90 feet to reach my main TV (an older Hitachi Plasma). I purchased an HDMI over Coax extender and it works great with my bedroom TV (a newer LCD) but I get no picture and no sound on my older (2006) Hitachi Plasma. I tested it with yet a 3rd new LCD and it worked great... so I have narrowed it down to my plasma. I tried connecting my source directly to the plasma and it works fine... but when I throw the Coax extender into the mix... nothing. Does the old HDMI (2006 and earlier) have disadvantages? Could it be that my plasma is 720P?

Virtually no chance your 2006 Plasma is anything other than 720p. Can you set your source to that resolution and test that?

Do you think that the difference in resolution would cause it to just not work? I will poke around in the menus of my new BD player (Samsung F7500) to see if I can change the output resolution.

I just thought of something... when I plug the BD player directly into the old plasma... it works fine. It is only when I use the extender. The extender, however, works fine with my newer TVs.

Yes, your tv , or your baluns are not sending the proper EDID signal to your blu-ray telling it what it will accept as resolutions, try setting the Blu-ray to 720 before hooking it up to the TV with the blauns
