              Comments about Comprehensive CHE-1 1 Port HDMI Extender Over Single Cat5:

              I run an AV installation and rental company, and we have used many products like this one over the last few years. I have found the CHE-1 to be a very cost effective way to transport HDMI over long cat5e/6 runs. We have had only 1 failure of the units weve installed, and our records show we have installed 234 of them at the time I'm writing this. That unit was easily swapped out with no issues.

              The picture quality is excellent, comparable to 2-wire units costing a lot more. HDMI baluns do not always retain the rich color of the source signal, however it has never been an issue with these units. Excellent color, excellent performance. I find this product to be dependable, fairly priced, and of high quality.

              Specs:
              2 input HDMI ports, with a dip switch to select which you want to use.
              150 feet max run
              We recommend using cat6, if possible, with longer runs.

              Note: Some reviews complain that this unit is not compatible with an ethernet switch, or router. This is true. However, I will make the statement that just because a device uses a Cat5/6 connector (RJ-45) does not mean it is an ethernet device. Many types of technology use the RJ-45 connector and Cat type cables due to their low cost and ease of installation. This is a balun, not a netwrking device. If you want a networkable HDMI device, you need to check out a 100BASE-T compatible video system.

                Comments about Comprehensive CHE-1 1 Port HDMI Extender Over Single Cat5:

                I was so hoping to use it to split the HDMI output from a TiVo to two TVs. The product sounds so promising and the reviews were great, however:
                1. You must have a dedicated Ethernet cable between transmitter and receiver. It will not operate through a switch.
                2. Worked for about one minute sending and receiving good quality audio and video, than for some unknown reason the video continued to be seen but the audio dropped out.
                3. Other than a lit red LED indicating power, there is no indication of Ethernet connectivity.
                To be fair, the cause MAYBE that the transmitter input was fed from one leg of an HDMI splitter and perhaps it's not designed to pass signal through a splitter. Nonetheless, it's too complicated for my expertise so unfortunately I will be returning it for a refund.

                This is an economical and effective way to send an HDMI signal over a long distance. The units are solidly built and worked right out of the box.

                  I supervise a large university's equipment, and have found that the addition of the CHE-1 to our inventory has given us much need flexibility in our HD projection setups, with the use of this product in our State Ballroom we have been able to supply HiDef 1080i resolution to multi projector configurations.

                    You could pay more for an HDMI cable. In fact, 5 years ago, a similar item cost me $600. You can't beat this for the price. Will run perfectly sync'ed HD video hundreds of feet with no loss. Solid metal body will not break even if you stand on one. And best of all, you only need a single run of CAT5, 5e, or 6. Kit comes with everything you need.
