    I used this gear to provide a high def TV an HDMI feed in another room without having to purchase another DirecTV receiver. Works great. Only difficult part is routing and hiding the CAT5 cable from room-to-room so cabling was not noticable. On occassion we experienced an outside power failure (only for a second) and the remote TV suddenly showed a strong blue hue/tint so I reset the transmitter and receiver by powering them down and back up again and this easily fixed it. Only other minor issue is that you need a wall power socket handy at both the trasmitter and receiver ends so you can plug-in the AC power adapters. I had to purchase an additional power strip in my situation to provide enough plugs. Also note this model does not integrate Infrared (IR) to remotely change channels on the DirecTV receiver but I alreay had a 5.8GHZ radio-controlled transmitter/receiver pair that I used seperately for changing channels on the DirecTV receiver from the remote end (receiver) of the KanexPro HDMI Extender. If you don't need to change TV channels from the remote end, then this is no big deal but Kanex sells other models that integrate IR controls but for a higher cost (est $230).

    First off it isn't an extender; it's a converter set. The difference is that instead of my device connecting directly to the destination, it's actually connecting to the transmitter box that compresses the signal and sends it to the receiver which then talks to the destination. As such your source won't pick up the destination's EDID. Also the converter requires very specific settings in order to work and the tech inside is far more complicated and finicky than a a true extender would be. The device can work, I've seen it. But I've also gone through FIVE sets of them. They don't like DVI signals even if they're 1080i or 720p. It's iffy on many other computer resolutions that should work fine according to the device specs. If you're looking for something inexpensive I recommend B&H # AVHDMC53M or B&H # AVDVIC5MSET or any number of similar products. They actually extend your true signal rather than converting it and then converting back. If you need to go further you really need to go a category up to something like B&H # KRTP573 B&H # KRTP574

          I have Cat 5e and Coax to each room next to my TV's in each of my rooms. COMCAST is killing me on extra charges so I took one box and ran all my TV's off the Cat 5e. It works grate saving about 15.00 each month will pay for it self with in a year. Thank you KanexPro. Also I believe the picture is much clearer in 1080.

                  The extender over CAT 5 is a necessary product to use for runs of HDMI over 25'. We have purchased a half dozen Kanex HDMI cables to go with their splitters in installations and ALL have failed and proved to be problematic. That's a 100% fail rate. The CAT 5 system works with a slight delay, but connected the HDMI signal first time. This is definitely the way to go when running HDMI signal.

                      We are using the KanexPro extender to go from an equipment room to the television using pre-installed Cat5e cable in our home. Our source is 1080i only.The configuration has a 6' cable from the transmitter, connected to an estimated 30' of cable (through the walls and ceiling), then another 3' of cable from the wall to the receiver, for a total estimated cable length of 40' (13m). This includes two couplers to connect to the existing cable in the wall. None of the cables (or connectors) are shielded, and the connectors are all EZ end style. Even though this configuration goes against the manufacturer's recommendations (do not use couplers, or EZ end connectors; strongly recommend terminated and shielded cable and connectors), it is working fine for us, probably because of the relatively short total cable length and the 1080i signal. We are very happy with the performance. We just hooked it up and it worked.

                      I purchased two sets of these. Could not get them to work. Tried numerous setups with different tv's, different cables, etc, etc. I'm technically minded with electronics so know what I am doing. Emailed B&H bak and forth and wasted time with their suggestions to trouble shoot. Decided to return the item to be told it exceeded 30 days and I must take up my issue with Kanexpro. I would not suggest this product. I'm sure there are more reliable units on the market.

                          I have been trying to find a solution to extend my go pros over a long reach. Right now they are working using the micro hdmi out on the go pro into the reciever Kanexpro extender our of it to a 50 foot cat 5 cable then into the reciever end via cat 5 out of the hdmi output to my ATEM switcher. I was getting some green spakles on occasion in black zones when hooked up to a cheap HD TV but did not get that with a Sony handycam so may have some issues or maybe its the TV. We shall see but picture looks the same as if the camera were connected straight in to the tv via short HDMI so I like them says it goes up to 130 feet max working at 50 for me.

                          I purchased this extender to use with an existing CAT 6 cable run that was approximately 60 ft. The extender did not work with that specific cable run, but it worked with a much longer cable run in an adjacent room. Both cable runs tested fine with a CAT cable tester. I suspect that the extender is sensitive to interference, but it would probably work in most environments. A replacement HDBaseT extender was more expensive, but proved to be much more robust in my setup.

The Kopul is connected to my FIOS, a COMPUTER, my DVD Player and Mini HDMI device. All devices are switched through th Kopul and HDMI out to the this Extender to a Projector via Aprox. a 50ft Cat5e run. This product does its job great so far and connectivity was easy.

                              When they work, these are great. But I have purchased 5 of these, and they all failed over a two year period. Very finicky to power surges. Strongly suggest you try another product and save yourself the hassle.

                                  We use this in our church. We have a 55" TV we use for our Student Ministry worship service and this enables us to have the computer in the back of the room with the TV up front. We are portable as well so we have to setup and takedown every week and using a CAT5 cables makes it a little bit easier.

                                    This helps to extend the HDMI connection connection over ethernet as the name implies. And it works great for me. If you looking for this kind of extension, this is what you need.

                                    I was not able to get this product to work with an ETC element lighting console. I had issues with it working with a Mac Mini as well. Likely could have been the one that we purchased, we did not return it and get another to test it. The idea is great, if it works it would be fantastic for the price.

                                            Running HDMI over a single CAT5e about 75ft to a Sony 60" LED TV. Picture is as clear as it is with the box plugged into the TV directly.

                                            Very economical Rx/Tx set that extends your HDMI reach a further 165 feet. I used the full 165 feet of CAT 6 cable and it works perfectly. But note that you should use solid copper wire; stranded wire does not work well.

                                            Bought 4 of these for video distribution of a digital sign system. I used Cat6 STP cable and these did the trick. I wish the AC adapter cord was longer... that's my only gripe.
