HDMI Cat5e/6 1×2 Splitter IR + EDID

New Model


This HDMI splitter Extender over Single Cat5e/6 with IR device control extends high definition video and audio signals up to 50m and its Foxtel friendly!, can be used to extend to 2 TV’s or one!. Features EDID management which allows and encourages source and display “handshake” for seamless integration. With cost effective Cat5e/6 cable, high definition sources with HDMI outputs can be connected to high definition displays with HDMI inputs over long distances.

Dolby True HD audio  is  supported, in addition it is also equipped with pass-through which allows for device source control. There are two units a TX transmitting unit and RX receiving unit. The transmitting unit is used to capture the HDMI input with IR signals and carries the signals via cost effective Cat5e/6 cable from TX sender to RX receiver and HDMI to distant TV and via one HDMI cable to nearest TV and one HDMI cable to nearest TV (see diagram).

The receiving unit is responsible for equalizing the transmitted HDMI signal and reconstructing IR control signals. This model can accept the older Cat5e cable as well as better Cat6+ and has EDID adjustment. See item specifications and reviews below.

    Terrific little unit.

    I used this to split HDMI output from a Foxtel IQ2; the local HDMI going to my AV receiver, and the CAT 6 cable then going to a TV in another room.

    It would have worked instantly the first time if I had not been an idiot and partly stripped the RJ-45 jack on the cable forcing it through a jagged hole in an aluminium door.

    Two things to watch out for:

    1) The positioning of the IR blaster (transmitter) is not quite intuitive. It comes with an adhesive pad on its bottom to stick ‘over’ the sending unit’s IR receptor. I have not seen it documented, but I assumed that the little blaster unit would have to pass the IR signal through its base (where the sticky adhesive is), otherwise it would only be facing outwards, and thus not transmit the return signals. However, it does seem to work OK, so my concerns were groundless. (Just would be nice to know how the IR signal moves.)

    2. The IR blaster and receiver each use what looks like a 3.5 mm TS-type mono audio jack plug. And these plug into the HDMI splitter transmitter and receiver units respectively. They must be pressed into their sockets *quite firmly*. If you just insert them until they stop, and assume they are in place, they may not be. On my unit (as well as on a second unit which I had purchased for my mother), there was a ‘second’ click/notch if you pressed the plug in a bit harder. If it does not get to this second level, you may spend *quite a lot of time* (including a call to the helpful Keith) trying to work out why your IR is not working despite seemingly being set up correctly. This is *not* a fault. But it is also not obvious, and if you are something of a neophyte to electronics, and this sort of thing, like my mother, it may be a trap for the unwary.

    These were fairly minor matters, however, and certainly do not reflect the excellent quality of the units.

    Picture = perfect.
    IR response = perfect.

    Keith’s customer service, both pre-sale and post-sale was fantastic.
