    HDMI® Extender Using Cat5e or CAT6 Cable - Extend Upto 98ft

    Use this simple and effective HDMI® extender to send High Speed (1080p) HDMI® signals up to 30 meters (98 feet) over Cat5e/6 cable!

    Most extenders are small boxes, which must be mounted and which require additional cables to use. While they can usually handle longer distances, if you don't need to take the signal more than 30 meters, this simple pair of extender adapters is the right solution.

    Each adapter plugs into your HDMI ports, with the sender in the source device and the receiver at the display. Then just run a pair of Cat5e/Cat6 cables between the adapters and you're in business! You won't need to provide external power - it gets the power it needs from the HDMI source device.

    The adapters support up to 1080p resolutions and digital audio, including DTS® Digital, DTS-HD Master Audio™, and Dolby TrueHD™. They support up to 8-bits per channel (24-bit total) Deep Color and HDCP pass-through.

    Note: The packaging for this extender is improperly printed and erroneously identifies this device as a 1x2 Splitter. This is in fact an HDMI extender over Cat5e/6 cable and not a splitter device. Updated packaging is on order and this will be corrected as soon as possible. We apologize for any inconvenience or confusion this may cause.

    Have yet to gain functionality

    • Kyle,

    Pros: Will adjust later

    Cons: Will adjust later

    Giving this product a 3 star review but will adjust if I can get support from Monoprice. I connected these with two CAT5E cables following the "B" standard as stated in the instruction manual. I also have to use an HDMI to DVI adapter to plug in a computer monitor. Once plugged in I can hear the computer make that windows noise indicating something was plugged in but the monitor just says "Video Mode Unsupported". Any ideas Monoprice?

    Hello Kyle,

    Thank you for your review and sorry to hear of the issues you have experienced with PID 8121. I would recommend testing it out with a shorter run. If I may ask, do you have the sender plugged into the computer and the receiver end plugged into the display?

    Also be sure the ethernet cables are not crossing from the sender to the receiver (DDC to DDC and TMDS to TMDS). When using with a computer sometimes you want to be sure that the graphics card drivers are fully up to date.

    Another thing you can check is testing it with a different device like a dvd player or cable box to see if it may possibly be a compatibility issue with the computer. I hope this helps!

    Does not work for me.

    • Ron,

    Pros: None

    Cons: Doesn't work with either 50 ft UTP or STP cat5e cables (from Monoprice).

    I connected both of these direct from the source(Directv box) to the TV using both 50 ft UTP cat5e at first (didn't work) and then tried STP cat5e. I also tried the power cycle from the tv back to the source. Still didn't work.

    Will be RMA'ing the product.

    Best solution I could find anywhere near price point

    • Ryan,

    Pros: Works as advertised
    Compact
    Inexpensive

    Cons: 1 adapter appeared to have come DOA

    I ordered two of these several months ago with the intention of (along with some additional products) moving my computer and my wife's computer out of our office because it is a small office and heat from our computers makes the room uncomfortable. Because I delayed the move, I did not immediately test the products I received. 1 of the two did not work, so I had to order a third (which also works fine). That said, any comparable products were so much more expensive that the additional cost of a third set of adapters still kept this as a budget solution to remote TV/Monitor placement. When I move to migrate my children's computers out of the office as well, I will use this product again without hesitation.

    Works excellent ... and with CAT6 cable!

    Pros: Affordable cost, no need for expensive HDMI cables, ease of installation.

    Cons: None

    This product is easy to install. Excellent quality video transmission at 1080P to second and third monitors using a Monoprice, powered splitter. We used leftover lengths of CAT6 cable rather than buying new CAT5e cable as suggested in a separate review. We saved a lot of money without having to buy new cable.

    ONLY USE CAT5 WITH THIS PRODUCT - NO CAT6

    • Anonymous,

    Pros: This is a great product and is a reliable solution for HDMI cables of any length of up to 100 feet. Since it is a pigtail design which includes HDMI connectors there are no additional HDMI cables required and it is a superb low cost solution for making variable length HDMI cables. We use them primarily to run the output of A/V receivers to TV HDMI inputs, when the TV and equipment are not in the same proximity. Just keep this and bulk CAT5 cable and connectors in stock and you are all set (provided you know how to terminate the cat5 connectors, or purchase pre-made cat5 cables of the desired length.

    Cons: In the scenario listed above: using the 8121 out of an A/V receiver and into a TV, you WILL experience intermittent video loss IF YOU USE CAT6. (we have exclusively tested this product with Monoprice bulk cat5 & ca6 wire and connectors)

    If you find yourself in this situation and you cannot change the cat6 cable to cat5, the cure is to remove the 8121 and replace it with the 6532 and two short HDMI cables. Much more expensive solution, but it will work.

    Overall, this is agreat product that does what it says, solves several problems, and is reliable... IF IT IS USED ONLY WITH CAT5 CABLE.
