    1x8 HDMI® Amplifier Splitter over CAT5e/CAT6 Complete Solution Kit - Extend Upto 164ft

    Are you running a trade show and need an easy way to setup multiple HD displays showcasing your product? Do you have a sports bar or recreation center with HDTVs set up everywhere for your customers to watch the big game? Or do you just want to have a TV in every room of your house, so you can do your household chores without missing a moment of your favorite TV show? Enter the Monoprice 1x8 HDMI® Amplifier Splitter!

    This is the perfect solution for when you need to distribute a video signal to multiple displays. It takes a single HDMI input and splits it into eight Ethernet signals, which are then transmitted over a single Cat5e/6 cable each for to a distance of up to 50 meters (164 feet). The receiver unit at the end then converts the signal back to HDMI for use by the display.

    This kit comes with everything you need, except the actual cables themselves. You get the 1x8 Amplifier Splitter, eight Receiver units, and nine AC adapters, one for the amplifier and the other eight for the receivers. You also get mounting brackets and screws for each receiver, so you can fix them to a wall or other surface.

    • Extends High Speed 1080p HDMI signals up to 50 meters (164 feet)
    • Uses just a single Cat5e/6 cable for each display

    Get a BIGGER Power Supply!!

    • Vigilant Technology,

    Pros: Works great with CAT-6 (have not tried with CAT-5e). I currently only use 2-3 TVs but needed the option to add more down the road. This unit allows me to use one cable box and feed all the TVs without an additional monthly cost from the cable provider.

    Cons: The power supply is insufficient. Rack mount?

    My first one died after about a year of light use. The replacement lasted about 2 years. Just the other week, port 1 (most used) pretty much stopped working. Audio came through but video was filled with static and would cut out. After reading some previous reviews I noticed a mention of the power supply. I ordered a recommended 5v 6A power supply with a 5.5mmx2.5mm plug (center +) and it solved the problem! I just have to hope no damage was done using the power supply that came with the unit.

    Hopefully Monoprice reads this and makes the changes with this product to prevent future issues.

    Great Unit - Needs a More Robust Power Supply

    Pros: Great splitter - no issues with sync - never needs reset.
    TVs on and off plug and unplug HDMI syncs back up. No HDCP issues in my setup.
    My installation works well with 8597 UTP CAT6.
    Compatible with all my HDTVs: 2006 Samsung, 2013 Samsung, 2008 Visio.
    Allows me to feed HDTV signal from centrally located DVR to multiple TVs. I use multiple UHF remotes to control the DVR.

    Cons: If Monoprice shipped a more robust power supply with this splitter, their customers would be happier. Reviews indicate issues can crop up with some units (including mine) after a year or two of service. Hopefully, swapping out the power supply can fix most, if not all, of these issues.
    It would be great if the main unit fed power to the 8 HDMI receivers through the CAT6 requiring power adapters for all 8 receivers is a pain, but not a deal-killer.
    As others have mentioned, including some main unit mounting brackets would be a real plus.

    I agree with JC if you begin having issues, try replacing the main unit's 5V, 4A adapter, first.
    I've had my 8160 splitter for 2-3 years. Then, ports 2, 6 & 8 stopped working recently. I limped along by moving important TVs to working ports, but thought I would eventually have to replace the splitter. By reading these reviews, I began to wonder if the power supply could be the culprit. I purchased a 5V, 6A adapter online with 5.5mm x 2.5mm coaxial plug (center positive). With new adapter, all ports on the splitter now work. To be certain, I tried the old adapter again, and same ports fail. PS: I found my replacement adapter online "5V, 363511". It brought my unit back to 100%.
    Since they are not provided, I made some sheetmetal brackets to mount the receiver to my HT & network distribution board (plywood) mounted on the basement wall.
    I purchased a bunch of items from Monoprice for my HT updates during my home remodel. Everything worked great. One minor damage issue, but Monoprice took care of it. Good vendor.

    Great Value

    • Mr. Hookup,

    Pros: Excellent deal for the money. It performs well.

    Cons: Replacement parts not available

    You can't beat this system for the money. I've installed several of these systems and they have all worked well. It seems to good to be true. My biggest worry is that they would discontinue it, and I'd have to pay thousands to replace it with something else that would cost thousands, if it every failed. I wish it could be serviced and I wish Monoprice had replacement parts.

    One added note- I noticed that there are mounting holes on the main chassis for rack-mount brackets, but there are not brackets. I'd gladly pay a few bucks more if the brackets were included. As it's presently sold, I either have to add a shelf to accommodate it in the rack, or build the brackets myself.

    Try this first if you have a failure

    Pros: Worked fine for 2 years.

    Cons: Cannot replace without buying whole new kit.

    This is a great box when working. If you have a failure like many of us have. Try replacing the 5v 4A power adapter first.
    After mine failed, exhibiting switching between picture and no signal and then no signal at all, I tried to replace just the splitter but Monoprice will only sell the whole new kit with another 8 receivers and power supplies. I use this in my business and needed it back up working ASAP, so I went the whole new kit route. On receiving I pulled just the new power adapter out first and hooked it to the old splitter. Immediately it all worked fine. Not sure if Mono sells a 5V 4A Power adapter for this box but a lot cheaper than a whole kit. Guess I now have a spare 1x8 splitter and 8 spare receivers. Try the power adapter first.
