    Does this transmit audio too?
    Larry W on Aug 29, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Yes, it will have audio with it.

    But, if you are going direct to a TV, you might have the same problem as me. My TV (older model) couldn't play the audio format that I was sending. So, I had to buy an "Audio Extractor" to be able to send 2 channel audio over an optical cable (with an HDMI pass through).

    I used 2 of these and they work great.
    Does this allow for 2 displays, 1 from HDMI and 1 from the CAT6 to receiver at the same time? For example can I connect it to blu-ray and watch in living room & basement?

    BEST ANSWER: yes, i'm an installer i do it all the time
    Does this transfer sound and video?
    Dave H on May 17, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: I use it for video only for an 8 channel surveillance dvr which has worked out well so far. As recording audio is prohibited in my state, I can't offer any insight on that. That said, it has done everything as advertised.
    The unit says CAT5e works. I am running a PC HDMI out to a new ceiling-mounted HD projector -- NO AUDIO NEEDED. There is already CAT5 installed between the two from a previous setup using VGA baluns on either end of the CAT5. Will CAT5 be sufficient for video only?
    A shopper on Jan 9, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: We installed it as a feed to a security monitor behind the bar (no audio needed). We used Cat5e and it's flawless. I don't think there's much difference between the two cables, and any other solution will have the same requirements. So this is a very cost effective way to give it a shot
    Can you run this with cat5?
    Pete V on Aug 30, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: it works with cat5 but cat6 is recommended
    Can the cat 6 cable run thru a switch?
    Ron G on May 13, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: Nope. Video runs different than network traffic. It would get jumbled and lost.
    Does this include the IR receiver and transmitter unit?
    New User U on Dec 8, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Yes, it does
    Does this unit support Dual Band IR?

    Great for adding long distance 2nd monitor.
    Super simple to set up and worked immediately. The loop out function went to a security monitor in the office and the transmission fees went to the bar monitor. Works flawlessly.

    Blackbird HDMI Extender, 50m, PoC, IR Kit, Loop Out
    HDMI Extender works as stated. Didn't need loop out feature, but handy if you do. The PoC feature is nice you don't need another wall wart at the receiver end. In my application I'm connecting the transmitter end off of a 8 way HDMI splitter and running about 80 ft of CAT 6 STP from a basement through conduit out to my workshop into the receiver and from the receiver to the TV with a 3 ft HDMI cable. When doing the initial hookup the extender did not work correctly, but luckily I was only using 6 outputs on my 8 way splitter and used the end output (#8) and everything worked. Not sure if it's a possible noise issue being close to the last functioning output of the splitter.

    Works as required.
    Connected over pre-made 50ft. Cat5e cable, functioned as advertised. Would recommend.
