    can i connect different resolution tv's?? can it support 720, 1080 and 4k??

    do the IR extenders come with?
    A shopper on Feb 20, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: yes they do. another nice feature is that you do not have to supply power to each location. It runs through the cat5.
    What is the benifit of using cat6 over 5?
    A shopper on Jan 17, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: Cat6 is a higher quality cable the Cat5 and in this cause allows you to go further distances and not lose video quality if needed. I used cat5 in my install with this equipment and was fine at 70ft. Also watch for cable kinks or knots. Those will cause video lose.
    Can I run the "HDMI out" of a cable box to the input of the extender and then split the HDMI output to an array of TVs?
    A shopper on May 16, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: Yes you can. The extensions are via Cat6 or Cat5 cables, with standard termination either 568A or 568B. These connect to the receivers that come with the extender kit. These receivers have the hdmi out that will connect to your TVs that are distributed.
    Can I use an HDMI splitter to split the signal from a single computer and connect to two Blackbird 4K HDMI 1x8 Splitter Extenders to connect up to 14 monitors? Is this possible or would I need to have a second computer? Thanks in advanced!

    Monoprice Blackbird 4K Mini 1x4 HDMI Splitter
    Monoprice Blackbird 4K Mini 1x4 HDMI Splitter
    BEST ANSWER: As long as your resolutions are supported by the splitter and extenders you should be fine. I have used this to split a signal off of my ATEM switcher and send them to numerous outputs, sometimes using the single version of the Blackbird extenders.
    Can I use this to split the signal(From the PC to the splitter) then to a PC monitor(Using HMDI Output) and output to 5 other TV's (Using 5 Cat5e/6 outputs)? I need to be able to run media software on the PC monitor and have my output go to the 5 other TV's independently.
    A shopper on Jul 20, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Hello shopper: I have two of the previous version HDMI splitters 1x8 (8160) and 1x4 (8159), but operating principles are the same. I think you are describing a very common situation: It sounds like you need a dual display setup. (Google "setting up dual displays on your computer".) This permits your primary display to control the presentation software and the second display to show the output from the presentation software. (It's common for presentation software to allow it's output to be sent to a second display.) By sending this second display output to the HDMI splitter input, your presentation software output is split 8 ways. So, with your primary display giving you presentation software control, and using one of the splitter outputs to feed another monitor right next to it, you can see exactly what you are sending to the other 7 monitors. I hope I have interpreted your question correctly...
    Can I run 50' of high grade HDMI cable from the source to the input of the extender?

    Works as advertised
    Solid product, better yet, it is slimmer than its predecessor and capable of more.
