Some one can help in this trouble shooting ?
As mentioned above, there a couple of concerns. After a few months of (flawless) operation, we began noticing that the screens would occasionally go blank. Since we had just switched computers, the first thought was that it was the screen saver on the computer. Adjustments were made, but the next week the same thing happened even sooner. Second thought was that the transmitter was cutting out because of heat - it does run pretty hot, and as someone who makes a living as an EE, I can tell you that heat is the enemy of reliability in electronics. Then we noticed that just moving the transmitter would cause it to work/not work. The transmitter was removed and taken apart (what can I say) and found to have a very loose power connector - just tilting the transmitter caused the connector to wiggle. Upon further examination, a solder joint for the power input on the connector was broken, and appeared as though it had never been properly soldered (quality issue). After repairing the solder on the connector and pointing a small fan at the transmitter, the unit again works flawlessly and runs nice and cool.
It appears from other reviews that there are some heat related failures - units where 1, 2, or 3 of the ports quit working. Bottom line, I would buy again, but with the requirement that there has to be some air flow over the transmitter.
PROS: Good quality picture to 4 TVs
CONS: Transmitter runs pretty hot
PROS: Works like a charm, but only with CAT6. Its signal over CAT5e over a distance of only 35 feet was degraded markedly.
CONS: It does not work well with CAT5e, even at a distance of 35 feet
However after about one year, one of the four ports quit working. Now, just over two years old, a second port has quit, effectively making it useless for my purpose. For the cost, I was hoping it would last longer, and I am weary about purchasing a replacement if they are not built to last - I cannot afford to buy a new one every couple years.
Connected to (2) 70", (1) 32", and (1) 26" HD widescreen TVs. Input is either a laptop or DVD player. Running 100' cat6 cable and 24AWG High SPD HDMI cables. Picture and sound is perfect!
PROS: Easy to set up. PnP. Running the cables was the hardest part of it.
CONS: None that I run into.
PROS: Great picture
Easy set up
CONS: Needed some troubleshooting, but tech support got me to the solution pretty quickly.
PROS: Easy to set up - Plug and Play
Works with existing in-wall CAT6 wiring
Works with cable boxes, DVRs, Home Theater PCs, ANY HDMI signal I was able to throw at it.
CONS: Power must be supplied to the small converter box at each TV, with a wall wort.
PROS: Passes HDMI control commands
Small interface box at the display end, much better than the wireless hdmi solution I was using.
No flicker when turning on and off displays
CONS: No HDMI out (not a huge issue)
Doesn't like small hdmi cables on the receiver end for some reason
PROS: Solid solution for distribution, inexpensive, handles both audio and video.
PROS: Great Product! we are extending HDMI over 100 ft to three Sharp Flat screens and the display quality is great.
I had a customer who needed an AppleTV signal split to 4 different TV's throughout their house. Using my usual brand of balun and splitter, I would have spent about $400 for this setup. As this was not an option for this customer, I opted to give this product a shot. WOW. Ran Cat6 - Plugged Everything In - Worked PERFECTLY! Just as described.
Runs were from 30ft to a little over 100ft. No signal degradation, no flicker/re-handshaking when turning TV's on and off, no EMI from ceiling fans. I'm amazed. I only hooked it up today but when dealing with HDMI extenders, problems usually arise immediately. I'll update this review if anything changes.
-Flawless HDMI Transmission
CONS: -HDMI Ports didn't grip very tightly - HDMI Cables can come out fairly easily
