    HDMI® Over CAT5E / CAT6 Extender Wall Plate (Pair) w/ Built-In Backward IR Channel - Single Port (1P) - White

    The Monoprice HDMI® Extender can extend an HDMI video signal up to 30 meters over two Cat6 ethernet cables run through the walls. This unit supports all NTSC and PAL video resolutions up to 1080p with 24/36 bit Deep Color. It supports LPCM, Dolby®-AC3, DTS® 7.1, and DSD audio signals. This is a passive device, so no power adapter is needed! The wall plates also feature a built-in IR extender system, with all the necessary hardware, so you can control your equipment from the other room using your regular remote control.

    Features:

    • Supports High Speed HDMI signals (1080p)
    • Supports Deep Color
    • Passive, no power adapter required
    • Includes IR receiver and transmitter to extend remote control signal
    • Supports single-band IR signals between 39-45 kHz
    • IR cables supplied with unit are 4'10" long
    • FCC and CE Approved

    Note: Monoprice strongly recommends the use of minimum 24 AWG HDMI cables when connecting a device, such as this extender, between the source and destination devices to ensure minimal signal loss and maximum High Speed signal reliability.

    Note: Although this extender will work with Cat5e UTP cables, Monoprice STRONGLY recommends using Cat6 STP cabling for anything longer than minimal distances. Cat6 STP cabling will provide the highest reliability and signal integrity to ensure that your installation is trouble-free under all conditions for years to come.

    Requireslow-voltage mounting brackets (one per wall plate). These are not included!

    Using this product with Dual Band remotes
    I have a fairly complex A/V setup. I'm using these wall plates for 6 different locations, and I'm using them with dual-band IR remotes. I ran into many of the things that people are complaining about in the reviews, and have "work-arounds" to them. Here's what you need to know:



    1.) Some HDMI devices do not put out enough voltage for these to work. When you run into this situation, you can easily fix this by injecting one of these in between the source (DirecTV box, Blu-Ray player, XBOX, etc) and the TX HDMI wall plate: http://www.monoprice.com/Product?ab3=b&utm_expid=58369800-11.R-enhtUGRrSdHz5vzpVS2g.1&c_id=101&cp_id=10113&cs_id=1011306&p_id=8154&seq=1&format=2&utm_referrer=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.monoprice.com%2FCategory%3Fc_id%3D101%26cp_id%3D10113%26cs_id%3D1011306. This will amplify the signal, and then the HDMI extender will function. Connection is: Source Amplifier 8008 TX HDMI wall plate 8008 RX HDMI wall plate TV



    2.) If you have devices with dual-band IR remotes, order one of these: http://www.monoprice.com/Category?c_id=102&cp_id=10218&cs_id=1021813.

    Throw away the receiver and emitter that came with the HDMI Wall Plates (8008), and use the receiver and emitters from the 9895 Dual Band IR Repeater instead. Plug the receiver into the 8008 RX HDMI wall plate. Plug a stereo 3.5mm Male to Male cable into the IR port on the 8008 TX HDMI wall plate end, and plug the other end of this cable into the "IR Receiver" port on the 9895 Dual Band IR Repeater. The cable that I'm referencing can be found here: http://www.monoprice.com/Product?ab3=b&utm_expid=58369800-11.R-enhtUGRrSdHz5vzpVS2g.1&c_id=102&cp_id=10218&cs_id=1021802&p_id=644&seq=1&format=2. Plug in the power cable for the 9895 Dual Band IR Repeater. This will make sure that there's 5V going to the HDMI wall plate as well - you'll see the LED light up. Then plug your 9895 Dual Band IR Repeater emitters into the emitter ports, and you now have dual-band IR.



    3.) I had an issue with the screen flickering when using a Blu-Ray player (every other device was working fine) and this wall plate. The flickering would go away if I connected the Blu-Ray player directly to the TV with an HDMI cable. I fixed this by changing the YCBCR setting in the Blu-Ray player's settings menu from 4.4.4 to 4.2.2. Changing this stopped the flickering, and allowed me to use the Blu-Ray player. Only had to return 3 Blu-ray players before I discovered this. :-)



    Hope this helps.

    PROS: Works well when you don't know the length of HDMI cables that you need. Also, pulling CAT6 can somewhat allow you to "future proof" yourself, as there's at least a chance that there could be a new balun for newer technology.

    CONS: Dual Band IR support (I have a fix for this)

    Won't transmit low-power HDMI signals (I also have a fix for this)



    To make this product usable out of the box, there's two things that monoprice needs to add (I have my own solutions to these):

    1.) External Power

    2.) Dual band IR support

    HDMI extender over Ethernet
    This would be a great product if the IR channel support the remotes used by most cable and satellite boxes. Since it does not, I had to find a similarly priced dual channel product on eBay.

    PROS: HDMI extender portion works great

    CONS: IR remote is only single channel so doesn't work with many cable or satellite boxes.

    5/5
    Wanted to get rid of the additional cable box, but needed to be able to change channels on the second TV. These units allow that. I read in another review that I would need two CAT5/6 cables to connect the two wall units, so I ordered them at the same time, different colors since I had to feed through the walls between the two rooms and make sure they were plugged into the correct socket. Installation was flawless and easy knowing this piece of information. I will use this method in another similar installation I have. Monoprice has come through for me again.

    PROS: Does exactly what I expected it to do. Easy! Works great and saves me the monthly cost for an additional cable box.

    CONS: Unit does not fit into plastic, "old work" electrical boxes but can be made to go into the box with little effort.

    System works fine on a 70-foot run, beautiful picture. Using two 20-foot 3.5mm stereo audio extension cables with the IR extenders as their meter-long cords don't extend them far enough out from the wall plates behind the TV's. My HD Tivo loves it. When they say they don't fit standard wall boxes they mean it. They don't fit the low voltage boxes at Lowes either. Determine the distance from the wall plate location to the front of your device for the IR extender and get the appropriate stereo audio extension cables and low voltage wall plates here.

    Great product....BUT
    I was really hoping for a transmitter eye that was smaller and would adhere directly to the IR eye on the device. I was hoping to have a multiport IR transmitter plugged into the wall outlet so it could adhere to the front of each device but this was not the case.

    PROS: Easy setup.
    Works as advertised.

    CONS: IR on transmitter end coming from the cable box seems unable to accept a different transmitter eye.

    PROS: Extending the monitor works great.

    CONS: Not compatible with ALL electronics. I am using a SPECO camera system and the IR functionality did not work.. The spec for this product says "Supports single-band IR signals between 39-45 kHz" which apparently is not compatible with SPECO

    Works on most AV equipment
    Works as advertised, streaming 1080 to my bedroom from the living room HTPC. I was warned ahead of time by Monoprice support that this may have problems with Cisco devices. I have a Cisco DVR but bought it anyway as this seemed to be my best bang for the buck. As I was warned it doesn't work on a Cisco 8640HDC. My run is 50' Cat6. IR signal is verified as working with the Monoprice 2x4 HDMI Matrix, Windows Media Center remote, Samsung BR DVD players and TV's. The IR also has a nice range, and good coverage.

    PROS: Easy to Install.
    Works as advertised.
    Cat6 is easier to run than HDMI.

    CONS: Doesn't work on some devices, check with Monoprice support.
    Red LED is a little bright (easily fixable)
    July 3, 2011
    It was an experience. Works with At&T UVerse.
    This extender seemed like a perfect solution for hanging my new LED cleanly and allow for remote location of the UVerse set-top box.

    I debated purchasing because I couldn't get clarification from Monoprice or UVerse that the IR function would work, because if it didn't this extender would be basically useless for my intended use. I bought anyway figuring I'd test it before doing the actual install and RMA if didn't work.

    The item arrive quickly and well-packaged. Inside the box was the two wall plates with trim rings, two IR sensors with mounting tape, and useless instructions. I say useless because all it tells you is a sequence to hook up the wires, which is pretty self-explanatory. It leaves out, what I discovered to be most important detail- the recommended IR sensor location.

    The first extender I received revealed a problem other reviewers experienced- clunky operation of the IR only properly sensing and forwarding maybe only one of 20 remote clicks. The extender was connected with 30' of TSP cat6 cables(as recommended), the IR input sensor was located directly underneath the TV, and the sender IR sensor placed directly in front of the STB's remote control IR sensor. When testing, I pointed the STB's remote directly at the IR input sensor from 10' away. In discussion with Monoprice's tech support they acknowledged my set-up was correct, that the extender was faulty, and a RMA was issued and replacement shipped.

    The 2nd extender I set-up in the exact fashion as the first, and this one performed much better- still clunky, but properly forwarded 1 in 5 remote clicks. I decided to live with it and fully installed the unit. To my dismay the functionality returned to the poor performance of the first one. Frustrated, I assumed the problem was with the placement of the forwarding sensor. I moved that sensor a dozen times with no improvement. Later, I discovered the IR wouldn't work if I pointed the remote directly at the INPUT, but worked fine if I pointed it at a 90 degree angle away from it- or even if I pointed it completely away from it. Almost as if the sensor is designed to pick up the remote signal being bounced off a wall. I moved the IR sensor behind the TV pointed downward at the floor and it is now working great.

    There may be some electronic pro's out there laughing that this placement is common knowledge. Well, I'm no pro, and so far as I can tell this device isn't marketed strictly for pro's. A slightly more in-depth instruction manual that covered this issue would have made an extremely frustrating install much, much easier. Even in my communications with Monoprice support did they address sensor placement. Additionally, it's likely the first extender was fine, and the delay I incurred due to troubleshooting efforts and eventual RMA further the frustration.

    But in the end it's working good. Were it not for it's woefully poor instructions I would've rated it 9 or 10.

    Hopefully this long-winded review will help others. FYI, my UVerse STB model is a Motorola VIP1200

    PROS: Transmits video and audio well, wall plate provides for a very neat looking installation. Although unsure before purchasing, happy to confirm it works with AT&T UVerse.

    CONS: Extremely vague instructions, particularly regarding IR sensor placement. Monoprice tech support that could be quicker and more knowledgeable about this item.

    works well with IR receiver from PID 7537
    The IR sensor that comes with this device almost doesn't work at all. It would randomly and very poorly pickup commands from the remote and it would only do that if the remote was within 12 inches of the sensor... fortunately... I have an unused PID 7537 and this has a much better IR sensor on it.... when I plugged that IR sensor into this device it actually worked pretty good, especially when you are within 10-12 feet of the sensor its just about perfect, out side that 12 foot mark it gets a bit weaker though it still works... btw I mounted the sensor on top of the bezel of my wall mounted 43" plasma using 2 way tape.... so in short the sensor that comes with this device is terrible, while the sensor that comes with PID 7537 is great. Audio and Video Transmit flawlessly using cheapest 28awg monoprice HDMI cables, 25' cat5e network cables, and a Motorola VIP1200 HD 720p set top box



    PROS: Video and Audio transmit flawlessly.
    IR Transmit is ok when paired with the IR sensor from PID 7537.
    Price is quite good.

    CONS: included IR sensor almost doesn't work at all.

    Works...mostly...
    I bought these with 50ft cables to run from the back of my living room to my TV. After trying for weeks to get this to work correctly and having multiple different technical support people and getting different answers, I finally got them working for 1080p. I have a PS3, and a Rogers cable box going through my Denon AVR 1910. I couldn't get any picture for a long time, and was finally able to get 1080i only from my PS3 directly.

    I found a separate voltage adapter from a different company that grounded the voltage on the HDMI line, and replaced it with a stead +5V. That made all the difference. I now get 1080p video as expected except from my PS3...from that I still can only get 1080i steadily. Next up is to try buying a powered extender to boost the signal strength. Hopefully that will end my odyssey of trying to run HDMI long distances for 1080p.


    PROS: Easy to run long distances
    backwards IR
    cheap

    CONS: Doesn't work from some AVRs
    Might need a separate power supply
    Needed to use 24AWG HDMI cables
