Questions and Answers
I will tell you though - the type of HDMI cable used is important - I tried them with some cheaper cables and it would not work at all, switched them to better cables and they worked after that - though some of my laptops won't send signal through these, while others will - I assume it's a signal strength issue, but haven't tried a booster or powered splitter yet.
Installation is also ugly. Unless you're using an existing metal gang box that's mounted to a wall stud, it won't be flush. Use a plastic gang box that clamps on, and there will be significant gap between the wall and the outer plate.
PROS: Good signal even without external power.
CONS: Incompatible with Monoprice Matrix Switch 4x2 (HDX-402). Does not flush mount when using a plastic gang box. LED is too bright. Power adapters are not included.
PROS: Works great with 1080p, cheap.
CONS: does not support HDMI- CEC (control functions)
The one from the switch to the projector never needs to be disconnected or reconnected and we've successfully got a signal when moving through the selections of inputs (1, 2, 3, 4).
Testing from the front of the hall produced unreliably results and required the following method to work at all: turn off the switch, plug in the source (laptop, whatever), turn on the switch. Having to turn on and off the switch is an annoyance and I'm not sure we will live with it. We did try having the wall plates powered, but we couldn't tell a difference in how things worked. We are nearing the max length of the system (30 m) so perhaps that is just the issue with the unreliability. The issue with turning off the switch happens no matter the length of the run.
The instructions don't indicate under what circumstances you'd want to power the wall plates and how providing power interacts with the start up sequence (if at all).
When you have signal between the two wall plates you'll get both a blue LED (status) and red LED (power). It isn't obvious from the instructions that blue LED (status) means you are good to go.
FYI, the 5V power supplies for the wall plates don't come with the box. It be best if the description of the product was updated to note this. All that is there today says the power supplies are optional (not that they are not included in the product). Can anyone recommend someplace good to buy the power supplies?
The main reason for the 6 rating are the instructions for hooking up the source / sink. They read something like this:
1) Hook up the source (blu ray player)
2) Connect the ethernet cables
3) Hook up the sink (projector)
First of all, these are wall plate jacks, the first thing to be hooked up is the ethernet cables and they will never be removed once installed. Second, from the sparse instructions it wasn't obvious that the units will not work at all if you don't disconnect the sink prior to connecting the source. This causes the issue I described further up. This is really annoying because now I need to turn the switch off whenever I have a presenter switch laptops, etc. Anyone know of other solutions out there where I can swap the HDMI out on the fly?
PROS: If you have a stable configuration of a source (Blu Ray player) and sink (projector) then works really well.
CONS: If you want to be able to swap out the source at will, you need to make sure you know the pattern for hook up and disconnect really well.
Power and Status LED's
Option for 5V external power if needed
Cable strain reliefs provided with this PID
CONS: Extender could be recessed a bit more as it causes the faceplace to sit slightly raised from the wall
No screws provided to mount the extenders to the low voltage wall plates.
I bought these wall plates a few months ago and I am just getting around to installing them. I bought them to extend audio and video to 2 of my childrens rooms from a CPU installed in my basement IT room as I will be having them run a virtural desktop. I have installed 2 and both are working fine. Video and audio come through just fine. For my son's room the run was about 40-50 foot and it works fine without the adapter to boost the signal. For my youngest daughter I boosted the signal with the adapter as the run was between 90-100 feet.
A few notes on install. I ran all Cat 6 lines in conduit (smurf tube) to the box. I found that it was much easier to wire the receiver ends if you use the low voltage boxes (without sides or a back) rather than the traditional enclosed box. My exterior walls are ICF forms with a concrete center and I ended up cutting out the 2 1/2" of foam for plate installation. If you cut the wire a bit too long it makes it a tight squeeze getting the plug and wires in the box. Too short and it makes it hard to attach the RJ 45 to the wires.
PROS: Convenient and professional looking install, especially if it is visible.
CONS: It doesn't come with the power adapters needed to boost the signal but they are available for about $6.00 each online.
Had I known this, I would not have purchased this product.
PROS: Allows you to extend distance.
CONS: HDMI Link doesn't work
PROS: Works perfectly and price is right
CONS: None so far
PROS: - Picture is just as clear as it was using only a 8 ft HDMI cable.
- 5 V adapter jack is a nice add-on if I would need to use it.
PROS: Nice clean professional look. Can't beat the price! It WORKS,WORKS!!!
CONS: Outer case of the part was a tad too big to fit perfectly into the sigle gang electrical box. Had to modify the single gang box. Other than that,perfect.
PROS: Worked Great!!!! Fully functional
CONS: LED's are a little bright for a dark Theatre Room
