    will it transmit through coax 75 ohm splitters?
    A shopper on Jan 6, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Hello, thank you for your question. Unfortunately this unit will not function with a 75 ohm splitter. I apologize for the inconvenience.
    Will it work with RG59 for shorter runs?

    My house was built in 1989. It was pre-wired for cable with two outlets in most rooms and a distributed center at the cable service entrance, which I do not use. (We have dish.) I'm pretty sure the existing wiring is RG59 and NOT RG6.
    New User U on Jan 15, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Hello, RG6 cabling is highly recommended to get performance up to 100m. RG59 will work at a shorter distance, but the maximum distance is not established.

    Pre-terminated BNC cables (like the Monoprice Viper Series) are highly recommend for the best performance.

    I hope this information is useful. Thanks!
    I am trying to figure out how to run our TV Cable from our house to our barn which is about 300 feet from the house. I'm not concerned with fancy features like IR, just want to be able to watch football games while I work in my shop. Is this what I need (in addition to the RG-6 coaxial cable with BNC connectors)?
    Kerre K on Sep 1, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Yes, this model allows you to change channels as well.
    I have used it in the past and it works great.
    Standard coax cable uses F Connectors. Would there be any issue using an F connector to BNC adapter at each end? Also does this item INCLUDE the IR sender and receiver eye? I do not see it in the pictures.
    Keith S on Mar 7, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: For your second question, yes the IR eye and emitter come with the units.
    I am using two of these and would like to combine the IR outputs to drive one IR emitter. Can I use a 3.5mm stereo y-cord plugged into the two modules and plug the IR emitter into that instead of putting both IR emitters on my DTV reciever? Also would like to have IR control of a DTV box and BD player, can the output of one box drive two IR emitters?
    Bob L M on Nov 20, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Hello Bob- No. You cannot use a 3.5mm stereo y-cord to split Ir emitter into one. If you could use a 3.5mm stereo y-cord they would cancel each other out anyway.
    you will have to place both emitters on DTV receiver. You can use a dual output emitter, 1x emitter on DTV receiver and 1x on BD player
    I purchased this unit through Amazon. Upon installation, it worked fine, both video and audio, great in fact. However, after a 5 second power outage during a recent storm, I have lost the audio on the remote TV. I've unplugged and replugged both units to no avail. The feed is from the HMDI output from the cable box, which is split, one end to the TV, one end to the adapter.
    Everything else still works fine. Any suggestions?
    Roy W on Sep 3, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: did you try removing the 1x2 hdmi splitter from output of cable box and going straight into cable box?
    How do I use the bi-directional IR feature? I want to control my TV from my equipment. Swapping the IR Receiver and Transmitter didn’t seem to work. Can I use my own IR emitter?

    Does what is says...
    This device worked flawlessly right out of the box. The only hiccup prior to installation was I missed the BNC connector requirements. These are easily obtained online or at an electronics store but nonetheless is odd for the given use case. Most home cable connections are Type F so you will need a Type F female to male BNC plug.

    Blackbird HDMI extender over single Coax is DYNOMITE!
    The Blackbird HDMI extender over a single coax worked like a charm. Easy to install, compact and durable. This piece of equipment is priced right and it works! recommend to anyone who needs HDMI into a display but does not have a Cat cable or HDMI cable in place. works on 1x single coaxial cable
