HDBaseT™ Daisy Chain Extender
Monoprice is a proud member of the HDBaseT™ Alliance
Add another 100 meters extension to the output of your HDBaseT™ Matrix or Splitter using this HDBaseT Daisy Chain Extender from Monoprice!
HDBaseT is the superior standard for extending HDMI® video signals to distances up to 100 meters over just a single Cat6 Ethernet cable (up to 70 meters using Cat5e cable). Additionally, each HDBaseT output can be daisy chained up to 8 times, giving a maximum total extension distance of up to 800 meters, using this Daisy Chain Extender.
This extender provides all the functionality of an HDBaseT receiver, with the addition of an HDBaseT output to extend the signal to another daisy chain repeater or to terminate it with a receiver. The extender features an HDMI video output, 3.5mm jacks for an IR receiver and transmitter, and a 2-port 100Base-TX Fast Ethernet switch.
This extender provides a minimum data transfer rate of 6.75Gbps, which means that it supports High Speed 1080p and 3D video signals, as well as high definition multichannel audio, including Dolby TrueHD™ and DTS-HD Master Audio™. The extender is compatible with all HDBaseT products from Monoprice and those from other manufacturers that conform 100% to the HDBaseT standard.

- 1x User's manual
PROS: Runs cooler now.
CONS: Not any more.
One quirk, though: if the unit gets powered off and on, the picture comes up all red. You need to unplug the input and let the unit reacquire the signal to get a normal picture again.
Unfortunately, the unit should have been made with a fan, as it gets really hot. The bottom of the right of the unit gets up over 125F degrees. Since there are no feet to raise it up there is no air flow under the unit. Turning it upside down puts the hot spot on top and drops the temp to about 115F.
Obviously the manufacturer knows about the heat issue, as the manual states:
"TO REDUCE THE RISK OF FIRE....Do not install or place this unit in a bookcase, built-in cabinet or another confined space. Ensure the unit is well ventilated."
PROS: Most affordable way to repeat or daisy-chain an HDBaseT signal.
CONS: Hot, hot, hot!
PROS: Really good idea and potentially very useful.
CONS: Doesn't work to spec
