This post for Forum Archieves.

Calrad is pleased to announce the first HDMI Ver 1.2, HDCP compliant Balun system using a single Cat5e, Cat6 cable. These devices can provide much longer cable distances then conventional HDMI wiring using new or pre-existing inexpensive solid conductor UTP Cat5e, Cat6 cables.

So for a whole wall mounted solution do you have wall boxes etc to complete the installation package?

Yes we have a model that will be released in April that mounts in a single gang box with a designer style wall plate.

Sorry for the late reply, I never received a notification of your post here.

I don't seem to be able to find at several of the online retailers I have visited. Is this unit shipping?

Hey Wes,

When, or have you come out with a v1.3 that will support audio?

Marbles,

This unit supports audio but will not reliably do the Dolby TrueHD or DTS-HD formats, this is why we rate the unit to HDMI Ver 1.2. We have some new units that use 2 Cat5e/6 cables that will do Ver 1.3b1. I will be posting them in the news section soon. :D

Great, thanks for the quick feedback Wes. Didn't realize 1.3 will require 2 Cat runs. This is good to know...would've sucked if the wall was closed up, then find out an extra run would have been required.

Thanks again.

Do you get powerline adapters over there in the US? http://www.solwise.co.uk/net-powerline.htm

I use this to provide ethernet to the lounge from the router and works a treat. Happily streams everything I throw at it. Only downside is that it cannot work in an extension block. But main benefit is no breaking walls down to lay cables :D

Just a thought..........

I stumbled across this product:
http://www.firefold.com/Products/HDMI-W ... BALUN.aspx
and according to the product sheet:
http://www.firefold.com/specsheets/40-1 ... -sheet.pdf
this product is made by Calrad Electronics, but I am not able to find any more information about it on your site.

Does this balun support HDMI v1.3 and all of its digital audio counterparts?

Thanks,
