    YURIY -- morganville, NJ   11/6/2009
    Works great with extending 1080iHD to second room, a bonus is built-in IR distribution wiring, works well with Xantech IR kits (plug and play - no wire splicing needed).
    ROBERT -- needles, CA   2/20/2008
    Signal quality was extremely poor. This is unaceptable for an HD signal. Baluns are a much better alternative.
