Essential Info

Tired of having your HDTV and cable box/DVD player chained together? The Vanco 280517 gives you the ability to place your television up to 100 feet away from whatever device you are using as a source. Your video device HDMI plugs into the wall plate transmitter unit, which is then connected to a wall plate receiver up to 100 feet away by a pair of CAT 5e/6 cables. The receiver then connects to your HDTV with an HDMI cable. Whether temporarily moving your television into another room or due to limitations with your home's setup, this device helps overcome the signal loss inherent to lengthy HDMI cable setups.

No power supply required - requires source that provides 5V DC HDMI Signal.


Transmission Range:
  • Solid Cat 6 UTP/STP 23-24 AWG: 100 ft, 1080p
  • Solid Cat 5e UTP/STP 24 AWG: 75 ft, 1080p

I am giving this product a rating of one only because there is not a lower rating available. This balun doesn't work at all. I tried everything to make it work and it just doesn't. I even tested it with one foot factory Cat5e cables and three foot HDMI cables. I gave up and purchased a wireless HDMI extender from a local retailer. Should have done that from the beginning, works great.

Does not work. I bought a wireless hdmi extender that works great, so I know its not my equipment or the wireless one wouldn't work either.
