  • The Niles Audio C5-HDMI T CAT-5 HDMI Transmit Balun is the most popular use of HDMI baluns. Instead of running a pre-made HDMI cable through the wall from an HDMI switching receiver to an HD display, you simply run two CAT-5 cables and use Niles Audio HDMI Baluns - a much easier (and less expensive) solution. Running HDMI cable inside a wall cavity is risky on new construction projects (the cable could get stolen or damaged), and it is virtually impossible in many retrofit projects.


    The Niles Audio C5-HDMI T CAT-5 HDMI Transmit Balun application is susceptible to problems due to the "handshaking" required by the HDMI specification. Handshaking refers to the establishment of communication between two HDMI devices - say a Blu-ray player through an A/V receiver to an LCD TV. During this initial communication, information about resolution, copy [rotection, and other parameters are negotiated between the two devices. If there are problems with this handshaking, the two devices will not communicate. If there is a problem, it is usually with the A/V receiver. There are two varieties of HDMI switching found on A/V receivers: "straight switching" and "switching with repeating." A/V receivers that use "switching with repeating" keep the critical handshaking engaged constantly for any connected HDMI device. When a switch occurs, they simply move from one "repeater" connection to another. This means you have less chance of failure. Straight switching units can be hit-or-miss. Also, in our testing we found that, by and large, "repeating" A/V receivers are capable of HDMI balun distances much greater than "switching" only A/V receivers. Therefore we recommend that "repeating" A/V receivers be used in this application.

    The Niles baluns work great. We had a new house build with Cat 5E run the TV location from the AV closet and I had the system up and running in about 20 minutes including terminating the RJ48 connectors. Full 1080P at about 70 feet on the wire runs.
