  • What's Included
  • Distribute high-definition component or composite video and digital or left and right audio over extended distances using inexpensive cat. 5 wire. The Cat. 5 Distribution Receiver works with the Cat. 5 Distribution Amplifier - Transmitter (sold separately), which delivers a single component video signal or three composite video signals along with digital or analog audio up to 300 feet in 1080i; if you use cat. 6 cable instead, the maximum distance is 500 feet. Each connected room will require Cat. 5 Distribution Receiver; the transmitter can support up to two rooms.

    Expandable System Connects Additional Video Sources
    The Cat. 5 Distribution Amplifier/Transmitter features video and audio loop output to accommodate future expansion to additional cat. 5 transmitters and receivers. Additional features include a discrete passive IR channel for the use of external IR remote control systems.

    Works perfect. Best solution for distributing HD via CAT cables. I use it to deliver HD satellite to 4 tv's from 1 receiver.

    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).

    Worked perfect right out of the box. Great picture and audio. Installed this with the matching transmitter about 8 months ago and have had zero issues.

    Not ajustable for less than 100'. Extremely poor signal quanlity, unaceptable for HD aplications.
