This HDMI extender supports the audio from the TV to be sent from HDMI ARC or Digital optical audio mode from the HDMI receiver back to the HDMI transmitter. On the HDMI receiver when ARC and optical digital inputs signals simultaneously, it will use optical digital as the priority transmission. On the HDMI transmitter when it receives digital audio signal, it will output simultaneously from ARC and optical digital.

We recommend the use of Ethernet cable of high quality such as UTP cable, cat.5e, cat.7, cat.6a and cat.6. This is because low quality cables are constructed improperly and they may lead to disruptions in sound, video and appearance of pictures due to unstable connection. If you are connecting your cable through wall socket, make sure the length of cable is 5 meters less between wall jack and HDMI extender. However, 10/100 Mbps network connection can be created using a working distance of 100M with general CATS.

Q: Do I need special HDMI cables for ARC?
Yes, you need HDMI 1.4 or above HDMI cables that support internal Ethernet and ARC. See our above OPTIONS.

Q: What is ARC on this HDMI over CAT5 with ARC?
The (ARC) Audio Return Channel in HDMI 1.4 enables a TV, via a single HDMI cable, to send audio data upstream to an A/V receiver or surround audio controller, increasing user flexibility and eliminating the need for any separate S/PDIF audio connection.

TVs have always been able to receive multi-channel audio through an HDMI connection, and this is still a typical use-case, with the TV positioned downstream from content sources and any connected audio equipment. However, if a user had a TV with a built-in tuner or DVD player, and wanted to send content upstream from the TV back to the audio system, a separate connection had to be installed, typically an S/PDIF cable.

Q: How does the remote IR work?
The package includes 1-Infra-Red cable for the transmitter as the receiver has a built-in IR window (See the above MORE PICTURES Tab). That window must so positioned to see the remote control in the far away room. The HDBaseT transmitter has a 3.5mm jack to plug the IR cable into and then the other end of the cable is placed in front of the IR window of the device you want to control. You can secure it there with a piece of tape.

Q: Does it include both a transmitter and a receiver?
Yes and 2 - AC adapters for them.

Q: This HDBaseT Balun supports CEC, what is CEC?
This product features CEC (Consumer Electronics Control) allowing your HDTV's remote to manage up to ten devices that are connected via HDMI (such as Blu-ray Disc players or home theater receivers) with no special programming needed. For example, you can use your remote to turn on your TV, your player, and your receiver at the same time, and adjust the system volume with one button. All devices must support CEC, though. Most major TV manufacturers now support CEC, and an HDTV with HDMI 1.3 will likely have the technology. Manufacturers call it by different names; LG Electronics, for instance, calls its implementation SimpleLink, whereas Toshiba calls its version CE-Link. Interoperability isn't mandatory, so some manufacturers limit control to their own products; Sony, for one, allows only Sony-to-Sony communication.

Q: How is HDBaseT technology different than others?
Unlike other HD distribution technologies, HDBaseT is the only technology which enables CAT5/6/7 connectivity from 70 meters to 100 meters, depending upon the specific product, for uncompressed full HD multimedia content and up to 100 watts of charging power via a single cable. HDBaseT is optimized for video applications and can connect all HDBaseT enabled home entertainment devices. Also, HDBaseT technology has the capacity to deliver double the resolution available today to future 2K and 4K formats. Other existing solutions also require a specific cable and/or a new proprietary connector while HDBaseT utilizes the existing Ethernet infrastructure.

Q: Where can I find info on the remote IR function?
The Users Manual is at the MANUALS Tab at the product page.

HDMI HDbaseT Extender Helpful Tips & Recommendations:

  • Keep cables away from any equipment with an electromagnetic wave, e.g., mobile phone, microwave, radio equipment, fluorescent lamp, high voltage power lines, etc.
  • CAT5/6 cables should not exceed 220 feet or (70m).
  • Please adhere to the TIA/EIA568B standards when terminating network cables in the field.
  • Shielded CAT5/6 with metal RJ-45 connectors are recommended to safeguard against random video flashes caused by electromagnetic interference (EMI).

Your email:
Your question:

Q: Does the HDMI extender send ARC to my AV receivers HDMI output?
Yes but you need to enable HDMI-CEC in both the TV and receiver. If you're familiar at all with HDMI-CEC, you probably think of it as that feature that automatically turns off your devices when you don't want it to--but HDMI-CEC isn't just about sending power commands to connected components. CEC stands for "Consumer Electronics Control," and it needs to be enabled in both the TV and AV receiver for ARC to function.

The HDMI-CEC setting is likely located in the general settings menu, and it can go by a variety of names. Samsung calls it "Anynet+," and the menu includes separate options for control and power (see photo). The control option needs to be on, but you can leave the auto power function off, if desired.

Q: My picture is jumpy, what do I do?
Try these…
  1. Set the source device resolution to the same resolution of the TV, like 1280x720p to 720p.
  2. Set any EDID to it default.
  3. Makes the CAT5e/6 cable per the above manual.
  4. Use Cat5e/6 home runs and do not use internet hubs, wall plates and couplers.
  5. See the above Q/A Tab.
Q: ARC doesn't seem to be working, can you help?
Try this:
  1. Make sure you are installing HDMI 1.4 cables that include ARC, see our specs at HDMI cables with ARC
  2. The TV must support ARC and it must be turned ON ARC ON
  3. The unique TVs HDMI input must say it supports ARC
  4. Set the AV receivers or other device to ARC ON
  5. Make sure CAT5e/6 STP connectors are put on “B”
  6. Turn CEC ON
  7. Leave EDID at its default.
