Why not buy this HDMI over CAT5 with ARC today?
ARC can simplify your home theater system in two important ways. The first, and perhaps most useful feature ARC brings to the table is the ability to use one remote for all of your connected devices most common functions.
The most common example would be for users who have added a soundbar, HTIB, or other secondary audio device to their TV. As long as both devices are equipped with ARC, simply connecting the component to the TVs ARC HDMI port will allow for control of power, volume, and other features from your TV remote. In most cases, it will also simply transfer your TV audio to the unit automatically without having to deactivate the TVs on-board speakers.
This feature is extremely useful for those who connect gaming consoles, Blu-ray players, set-top boxes, and other devices directly to the TV rather than an audio receiver. It allows for significantly better audio performance for all of your content than what youll get from a TV alone, but without having to think about the audio device.
Alternatively, ARC is also handy for other outboard components like streaming devices. Plugging the Chromecast into your TVs ARC port, for instance, may allow you to automatically switch sources or even turn on your TV when you click the cast icon on your phone or tablet. You may find similar results with other components as well, including Blu-ray players.
In through the out door
The other important function ARC performs is sending signals both upstream and downstream over a single connection, meaning signals can travel in and out of a device over a single ARC HDMI port and cable. Downstream refers to signal that is being passed from the source, say a Blu-ray player, down to another device. Upstream would then mean sending signal the opposite way over the same cable. Why is that necessary? Convenience.

For those who use an Audio/Video receiver (or a soundbar with multiple HDMI inputs) as a hub instead of their TV, ARC can still simplify cable connections a little. While audio and video from various sources is going directly to an A/V receiver in this kind of setup, any audio coming from the TV still needs to get to the receiver somehow. For instance, lets say that the television is the preferred smart device in the bunch. Any audio from Netflix, Hulu plus, etc., will only play out of the TV if it is sent to the receiver somehow. In the past, this would have required another cable, usually an optical digital cable. But with HDMI ARC, audio can be sent back down to the receiver through the same cable that already connects the two devices. For those with wall-mounted TVs, thats one less cable to snake through the wall!
Another important point to consider is that the above method of connection is preferable for those who want to utilize the full sound capabilities of DTS and Dolby surround sound from Blu-ray, DVD, and gaming content. In many cases, connecting a component to the TV directly will reduce the signal to two-channel audio, and it may also reduce the sound resolution. Routing the audio signal through the receiver instead will preserve the original, high-definition audio signal, ensuring you get the best possible experience.
Lets say you dont have an A/V receiver, though. Some high-end soundbars also include multiple HDMI inputs to allow a direct connection from a Blu-ray player or other source, allowing you to preserve the audio quality. Again, you can connect the bar to the TV via the ARC HDMI connection to pass the video signal to the TV, and also to receive audio back from TV programming, or other components connected to the TV. If preserving the full-scale audio signal is important to you, youll want to do some due diligence about the available audio connections before you decide on a soundbar

Extend high-resolution HDMI and IR up to 100M with this HDMI over single cat5e/cat6 extender. This
extender uses HDBaseT technology to extend uncompressed high-definition video/audio with a data
transfer rate of 10.2Gbps. This product also meets all HDMI v1.4 standards including full 3D support,
HDMI Ethernet Channel, audio return channel and 4Kx2K Resolution. Additional Ethernet ports on both
the Sender and Receiver are connected to standard network devices such as 100Base-T routers, hubs
and computers. HDMI and Ethernet signal can be transmitted simultaneously without affecting each
other. This product offers the ideal solution for extending high-definition video and audio over long
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 CAT6.
HDTV Supply has created dozens of HDMI extenders over CAT5e/6 with various features for your needs.

Q: Q: What will I be able to do with an Audio Return Channel enabled device?
A: If your HDTV has a built-in tuner, DVD player, or other digital content source, the Audio Return Channel allows the TV to send audio data "upstream" to your A/V receiver, eliminating the need for a separate audio cable in this type of configuration. Audio Return Channel-enabled TVs can either send or receive audio via the HDMI link, giving you greater flexibility in how you set up your home theater equipment and making a separate upstream audio link unnecessary.
Q: Which audio formats are supported over the Audio Return Channel?
A: The Audio Return Channel supports all the same audio formats that can be sent through a traditional S/PDIF audio connection, including Dolby Digital, DTS, and PCM audio.
Q: Is the HDMI LipSync feature compatible with the Audio Return Channel?
A: Yes. Whether the TV is sending audio to the sound system or vice-versa, devices featuring LipSync functionality (introduced in HDMI 1.3) will be able to track and correct for any processor lags, and adjust the delivery of audio and video so that the two signals stay in sync.
Q: Do I need special HDMI cables for ARC?
A: 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?
A: 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?
A: 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?
A: Yes and 2 - AC adapters for them.
Q: This HDBaseT Balun supports CEC, what is CEC?
A: 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?
A: 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?
A: The Users Manual is at the MANUALS Tab at the product page.
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).

Ask a question about the 4K WolfPack HDMI over CAT5 with HDMI ARC or Call 833-WOLFPACK (833-965-3722)
Q: Does the HDMI extender send ARC to my AV receivers HDMI output?
A: 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?
A: Try these..
Set the source device resolution to the same resolution of the TV, like 1280x720p to 720p.
Set any EDID to it default.
Makes the CAT5e/6 cable per the above manual.
Use Cat5e/6 home runs and do not use internet hubs, wall plates and couplers.
See the above Q/A Tab.
Q: ARC doesn't seem to be working, can you help?
A: Try this:
Make sure you are installing HDMI 1.4 cables that include ARC, see our specs at HDMI cables with ARC
The TV must support ARC and it must be turned ON ARC ON
The unique TVs HDMI input must say it supports ARC
Set the AV receivers or other device to ARC ON
Make sure CAT5e/6 STP connectors are put on "B"
Turn CEC ON
Leave EDID at its default.
