MegaView61 HDMI Extender over CAT5 with Infrared Return

Marmitek MegaView61
Marmitek have just added new wired video extender products.  The range topping MegaView61 is an affordable £90 and sends 1080P HDMI signals over 2 CAT5 cables.  It includes an IR return to control the source equipments too.

"How does it work? A set-top box has numerous outputs. You connect the local TV to one of the set-top box’s outputs. The other output is connected to the video transmitter. You can also use a splitter. You place the required CAT5 cable(s) between the video transmitters’ transmitter and receiver. The video transmitters with infrared return also have an infrared receiver that you can, for example, stick under your TV, and an infrared LED that you can then stick to the connected source. This allows you to operate the decoder from different places in your home.

Watching your SD or HD content on a TV located elsewhere has never been so simple!"

    I bought this to connect my sky hd to a tv 40 meters away from the hd box.

    The picture quality is fantastic, I’m a videophile and can’t see any deterioration in quality whatsoever.

    I didn’t hold back on hdmi leads and good quality cat5 shielded solid core wire.

    The infrared return has been a bit more problematic. Sometimes it stops working for no reason, the only resolution is to unplug the eye from the box and plug it back in. I have also taped down the hdmi receiver box and leads to stop them from moving as this stops the remote sensor from failing too.

    I am very happy with this product now I have it figured out.

  2. Hello

    Has anyone used powerline over electric as a bridge between the CAT5 cables?

    Powerline is for sending Ethernet. Whilst this device uses CAT5 for connectivity, it does not send ‘ethernet’ compatible signals, therefore using powerline adapters would not work.
