    Hi,

    I'd like to connect a Sky STB to a TV about 30m away, without using a video sender, and with stereo sound (hence not with co-ax).
    I've found the below site:

    http://www.iphomenet.com/productpages/avswitch.html

    which seems to sell 2 products called the IP-AVS-ICAB and IP-AVS-PLAS which respectively convert a SCART signal (composite video + stereo sound) into an ethernet compatible format, then decodes at the other end, back into a SCART plug.

    I've sent a few emails to the company, but just keep getting dismissed by a sales guy saying I need their full IP Homenet system with AV HUB. However I think I could connect up the 2 devices above with cross-over cat5e cable, to take place of the HUB.

    Does anyone have any experience of using the IP Homenet product? Or if not, does anyone know if the 2 items above (or any product you know of) will do what I want (connect a STB over ethernet)?

    cheers,

    Jack.

    Can't find the website now. There is a guy who does adapters for running video, s-video , RGB and various audio over networks.

    I'll keep looking, I think it's called Kat5.

    Thanks very much retro! - His site has exactly what i'm looking for!

    I've just sent him an email asking to buy a sender and receiver.

    Cheers

    Jack.
