    Hi

    I've a little issue with HDMI. About a year ago, I wired for a projector and put what I thought would be plenty of cable to cover most eventualities:

    10 x phono cable
    1 x RJ45

    I didn't know about HDMI then and thought I'd the bases covered with component. All I need is picture and wondered if anyone knows how to send HDMI using these cables.

    I've seen boxes which convert to 2 x RJ45, but I only put down one.

    Thanks

    I don't suppose you could use one of those 10 RCA cables to pull through an additional RJ45 cable?

    Best regards

    Unfortunately not - already considered this but the beams in the ceiling are going the wrong way and there's no way to do this.

    component = 3
    s-video = 2
    std video = 1
    total = 6

    thought a few extra wouldn't hurt, just as i put 1 x rj45 which had no use for either. wish i'd put 2 spare ones instead.
