hdmi over cat5 - all pairs used?


Standard Member
It's a long story as to why... but I'd like to run both screen trigger (5v) and an HDMI/cat5 sender over one piece of cat5e. 1080p. If it's possible it'll save me a lot of DIY.

Does anyone know if this is possible?

The senders are wyrestorm ex-1utp-ir-40

Thanks very much for any help,

All 4 pairs are used I'm afraid.

You could look at an RF trigger for the screen. There are various simple off the shelf solutions available. RF Solutions make a decent range.
