Infrared remote control extender + HDMI CAT5/6 (4 inputs)


Novice Member

I just found out that I can hide all my equipment using the IR Extender and just have one wire coming to the TV, I am very impressed. I been look at various devices, I've read that you can have one transmitter and one receiver (to connect to 4 or more devices using the emitters). Then, I came across HDMI over CAT5/6 and I like that option. However, I four devices with four different remote controls. Most of the IR HDMI over CAT5/6 I looked at only had 1 or 2 emitters.

Does anyone know which is the best devices for IR HDMI over CAT5/6 and affordable and that has 4 or more inputs?

Your feedback will be appreciated as I been looking for some answers.

Thanks, Dave

Depends on what you class as affordable?

There are "cheap" options on the likes of Amazon, which may or may not work for you. But it all gets more complicated when you put it over cat6. You may be looking at a 4x2 matrix like this :®-HDMI-TRUE-MATRIX-Distribution/dp/B002E50R02/ref=sr_1_3?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1449800950&sr=1-3&keywords=hdmi+matrix

Then add the HDMI extender :

And probably best with an all in one remote at the same time. Somewhere in the region of £200 plus cat6 cables or something.

Or there are reliable options which, once set-up, should be pretty trouble free. And more like an all in one system. But you're looking at 4 figures for something like that... Matrix & Kits - Polar Audio
