Rated 3 out of 5 by from HDMI Part works well...... Using this to send hdmi from my sky box on ground floor to a bedroom in a loft conversion. I used cat 6 cable, and the picture looks great. Unfortunately there is a annoying problem, the IR receiver in the lost will only pick up the signal from the remote over a very small range, about 2m, and only if 100% pointing directly at the front of the receiver. This means I cannot change channel when in bed, which, given the planning and work that went into getting the cat 6 cables embedded in walls etc. is a real pain. Luckily I can use my ipad to control the sky box, but it's a shame such a good product is spoiled by a ineffective or receiver.
