I installed this extender on a dedicated CAT5/6 network with an additional receiver. The HDMI input from a DVD player was accessible from two TVs in other rooms, in addition to a directly connected TV. I was impressed by the signal quality and ability to use an IR remote to control the DVD player from other rooms. The ability to expand this system is impressive. Having previously owned a system using COAX there is no comparison with simplicity, reliability and value of the HD-Link
Video was laggy, but the flexibility from the design is nice. Transmitter unit channel should be set with dip switches so that it is more difficult to change once set.
I bought the HD link HL 21 transmitter and two receivers for our church to run my live stream output from my blackmagic atem pro to both lobby TVs I’ll be adding at least 3 more receivers in the near future. I love the ease of use and set up
Pros: Very easy setup/config, basically plug/play. Clear picture over TCP/IP network shared or dedicated. Can build almost an end-less network HDMI channels with the Matrix. Love!Cons: Wish I could dim the status LEDs... I have a red glow behind my TV now, but not that big of a deal.Other: Even though I ran a separate CAT6 network to share my HDMI, I did test it on my existing CAT5e home network and it worked beautifully! I used this to spread my security cameras to all my TV.... but will order additional units to share additional signals using the matrix.
