  • Anyone had any experience of using HDMI over cat6 aka 'HDBase-T'? I'm looking at this one, because of the integrated KVM although reliability looks a bit flakey from the reviews.

  • I've got a couple of these (not that specific model, just HDMI over CAT6 extenders) and they are OK.

    A bit picky about exactly what they transfer (one seems to strip out anything above stereo sound for instance, another doesn't like an SD signal) and occasionally flickers so you have to "re-pair" them. Hard to tell but I'd say picture quality isn't quite as good.

    Why not just use remote desktop or similar?

    They’re more expensive than the average Amazon trash, but they’re rock solid, pass everything, and the compression isn’t obvious. Work as well as proper KVM boxes from Adderlink etc that cost 3/4x as much.
