5 out of 5 eggs It works but trouble with WMC PC 02/29/2012

This review is from: HDMI Over Cat5 Active Extender Kit


It took some work but the product is now performing just as described. Initially, I had some problems getting it to play properly with a Windows Media Center on my PC. After some fiddling however, I came to understand the issue was with Windows Media Player (default DVD player) and not my PC or the Tripp Lite product. When I started using TotalMedia 3 by ArcSoft, all the problems went away and it now works perfectly.


a little expensive but that's okay.

Other Thoughts:

The instructions are very basic and that's a bit disappointing. I'd like to see some more information in there specifically around the specs needed to make it work over Cat5e wiring. Just because your wire is Cat5, you are not guaranteed a certian throughput.
