Hello all, I'm just settled into my new house and got my HT all setup. I like =) When building, I ran a lot of extra Cat5 cable to each room for various purposes. One of which was so that I could send audio and video over the Cat5 using a device like seen here: http://www.muxlab.com/products/ve_svd_s-av_balun.html and http://shop.store.yahoo.com/videowar...iobalun17.html Now that I'm in, I'm thinking that I could build these devices. It seems to me that you'd simply connect the appropriate connectors' (RCA or S-Video) pins to the wires in the Cat5 (or RJ-45 connector, whichever way you chose to). I know that these commercial devices use a single pair for each audio channel (which make sense) and 4 wires for S-Video (which also makes sense). I guess my question is, wouldn't a straight connection work for this stuff? I mean, you shouldn't have to put in any resistors or anything to change the signal as you're using the Cat5 essentially as a long piece of wire with much lower loss. Any input is appreciated. Thanks, Mike W.
