NOT TRUE!


Using standard ends rather than the EZ variety WILL make the difference, as well as using HDBT extenders instead of the basic extenders.
It does not matter what ends you use. Cat-5e does not have the bandwidth required for HDMI over Ethernet cabling. That is why Cat-6 is used for this topology.

I ran my known wire through the framing. For difficult to reach boxes I also ran a length of smurf tube, leaving it empty.

Sorry but you are absolutely incorrect on this one.



With Component Video you could (I, and many others in the business did) run 1080P over CAT5e, so why wouldn't you be able to run 1080P via HDMI as well?


I'm in the audio/video industry (30+ years), and have many, many, installations using cat5e with both Component Video & HDMI extenders carrying 1080P, and they're working just fine.


In addition, if you use the EZ RJ45's the only extenders that will work with any consistency are the HDBT extenders, so yes, the type of ends DO make a difference.
