I have a new Samsung 8 Series television that uses the Samsung One Connect system. It does not have any HDMI ports on the television. You make your HDMI connections to the One-Connect box and it connects to the television.
I want to locate the cable box in the closet with the rest of my networking equipment. There are two Cat 5 cables, properly terminated (they've been tested), running from the closet to the television set. I purchased the KanexPro HDMI extender to transmit the HDMI signal from the cable box over CAT 5 to the television set. Unfortunately, all I get is a blue screen on the television set; it is not recognizing the signal from the cable box. I tested the KanexPro with an earlier model Samsung television set with both a cable box and Apple TV and it worked fine.
Does anyone have any experience with the Samsung One-Connect system and HDMI extenders? Do you have a set up that works? Is there a different HDMI extender on the market that works? I see Leviton and LeGrand each sell one. Are these any different than the KanexPro? Or do they use the same technology? I hate to continue to toss good money after bad and buy another brand only to have it not work as well.
Any help would be appreciated.
