I have a client who's server is in the basement with the local monitor on an HDMI cable, the monitor also has a VGA input. He wants to be able to see the 9 cameras on his living room, big screen TV (HDMI iput). I wanted to split the HDMI output from the server, run one HDMI to the local monitor and use the CAT5 cable I ran between the TV and the NVR with CAT5/HDMI converters.
I'm not sure what HDMI/CAT5 converters to use, there seems to be a big difference in price so I'm also conserned about quality.
Some notes, I'm in the US and I don't need to split the HDMI from the NVR, I can use both the VGA and HDMI from the server at the same time. VGA to the local monitor and HDMI (via converter) 40' to the big screen TV. I will be there in a couple of days and see if there is a VGA input available on the TV.
Any thoughts on either the equipment or maybe a wireless unit.
