what devices for usb/hdmi over CAT 6
« on: August 23, 2016, 10:37:48 AM »
Hi,

I'd like to do a bit of "physicalizing" desktops.  I've got the pass-through working ok, but am wondering what people (Don especially) use for passing HDMI and USB over CAT 6?

I see items like the Startech here, but that's very price prohibitive.

I also see the other individual adapters that are much cheaper like these:

but running 3 cat 6 calbes per physicalized desktop doesn't seem like a great idea.  What specific adapters are people using?  Thanks!
