Pigtail HDMI Extender

Our Pigtail HDMI Extender by CAT-5e/6 uses two pieces of CAT-5e/6 cables to extend the HDTV display up to 30 meters for 1080p. It not only breaks the limitation of the HDMI cable transmission length,but also CAT-5e/6 has more flexibility and convenience in cable construction.
No Power Required!
Packed as a pair.

Both the sender and receiver are equipped with a fixed HDMI cable that allows consumers to reduce the cost of an extra HDMI cable. It is capable of supporting DVI (digital visual interface) equipment when used with an HDMI to DVI Adapter, providing greater flexibility and options when integrating several home theater components.

This product offers solutions for residential consumers: HDTV retail and show sites.

Uses: HDTV, MySky HDi, Freeview HD, PS3, XBox 360, Bluray and upscaling DVD players.  
Easy to install where the traditional HDMI cable maybe too tight for some inwall installations.

N.B. Both cat5/6 cable runs must be exactly the same length for correct HDMI timing. Installers often have problems correctly making the connections on cat5/6, an inexpensive cat5/6 cable tester is highly recommended to guarantee success. If these connections are not perfect, the result will be video or audio dropouts. For an easier way we suggest to use pre-terminated cable like below.

Concerned about fraud?
Unfortunately, the more the internet has become popular for shopping, the more we have seen instances of fraud affecting online shoppers. Companies trading under many different names, loading warranties and charging for them as extras when often they are included from the manufacturer. NZ suppliers refuse to repair broken parallel imports or personal imports. That is often alarming to the unsuspecting purchaser. Inflated freight charges, customs and GST at the border are often forgotten as a buyer is tempted by a lower price in the US or Asia. We hear these stories all the time, once bitten it’s all too late to ask for that refund or replacement. At times the stories are outrageous, when Trademe and Ebay customers have nowhere to go to, which is time consuming and very frustrating…..

A price too good to be true, usually is.
If you've ever searched for a product on a shopping engine (such as Priceme/Pricespy) you may have asked yourself: "Why are some stores charging so much less than other stores?"

Our customers often share these stories with us, so we thought we would share a few with you, hoping that you don't fall prey to any unscrupulous sales tactics.

- Goods may be grey market/parallel imported. They may state that the product includes the manufacturer warranty, but not tell you that the warranty is valid only in Europe, Japan, or South America, and NOT in NZ.
- You may be asked to buy an expensive extended warranty. In many cases if you do not purchase the warranty, your purchase will be denied. (The product is now out of stock, your card does not go through, etc.)
- Included parts may be sold to you separately. Some resellers will open boxes and charge extra for parts that are normally included by the manufacturer.
- Hidden charges that don't show up until your credit card statement arrives, these charges only show up when your credit card statement is sent to you.
- When something goes wrong: faulty, late delivery, doesn’t matter how many times you try to email, they don’t get back.
- There are so many scamming online sellers today, “buyer beware” protect yourself! 


So how do you protect yourself from online fraud?

- Buy from an authorized reseller. If you are at all suspicious, contact the manufacturer directly and ask if a company is authorized to sell their products.
- Make sure you get a company invoice with GST clearly marked.
- Make sure you buy from someone who has a phone number and an address on their website, not a P.O.Box number
- Read customer feedback, you can usually tell if it's genuine or not.

 We hope that you will become our next happy customer. And we promise to offer you superior service before, during and after your purchase.
