The house we just bought has a spot above the fireplace that has been pre-wired. They ran a bundled cable that contains 6 min RGB wires (green, blue, red, yellow, black, and white) and 2 cat5 wires over to a closet where I will put my SAT and DVD. I have a 55" plasma that is above the fireplace along with a Vizio soundbar. Right now I have connectors on the green/red/blue wires for component video but have to use analog audio and I have to change the connectors in the closet back and forth when I want to switch between TV and DVD. That has become a major pain so I want to change this and accomplish 2 things.
1. I want to have a setup in which I do not have to switch cables back and forth between sat box and DVD.
2. I want to have digital audio instead of analog.
Does anyone have any suggestions? Maybe some sort of HDMI over Cat5 setup? The problem is the one HDMI over Cat5 extenders I have seen is only for 1 source. I thought I would be able to add an AV receiver and run SAT and DVD through this and then only have one HDMI out to TV, but have been told that these extenders will not handle this type of setup using an AV receiver.
I'm lost on what my options are...please help.
