Hi,

Where in NZ can I buy audio or audio-video baluns to move left and right audio over my home network which is all cat6?
There are some CCTV ones on TradeMe which say they pass video/audio and power.  Could I use one of these and send left and right audio over the audio and video connectors (ie. use the video connector to send an audio signal)???

I do have one set of audio-video baluns from eBay but they come from the US and aren't that cheap.

Thanks

No, the video winding is totally different to the audio one in the cctv ones I have used. I was hoping to get a second cam on the audio jack on one, but the resulting image was a grey flickering mess with a vauge aproximation of what was infront of the camera.

No chance of running spdif over the video balun on its own at all?

There are some suspect ones on the bay alright, like stereo and component video over a passive converter? On 4 pairs? - ahhh ok, whatever..

A guy I know runs www.wirednz.co.nz. at a guess they are about $70 a pair. Seem to be good quality tho.

I am actually looking a wiring a new house all cat6 and using the video/audio baluns to distribute TV and sound. I tested this last week with a dvd player 2x composite 3rca baluns and about 70m of cat 5e. Plus this cable had about 6 connectors in the middle. I couldnt fault the picture so will probably go with the fully structured solution to allow flexibility. Plus you can het HD balun that utilise 2 x cat5e.
