JimmyLizar: PDL are due to release "a new range of AV modules which includes HDMI" in September, but you probably dont want to wait that long.

Did they say what year? Smile

It's probably been close to 3 years since I was first told they had one in development!

Haha, yeah you are right.  I emailed them in Dec08 asking if the had one.  They (Schneider Electric) replied saying that it was in development and would be released mid 2009. 

When I saw this thread I emailed back asking if it had been released.  They replied today saying it would be September this year.

Whether it actually happens or not is anybodies guess.

nellyt: No sign of a PDL 600 HDMI plate that I can find.

Any suggestions for the 3xRG6 and 2XRJ45's ?

PDL don't seem to have a good solution for this apart from 5 modules in a 5 way 600-plate?
A lot of people must need this sort of thing or similar?

whats wrong with 5 modules in a 5 way (or 6 way) 600 plate?  what would you consider a 'good golution'?

I did just this last weekend.  I previously had the 'hole-drilled-in-a-blank-faceplate' solution, with all cables coming through it, and a phone socket above that, and an RF outlet too.

It's now been changed to a 6-way face plate, with PDL 600 sockets, as follows:
  1) RF Sky  (they were out of stock of an F-type one)
  2) RF TV aerial
  3) RF IN  (for TV+Sky combined feed to rest of house)
  4) BT Phone  (for Sky+ADSL modem, now relocated to entertainment cabinet)
  5) RJ45  (for network feed to one other room in the house, where the PC is) - no others elsewhere
  6) no module inserted, but home theatre speakers and component video cable coming through it

Next to that is an HDMI-Cat5/6 wallplate, which I sourced from the US.  All looks rather neat really, IMO.

I realise the whole BT/RJ45 setup isn't probably the best setup in an ideal world, but for my purposes it works, and I can't install a centralised patch panel etc (not cheaply anyway!) - maybe in a new house one day!

OK so I've got some HDMI sockets from Jaycar.

I now need the "ADC/Krone keystone adpaters" to enable me to fit these into a 600 series plate.

I've been unable to find them anywhere in ChCh, maybe I'm asking in the wrong places or asking for the wrong thing.
I've tried TradeMe, Jaycar, DSE, GlobalPC, IdealElectrical and some other electrical wholesalers, all with no luck and frowned expressions. 

(I need four)

Hi, most suppliers should carry them, I only purchased 30 yesterday from Cory's (so any Crane electrical outlet including Mastertrade, should be able to get them in) their code 959964, which is ADC Krone's part 6467 1 122-00, if you still have no luck then I can throw some in a envelope for you, PM me if you need them.
