Solved running hdmi over cat6

Specs: Windows 7
I know that you can run hdmi extensions with dual cat6 network cables and conversion boxes, but if I need to run video only, do I still need to run both cat6 lines or can I just run one?

✔ Best Answer
If you are talking about just not running the audio portion of the HDMI then you need to understand that the audio is a very small portion of the signal compared to the video, so the answer is Yes, you DO need both.
I do not know much about the particular device and you can confirm this with the manufacturer's tech support, BUT just understanding a little bit about the signal involved would give you the answer alone. I doubt that the device would work at all with only one connected, but experimenting or asking their tech support would be the only ways to tell for sure.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

(sigh) That's what I was thinking too. I'm running enough cables as it is and I was hoping to slim that number by one, but I didn't figure it would be as clean cut as "one for video, one for audio". I appreciate the info.
