Hi all,

I have a brand spanking new computer with a graphics card capable of supporting full 4k resolutions. The computer sits next to cat5/6 hookup.

I also have two 4k TVs in my house, each with cat5/6 hookups near them. These cables all route to a central hub upstairs.

My goal is to be able to connect my computer (in one room) to the other TVs in the house via cat5/6 over hdmi. The intent is not gaming or anything, just the ability to watch 4k quality video from PC -> TV. Is this possible? Everything will have to flow through the cable hub obviously. What extenders or splitters are needed or recommended? and can they support 4k? Also how can I control my computer from another room? (a wireless keyboard will not reach the pc obviously)

thanks in advance for the input.
 
You can use the cat5/6 cables with HDMI converters but they have to support HDMI 2.0 (as does you PC HDMI output). There are two ways to do this. First is to convert the cat cables to HDMI with converters.

The second is to use HDMI over IP converters

How you control the PC is a separate issue.
Depending on what source of 4K material you will be watching a Roku4 for each TV might be a better solution.

I think the first option is what I was thinking. Would this still work when routing cables from source > to a network split in a different room > to TV/media center? I am reading you need a direct connection from source to target.

Thanks for the assist!
