  4. Power indicator light – Lit when the TV receiver is on

Can HDanywhere TwinWire or SingleWire be used on existing networks?

Our HDTV multiroom products use the physical properties of the twisted pair copper cables to transmit an uncompressed HDMI signal. It does not alter or compress the HDMI transmission into IP for example.

It cannot be linked in to an existing IP network. Our latest HDBaseT models however can transmit both HDMI and Internet traffic over a single Cat5/6 cable.
