I just got an HDMI over cat5 extender (HDMI from computer --> wall plate --> cat5 --> wall plate --> HDMI --> Receiver), got it? I plug the HDMI cable into the laptop and it turns off... immediately, like I pulled the battery and power out.

I connected the computer directly (HDMI from computer --> Receiver) and it worked just fine.

I connected my PS3 through HDMI-->cat5 and it worked fine too.

I've updated the ATI drivers, downloaded the new catalyst center for windows 7. Anyone got any ideas?
I dont think its this simple but. Cat5 is basically 4 conductors. Cat6 is 10 maybe 2 of the the four used connectors act like a ground? does the manual specify cat5?
