    Hey guys, already making plans for christmas since last one it was impossible for me tu put a single pixel in front of my house.
    Although i know i can use some null pixels i prefer to buy a couple of px extenders. The distance will be around
    Any reccomendation?

    At 6 metres you may not even need to have any pixel extenders or power injection. Ive done 6 metres many times. I would do some testing first to see if it goes the required 6 meters without any addition hardware

    Hey rvenegas, I ended up getting some of my runs to around 10-12m from a J1Sys P12s using Cat5 and running a separate Fig8 for the power, WITHOUT ANY EXTENDERS
    i.e. Fig8 = + (Positive) & - (Negative)
    Cat5 = Brown & Brown/White (twisted) for - (Neg) & Green for Data

    Any questions let me know,
