Great product and seems to be cheapest place to get it as well. Yes you can get a HDMI booster for 5quid cheaper but no it's not the same quality and the Neet booster has got some cracking reviews. I've got one and it sorted out the dropout problems with my 10meter hdmi cable. I thought it might help someone out.

All the best,
Gobbie

Product Description
This ultra compact Neet HD device extends the length of any HDMI cable by regenerating and amplifying the digital HDMI signal before repeating the output to the HDMI enabled HDTV, monitor or projector >>>>>>> NOTE : This is an ACTIVE repeater, NOT just a basic coupler or joiner >>>>>>> The Neet Repeater allows for extended runs of HDMI cable to over 50m with zero signal loss to deliver pure digital Full 1080p HD video and audio. For reliable HDMI extension to 20m and over we highly recommend the use of high quality genuine 24awg cables such as our own Neet 10m and 15m HDMI Cables (available from our Amazon store) >>>>>>> The Neet HDMI Repeater employs a high quality zinc alloy shell designed to eliminate EMI (interference) and the device will clean out any digital noise (sparkles) that may appear in your picture as a result of the extended HDMI cable run >>>>>>> The input of the HDMI Repeater is connected with the longest HDMI (male to male) cable from the HDMI device like DVD / Blu-ray player or Satellite set top box etc... The HDMI repeater output is then connected to a second HDMI (male to male) cable to connect the output to the HDMI enabled HDTV, monitor or projector ... The Repeater box should be placed as near to the display as possible to remove any noise that has been generated by the longest HDMI cable link from source >>>>>>> As with all Neet products we include our LIFETIME WARRANTY along with exceptional customer service... If you would like any help or advice please feel free to contact us.

Isn't this a fallacy like a Monster HDMI £60 cable?

Surely signal doesn't deteriorate like analogue because digital is transmitting 0's and 1's - therefore if no digital code is being received at one end, then your TV will be blank?

Don't think digital signal deteriorates at all.

Sparkles are caused by knackered cables - not loss of signal, regardless of length.
no this boosts the cable length past any limitations of poor quality cables. according to wikipedia

"Although no maximum length for an HDMI cable is specified, signal attenuation (dependent on the cable's construction quality and conducting materials) limits usable lengths in practice."

According to their documentation, a signal booster could remedy a blinking picture, or issues with decoding the signal being sent if its encrypted.
I have a 15m cable between PC and TV/AMP and still get 1080P and Doulby Digital+ on the 15m cable. So the cable either works or not, being digital.

Hmm.
Not meaning to cause an argument - moreover a discussion:

When you push it down long cables and especially at 1080p it can cause dropout or curruption of the signal due to signal loss. Yes it's digital but if the 0's and 1's don't get to the other end as the correct 0's and 1's then you have problems. I have a 15m HDMI (cheaper cable) and will only work at 720p properly on my monitor on the otherside of the room.

If you can do 1080p over 15m ya cable is probably better than the one I have or the kit better at handling it. I'm not sure I use mine enough to warrant a booster but then again it's only £19.95 which is pretty good imo.

Basically ya right a HDMI is a HDMI cable for short cables. For long cables they aren't all equal but most people will never need to send it 15m+ so will never run into the issues. I get "sparkles" on my display at 1080p which resembles interferance on an old TV. Known issue when over long cables. Most PS3 games I play though are in 720p so doesn't matter as that works fine.

I did consider wireless HDMI but worried about the signal lag it may introduce.

This is the reason fiber optic cable is used for long distance data send and receive, like subsea controls, ROV telemetry etc, even telecoms over huge amounts of miles. Ethernet has limitations, HDMI has limitations.

For long runs of cable, this could occur.

dont just worry about signal lag, more wireless hdmi systems are also compressed and lossy, so the picture looks poor.
Or alternatively get these and run a pair of CAT6 cables between them.

I have 1080p running over 35 metres on a similar setup.

Do these require a power source?

No power source required. If you're using them on something like a Sky box with only one HDMI output then you'll need a splitter which will require a 5v supply. Also, if it's for a Sky box don't forget to run a length of co-ax with the CAT6 cables to allow you to change channels using a magic eye type device.
