Does anyone have a solution for passing HDMI to HDMI cable from through a wall without having to drill a giant hole? I know I can convert it to a lower grade signal but I would like to keep the HDMI quality.

I know there are expensive transmitter/receiver devices that can do this but I would rather stay cheap.

Thanks

Converting to a lower grade signal but keeping HDMI quality is a contradiction in terms, but you are already aware of that.

Running the wire (through a hole) or wireless are about your only options.

There is a "mini HDMI" connector which would require a smaller hole that you can use..

AMAZON SEARCH

You will of course need a mini HDMI to HDMI adapter to get the cable end back to standard HDMI size..

There are HDMI wall plates for that purpose. You still have to cut a hole in the wall, but the plate doesn't look any worse than an electrical outlet.

Good chance you already have many holes you can make dual purpose. The TV will plug into an outlet correct? Pull that outlet out and see if you can fish your HDMI cable.

On my trailer running wires in the ceiling would be easy. You can remove things like the ceiling vent covers and AC vent covers to access the attic space.

I use this - wireless HDMI


It worked great, no running of cables when that is hard to do. I had one on the trailer, I can turn the TV on Satellite and pick a channel, turn on the transmitter and go outside and watch the same program outside.

The new trailer has a satellite plug outside so it is now just sitting in my garage collecting dust.

Ouch, $250 MSRP seems a bit rich compared to a cable..

Drilling a hole in the wall and running $20 worth of cable would seem to be much more in line with OPs request..

Alternately as someone else mentioned, HDMI wall jacks can also be put in..

If you want wired, you can also use HDMI to Ethernet such as this Digital HDMI Extender By Single Cat 5E/6.

agreed its costly !

I was lucky enough to have a coworker who had one that he didn't need any more..... AND I wanted the TV outside and was NOT drilling holes to access an HDMI cable outside....

That's how I got mine and it worked awesome !

I used a HDMI splitter and HDMI to coax and back to HDMI for the kitchen TV.
