    Linus, I ordered one bc a client has a DVI control cable ran to his TV (early 2000 pioneer elite) behind brick (fireplace). He wants a new TV but doesn’t want to make holes and spend 10k on a carpenter. We were able to cut a dvi open and crimp the ends to a RJ45 and use a Atlona 4K hdmi balun. However this is much cooler, even if it’s only 1080 and was fun to R&D.

    HAHAHAHA, Linus. The tap water conducted the signal because there’s already sufficient salt in it. To remove the conductivity, you’d had to use water with absolutely NO salt. Adding more salt wasn’t going to make the tap water more conductive. HAHAHAHA

    Okay from now I'll start my own network channel with graphic contents. Droppin transmitter wire in Atlantic ocean and if you waana receive signal just buy and plug a receiver to you screen and and dip the end wire in your nearest water body just make sure it's connected to an ocean.
