PowerBridge HDMI-1-CVS-BK Component/S-Video/HDMI Decora-Style Insert - Black

  • One wall plate allows HDMI, Component and S-Video connections
  • Fits Decora-style wall plates (sold separately)
  • Front and back female connector, therefore no adaptors are needed
  • Non-circuited, passive connector works with all versions of HDMI

This home theater wall plate by PowerBridge combines three different types of video cabling into one, allowing you to connect your TV, satellite, Blu-Ray player and many more devices. By using this wall plate, eliminate unsightly audio/video cables that run along your baseboards, walls and floors and divert them to run behind the walls for a clean and professional look. This insert by Powerbridge fits in a Decora-style wall plate (sold separately).

The port is a non-circuited passive connector that works with all versions of HDMI. Both sides of the insert are female connectors, therefore standard component, s-video and HDMI cables can be used and no adaptors are needed for installation. This product is sold as a single unit therefore you will need a second insert to complete the installation properly. Once the two inserts are installed in their desired location, connect the A/V source, like your stereo receiver, DVD or Blu-Ray player, to the first port. Connect the two ports together inside your wall with appropriate cables and complete the installation by connecting your display or HDTV to the second port. If you are installing this port in one room in your home and connecting to a source in a different room, you will need an IR Receiver Kit to control your device.

Note: When installing an HDMI cable behind walls, please verify that the cable is CL2 or CL3 rated to meet local fire codes. Be sure to get a CL-Rated HDMI cable for in-wall installations and a quality HDMI Cable to complete your installation, each sold separately. Read More
