I do not know if anyone has asked this but curios if cable voltage standard ever came close to bridging the gap.

The reason I ask this, is because a new cable standard for the Home theater market should arrive this year where all cables leading to the HD tv will be removed and only require a cat5 cable to be used. The article also says that cat5 will also supply 100 watts of power to the HDTV.

There is not a set voltage point it depends on the type of circuit.

I had to explain on the CG forum how T1 was not ethernet and you can't plug a T1 line into a switch to 'extend it'

:bang:

are you talking about HDBaseT? I have seen a lot of products out there already for it in the trades. I know they are bumping up the power for PoE+ (power over ethernet "plus") 802.3at to 51W. Apparently also low-voltage contractors will be able to install LED lighting since the cabling can be UTP like data drops with patch panels and switches controlling lights.

That's got to be the dumbest thing I have heard at least today. Who do you mean by LV contractors? Apparently somebody thinks it's the IT geeks because you mention UTP like data drop with patch panels.

I have news for you. Real LV guys can install LED lighting now provided it is class 2 and they know how to wrap wires around a screw. You are right, that would leave the geeks out.
