I don't have allot of experience with baluns, something that will change in the future. But considering the varied amount of people on this board, someone else might know the answers to some questions I have.
Can a normal VGA over Cat5/6 balun use a hub/switch to multiply its signal?
For example this balun from Monoprice
is a simple point to point balun. Could I buy a second kit, and run the source module to a hub (I would assume a switch would break things as it tries to be smart) and then two receiver modules from that hub?
The main reason I ask, is that another company sells a "special hub" for their own balun, and the prices are much more extreme. (I am guessing the special hub is just a normal 5 port hub with one port hard fixed to "up link" or cross over.) For example, this kit
, this hub
, and these additional receivers
are all made to work with each other. The only thing that stands out, to me, about this setup is that the hub specifically has grounded ports to support STP cables and plugs.
