Simple device that just works. There is not much to review on this device. It is a simple product designed to replace the HDMI port provided power with a consistent 5V from the RapidRun.The device is used in cases where the receiver or other device (Onkyo receivers are known for this) do not provide a consistent 5v of power. The result is that some extenders or long cables do not work properly. The RapidRun resolves this by ensuring the needed power is provided by the port.Simple to use. Just unplug the HDMI cord from your device and plug it into the RapidRun then plug the RapidRun in where your HDMI cord was previously connected. Plug in the AC Adapter and you are good to go.This is a simple solution for what can cause big problems. I have 3 of them now (one for each Onkyo receiver I have) and highly recommend them. 5RapidRun HDMI Voltage Inserter The RapidRun voltage inserter is a device which goes between an HDMI source (BluRay player, Satellite receiver, etc.) and its destination device (HDTV, HDMI splitter, etc.) to provide power down the HDMI line.A number of HDMI devices get their power from two conductors in the HDMI line and some devices (displays) must see voltage on these two wires before they will operate.Why the need for an inserter??? Some source devices have poor quality HDMI power. There are a number of satellite receivers that have poor HDMI power, and long HDMI lines can be a cause of poor power at their ends. The voltage inserter removes the poor power source and replaces it with its own supply, thereby eliminating problems associated with HDMI power issues.The RapidRun inserter is one of a few devices made for this purpose, and does the job quite well. It has a small "wall-wort" switching power supply attached to its male-female adapter plug with a 4 foot cord. Only a few caveats with this device:The power comes out the female end of the adapter. In some cases, a second (and possibly a third adapter) are needed to get the power flowing the proper direction. In most cases however, the male end fits the source device and the female end will be in the correct alignment for power delivery. Another problem with this device is the HDMI Line adapter construction which is slightly flimsy and can fall apart relatively easily. Its pins can also be damaged more easily compared to other HDMI devices since they aren't anchored all that well, but if this device is properly inserted into an HDMI line and left there, these failings shouldn't present problems.Aside from these minor shortcomings, the RapidRun voltage inserter is a valuable device for those applications where it is needed, and performs well in typical applications. It's also a good device to have in a troubleshooter's handbag to check for HDMI source power supply issues. 4Works as advertised -- but understand the problem it's trying to solve! This gadget is a godsend for a very particular problem. If you have that problem it'll solve it. If you have a different problem, it will not.Here's the problem it solves. Some HDMI sources (receivers, DVD players, cable boxes, etc.) put out an HDMI signal that's a little lower in voltage than it should be. Normally this isn't a problem. However, if you are running a long length HDMI cable, and/or have switch boxes, extenders, or whatnot between the source and the display, the lower voltage can cause artifacts -- primarily "sparkle" in the picture, some green pixels, and/or audio drop outs.What this device does is "pump up" the voltage of the HDMI signal so that it's correct/sufficiently high. You place the male end of the device directly into the HDMI port of the offending source device, and the cable into the female end of this gadget.Here's the problem this does not fix. Long length HDMI cable runs -- even using extenders -- can themselves result in signal attenuation (with the same resultant artifacts, unfortunately), even for HDMI sources that pump out the correct voltage. So adding this to a particular source will not solve the problem. Instead, you'll likely need an HDMI booster or repeater, which is installed at/towards/close to the *display* end of the HDMI cable run, not at the source end, like this gadget. (Note I do not have this particular problem, and therefore don't know which booster/repeater works the best.)Fortunately, there is a very easy way to tell which problem you have. You need to have at least two sources -- a DVD player, a set-top box, a receiver, etc. If only *one* source causes artifacts, and the other source(s) work just fine with your long cable run, then the problem is that the offending source is pumping out a low voltage signal, and this gadget will correct the problem when installed at that source. If *all* sources cause artifacts, the likelihood that all of them pump out low voltage signals is very low, and this gadget will more than likely *not* correct your problem (instead, you need a repeater/booster).In my case, my Tivo box was doing just fine, but my Roku box was not. I installed this gadget at the Roku, and now all is well. Note after installing this gadget, it is best to power cycle your display (i.e., your TV).Some typical offenders that put out low HDMI voltages include the Roku, as well as various home theater receivers. 5As expected. As expected. 5DId nothing. Tested this using a scan line generator that was get barely getting enough amps and would occasional cut out. This thing did not add any amperage to the 5v rail.I bought it from amazon warehouse deals. 1It didn't work for me. Heres my problem. Well I gave it three stars because it seems the product is good quality and I was able to return it easy enough. Now, the reason I returned it was because it didn't seem to work for the problem I am having. So, in turn I don't even know if it does work.My setup: I have my Samsung Bluray Player (BD-5500) hidden out of site, connected to my Samsung LCD (46" 7series TOC) through a 25ft HDMI cable (it just some cheapie cable bought here on Amazon).My problem: Most of the time when I turn the player on with the remote, the LCD wont even recognize it, or it will then quickly flicker off (well, the players not off, just not displaying). I could turn it off and on a few times and it will catch on or I could try turning it on manually (without the remote) and that will usually work, for some reason. So, when it does stay on and I'm watching a disk or even Netflix, randomly (or if I'm watching something for like 20min or so), the image and sound will flicker off, stay off for around a minute or two then come back on. Once it begins acing up it'll start to do the flicker non-since like every five minutes. I've been just quickly pushing pause and waiting for it to come back on, or when it seems like its taking a long time I toggle though my sources to reset the connection and that usually works.I bought this RapidRun HDMI Power Inserter because I was thinking the problem was happening because 25' was too long of a stretch for the HDMI cable and thought more power with this adapter would get a stronger signal to my LCD. I plugged in the device right off of the Bluray player (the source end) like it said to, but it didn't fix my problem. So I sent it back. Not knowing if it even was working or not there was no way to tell, it just didn't help me.What I may try: I'm going to set the Bluray Player up right next to the LCD with a much shorter, different brand, HDMI cable that I have and see if I still have the same (above) problem. If the connection is better (no flickering non-since) I'll know it is the cable and the RapidRun probably didn't work in providing sufficient source power. If the problem continues with the shorter cable then it may be the player itself.Sorry for the long read, I was trying to get my point out. I should throw this up on some related topic forums and see if anyone has had the same problem or knows of fixes. If you read this and can throw in some knowledge then post a comment please!Thanks 3Helped partially I bought this to fix a problem with covering distance (25 ft) of HDMI on my Onkyo receiver. I tried several cords, and only experienced it with the longer runs. It helped the HDMI signal from cutting out for the first couple of weeks. It still would randomly, just not as often.Then ~1 month after I bought it, it started injecting scrolling lines through the image. Once again, it did not do this with other cables / without the inserter. I eventually pulled it out of the back of the receiver trying to switch to a different cable again, and the entire thing came apart.It didn't last very long, or work very consistently for the price paid. 2Five Stars Works exactly as advertised. Allowed me to run 90ft with HDMI to Ethernet converters with no noticeable quality loss. 5Didn't work for what I needed/expected it to do. Unfortunately this didn't work. It should inject voltage into the line, which should ALSO activate the circuitry on a redmere cable (I tested this already and it does function with a bench power supply) For whatever reason, however, this is not performing the same way and doesn't get the redmere chip to activate.I tried it on both long and short cables to be sure, and it was a no go. So good in concept, poor in execution. 2Did the trick! I have an Onkyo TX-SR607 receiver with an LGBD390 bluray player feeding one HDMI input and a HiDef Cable box feeding another HDMI input. My display is a BENQ PE8720 720p projector mounted on the ceiling. I am using the HDMI input on the projector and the HDMI output of the receiver. I have a wall mounted HDMI plate that converts the HDMI signals into 2 cat6 connections. I have run two 50' cat6 cables through my walls and ceiling to another wall plate converter. Before using the rapidrun I could only get the bluray player HDMI (by itself, bypassing the receiver) output to be recognized and displayed by the projector. Only after inserting the rapidrun directly onto the output of the receiver did the projector recognize and display the images coming from the receiver. Everything now works as designed. On a side note, make sure to always plug the male end of the rapidrun HDMI connector into the source (receiver, bluray player, etc) side of the HDMI cable (if not directly to the source itself) and NOT at the female side. I accidentally did this at first and it of course did not work. Basically the rapidrun disconnects the pin carrying the +5V signal from the source on its male HDMI connector and then supplies its own beefed up +5V power to its female HDMI connector. So for the rapidrun to be effective, the female end must always go to the target device and not the source device. 5
