I found an inexpensive gadget http://amzn.com/B0089NLSGU from Sewell that lets me convert from HDMI to a single CAT5e and it works, to my surprise. The problem is that when I have the HDMI to CAT5e gadget turned on, my UHF remotes mostly stop working.
I put a coax between the receiver and remote antenna and switched the remotes to the "B" band. These changes help a bit but the UHF remotes pretty much need to be in the same room as the receiver to work. When I turn off the HDMI to CAT5e device, the UHF remotes work fine. I thought there was no CEC on the 722?
Any ideas? The best ideas I can some up with are to try to find the CEC cable and cut it; or find a component to HDMI converter and use that to go from the receiver to the HDMI to CAT5e box. Any other suggestions? I suppose I could use Google TV and Sling but don't like the buffering and delay with the software remote. I would like to be able to use the real remotes.
