    I currently use a component extender but my new 4k HDR TV doesn't support. What type of HDMI Extenders will work with 4k HDR? Thanks.

    It is possible that your 4k TV does support Component.
    Take a look to see if you have a pigtail that came with it. It will have a small plug that goes into a particular spot of the TV and 5 short connectors that the Component cables will plug into.
    If not, give us the brand name and model number of the TV so we can look at it's manual.

    Yes, if you would give more technical details...
    Normally HDMI extender/splitter what supporting UHD/4K, must be HDMI 2.0b/HDCP 2.2 compliant.

    The TV actually belongs to a local restaurant and they were using component video adapters to reach all TV's in the building. I was told that they did not see any component adapters come with the TV but are looking again. I figured if they are going to have to go another way they might as well use HDMI extenders which should help the video. But will a standard HDMI extender be fine with a 4K TV?

    well, the model have only 3 HDMI inputs
    so, you are on right track - looking for HDMI extender...
    what max distance between your source (is it C61K client ?) and the TV ?

    then you should looking into obtaining C61K, as it's only one DTV device/client[!] what produce UHD/4K video... the trick is - you need a server what would stream 4K program to the client
    so, there are two of kind: old - HR54 and new, headless HS17 (read here that threads what full of info about the two models)

    He said it was in a restaurant, the only way you can get a C61K in a restaurant is if you sign up for 4K service and it requires buying an HR54 + C61K for each TV.

    If you want to extend HDMI (whether 1.4 for an HD receiver or 2.0 for the HR54/C61K combo) there are plenty of extenders that will work over twisted pair on Monoprice, Newegg, Amazon etc.
