Sky Q over CAT 6

IMG_6167.jpeg

Hi everyone. Has anyone had any luck with transmitting Sky Q in UHD over CAT 6. 

Using Orei 1x2 extender (UHD12-EX115K) and works great at 1080p. Whenever I try to change to 2160 it looks like the image attached. Is this due to the 2160/50hz that Sky Q is locked to? Would seem that the extender supports 4k30 and 4k60. Does that mean 4k50 isn't going to work? 

Decent CAT 6 cables installed - the photos taken are with a short patch lead so not related to the cable. Any help or advice appreciated. 

Thanks!

How long is the CAT6?

 

For testing purposes, you can get 2150/60 out of a Q box in the apps if you play US content and have the refresh rate option set. (It doesn't support 24, just uses 60 so quite useful for this)

Thanks - I will try using an app to check (if I can navigate to it!). 

sorry - thought I had added - this photo/test was literally with just a brand new CAT 6 0.5m patch cable so nothing of concern in the length of cable.
