Best Brand for Cat 6 to hdmi? Gefen? Hall Research? Key digital....Would prefer something that only needs power on one end and has an option for an HDMI splitter...Also need cat 6 cables in various lengths with rubber shielding

We have a bunch of Atlona Roadnet boxes, but they discontinued it.  I like the ethercon connections which no one else seems to have.

Before you jump on that bandwagon...

I have been having more and more issues with the Atlona HDBT units we have been using. We've using a maximum of 210' CAT6a with an industrial jacket.

Dropouts and flickering have been the main issues.

I am hoping to test our units today in a controlled environment to see if the issues are related to cable length, unit malfunction, or HDCP/EDID incompatibility.

Same issues here, I work for a national AV provider and have seen these issues as well with the Atlonas. The only thing I've been able to narrow it down to is sensitivity to static build-up/discharge near the units. Nothing else seems to explain it.

Hall Research has been quite solid for me. 
The most prone to issues, across multiple parts of their line, has been Atlona.
