It is not hdmi over cat 5 converter.

It is expecting hdmi cable to be connected to it.

Choices are, add in an extra cable of the right spec.
Or buy hdmi over cat 5 converters

As per James' post, you've installed the wrong cable. Your only option if the cable can't be replaced is to terminate one of the cat 5's with RJ45 connectors and use an ethernet to HDMI converter at each end.

Cheers guys will get the ethernet to hdmi adapters but surely it works in the same way? At the end of the day you've only got 16 cores with 2 cat5s. The ethernet to hdmi must use the same cores to corrospond to the hdmi outlet?

No, the HDMI cable carries an HDMI signal.
The HDMI to ethernet converter converts the HDMI signal to an ethernet data signal, which is transmitted over 2 pairs (4 wires) of the cat 5 cable and then converted back from the data signal to an HDMI signal.
