4.0 out of 5 stars Works OK on its own, but not with a splitter, 13 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: MultiCable - High Speed 15M HDMI Cable 2.0 with Ethernet 26 AWG Supports 3D 4K & Audio Return Channel - Ultra HD 15 Meter (Electronics)
I got a 15m version of this cable to connect my Sky HD box to my Optoma HD25-LV projector. It works fine when used to connect them directly. However, when I inserted a NEET 2-way HDMI splitter between the Sky box and this cable, it no longer works. I tried it in both the output ports of the splitter, and into the TV, and it didn't work. Repeating the exercise with a much shorter cable, and all connections work.

Neet say that, in their extensive experience of HDMI, the issue is probably the thickness of the conductors in the cable being too small for a 15m run. They recommend 24AWG for 15m. This cable is 26AWG (which is a smaller cross section). Alternatively, they suggest I get a signal booster box. I've not yet decided what to do. I don't really want another box in the system, but a 24AWG cable is very expensive.

Physically the cable and connectors seem fine.

Dear Costomer
Please note that This matter concerns to the techinal features of the HDMI splitter that you use

Please see a example of other HDMI splitters (Labgear HDM2SP2 2 Way HDMI Splitter) the maximum input of HDMI for it is 15M 26AWG,but this is the maximum length,so if you use a 15M 26awg hdmi cable for the splitter you whant to use it can make a problems.

Your correct that if you whant to use this Spliter that you have it needs a thicker conductor 24AWG, we suggest that you change to 22M,24AWG instead of 15M 26AWG.
