Works OK on its own, but not with a splitter
, 13 Oct. 2013
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.
