Samsung One Connect Cable Splicing?
I recently purchased a Samsung UN55KS8000F, and mounted it on the wall. This unit comes with the Samsung One Connect Box (OCB), which is Part # BN91-17814W, and connects to the TV with the Samsung One Connect Cable.
I have the TV mounted on the wall, with a hole directly behind it leading to a conduit that runs down to the floor, inside the wall, which allows for a completely hidden, in-the-wall cable. The conduit running inside the wall is about 3/4" in diameter, which makes it plenty big enough for the cable itself, but not the connector at the ends, which are large and flat, and measure over 1 1/4" across. So, there is no way to pass one of the ends down through the wall.
I was thinking that I could cut off one of the ends, feed the cable down, then splice the connector back on once it's through. But I wanted to ask the community here, before I go ruining a $100 cable with an experiment that might not even work.
