I have an odd glitch with Redmere cables. I don't think it's the F8500. My setup is DirecTV>Oppo103D>Samsung F8500>to Onyko via HDMI 3 (ARC) all with Redmere cables. When using a standard HDMI cable from tv via HDMI3 (ARC), and with Anynet CEC turned on, I have no problems and ARC works just fine. I can turn on and off the receiver with tv remote and I get sound. However, when I use a redmere cable the final leg, I can turn receiver off and on with tv remote, but get no sound. I even switch the ends of the cable, and still no sound. I know the cable work fine as I tested it with another device directly to tv. Does the redmere cable require both the video and audio to pass through, and not just the audio?I have tried with another Redmere cable and get same result. Bizarre that a $3 HDMI cable works with ARC, but the Redmere doesn't.
