My set up. Oppo 103, Marantz AV 7005 pre amp, Epson 5020. Just finihsed installing my new BD player, pre and PJ. Did a dry run with 60 foot Monoprice HDMI RedMere cable. Everything perfect, picture, sound etc. Passed a 3D signal through the Marantz 7005 without a hitch. No buzzing or noise in the speakers.
I now run the 60 foot HDMI cable around the unfinished side of the room, lots of 120 volt lines, houses main ground wire. Really have no choice how it has to run as the 60 foot cable just makes it by inches. It is right next to the 120 volt lines, can't avoid it. Hook everything back up and I have a bad buzz/hum from my speakers, running 5.2 set up.
Picture seems perfect. I did go through a bad ground loop hum a few weeks ago which was fixed by a Jennson transformer product in the coax line. Cost $60.00 but worth it. Took the noise right out the speakers, amazing.
I was not interested in the wireless PJ. My first PJ a Panasonic worked with a Blue Jeans 75 foot cable for years but would not pass the 3D signal of the new Epson. This was some fat cable hah. I was hoping I would not have to change it but....Works with 2D, no 3D signal. Cable is 5 years old. If I unplug the HDMI from the PJ, noise goes right away and noise was not there when I had it not the floor for the dry run.
Mono says ferrite might help? Just wondering if they make something else that will shield the cable. Can I sheild the cable myself? Aluminum tape? Just looking for some suggestions as I can't run the cable any other way.
Thanks for the help.
