DirecTV C31 Genie Mini, AppleTV and 75' HDMI Cable
Please forgive if I haven't included (or included too much) information with this post, but I'm hoping someone will be able to solve this problem.
I've run into an issue with the DirecTV C31 Genie Mini and a 75' HDMI cable I recently purchased. Here's the issue...
I have 2 C31 Minis in my basement. One is connected to my Sony Bravia TV via a 50' HDMI cable. The other is connected to a Vizio TV via 75' HDMI cable (26 AWG, CL3 rated, Cat 2 certified, Built in Signal Booster to support up 720p, 1080i, 1080p and up. Ethernet Channel, Audio Return Channel, 1440p and 1080p FullHD Res, Transfer Rates of at least 10.2Gbps).
Both Genies display perfectly on the Sony TV via the 50' cable. But neither will display anything with the 75' cable. The Vizio screen just reads "No Input". Sounds like a cable issue, right? But then if I connect my AppleTV to the 75' cable it displays perfectly on the Vizio display.
I tried calling DirecTV to no avail. Does anyone know why neither Genie Mini will work with the 75' cable, but my AppleTV works?
I am aware that I could simply run Coax from the satellite splitter to bring the Genie closer to the Vizio, but I'm just trying to figure out why my setup isn't working as is...
Thanks for any help.
