Good to know. The place I ordered from didn't carry anything shorter than the 60 footer, so that is what I got. They were $100 cheaper than what Celerity wants for the 30 footer from their site, though, and could ship immediately. I should have it tomorrow. Plus if I ever move to a projector in a booth behind my current room, I will have plenty of cable length to get there without buying something else. Again, assuming this fixes the noise issue. Back it goes if it doesn't.

FYI

You can save some dollars by ordering the new Sony FMP-X10 from Amazon instead of Sony.
They are offering the same preorder discount
If you have Amazon Prime the shipping is free and no sales tax

Amazon does collect sales tax now, at least in certain jurisdictions...

In my case I saved the sales tax. Almost $50.00

If the "store" you buy from has an outlet in your State you will be charged sales tax. If they don't you will not pay sales tax.

For orders that come from Amazon LLC I am charged sales tax now too, perhaps because they have a fulfillment center in my State?

More and more states are striking deals with major online retailers to collect state sales tax - NJ has for over a year, I think NY as well...not sure where else...but the tax benefit of online purchasing will continue to diminish I think.

As noted, the it's a third party seller on amazon, they are not compelled to collect the state tax unless they operate in that state

It should? It will unless there other other electrical connections causing the ground loop.

It "should" if the loop was solely isolated to the hdmi cable, first without then with all other connections made. If not, and the loop is caused by electrical connections or other signal connections, then it will remain. I thought the description was pointing the loop solely to the hdmi. I had to track down a ground loop in my theater and it was a real pain to isolate. After process and elimination, it ended up being a defective amp...so you never know.
