I have 2 75' Blue Rigger HDMI cables installed in a clients home. I did not realize the cables were directional and they are both installed in the wrong direction. Is there anything I can do with these cables to send video across them? Any suggestions are appreciated!

Nope. There's a distinct transmit / receive end with the active cables. The chip(s) are one end or the other.

Yes take em out and instal the way they are meant to go, If I paid someone to do the job I would expect it done RIGHT or no pay.
If thats not what happens I would get another contractor and see you in small claims court for what I paid the next guy.
