Thank you for suggestions. Although the cable is in the wall, it doesn't matter. It's not squished in there or ran against electric wire... It's just guided through an empty wall, that's all. I...

Long story short: I have a Yamaha RX-V575 reveiver that seems to be incompatible with Sony HW40ES projector, as they tend to lose handshake very often during playback. I troubleshoot every single...

Forget about cables. They either transmit signal or don't. This looks like some kind of processing error. You get red and greens but no blues. I doubt a cable can choose a color to drop.

1075 regular everyday price is somewhere between 750 and 775. Paying more is a mistake.

Right now W1070 is $680.
