Onkyo TX-SR804 --> Monoprice (MP) Cat2 20' HDMI --> MP HDMI Extender/Repeater --> MP Cat2 20' HDMI --> Panny AE3000
I thought the repeater would enable me to keep the signal, but with no luck. After scouring other forums, it appears the culprit could be the cables, the receiver, the projector (rumor has it that it needs a strong signal). I just don't know where to begin.
Should I try to forgo the 2 cables and get a single 40' cable, place the extender/repeater at the end of that run, get a M/F adapter or a short cable (3 ft) and plug into the projector?
Unfortunately I don't have any other HDMI sources I could use to test the jacks on the projector apart from my receiver.
Any advice would be appreciated.
I have some suggestions but i don't know well they may work.
1. You can try and get the supposedly (i say supposedly because I dont have first hand experience) best available cable for long runs. Belden BJC Series-1. http://www.bluejeanscable.com/store/...bles/index.htm
2. You could always place a 2nd equalizer to the setup.
Like I said I don't know if these suggestions will help. Just something for thought. I am interested how it goes, because i have a 80 foot HDMI project that i'm looking into.
