Well that makes more sense. I have read about there being problems with syncing on runs shorter than 6 feet, but then also read (and experienced) that runs over 12 can pose an issue. So I thought, okay, you must run at least 6 foot cables, but try to stay under 12 feet. Didn't make sense. Thanx.So 5 or 6 footers between devices, even if the total ends up being 30 feet is more likely to work better than adding anything shorter than 6 feet to the mix, correct?
BTW, I have 4 feet of HDMI from source to switcher and then 16 feet to display. Adding in the Darbee, I wanted to not introduce more problems by increasing the total run. I've had this set up for 4 years (minus the Darbee) and initially had issues with sparklies and droputs. Oddly, the solution then was switching what inputs I used for what sources on the switcher.
Anyhow, having PTSD thinking about going through all that (again) now that everything is strapped down.....
