This is a post I recently made on another thread which seems relevant to this current discussion. Any advice would be appreciated.
I have a 50' run with a Sony 1000ES 4k projector to source. I can run the HDBase-T Atlona Baluns AT-HD4-V110SR with a 50' cat 6 shielded solid core cable or do a diagonal shortcut/detour out of my wire mold metal conduit and run a high quality 35' hdmi cable spec' at 21 gbps from projector to blu-ray player.. What is the best and more future proof solution?
If I run the 35' hdmi, could it still pass high speed specs at 35'? If I add a processor like a Darbee or a Lumagen then I need another 4' hdmi cable... will this put the cable length over the edge, or is the second small hdmi run reamplified with the video processor so it's not part of the equation?
Wonder if this Atlona has any of the flickers or drop outs (when ac kicks on etc...) that has plagued many of the earlier baluns? Has anyone tried this new Atlona Baluns. It can handle 4k 3d to 60hz...so it seems very future proof.http://www.atlona.com/ATLONA-HDMI-EX...-SUPPORT..html
