FYI not just any HDMI port will necessarily solder up. Often times the solder patterns vary between connector brands. I don't know what Yamaha used, but I advise you to not just buy the first HDMI connector you see. You may need to open it up and figure out if there's a brand stamped anywhere on the connector.
Heavy cables need to be externally supported at the right angle or you need to use port savers. Lesson learned there I hope.
