Best way to test HDMI cable before in-wall installation ?
Hi guys ... I have a few long HDMI cables which I'd like to test thoroughly before I do an in-wall installation ... One is the BlueRigger 75ft HDMI cable, and the other is one of those 60ft long RedMere cables from Monoprice .... I need to install both.
Both cables will be used to connect AVR with the projectors.
So far I've tested the RedMere cable a little:
* Watched Thor: TDW in 3D
* Played NFS: Rivals on my PS4 for about 30 minutes
* Played Tomb Raider on my PS4 (its 1080p and 60 fps) for about 15 minutes.
So far its fine, but is there something else I can do to test the bandwidth limits of the cable ? I mean really push it to the limit ?? For example, any test video files with an extremely high bitrate or something ?
I want to be absolutely sure (to the extent possible, of course!) that the cable is 100% reliable before I do an in-wall install, because changing the cable later on will be virtually impossible for me.
