I am having a lot of problems getting this cable to synch up between my DIRECTV HR-44 DVR/ Anthem AVR/65" 930D-
1-I've tried the mCable from my DVR to Anthem then an 18GB HDMI to 930D HDMI 1.....can't synch up consistently (DVR settings Native Resolution ON, all resolution chosen OR just set to 720p)
2-I've tried a regular 18gb HDMI cable from DVR to my Anthem, then mCable to 930D HDMI 1 (DVR settings Native Resolution ON, all resolution chosen OR just set to 720p)
I just can't lock on the signal...or it will lock on, work great, then next time I turn setup on, to watch TV, nothing on, and I must drag out another HDMI cable, omit the mCable, and then I am fine...
Am I missing something with this cable? ( I am either connecting power USB to AVR or 930D, dependent on cabling); the only thing I haven't tried is powering USB cable directly to AC outlet via phone charger plug...
By the way, when it does work properly (big if), the picture is definitely improved, that's what is SO frustrating about this thing....
